I remember the days well. The days where blow-ups happened more often than not. When becoming unglued was a normal occurrence. Not just a once in a while thing.
The days were full of yelling. There were tears. There were moments when I would think I would have a handle then blow up again. I would beat myself up and the cycle would start all over again the next day.
But then, oh then. God touched me. He helped me. I slowly started to recognize my triggers. The unglued moments became less often. I learned how to handle my emotions better, and in turn began embracing imperfect progress.
Moms, can I tell you that there is hope for you too. Believe me there is. Today I am going to share with you three resources that can give hope to the angry mom.
This book changed my life. Seriously. I went through it three times and by the last time, it finally stuck. The first time I realized I blew up regularly. The second time I realized whileI had made progress I was now stuffing instead of exploding. The third time I finally was able to put it all together and make it stick. This book is amazing. But, it is not an overnight fix. It takes work, hard work and it will challenge you.
This video course is new, and honestly, I wish Alicia would have made it sooner. She does a great job helping moms recognize their triggers, and then shows you how to work through them. The course is simple, yet effective and includes printables that help you truly dig into the material. Alicia shares her heart and shows moms how to give grace to those in their home while also allowing them to give themselves that same grace.
I met Christin at Allume a few years ago and she is the real deal. Christin shares her struggles with parenting with grace in this book. Too many times we respond in exasperation instead of in love and grace. How we respond to our children will become how THEY respond to others. That is an ouch thing if you think about it…. That is why this book is such a great resource. She speaks straight to the heart of moms and offers practical guidance on how to respond gently to our children.
Now, I would love to tell you that once you get a handle on your anger issues that you will never struggle again. BUT, that is just not true. However, there is HOPE. There is CHANGE. There is IMPERFECT PROGRESS. The key is to find your triggers, work your way through them, and embrace the changes you need to overcome your anger. The resources above will help. They are great tools. However, the work has to begin in your heart. Make that choice today momma. You CAN do it!
Are you ready to be a less angry mom?
