With wit and candor, popular Christian Parenting Today columnist Lisa Espinoza Johnson shows how your ordinary moments of mothering little ones can teach extraordinary life lessons. Each of the book’s bite-size chapters contains hilarious personal stories and observations about the everyday experiences of motherhood—breastfeeding, teething, potty training, birthday parties, family pets, household chores—that culminate in unexpected insights. Amidst the dailiness of mothering, Johnson finds deep and profound meaning. Her words will guide and sustain you while you are fulfilling the most significant role of your life.
