Hiding From the Kids In My Prayer Closet
Finding Grace and Laughter When Motherhood Gets Real
Thoughts On Hiding From the Kids in My Prayer Closet
Jessica Kastner writes with frank humor often missing from Christian works.
Although, she maintains a Christian perspective and 100% believes grace is why she is still standing, she doesn’t gloss over the frank humility and humor present in everyday parenthood.
Some may find her blunt and matter of fact descriptions of the daily Mommy struggle to be a turn off, but I found it refreshing and delightfully laugh out loud funny.
With comedic glimpses at what it’s like to share 1600 square feet with three small children in a New England winter and insight into the unique challenges of camping with two little boys still in diapers, Kastner takes us on a personal journey that can leave you laughing, crying, and grateful for the commiseration.
She ends with hope and guidance for Mom’s struggling with balancing the mess with the honor of raising children.
A great and hilarious find for Mom’s everywhere, but especially wonderful for single Moms and those who need to laugh a bit more and know they aren’t alone.
A Few Favorite Outtakes
“I just pooped with a child on my lap. This family is complete.”
“I would stand before a congressional jury and attest that my husband would leave our kids lying in a pool of their own waste before doing anything while sick.”
“Yes! Come over. We’ve reached an all-time low over here; you’ll be impressed. Are you passing Dunkin’ Doughnuts on the way?”
“I think one of the coolest parts of parenting is finding out who our kids are. What makes them special and great?”
“The hope of my heart is that even one woman who’s pregnant and questing whether to keep her baby would stumble upon this book. If there’s any message worth sharing, aside from the life-giving salvation Christ offers, it’s that motherhood is the single greatest blessing on earth.”
