Monday’s Mention

Sand in My Sandwich: And Other Motherhood Messes I’m Learning to Love by Sarah Parshall Perry is the true raw, unadulterated view of the life of a mother of three children, two with special needs.

Sarah Perry is a previous neat freak, attorney and now mother of three. She chronicles her “escapades” and those of her children, in a very real and laugh out loud way. Even if you don’t have special needs children, all mothers can relate to Sarah’s life.

Sarah’s reality, even without her children, is a challenge. She struggles with depression and was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder, but her sense of humor helps to see her through. In addition, her abiding faith shores her up in her darkest days. She says, “The hardest stuff is the quickest way to God.”

As you read Sand in My Sandwich, you are given glimpses into Sarah’s life, from her days a single woman to her current days as a wife and mother.

Sand in My Sandwich isn’t a how-to manual but a how-I-did-it chronicle. Sarah is an encouragement to every mom, helping us realize that some things we may have thought were unique to us, in our worst moments, are actually experienced by all moms.

Once you start reading, you are not going to want to put Sand in My Sandwich: And Other Motherhood Messes I’m Learning to Love down.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
