Ask Alice: Drowning in Mom Guilt

In this episode of Ask Alice, Alice discusses the post-Mother’s Day reality that often consumes our daily thoughts – mom guilt. She answers questions from our listeners but also uses her own mom-fail moment to discuss the dangerous, slippery slope that guilt leads to. She distinguishes between Mom-guilt and Mom-shame, and processes the idols that these can expose in our parenting. Using Gospel-centered truths, she illustrates how grace toward ourselves and other struggling moms can end the spiral of unhealthy lies.
