Here’s a bit of advice, mom to mom:
Throw down the minivan keys, brush the cereal off the table, kick the toys into a corner, sit down with a cup of coffee (or glass of wine), and read Death by Minivan.
Author Heather Anderson Renshaw, mother of five, is a lot like you. She knows all about the wild, crazy, and often hilarious experience of motherhood. And she feels sometimes like she’s barely keeping up — and maybe even failing at the whole “mom thing.” Thankfully, as she shares in these pages, motherhood isn’t a trip that’s meant to be taken alone. God’s got this, and the more we let him lead, the more we find the fruits of his Holy Spirit taking root in our hearts and in our families.
So buckle up, because you’re on the road to a more joyful, more peaceful, more faithful motherhood. Along the way, Heather offers tips for getting past the inevitable roadblocks, the “GPS” for finding your way (it’s Scripture), and roadside assistance courtesy of the saints.
With humor, honesty, and spirit, Heather Renshaw employs personal insights and timeless truths to help us harvest the fruits of the Holy Spirit, our companion and GPS along our path to God. Insightful and fun for individuals and even better for group study, this book should be required “drivers training” for busy moms navigating family life.— Lisa M.
