Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches


Product Details

by Rachel Jankovic

From the Author:

    “I didn’t write this book because mothering little ones is easy for me. I wrote it because it isn’t. I know that this is a hard job, because I am right here in the middle of it. I know you need encouragement because I do too.
    This is not a tender reminiscence from someone who had children so long ago that she only remembers the sweet parts. At the time of writing this, I have three children in diapers, and I can recognize the sound of hundreds of toothpicks being dumped out in the hall.
    This is a small collection of thoughts on mothering young children for when you are motivated, for when you are discouraged, for the times when discipline seems fruitless, and for when you are just plain old tired…”


Tedd Tripp, pastor and author of Shepherding a Child’s Heart, says:

    “Loving the Little Years is a delightful book. That may seem a strange comment on a book that deals with life with such candor. It’s all here: the fights in the back of the car, the dirty diapers, sinks full of dishes, runny noses, exhaustion–all the stuff of having five young children. It is a fresh and honest book, because it faces the problem of sin (both in kids and in parents). It is filled with profound insights into living wisely as a Christian parent. It has all the things I look for in a parenting book the focus is nurture, not just control; the motivation and empowerment is grace and not efforts. This book will help any mom (or dad for that matter) with loving the little years.”

Doreen: “I don’t know how much this book costs, but I’m sure it’s worth every penny. It was excellent. Super short (2 or 3 page) chapters on a multitude of relevant topics discussed in a fresh, spiritual, and practical way. I will have to reread this book every year or two, I’m sure!”
