Publisher's Summary

I didn't write this book because mothering little ones is easy for me. I wrote it because it isn't. I know that this is a hard job, because I am right here in the middle of it. I know you need encouragement because I do too.

This is not a tender reminiscence from someone who had children so long ago that she only remembers the sweet parts. At the time of writing this, I have three children in diapers, and I can recognize the sound of hundreds of toothpicks being dumped out in the hall.

This is a small collection of thoughts on mothering young children for when you are motivated, for when you are discouraged, for the times when discipline seems fruitless, and for when you are just plain tired.

The opportunities for growth abound here but you have to be willing. You have to open your heart to the tumble. As you deal with your children, deal with yourself always and first. This is what it looks like, and feels like, to walk as a mother with God.

Short and sweet!

Short, sweet and engaging! Loved it! Made me realize more of the joy and privilege God has given us in motherhood, even though it’s hard!

reorienting blessed book

truth, both encouraging and convicting, written in an applicable actionable way. stories to make you laugh and to make her advice stick in your mind. also, chapters short enough for busy moms to finish and think. keep a journal nearby.
