Created to Care is the latest book by blogger, author, and mom Sara Wallace and it is my favorite book for moms. When it comes to books for Christian moms, it seems like there are many options to choose from. What sets Sara's book apart is that it focuses on specific areas of anxiety that are typically unique to the role of motherhood. Being a visual learner, I really loved the chart Sara included on page 21 which demonstrates the expectations we place on ourselves as moms versus what God actual ...more

In this book, Sara Wallace takes an aspect of motherhood that is the source of difficulty at best and guilt and shame at worst and re-frames it in a way that gives purpose and meaning. Every mom struggles with anxiety. Am I doing enough? Am I doing the right things? Will my mistakes ruin my children? Are they safe enough? Are they too safe? We constantly question and second-guess ourselves. As the title says, Wallace shows how mothers were "created to care" and how when we take our concerns and ...more

Motherhood is filled with days of joy but also days of anxiety. We worry about big things and small things alike. What is one to do when they are filled with worry and concern over the lives entrusted to them by God? In "Created to Care", Sara Wallace draws moms who are busy and filled with concern over their children to run to Jesus. She reminds us that we have been created to by God to care for the lives of our children and He has provided hope and stability in the life and work of Jesus. I lo ...more

When I first saw the title of this book, I thought, "Well, I'm not really the anxious type, but I'll read it anyway." I assumed the "anxious mom" was someone who would have panic attacks or helicopter parent because they were worried about their child getting hurt all the time. But, reading this book helped me realize that I am an anxious mom! Every little worry we have as mother, from what our children eat to how well-groomed they are to what are other moms going to think of this decision makes ...more

As a mom, who suffers with anxiety (both health and spiritual-related), this book was such a good read for me. Although, I don’t agree with Sara Wallace on every point of theology on a personal level, this book is firmly rooted in the Bible. I appreciated her simple style that was full of Biblical truth. We as Moms need to let go of our expectations and rely fully on Christ for outcomes in our children’s lives.
I highly recommend this book.

*I received this book free as a review copy. All opinions

I never realized how anxious I was until I had children. Through my first son’s early life, I was anxious about everything. After having my second child the anxiety still lingers especially because he is a risk taker. Sara’s book is a great reminder to place our worries in God’s hands. He is in control of their lives no matter what harm may come to them physically. I appreciate the Biblical references in this book and the personal examples Sara shares. At the end of each chapter she includes oth ...more

Great book on how to filter our parental anxieties through the lens of the gospel...very liberating, truthful, and hopeful book. Full of helpful thoughts on parenting, in light of God’s goodness and sovereignty. I love how this author shares practical, real life examples of the points she is making. Quick, easy read.

As moms, there are so many things to be anxious about. In “Created to Care, Sara Wallace points readers to God’s word.We weren’t created to be anxious for our kids, but to care for them as God cares for us. “Anxiety is one of those ‘good works’ prepared for us. Anxiety skews our ability to see those good works clearly.... God calls us to care and to trust.”
