Publisher's Summary

Mama of 10 Abbie Halberstadt helps women humbly and gracefully rise to the high calling of motherhood without settling for mediocrity or losing their minds in the process.

Motherhood is a challenge. Unfortunately, our worldly culture offers moms little in the way of real help. Mamas only connect to celebrate surviving another day and to share in their misery, rather than rejoice in what God has done and to build each other up in hard times. There has a be a better way, a biblical way, for mamas to grow and thrive. 

As a daughter of Christ, you have been called to be more than an average mama. Attaining excellence doesn't have to be unsettling, but it will take committed focus and a desire to parent well according to God's grace and for his glory. 

M Is for Mama offers advice, encouragement, and scripturally sound strategies seasoned with a little bit of humor to help you embrace the challenge of biblical motherhood and raise your children with love and wisdom. 

Mama, you are worthy of the awesome responsibility God has given you. Now it's time to start believing you can live up to it.

A Great Read

A great reminder and guide to being a Christian Mama in a world that encourages the opposite. M is for Mama even pointed out areas that I was unaware of and can now strive to change. Thank you Abbie Halberstadt for writing this book.

Scripture-Based Encouragement for Mamas

This was exactly what I needed! No mushy, pat-yourself-on-the-back encouragement like the typical motherhood books written these days. This is indeed encouraging, but also SO convicting and very much Scripture-based. The large portion of this book focuses on what we as mamas are called to be in order to raise godly families, and the last part is full of practical advice for parenting. Love love loved it and will be reading it again and recommending to all my mama friends!

Phenomenal! Must read for any parent

My wife listened to this first absolutely loved it and recommended I listen to is as well as we are in the the midst of raising our own 5 children all under the age of 7. I can not recommend this enough to any parent who is burned our tired or just plain lost as to how to biblically parent in our current age. Her humble approach and constant return to scripture is most refreshing and counter cultural even in some evangelical circles. A must read/listen.

Every parents guide to parenting

I was blow away by this book. I’m not someone that enjoys reading books but I could stop listening to this. Maybe 1/4 in I decided to buy the book because it has so much biblical meat that I want to re-read and highlight and journal. So yes I’m planning to go through it again in a few weeks so I can pray and meditate over it. I gush over this book to anyone. I bought a few extra copies to pass out as needed. Thank you Abbie for follow Hods footsteps and writing this book. This once lazy Christian and mom is so grateful.

What an truth-filled, life-giving book!

I have a lot to learn as a first-time mama. I heard about this book on the Fierce Marriage podcast with Ryan & Selena Frederick. This book is full of biblical wisdom, encouragement, as well as practical tools for motherhood. I would even recommend it for fathers too! After listening, I feel so encouraged by Abbie to run to Jesus for strength in every moment as a mama. It’s not about “following the rules” of motherhood. It’s about remembering the gift and responsibility of raising and taking care of little hearts, that we may honor and glorify God in all that we do. Abbie is honest, straight forward, gentle and kind. But listen! She does not sugar coat anything. She shares the truth. I gleaned so much wisdom from listening to this book and using the reflection questions at the end of the each chapter. God has also used this book to grow a huge desire in me to memorize more Scripture. The Word of God is alive and powerful! Thank you, God for this book. Thank you, Abbie, and all who helped in the process. What a blessing to all families this book is.

This mama is on fire!!!

Absolutely LOVED this book! I love all of Abbie’s sound advice and solid understanding of biblical motherhood. It is so refreshing in a world on amuck, when all moms are exhausted and don’t understand where they’re going wrong. This book will help you shed the world and become a joyful mom. Do yourself, and your kids a favor and give it a try. God loves you.
