Hard Is Not the Same Thing as Bad

The Perspective Shift That Could Completely Change the Way You Mother

54321( 5 )


Bestselling author Abbie Halberstadt helps women see how God can use the everyday 
trials of motherhood to radically transform how they view hardship and grow them to become more like Jesus.

“Why me, Lord?”
Amid the toddler tantrums, the mealtime melees, and the backseat blowups, have you found yourself asking God that same question? Maybe even screaming it into a couch pillow? You’re not alone.
Your most trying moments as a mother can quickly spiral into discouragement, hopelessness, and sometimes even resentment toward God or your family—partly because our culture has conditioned us to believe that anything this hard can’t possibly be good for us.
Abbie Halberstadt, author of the bestselling M Is for Mama, shares scriptural wisdom and lessons learned from her own challenges as a mama of ten to help shift your perspective on the hardships of motherhood and of life, in general.
When you begin to see struggles as a necessary part of God’s plan for your spiritual growth, you can discover supernatural peace and purpose, even when you’re down in the deepest trenches of motherhood.

Excellent book! Especially since I am written about in the book

09/07/23 Deborah


This is a resource I will come back to again and again.  Abbie has done an excellent job in pointing readers to biblical truth as they face hard things in motherhood (and, really, life in general).  Far from minimizing hardship, she describes many difficult, challenging, and hurtful types of situations yet meets each with truth, hope, and practical advice.  The book contains helps for approaching different seasons and struggles of motherhood, for facing unavoidable hardships and suffering, and for addressing unnecessary hardships we bring on ourselves (including our own bad attitudes and wrong perspectives). Hard Is not the Same Thing as Bad has something for every mom and is a book I will be gifting many times to friends and new mamas.
