For every parent who has ever laid awake reviewing the mistakes and missteps of their day, Lauren Whitman points them to Jesus, who quiets our distress with his love and forgiveness.

Parents often struggle with four deeply distressing emotions: fear, guilt, shame, and regret. Many parents feel resigned to the fact that these emotions will always just be a part of their experience. But Lauren Whitman, a counselor and mother, helps parents see Jesus's compassion and receive the comfort he offers them in their distress.

While many resources help moms and dads grow in how they parent, few help parents with addressing feelings about unrealistic expectations, perceived mistakes, and supposed failings. When Parents Feel Like Failures is an encouraging, grace-centered book that helps us see ourselves and the Lord more accurately.

  • Learn that God's love has the power to quiet the internal churn of hard feelings that parents experience.
  • Helps parents realistically reflect and evaluate themselves and the job they are doing in a favorable light.
  • Part of the Ask the Christian Counselor series, walking readers through their deepest and most profound questions.
  • Compact format goes deeper than New Growth Press's popular minibooks without overwhelming the reader.
