Fit to Burst: Abundance, Mayhem, and the Joys of Motherhood

fit to burst by Rachel Jankovic, author of Loving the Little Years, daughter of Douglas and Nancy Wilson   This is a great read! As someone who is currently in the trenches herself, Rachel offers perspective and encouragement in parenting in a fresh, real way. These short bite-size chapters on a dozen or more topics continue where her first book left off, as her own children have grown older too. It’s a book for dads too, as Tony Reinke (from Desiring God, author of Lit!) admits: “It was one of my favourite reads of the year (if a guy can say that about a book written by a woman for women).” And some chapters are really for everyone. If you are dealing with stress, Rachel’s fresh look at this age-old problem is very encouraging in the chapter called “Wound Up.” And for those floundering in discouragement (don’t we all?), her chapter on “The Long-Term View” as well as “Wound Up” is a blessing. Enjoy! Laugh, reflect, and be refreshed.   120 pages, soft-cover Parenting Nonfiction Available from Christian bookstores and Amazon Recommended Reviewer: Doreen
