Long Days of Small Things Motherhood as A Spiritual Discipline by Ann Voskamp. Dirty laundry, crayon-smeared bills, and smashed crackers, there’s your Bible buried under a pile of diapers. Bleary-eyed from lack of sleep, without a moment of peace and quiet, you wonder if the spiritual life you crave is even possible. But God sees you. He designed this parenting journey, after all. He understands the chaos of motherhood. And he joins you in everything whether you’re scrubbing the floor, nursing a fussy newborn, or driving to soccer practice. Catherine McNiel invites you to connect with God right here, in the sacred mundane of every mothering moment.
I really found this book to be very informative and I learned a lot about how to motherhood and daily struggles to get by in a busy household. You always need to remind the little things and have time for you even if it is three minutes or five minutes.
