Getting Past Perfect: Finding Joy & Grace in the Messiness of Motherhood strives to help moms from all walks of life to overcome Pinterest-inspired perfectionism by replacing their deepest fears and anxieties with a steady trust in God and the freedom to love and mother their children authentically. I hope you will join me in this quest to replace perfectionism with authenticity.
What others are saying about Getting Past Perfect:
“From the moment I cracked open this book, I fell in love with it. Kate Wicker captures the beautiful, painful reality of motherhood perfectly as she guides those fortunate enough to read her words on a journey to discover the peace that surpasses all understanding. This book is a must-read for all mothers and those who love them.”

“For every mom who struggles and wonders if she’s the only one, Kate Wicker is a sorely-needed voice of humor, realism, wisdom, and encouragement. Learn to let go, get past perfect, and let this gem of a book soothe your weary soul!”

Kate does an outstanding job of empathizing with the daily rigors of motherhood while celebrating the triumphs and encouraging spiritual growth. A must-read for all new, sort of new, and seasoned moms!”

Weightless: Making Peace with Your Body (my first book) seeks to free women from being slaves to food, scales, unrealistic beauty standards, and unhealthy body image. Countless women today are weighted down by the thought that they are not thin enough, pretty enough, young enough, or good enough. While bookstore shelves are well stocked with advice on how to overcome body image problems, very few take a faith-based, much less Catholic, approach to self-healing. Weightless: Making Peace With Your Body speaks not only to those who may have faced an eating disorder, but also to anyone who wants to live an abundant life, unencumbered by society’s obsession with thinness, physical beauty, youth, or food.
