Who Is Superwoman?
Can a mother be at the top of her profession without sacrificing her family or her faith?
by Audra Jennings Tuesday, June 22, 2010
Recognizing that there are no simple answers to merge these sometimes mutually exclusive roles, DiMickele seeks to provide an honest look at the spiritual struggles facing working mothers who are raising young children. She encourages women who balance these demanding dual positions to embrace their roles and trust God to provide strength and wisdom for their journeys. Examining issues ranging from school involvement and shopping excursions, to perpetual exhaustion and church involvement, DiMickele reassures working moms that God accepts them with grace, just as they are. She also encourages them with the knowledge that they are not alone and that God will provide teachable, faith-building moments amid their difficult daily challenges. DiMickele looks through the lens of events that shaped her own spiritual journey and captures many compelling, universal moments that any working mom will recognize.
Chasing Superwoman reflects the day-to-day realities of working mothers of school-age children as they struggle to teach their little ones to know and love God. Juggling a schedule that leaves precious little time to rest in or reflect on God’s promises, DiMickele recognizes that God is ultimately the One in control of her life as well as the lives of her children. As terrifying as it is to realize that no amount of organization will remove the stresses within the role of a working mom, it is reassuring to know that Superwoman is not the ultimate goal. Superwoman doesn’t need Jesus. DiMickele and the women who read her book not only need Him; they are buoyed above the demands of their daily lives by His grace alone and are able to reflect His love back into the lives of their children and co-workers.
