Rules and myths of motherhood. That's what we'll talk about on Chris Fabry Live. Maggie Combs says if you're a stressed-out mom, you may believe in a standard you were never meant to live up to. She'll give us the Gospel Truth. Then, Becky Baudouin joins us to talk about the ridiculous things we say to moms that may do more harm than good. Don't miss the "mom encouragement" on Chris Fabry Live.
Maggie Combs is the author of the upcoming book Motherhood Without All the Rules: Trading Stressful Standards for Gospel Truths (Moody Publishers, Fall 2020). When motherhood overwhelmed her, God drew her closer to him through writing her first book, Unsupermommy. She loves playing games with her husband and three boys, herding goats on their family farm, and reading young adult literature and cozy mysteries in her free time. It is her joy to disciple women in her local church and through her writing. You may have read or heard Maggie before on The Gospel Coalition, Risen Motherhood, Revive Our Hearts, The Journeywomen Podcast, and more.
