Chasing Superwoman: Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:

The Christian community tends to operate under the assumption that the only women attending church are traditional stay-at-home moms. But in truth, more than 75% of mothers with school-age children work outside the home.

Chasing Superwoman gives these working mothers what they've been craving-a funny, intelligent, relevant exploration of what it means to live out a vibrant faith amidst the many demands placed on their time and energy. Chasing Superwoman provides a much needed dialogue (not a formula) about the complex spiritual struggle of the working mother, plus a lot of laughter and encouragement for working women to embrace their busy life and trust God's grace for getting it all done.

From The Back Cover:

If you've ever forgotton the preschool snacks, juggled Blackberry and diaper bag, and handled a client call over a chorus of "Mommy", this book is for you.

Can a mother of young children be at the top of her profession without sacrificing her family or her faith? Will society and the Christian community even allow her to try?

In Chasing Superwoman, Susan DiMickele confronts these questions with honesty, heart, and humor and offers surprisingly simple yet potentially life-altering answers. This is a book about day care and multitasking, about sacrificed sleep, juggled chores, dueling calendars...but also about faith and joy and love.

As a partner in a law firm and mother of three young children, Susan DiMickele lives in two different worlds and often feels she must leap between them in a single bound, but she's well aware that she's not Superwoman - she doesn't have to be. In this book she offers her fellow working women the gift of laughter, insight, and grace - reminders that God accepts us just as we are.

About The Author:

Susan DiMickele has been a trial lawyer for fourteen years and a mother for eight of those years. While she strives to be at the top of her profession, her greatest accomplishment and challenge is partnering with husband Doug to raise Nicolas, Anna, and Abigail-to know and love God. She lives in Columbus, Ohio with her family.

My Review:

Chasing Supermom combines practical advice, humor, and real life experiences to help working moms get the encouragement they need to do all they do and still live their life for Christ. It is well written and a very quick read. I highly recommend that all working moms read this book! You will be inspired as you read Chasing Supermom! I know I was.

BUY IT: You can purchase Chasing Supermom online, directly through David C. Cook - it is also available through your favorite Christian bookseller.
