Welcome! I'm so glad you've joined me here.
My most recent book, "If I Plug My Ears, God Can't Tell Me What To Do," is actually a six-year project. It was the first book I wrote, the first book rejected by a publisher, and the first book to get a second chance. Don't worry-- the whole story is in the book. If you hear God asking you to try something new with him (including but not limited to writing a book), this is the book for you! We and God will figure out the next step together.
I wrote "There's a Green Plastic Monkey in My Purse" for all those tired mothers out there who don't feel adequate for the job of motherhood. And I wrote it because I have lived it. I thought I knew what I was getting into, and I. WAS. WRONG. After ten years of mothering I can assure you that it is God alone who has worked in my heart to help me be a better mother with His grace, His mercy, and His love. I hope my ridiculous stories and all the words of wisdom from my friends will bring you closer to God as you mother. Don't worry, this book will not add to your burden. It's silly. It's real. It's fun.
I also have a little blog over at jessieclemence.com. That's where you can keep up with me on a regular basis, to see what weirdness is happening in our house (bats at 2:00 in the morning, flaming taco shells, and Barbie issues) and what God is teaching me. Please join me!
