This is my story. I don't know how many times I've believed the lie "I'm a failure, I'm not good enough". I can't believe a movie affirmed ME and told MY story. My wild and crazy life with three toddlers. My house that is ALWAYS a disaster area. How I'm typically a hot mess and never look put together.
I was choking on my popcorn I was laughing so hard. This movie is RAW and REAL. I was a little creeped out feeling like they must have had secret cameras placed in my home somehow because no other house is as crazy as mine, right? Wrong. We all are surrounded by this beautiful, crazy chaos each and every day. "Masterpieces" in finger-paints on the walls, salmonella literally dripping from the countertops and tiny toddlers using the toilet as their personal bathing pool.
It's about resisting to believe that lie that you're not good enough. It's about knowing what an important job motherhood is. It's ok to be a mess, a beautiful mess. When you are deeply rooted in Christ, you are a new creation. You no longer carry the titles of failure and not-enough.
Gather your girlfriends, and get to this film. You will laugh, cry and be SO encouraged!
At the end of the film, Allison gives this message:
"I am a mess. But I'm a beautiful mess. I'm His masterpiece and that's enough"
I couldn't have said it better myself.
