Hiding from the kids in my prayer closet by Jessica Kastner


Hiding from the Kids in My Prayer Closet (David C Cook, July 2017)
Finding grace and laughter when motherhood gets real
Soon after Jessica Kastner became a mother, she wondered if she was the only mom who found pretend play more boring than watching playdough harden and who dreaded yet another friend’s Instagram post of homemade deliciousness.
In Hiding from My Kids in the Prayer Closet, Kastner shares her experience as an “unmom”—a mom who loves her kids more than she loves the daily experience of mothering. She helps readers laugh at the ridiculous, delight in the unpredictable, and enjoy being the mothers God made them to be.

My opinion: For any Mom who feels overwhelmed by all of the responsibilities that come with being Mom this book is encouraging and laugh out loud funny at times. I love how candid and open the author is, it makes me feel like I am not alone in my crazy moments.  Being a Mom is definitely the hardest job one can ever have and yet this book helps makes you feel like you are not alone and that one can find grace and laughter in the disasters that can happen.
Written in a warm, witty manner this book is a great read.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
