In a mother’s land of milk and honey, the milk is often split and the honey is usually smeared all over the face of the baby in his high chair. Linda Vujnov has been there and knows exactly what it feels like. As she recounts the continuing adventures of parenting her four children, Maddy, Zack, Ty, and Carson, she offers a quirky, down-to-earth perspective on life for mothers who need to be reminded that God’s grace is always there, even when things don’t work out exactly as you had originally planned. Spilt Milk is a collection of brief, hilarious stories mixed with biblically based applications that will encourage busy mothers in their spiritual journey. Each chapter includes a corresponding Scripture verse intended to support the lesson learned from the experience. Written by a Gen-X mom, these stories remind us that, even in the midst of the questions, the craziness, the wonder of raising kids, and the joy of being a wife, God is right there alongside us to help us cope with life's little messes and mix-ups.

On those days when French fries litter the floor of your minivan, when you think bad words about other drivers, when your smile hides an anxious heart–in those moments when you fall short of all you’d hoped to be–what does God see when He looks at you? In your less-than-lovely moments, God sees a precious daughter in need of His perfect love. In this liberating look at how God adores and transforms imperfect people, Bible teacher Lisa Harper weaves poignant stories of her own personal foibles with a fresh take on selected Psalms to reveal a loving Father who remains your greatest champion even when you don’t feel anywhere close to holy. Join Lisa in discovering what happens when we stop trying to hide our inadequacies and doubts and instead trust God with our anger, frustrations, flaws, and regrets. As you accept God’s loving invitation to exchange your junk for His joy, you’ll find the imperfect pieces of your life shaped into a glorious pattern of divine grace.

Moms: Look to the gospel for your rest, joy, sufficiency, and motivation. For far too long mothers have been beaten down by the law of "do better" and "try harder." The burden of "getting it right" threatens to crush weary souls who desire to serve their families faithfully. Christ in the Chaos brings comfort to conflicted hearts that are starved of grace and longing for the freedom in Christ the Bible promises. In this book, Kimm Crandall emphasizes the importance of the gospel and how Christ's life, death, and resurrection change every aspect of motherhood. From finding our identity in Christ and understanding God's grace to taking off the mask of acceptability and dealing with the comparison crud, this book will free you to serve your family knowing that his love for you does not change based on your performance. Christ in the Chaos is a "must read" for every mother who longs for what is seemingly impossible: peace and freedom in the midst of her chaos.
