“Hiding from the Kids in My Prayer Closet, Jessica Kastner’s book about finding grace in motherhood imperfection, gives readers permission to live in the moment. The book embodies the famous quote ‘Comparison is the thief of joy.’ Instead of focusing on failure, Kastner wants moms to transfer that energy into finding happiness in their own messy, imperfect ways. Even though she might lose track of the school calendar or make dinner from a box, she can still enjoy jumping on the trampoline with her boys or having worship dance parties. Kastner’s tales of imperfect, faith-based motherhood will resonate with moms who feel they don’t always succeed at ‘mothering’ but love the path God has put them on anyway.”

After reading the first chapter of her book though , I wondered if I’d made a mistake. I like other people’s kids and I guess I do like a lot of “mom” things. I kept reading anyway and found myself literally laughing out loud in many places.
However, the chapter about neglecting pets bothered me. The chapter about lying to avoid play dates, comparing other people’s children to demons, and suggesting a tantruming child is emotionally unstable and on the path to being a serial killer was too much; no matter how light hearted it was intended to be.
I felt this was more “Scary Mommy” than a book to help nurture the fruits of my spirit.
As someone who is more of the world than I should be, I felt like this book tried to pull me in deeper. I didn’t even finish the last few chapters because of it.
