Fit to Burst:
Abundance, Mayhem, and the Joys of Motherhood

I don't pull punches or hold back in this book, because I am writing to myself as much as to you. If something in this book strikes a little close to home for you, know that it struck in my home first. I am not writing about other people's problems, although I know many of them are common. I write about what I know, and what I know is the challenges, the joys, and the work involved in raising little people.

In this follow-up to Loving the Little Years, Rachel Jankovic pushes her parenting "field notes" out onto the skinny branches of motherhood. Fit to Burst is chock-full of humorous examples and fresh advice covering issues familiar to every mom such as guilt cycles, temptations to be ungrateful or bitter, and learning how to honor Jesus in the mundane things. But this book also addresses less familiar topics, including the impact that moms have on the relationships between dads and kids, the importance of knowing when to laugh at kid-sized sin, and more.

Fit to Burst
will help us be moms who parent with the story in mind rather than the snapshot, who know how to both give and require much from their children in the everyday mayhem, and who understand the importance of biscuits.

Rachel Jankovic is a wife, homemaker, and mother. She received her bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts & Culture from New Saint Andrews College, but mostly reads cookbooks now to avoid story grip (being highly susceptible). In 2003, she married her husband Luke, and they have six children who know how to party. Their little posse includes Evangeline (8), Daphne (6), Chloe (5), Titus (5), Blaire (2), and Shadrach (3 months). Rachel loves color, fabric, yarn to knit with, kids to laugh at, and laundry (not so much).

"Relief from the Mundane"

Comments: A few years ago I got my hands on Rachel's first book, Loving the Little Years, and I absolutely loved it. When I saw this new release I couldn't wait to jump right in. The Subtitle of this book is: Abundance, Mayhem, and the Joys of Motherhood. That about sums up parenting in my house. While I have an almost 20 year old son and a senior in high school that I've managed pretty well, I still have a couple of tinies and any parent will tell you that any little bit of help can't hurt. I love Rachel... More details
