My Review:
Being a mom is THE toughest job I have ever had and I have done some heavy lifting, but it is the most rewarding job also.  Jennifer Grant's book MOMumental is a step into one mothers journey through motherhood, traveling on that ever rocky road of parenting 4 children.  I love the easy natural style that the author has.  As a child of divorced parents also, I could identify with her and how those things in our lives are what drives us to be a good parent.  From  knowing when to pick your battles to her 5 multiple duty products that all busy moms should have, Jennifer Grant has created a well read book that is sure help in your own journey of raising a child, mess and all!

MOMumental is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble and you can check out some awesome extras HERE.  You can snag a free download of the books first chapter as well as an author audio interview.

  1. What is a good parent? We moms often set impossible standards for ourselves, and feel that we can never be “a good mom.” Or at least a good enough mom. Momumental was so encouraging to me as a mom. Jennifer Grant offers solid advice, not just on parenting but on how to be intentional about building a family culture. She writes honestly about her own mistakes, her own perfectionism, and how her own family of origin impacted her. I’m recommending this book who anyone who is raising children—which is a messy but beautiful art.


I love to hear your comments!
