Stepping On Cheerios: Finding God in the Chaos and Clutter of Life: A Book Review
About The Book:
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.
About The Author:
Betsy Singleton Snyder, author of "Stepping on Cheerios," is a pastor, a former missionary to the arts community, writer, and blogger. She and her husband, Dr. Vic Snyder who formerly served in the U.S. House of Representatives for 14 years, live in Arkansas with their four sons, Penn (10), and triplets Wyatt, Sullivan, and Aubrey (8).
Motherhood is not for the faint-hearted. It is a tough journey with lots of ups and likely (for most of us) even more downs. However, if we are followers of Jesus Christ, we know we do not walk this journey alone. He is with us each step of the way.
This collection of real-life experiences as a mom for four was a delight to read. I laughed, cried and found myself nodding in agreement with a smile on my face many times as I read it. There is encouragement in the chaos of being a parent, even if we don't always see it at the moment. I am very glad to have read it when I did. Life has been pretty crazy recently and so this was a great reminder that I am not alone in this chaos of motherhood and that sometimes we just need to laugh. It was a raw, honest and vulnerable look at being a mom and I loved it.
I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
