Stepping on Cheerios
Being a mother isn't easy. Sometimes it's hard to experience a personal connection with God and community when you are caught up in the chaos of just -doing family-.
Independent and self-sufficient, author Betsy Singleton Snyder lived a full and busy life as a pastor, missionary, and wife to a husband who served in the U.S. House of Representatives. She had her first child at age 44, then at 47, she found out she was carrying triplets. Suddenly finding herself overwhelmed is an understatement.
Stepping on Cheerios is a collection of funny, warm, and charming tales from the frontlines of parenthood, written for women who are juggling to accomplish everyday feats of work, motherhood, marriage, church, and more. It's a comical story of one woman's realization that her crazy life is a gift and how she found the grace in it.
My thoughts: This book is an excellent resource for those feeling like they are juggling a lot with being a wife, mother, and the plethora of other roles that life sends our ways. I thought that this book was interesting, since Betsy invites the reader to see how motherhood has changed her, and yet helped to deepen or broaden her ministry. I thought that it was interesting to read about life with triplets.;)
If you feel like you are having a hard time seeing the gifts in the craziness, then this is an excellent book to pick up!
I received this book from Litfuse in exchange for my honest review.
