I lost my temper last month with my daughter, Adeline.
I mean lost. my. temper.
It was about 6:45 am and she was fussing about breakfast. It wasn’t hot enough, she didn’t like it, she wasn’t hungry.
You know the drill, right?
Then she somehow tripped while carrying a glass of orange juice (when she shouldn’t have been up from the table) and the glass went flying. Juice was everywhere. The table, carpet, couch — everywhere.
It was at this point that the straw broke the camel’s proverbial back, and I lost it. I yelled and stormed about all the things.
And then, I caught myself. What was I doing? Why was I acting like this? I humbly kneeled down beside Adeline, so I could look her right in the eyes and apologized.
She hugged me tightly and told me she loved me so much. It was very gracious, considering my behavior. I love that little girl, and am grateful for the lessons she and my other kids teach me every day.
I want to be a mom who doesn’t get filled with rage and flies off the handle.
I want to model compassion not frustration.
I want to be a mom who doesn’t lose her temper.
In my life, my tone and my temper have gotten the best of me more times that I can count. As a mom, I find that my kids bring out not only my best, but my worst.
And while sometimes I think I have gotten better, it only takes a morning like that one to remind me that I have a long way to go.
If this story sounds familiar, I want you to know you are not alone.
My dear friend, cheerleader to moms around the world Lisa-Jo Baker and I talk often about the challenges of motherhood. And today, she is launching an inspiring online workshop for moms called The Temper Toolkit. It is exactly the thing I’ve needed to successfully navigate those feelings that can sometimes make me boil over — and even prevent them from happening in the first place.
The Temper Toolkit is a collection of practical strategies, honest stories, and Biblical resources from one mom to another to help you take control of your temper BEFORE you lose it.
The Temper Toolkit includes:
- 7 teaching videos with downloadable audio (so you can listen anytime)
- Graphic takeaways from each lesson beautifully designed as phone lock screens, computer wallpapers or a print so you can choose which format is best to help you take the lessons with you on the go
- 5 bonus videos including how to talk to your husband and how to talk to your kids about your journey with temper
The Temper Toolkit provides useful tricks for profound life change. Moms today don’t need to feel guilty. Instead, we need the right tools to get through the hard and messy journey of motherhood.
In this workshop, you’ll be reminded:
- That you’re not a bad mom
- That a good God is using your kids to transform you into His image
- That temper is not an incurable disease, but a treatable condition
Affordably priced at $29, this series is worth every penny. I was so encouraged by Lisa-Jo’s wisdom. Plus, if you are one of the first 50 to sign up for the course, you’ll get Lisa-Jo’s best-selling book Surprised By Motherhood, for free. The Temper Toolkit also has a 30-day, money back guarantee, so if you find it wasn’t what you needed, you can get your money back, no questions asked.
Every mom I know should get the Temper Toolkit. It’s full of inspiration and reminders that we are not alone on the challenging, beautiful journey of motherhood.
Your family deserves this. And so do you.
