Hiding From My Kids in the Prayer Closet {Book Review}

Do you ever feel like you’re alone in this motherhood mess?  If so, you’ll want to pick up a copy of Hiding from my Kids in the Prayer Closet.

Soon after author Jessica Kastner became a mother, she wondered if she was the only mom who found pretend play more boring than watching playdough harden and who dreaded yet another friend’s Instagram post of homemade deliciousness.

In Hiding from My Kids in the Prayer Closet, Kastner shares her experience as an “unmom”—a mom who loves her kids more than she loves the daily experience of mothering. She helps readers laugh at the ridiculous, delight in the unpredictable, and enjoy being the mothers God made them to be.

My take: This book had me in stitches from the introduction. The author’s writing style is smooth, quirky, and a whole lot of fun. I feel like she completely understands the state of my life right now and has excellent advice on how to keep things centered on Christ in the midst of the chaos. This is a book that will stay on my shelf and would make an excellent gift for new moms.
