A mother's life is filled with endless errands and cluttered calendars. Life's Too Short for Moms offers that breath of fresh air, that moment of humor to keep the day moving and focused on God.
A mom's to-do list is a constant work-in-progress. Keeping up with family, job responsibilities, and after school activities leaves little time for anything else. Motherhood is no simple task. Moms strive to give their children moral character, a strong sense of self-worth and self-discipline, and an unshakable faith in the Lord. In the day-to-day work of a busy mother, it is easy to lose sight of the big picture.
Melanie offers short, inspirational, quick-read stories about her life and motherhood that reveal truths about the big picture. She invites readers to "think of it as lunch with your girlfriends." Through the laughter and tears of these touching stories, readers will discover that life is not about the mundane chores of life, but is instead a life-long calling of God.
