Hiding from the Kids in My Prayer Closet (David C Cook, July 2017)
Finding grace and laughter when motherhood gets real
Soon after Jessica Kastner became a mother, she wondered if she was the only mom who found pretend play more boring than watching playdough harden and who dreaded yet another friend’s Instagram post of homemade deliciousness.
In Hiding from My Kids in the Prayer Closet, Kastner shares her experience as an “unmom”—a mom who loves her kids more than she loves the daily experience of mothering. She helps readers laugh at the ridiculous, delight in the unpredictable, and enjoy being the mothers God made them to be.

My Thoughts:
Instantly I GRAVATED towards this book! Jessica hadn't always dreamed of babies and infants, which is something I can totally relate too! I always read books where women have dreamed it their entire life and I haven't always had that dream. It was refreshing to read that I am not alone, that other women have felt the same way as I have.  I am a "un-per" mom as she would say. Having no children, I found this book to be humorous, truthful and to to be very deep. I liked how the book was divided into 7 sections. They each have a purpose and place. I think you will find a great laugh out of this book and also stories you can relate too. I give this book 4.5/ 5 stars. Thank you to the publisher for providing a complimentary copy for review.
