In no job other than motherhood does God provide you your own anthropologist: someone with big observations in a little body who sees the simple and important underneath the complicated and difficult. Somehow, and without knowing it, children understand the nature and essence of humankind.
As we, mothers, look around at our friends, our co-workers, the neighbors, and even complete strangers, we often find ourselves comparing our parenting skills – or lack thereof on some days. In her book Mommy Needs a Raise (Because Quitting’s Not an Option), Sarah Parshall Perry combines Biblical values and sound advice with her personal experiences of the unbelievable aspects of parenting. Sarah has written an easy-to-read book that is divided into chunks that can fit into even the busiest mom’s life. Her sense of humor and honesty will leave you laughing, crying and feeling relief as you recognize that
you are not alone in the parenting adventures. In this book, you will discover how Sarah transitioned from being a lawyer to tackling the world of being a stay-at-home-mom. Even though she chose specific routes in raising her three children, she warmly encourages women to embrace the choices their family makes as she acknowledges that every family is unique. Whether you are a mom-to-be, a first-time mom, or a seasoned mother, Mommy Needs a Raise (Because Quitting’s Not an Option) is sure to be a book that serves up a plate of encouragement with a side of humor as Sarah helps unite mothers from all walks of life as we celebrate the joys (and bumps) of motherhood.
