"'I can't believe I said that. I'm sorry, sweetheart. Please forgive me.' I wasn't exactly 'winning' at motherhood the day I realized I was habitually saying unkind things to my kids-things that I didn't even mean. Blame it on stress, call it bad parenting... the net result was the same- I was wounding my precious kids and I wanted to do better. If you can relate, here's hope: author Sue Heimer gets right to the core of why we yell. Without sending moms on another guilt-trip, Sue identifies common struggles and directs readers to the ultimate source of wisdom and healing: God's Word. Every mom needs this book!"
