Publisher's Summary

From the author of the best-selling Christy Miller and SisterChicks series comes a new book of community, friendship, and tackling the hard things of life with God and loved ones around a table.

Five young moms, including beloved Gunn character Christy Miller, gather to share meals and soon become unlikely best friends. The regular gatherings provide opportunities for the women to reveal their stories, and those life stories endear them to each other. They experience their lives naturally meshing as they raise their children together in community. In Becoming Us the group find ways to challenge, encourage, and help each other become the nurturing mothers they wished they'd had when they were growing up. They unite to be remembered for what they do as moms and not for what was done to them. 

Becoming Us is a sweet and beautiful tale of letting go and letting God. The characters made me, a young mom myself, feel surrounded by a group of treasured friends, as they welcomed me into the haven they created.” (Lindsay Harrel, author of The Secrets of Paper and Ink)

Everything this Christie Miller Series teen now adult dreamed up

Growing up, I read the Christie Miller Series along with Sierra’s series too. I some how missed the other character’s stories. But, as an adult, it was a fun refreshing read that brought all the nostalgic feels.

Robin Jones Gunn delivers again

I loved this book.
I listened to it slowly because of time constraints on my life lately, but I loved the story and all of the lessons it contained.
The narrator did a good job, though I didn't like it at first ... sometimes it is hard to transition to someone else voice.
