Welcome to the Getting Past Perfect Book Club! We're reading Getting Past Perfect: How to Find Joy and Grace in the Messiness of Motherhood, by Kate Wicker.
To Ponder, Reflect, and Discuss:
- What can you do today to respect that your children belong to God first and foremost? Let them create without your unnecessary interference? Allow them to complete chores in their own way? Permit small, amoral choices that may conflict with your own taste or style? (In other words, make room for them to create hideous art, fold towels the "wrong" way, and adopt an unflattering hairstyle.)
- Do you seek constant affirmation for your parenting choices? How can you affirm others' valid choices yet be assured you've done your best for you and your family?
Feel free to comment on your own thoughts from this week's reading, your impressions and reflections, and/or your answers to these questions.
Next week, we'll cover Chapter 5. For the complete reading schedule and information about our Book Club, visit the Getting Past Perfect Book Club page.
