Don't Make Me Come Up There"-- makes me cheer! And it makes me get down on my knees and thank Jesus for this vocation of mothering. Because this book's take on motherhood is with a fresh honesty, a deep humility, and always has Christ firmly at the center of it.

Each chapter can be read easily in one sitting (or standing at the stove, stirring soup :) by a mama of many. I've been picking it up right in the middle of it all -- and it's guaranteed to bring a smile of recognition ("I'm not alone!")... (or flat out laugh.) And it's guaranteed to encourage and turn a chaotic day to Him who really matters.

This book is making me laugh and it's making me kneel and it's making me love.
I can think of no higher compliment of a book for a mama down in the trenches --- or at the bottom of the stairs :)

No one ever said Motherhood was going to be easy. In fact no one or nothing can really prepare you for Motherhood. Everyday as a parent is filled with unexpected tests some easy others not so easy. I know if I didn't have GOD to lean on I would be lost.

Don't Make Me... offers readers an insight look to what parents go through on a daily basis. Even though we all have our own stories - you will be able to relate to the stories that author tells.

Quick read!!

After 2 pre-teens and a toddler, I thought I knew it all (well, almost) when it came to parenting so I wasn't really looking for yet another parenting tool when I chanced upon this book. And I'm so glad I did.

The books reminds us how each child is a person of his/her own. We can only do so much but guide them as best we can towards the right direction. It stresses how much responsibility motherhood requires. And I'm not just speaking of physical aspect of child rearing but the active spiritual molding of a child. And yes it has entirely Christian overtones and that's what I love most of all about it. In an amoral, almost god-less world we have now it's a good thing to be reminded that mothering isn't just about us moms but having God to turn to for direction and having Him to turn to when things don't turn out the way we planned.

Oh, and her stories and reflections manage to hit bull's-eye about how life as a mother is sometimes hectic, funny, tiring, dramatic, thrilling, exhausting, restless but almost always rewarding. We learn more from our children than the other way around.

I have read the book and I'm re-reading it now as a devotional. I have no plans of deleting or archiving it from my Kindle.

A must-read for moms!

I really enjoyed reading this book about the trials and tribulations of being a Mom. She has a funny way of sharing her stories and they had me smiling through out this book. Why 4 stars instead of 5? - I didn't realize that there would be so many references to her Christian based faith and prayers at the end of each chapter but I would just move on to the next page whenever I'd get to the prayers part. I'd still highly recommend this book to others as I enjoyed reading it very much.

I really enjoyed and was encouraged by this book. The entries were easy to read without requiring a time commitment that I cannot give with 4 children 10 and under occupying my days and half the nights. I passed along my hard copy to another busy mom, but now I wish I hadn't.

This was my unwind time at the end of a long day with the kids. It was actually a Kindle freebie at the time I got it, but I'd pay money for it and I'd highly recommend it to my friends and will likely buy it as gifts as well. Hilarious, poignant, honest, and recharging (love the little mini-prayers at the end of each chapter). Would read anything this author comes out with again!

I absolutely loved this book! I started out trying to read it as a devotional but I couldn't put it down after just one chapter. I found the scripture pieces and the prayers at the end of each chapter useful and relevant. I love the blog, we are THAT family and didn't even realize that the author of the book was the author of the blog until after I started reading. No wonder I loved the book! I recommend it to all moms!
