Soon after Jessica Kastner became a mother, she wondered if she was the only mom who found pretend play more boring than watching playdough harden and who dreaded yet another friend’s Instagram post of homemade deliciousness.

In Hiding from My Kids in the Prayer Closet, Kastner shares her experience as an “unmom”—a mom who loves her kids more than she loves the daily experience of mothering. She helps readers laugh at the ridiculous, delight in the unpredictable, and enjoy being the mothers God made them to be.

My Thoughts:

Parenting isn’t easy- it’s the plain simple truth. However, I often feel alone in my journey to being the best mom I can be. Often times I feel like I’ve failed and there’s no way back. This book made me realize that I’m not alone in my journey. I laughed, I cried, and I felt at peace while reading. It brings to light the topics that we rarely admit to ourselves, much less anyone else. It’s a great read that I recommend to all moms!
