Overview

2020 PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY BOOK LIFE PRIZE grand prize finalist and Inspirational/Spiritual category winner.

Have you ever laid awake at night and asked yourself, "Why do other moms seem to have it all together when I'm over here exhausted and overwhelmed? Will I ever figure this mom thing out and feel like I'm enough for my kids? When does the worry end?"

If you have, you're not alone. Motherhood is hard whether you are a new mom or an empty nester with 30 years of experience. All moms struggle with these big emotions, which is why Shelby and Lisa wrote this book. How Are You Feeling, Momma? (You don't need to say, "I'm fine.") is a safe space to turn to when trying to manage your biggest fears, deepest regrets, and heartfelt longings as a momma.

In this book, Shelby and Lisa give you a peek into their hearts as they share 62 authentic and candid stories from their motherhood journeys, giving you two perspectives on how they dealt with 31 momma emotions. Whether you feel anxious, afraid, confused, depressed, overwhelmed, worried, or otherwise, their reflections are full of loving encouragement and practical tools to help you process the many emotions of motherhood. In addition, the book contains over 70 scripture verses and Psalms to help you feel fully loved, fully seen, and fully heard as you cling to God's promises and apply them to your mom life. Sometimes simply knowing we aren't alone in how we feel is enough to help us do hard things.

These moms have been through the trenches, a combined 66 years of parenting/stepparenting/grandparenting between them, and their authentic and vulnerable sharing meets you right where you're at as they love you forward.

Editorial Reviews


"I appreciated Spear's and Leshaw's commitment to offering this work as a joint gift to moms. Their different faith backgrounds enriched the reflections and was an example of real-life unity in relationship. In a time where many Americans are divided along the religious and political spectrums, it was refreshing to receive their words. As a momma myself, I found the short chapters honest, approachable, and catalysts of meaningful personal reflection. Thank you, Shelby and Lisa, for creating a work that stitches us closer together in a time of such unraveling." - Ashlee Eiland, author of, Human(Kind)



"An original, helpful, and inspiring book...a must for moms--and parents--everywhere." - Publisher's Weekly 2020 BookLife Prize



"It's in this book where you will find freedom from hiding, from holding in those true emotions, from having to keep it all together with a perfectly coined, "I'm fine." You can be real here. You can be you. You can reveal those sensitive parts and secret struggles as you realize you are not alone."- Christine Carter, author of, Help and Hope While You're Healing



How Are You Feeling, Momma? is helpful, but it is so much more. Eloquently written, fresh, and dear. I felt seen and heard. Perfect.--Jami Amerine, mom of 6 and author of Sacred Ground, Sticky Floors and Stolen Jesus




Shelby is a self-described sappy soul whisperer and sarcasm aficionado who has a deep love for Jesus and storytelling. Most days, she muses in rhetorical wonder over what God was thinking when He put her in charge of three humans. Although God's quick to remind her how capable she is, apparently, He sometimes does so while crossing His fingers behind His back. She is a wife of 28 years and a momma of three 20-something kiddos. As a freelance writer and author, you can find her words in the national publication, Guideposts, and all over the web at places like Her View From Home, Today, Parenting Teens & Tweens, Love What Matters, and others. Shelby also has a new online mothering course called, Mindful Mothering: When You Change the Way You Look at Things, the Things You Look at Change, and she blogs over at shelbyspear.com.
