What people are saying:

“Buy this for the new moms in your life, so that on the longest, most
sleepless, most desperate nights of baby life, they’ll feel like they have
two helpful, wise friends in Megan and Laura. What better gift than

Shauna Niequist, author of Cold Tangerines & Bittersweet

“Becoming a mom or dad is scary. One way to address those fears
is by consuming parenting books full of rules, tips, and techniques.
But the truth is, your child isn’t reading those books and doesn’t care
what those authorities say. A better, saner idea is to parent with the
grace, sensitivity, and individuality each kid needs. That’s the powerful
message of Spirit-Led Parenting, and it’s one every mom or dad needs
to hear.”

Jason Boyett, author of O Me of Little Faith: True Confessions of a
Spiritual Weakling

“Spirit-Led Parenting should be on every expectant mother’s
nightstand, regardless of how many children she already has. It is a
treasure of wisdom that is sure to make the first year of a child’s life
much more enjoyable for mom, dad, and baby.”

Alison Strobel/Ali Morrow, author of novels for women and storybooks
for children

“Ever had that nagging fear that you’re gonna screw your kids up for
life? Thank Jesus for Megan and Laura and their sweet, comforting,
Scripture-inspired words of freedom. Spirit-Led Parenting is like a great
big ol’ sigh of peace for your soul.”

Marla Taviano, author of From Blushing Bride to Wedded Wife,
Changing Your World One Diaper at a Time, and Expecting: Praying for
Your Child’s Development – Body and Soul

“As a recovering perfectionist who held herself to unattainable
standards with her firstborn, I can shout from the rooftops with
affirmation that Megan and Laura have given moms a GIFT. The words
in this book are seasoned with friendship, grace, and freedom; reading
it was like drinking coffee with girlfriends who get me.”

Tsh Oxenreider, founder of SimpleMom.net and author of Organized
Simplicity and One Bite at a Time

“Spirit-Led Parenting speaks to the new moms of a new generation
who in all other areas are open to thinking outside the box and
pushing the boundaries of life, but might have gotten tripped up by
claims that there is only one right way to parent.”

Crystal Lutton, author of Biblical Parenting

“Spirit-Led Parenting: From Fear to Freedom in Baby’s First Year is a
beautiful, honest book rooted in the idea that living well with children
calls for faith above facts or rules.”

Kate Wicker , Author of Weightless: Making Peace With Your Body

“I was completely drawn in by Megan and Laura’s words in Spirit-Led
Parenting. I cried my way through the first chapter, recalling the regret
and guilt I experienced through my first days and weeks as a mama. I
wish I would have had this book to lean on then. Thrilled to know that
new moms will have this guide enabling them to enter motherhood
along a path of freedom instead of fear and frustration. “

Jamie Martin, founder of SteadyMom.com and author of Steady Days
and Mindset for Moms
