Hiding From The Kids In My Prayer Closet: A Blog Review

About The Book:

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 Review:

Seriously one of the funniest books on motherhood I have read in a long time. I loved that the author was honest and raw about being a mom. Its not always Pinterest perfect and charming. It's hard, messy work with often times not a lot of thanks from anyone. But she reminds us that grace comes from the tough and was a great reminder to slow down even in the midst of chaos and see God in our lives. A great encouraging read for all ages and stages of motherhood! 

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