Publisher's Summary

Fit to Burst is a book of parenting "field notes" written by a mom in the thick of it all. It is chock-full of humorous examples and fresh advice covering issues familiar to moms, such as guilt cycles, temptations to be ungrateful or bitter, enjoying your kids, and learning how to honor Jesus by giving even in the mundane stuff. But this book also addresses less familiar topics, including the impact moms have on the relationships between dads and kids, the importance of knowing when to laugh at kid-sized sin, and more.

A thoughtful follow-up to Loving the Little Years, Rachel's first book, Fit to Burst will help us to be moms who parent with the story in mind rather than the snapshot, who know how to give much and to require much from their children in the everyday mayhem, and who understand the importance of biscuits.

A note from Rachel: "I don't pull punches or hold back in this book, because I am writing to myself as much as to you. If something in this book strikes a little close to home for you, know that it struck in my home first. I am not writing about other people's problems, although I know many of them are common. I write about what I know, and what I know is the challenges, the joys, and the work involved in raising little people."

Great book

Very real stance on motherhood for the glory of God and so very in tune with the reality of struggles and thoughts moms (actually) have and eloquently discusses the thoughts moms should cling to from scripture during their life long pursuit of motherhood. She covers many topics-this book is worth listening to.

A Healthy Kick in the Pants

I do not like parenting books. Many times they are full of anecdotal evidence that only applies to a particular family or life style. My life is not cookie cutter, I don’t need a parenting book that adds to my to do list. I need an attitude and mental shift when it comes to mothering. I need to be reminded of the Truth in the midst of the good works God has given me. Rachel does that in this book. It feels like a kind coach reminding me that He has prepared me for this and made me for this work and if I trust His Word and follow it, we will get through it together.
