Life's Too Short To Miss The Big Picture: A Book Review

About The Book:


A mother's life is filled with endless errands and cluttered calendars. LIFE'S TOO SHORT--FOR MOMS offers that breath of fresh air, that moment of humor to keep the day moving and focused on God.

A mom's to-do list is a constant work-in-progress. Keeping up with family, job responsibilities, and after school activities leaves little time for anything else. Motherhood is no simple task. Moms strive to give their children moral character, a strong sense of self-worth and self-discipline, and an unshakable faith in the Lord. In the day-to-day work of a busy mother, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture.

Melanie offers short, inspirational, quick-read stories about her life and motherhood that reveal truths about the big picture. She invites readers to ''think of it as lunch with your girlfriends.'' Through the laughter and tears of these touching stories, readers will discover that life is not about the mundane chores of life, but is instead a life-long calling of God.



About The Author:


Melanie Simpson graduated from Abilene Christian University with a Bachelor of Music degree. She received the Teacher of the Year award from Katy ISD as an elementary music teacher. Melanie has worn many professional hats: children's minister, worship leader, event coordinator, choir director, and currently, private teacher of piano and voice through her business, Melanie's Melody. She shares her adventures in her proudest role, motherhood, on her popular online blog: a-mothers-journey.blogspot.com. Melanie lives in Katy, Texas with her husband of fourteen years, Michael, and their two children, Julia and Zeke.


My Review:


A beautiful book that would be the perfect gift idea for mother's of all ages and stages. The book is similar in style to the Chicken Soup series, with short stories and life experiences. You will laugh, cry and be encouraged in your journey as a mom. From the very first pages you will not want to put this book down. Whether you are a mom or not, you will find inspiration as you read this book!


I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up.
