Stepping on Cheerios: Finding God in the Chaos and Clutter of Life(Abingdon Press, April 2017)
Family life is beautiful and motherhood is a privilege, but it ain’t no picnic!
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 opinion: This book was certainly different than your run of the mill Mother book as the author comes from a completely different background being an older Mom who married an even older man who has pretty much done everything, on top of that the author had triplets which made her path to Motherhood all the more unique.
This book was an easy and refreshing read, sometimes the writing and humor fell a bit flat but overall it was a very down to earth approach to the chaos that comes with being a Mother summed up pretty darn well!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
