And let's listen to Debora, before I give you my review!



Review:


As you saw in the sampler above, the book is broken down into 4 sections, covering important parts of motherhood- "why Didn't Anyone Warn Me", "So Where's the Ding-Dang Motherhood Manual", "Coloring My World With the Crayons god Gave Me", and "Mothering is a Lifetime Gig", which echo the different steps we ALL go through in motherhood! From there there are multiple chapters in each section. Each chpater has it's on topic and begins with a bible quote, and a 'goal' for the chapter. Then Debora gives you a story, or thoughts on the subject. That is followed up by a quote from different sources. The last part of the chapter is "Navigating the Hood', and asks readers different questions about the topics at hand, and to think how the topic applies in their lives. Then Debora tried to give a creative way to apply them!

I found myself laughing most of the way through the book! Debora really has a knack for finding stories that everyone can relate to, and showing us how to find the humor in events that seem to rock our world, and make us think we can't mother right, and to show us that not are we fdoing a fine job, but everyone else is struggling along with us. There is NO perfect parent or perfect child. We all have the flaws that God gave us, but with Debora's help we can realize that those 'flaws' may just be our biggest strengths! This is a book for moms already in the trenches, and those about be, both will find themselves going back to the book, over and over, for it's nuggets of wisdoms and support! 

The blog tour for this book will be September 24 – October 12
