MOMumental ~ a review & giveaway

bookLG_momumental There are lots of great parenting books out there filled with great advice to raising happy, healthy children. Jennifer Grant’s new book MOMumental: Adventures in the Messy Art of Raising a Family gives you the reader permission to be the everyday mom who loves her children in a  crazy, messy, and somewhat loud home. I have got all three of those so let me tell you a little more about the book MOMumental, in which “family life is an adventure in becoming real...”

Jennifer Grant’s gilrhood dream of being the perfect mom withered quickly once she got a real taste of the messy, creative, sometimes hilarious, and often taxing process of raising a family. With MOMumental, she presents a warm, compassionate book filled with uncommon and amusing insights about being an intentional parent—and about realizing that family matter, no matter what yours is like.

This is a great book that will leave you encouraged and ready to take on the joys of parenting whether you have an infant or teen. It is written with a wonderful conversational tone and it leaves you with the feeling that you just had a great conversation with a group of friends. In addition to the sometimes hilarious stories included in the book Jennifer Grant offers  appendixes with great tips for mothers, including a list of 5 things every Mom should have ( love this list!), signs of mommy burnout, and also ways to regain balance through a prayer for Mothers. Want to win a copy of this book? Just leave me a comment and I will pick a winner on July 13th.

No doubt about it: children are a gift from the Lord.
