Mama’s Got A Fake I.D. by Caryn Dahlstrand Rivedeneira

Mama’s Got A Fake I.D. by Caryn Dahlstrand Rivedeneira is a lighthearted yet serious look at women, their unique abilities and God-given talents and what happens to them once we become mothers.

"In Mama’s Got a Fake I.D., Rivedeneira helps moms reclaim their full identity as creative beings, gifted professionals and volunteers, loving friends, children of God—and mothers. This inspiring and practical guide shows women how to break free from false guilt, learn a new language to express who they really are, and follow God’s lead in sharing their true self with others. After all, motherhood doesn’t have to mean losing one’s identity. Instead, being a mom makes it possible for a woman to discover a more complete identity as the person God made her to be. "
