Stepping On Cheerios by Betsy Singleton Snyder-Book Review

About the book (provided by the publisher Abingdon Press )

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.

And I thought

Stepping On Cheerios is a great read for all moms. 

Whether your a new mom or been doin' the mom thing for a while  you'll get great inspiration and focus within these pages.  
I think Stepping On Cheerios is even a great read for grandmothers.  I am one.  I was able to gain a much better understanding of my daughter and DIL and the struggles they have living in todays culture. 
Things are so different from when I was a young mom. 
The struggles and challenges they face today are much more difficult.  
To have the opportunity to read a book with insight, humor, and encouragement that relates to them is a blessing.
If your a young mom check out this book.  
If your a grandmother buy the book for you daughter or DIL.

I visited Betsy's blog and website.  It is delightful!  If you haven't decided yet to buy the book go over and check out the blog and website. Click here.

I received a complimentary copy from Litfuse.
