"Fit To Burst" Book Review

A couple of years ago I reviewed a book called "Loving the Little Years" by Rachel Jankovic.  This book really spoke to me because I am in that season of life: the "little years."  I have three kids younger than five years old.  My days are filled with spilled juice, crumbled cookies, puzzle pieces scattered all over the floor, diaper changes, and runny nose.  Its exhausting and amazing all at once and Rachel seems to really "get that."  So I was eager to review another book by her.  Thant's when I found "Fit to Burst: Abundance, Mayhem, and the Joys of Motherhood."

Once again, Rachel Jankovic has knocked it out of the park.  She's both encouraging and convicting as she leads you through the trials and adventures of motherhood.  She gives great biblical insight on how to handle stress, frustration and that feeling of not being appreciated that all moms struggle with.   I really appreciate Rachel's writing.  And I love that her books are fairly short and to the point.  After all, I have 3 kids under 5 years old.  Who has time to read 500 pages!?!  `If you want an encouraging, convicting, helpful book on issues of motherhood, look no further!  "Fit to Burst" is definitely a great read!

And to give you a little taste, here's one of my favorite little excerpts from the book:
"Discontentment will never change the world.  If you want your work to have a lasting impact on the world, define yourself with gratitude.  Be thankful over the laundry.  Be thankful when you find yourself nursing a baby in a carload of hungry children.  Be full of gratitude, not only for the cute photo opportunities that will come your way as a mother, but over the accidents and snotty noses and dirty floors.  Give thanks for the sticky juice rings on the counter.  Give thanks for the milk spill, for the stomach virus, for the pants that are too tight after that last baby."
You can purchase "Fit To Burst" on Amazon.com

I received a copy of this book, free of charge, from Canon Press, in exchange for my honest review.
