“Too often we compare our weaknesses with other people’s strengths only to find ourselves coming up short.” We compare our worst to someone else’s best which sets us up to sound like failures. Essentially, we begin lying to ourselves.”
Ruth Schwenk, From Grouchy To Great: Finding Joy In The Journey Of Motherhood

“The home is not just to be a place that looks good or is admired; the home is a place to be lived in for God’s purposes. Our homes are shaping our kids’ hearts. And so, in a very real way, they will always take a piece of our home with them.”
Ruth Schwenk, The Better Mom: Growing in Grace between Perfection and the Mess

“God has given us each of our kids for a greater purpose than just being our son or daughter. Each one is God's own child and will be his forever. As God shapes us, he is shaping them. He is using us to raise them, so that like arrows, they will be released to penetrate the darkness of the world.”
Ruth Schwenk, The Better Mom: Growing in Grace between Perfection and the Mess
