Laugh and cry with thirty of your favorite LDS authors in this richly illustrated book as they share unforgettable true stories of mothers and mothering from their own family relationships. These vivid scenes some lovely, some poignant, some hilarious remind us that no other human experience packs more emotion, learning, anxiety, and satisfaction into every moment of everyday than motherhood. Each piece offers a different perspective on the joys and challenges of this role and illustrates mothering as an art of empathy, endurance, and unparalleled promise. In motherhood, a woman has a tiny glimpse of the powerful feelings experienced by our Heavenly Parents, through it she is magnificently prepared for exaltation with the family she diligently serves.
LDS women work hard for many people in many places, striving every day to do and be their best, but how often do they get to simply sit back and LOL? In this collection of wry and witty essays, one modern Mormon mom turns ordinary predicaments into awesome opportunities to lighten up and look at life with a laugh. Whether she's busting through red tape to get medical assistance for her injured son, celebrating the birth of her child by losing her lunch on the bathroom floor, or having an off-beat adventure in the residue of Mormon culture found at the D.I., Kari J. Rich uncovers the hilarity that lurks in everyday situations. See her thwart self-pity with self-deprecation as she rediscovers her testimony in a can of tuna, loses touch with her children by joining the PTA, gets chased down by a hawk on her bike, unknowingly turns into her father on Memorial Day, and battles the family hierarchy at the height of the holiday season. There's more than frivolity on these pages, golden nuggets of wisdom do surface on occasion. But don't worry, they pass quickly. Kari's much more concerned with just finding joy in this experience we call womanhood.
This book had me LOL so much! There are so many stories that I could relate to. If we look at our lives with our children, we can see how many humorous moments there truly are. This book reminds you to laugh along the way as you raise your children.
