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.

My Thoughts:
I was really interested in this book and was excited to review it, but I had a difficult time reading this book. It did not grab me like I thought it would. The author tends to be wordy in her writing style, which I found to be difficult to follow. I think she could have been more concise and that would have been easier for me. The writing flow felt disorganized and I had a difficult time staying focused. I think the author really wanted to drive home the point that Mothers need to make time for God before their children, but I just didn't think it was a book that I would recommend for mothers. It has some stories that are funny and interesting for mothers, but overall, I give this book a 3.5/ 5 stars. I received this book from the publisher and a favorable review was not required.
