Motherhood is full of uncertainty. What do my children really need? Why are they doing that? Is this normal? What can I do to help them? How can I know for certain that I am doing this right? The logistics are easy. Anybody can do laundry and carpool. But what makes a mother the best mom she can be?

Susan Merrill, author and the mother of five incredibly different children, has asked that question countless times. And she has read countless answers specific to a certain child’s temperament, age, or situation. But nothing she read offered an overall approach to parenting that would enable her to say with confidence, "I am doing this right." She never guessed she would find a foundational plan - a reliable, universal parenting approach - in the Old Testament book of Nehemiah.

In The Passionate Mom: Dare to Parent in Today's World, Susan takes you on a journey through Nehemiah and into the heart of parenting. Her stories and confessions in every chapter reveal what she has learned: no mom can control her child’s future, but every mom can parent well.

MUST read! by ellen on 4/19/2013

This book has been a game changer for me! I couldn't put it down and found that I didn't have to MAKE time to read it but rather just couldn't stop reading it. The author, Susan Merrill, dishes out some amazing, authentic, useful parenting advice. In this book, she uses the 10 P's of parenting (perception, ponder, passion, prayer, patience, preparation, purpose, planning, problem solving and perseverance) to give us mothers some really incredible guidance. To say it is a "must read" is an understatement!

What an amazing journey this book has been able to take me on! I constantly struggle with guilt and how I make mistakes in my parenting. I mean, who doesn't want to be the perfect parent right? I read, and read, and READ every parenting book I can get my hands on, and before I know it I am more confused and more frustrated about what I am actually supposed to do, or NOT do. My children are miserable, my husband is miserable, I am beyond miserable and this downward spiral just keeps happening. Then I read The Passionate Mom- this is real folks. Real life. It's a gentle, forgiving and uplifting guide that will help you to be the very best parent you can be! Simply put, raw emotion and real-life experience from the author reminds us that we are not alone in this parenting journey and that we all have struggles. Although I am not a religious person, Susan has taken simple religious teachings to give us a easy reminder of how to get back to the simple basics. She talks mostly about being passionate but there is such a much bigger lesson to be learned here. Each chapter made me want to go back and read it again, just in case I missed something. It's that good, get this book. You won't be disappointed!

Wow. The Passionate Mom is truly a life changing book. I have been recommending it to other moms since the moment I started reading. And its lessons can be applied to much more than just parenting! The 10 P’s are great lessons that can be applied to anything you are passionate about. The mortar lists at the end of each chapter are great character building traits that I pray I can build within myself and my sons. This is a must read for any Mom and will be my go to baby shower gift! Love it!
