About The Book

Moms are under so. much. pressure. Pressure that weighs us down and threatens to wipe us out. Are you ready for relief? Mom Set Free will empower you to parent in the confidence of God's grace and to experience the freedom you were created for.

We moms are told that we have to get it all right so our kids turn out right. We’re told that their entire futures are riding on our ability to perfectly orchestrate their lives. And we’re told that the strength of their faith hinges on ours. And we begin to believe that if we just try hard enough, we can actually “be enough.”

These impossible standards leave us stuck in worry, anger, guilt, comparison, and shame. Jeannie Cunnion gets it. And in Mom Set Free she reveals how the Good News of the Gospel empowers us to live—and parent—in the freedom for which Christ has set us free.

Jeannie invites us to journey alongside her as we learn to:
-Lay down what God has not asked us to carry so we can thrive in what He has.
-Embrace our significance in our children’s lives in light of God’s sovereignty.
-Trust God with the children He has entrusted to us.
-Receive God’s grace so we can reflect God’s heart to our kids.

It’s time to breathe deeper, walk lighter, and reclaim the wonder and adventure of parenting.

Karris Hudson, field director/vice-president at Danita's Children/Hope for Haiti Children's Center

“While raising my four sons, I have read my fair share of books on how to show God’s love and grace to my kids, all the while beating myself up for my imperfections and feeling I have fallen short of being the mom I ought to be. The funny thing is, I don’t think I even realized this was happening until I read Mom Set Free. Thank you, Jeannie, for sharing God’s heart, not just for kids, but indeed for us weary moms. Reading this book has been like a full-body dip in the most refreshing stream of God’s love and grace.”
