I am at a weird stage of my life. For the first time, I am a stay at home mom. I have worked throughout my life. First 2-3 jobs as a single mom, going to school to better myself, and then just full time. Now, with two little guys who are very active - my occupation is "home maker" I was excited to read this book to look for some things that God wanted to tell me about being a parent.
About the Book:
Stepping on Cheerios: Finding God in the Chaos and Clutter of Life (Abingdon Press, April 2017)
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.

First and foremost - as I stated above, this is a new stage of life for me. I have 4 kids. (19, 16, 6 and 4) The younger two are home with me. The 16 year old is in Ohio visiting her dad for the summer. So, life has been hectic when it's 2 vs. 1.
This book felt like it was written just for me. Ms. Snyder took all the stuff that I had been feeling - and tells her story on how she had to learn to put God at the center of it all. This book is definitely geared towards moms and has lots of great stories and tidbits on her life as a mom ad how she found her Strength through HIM.
I love reading about other mom stories and knowing that I am not the first to go through this, and I won't be the last.
I loved being encouraged.
