Sarah Parshall Perry in her new book, “Sand In My Sandwich book coverSand In My Sandwich” published by Revell gives us And Other Motherhood Messes I’m Learning to Love.

From the Back Cover:  There is no perfect family, no life free of mess.
But in the midst of all of it, God is there, reminding us, “My child, I got this.”

You know that thing when you’re in Walmart at noon before you discover you haven’t brushed your teeth? Sarah Parshall Perry gets that. She also gets weird things showing up in her bed, her daughter requesting war paint, and her son crawling into a giant blue sock on Christmas morning. Sometimes, she gets that conflicted feeling of finding her kids hanging out in the dog’s cage and realizing that, yes, dog cages are not for people, but . . . they have stopped getting into trouble.

According to Perry, “The hardest stuff is the quickest way to God.” And if the systematic destruction of her carefully planned life is any indication, she’s on the fast track to sainthood! A mother of three children, two of whom are on the autism spectrum, she has experienced plenty of ups and downs. But from the chaos of her “ordinary” life, she pulls truth packed with humor, poignancy, and a naked honesty that will make you realize you are not alone in this delightfully messy thing called motherhood.

So sit back, relax awhile, and get ready to laugh.

It is an experience being a parent. That little bundle of joy grows up and, without meaning to causes all kinds of trouble. If you have more than one child the volume of incidents multiplies. There is nothing that can really prepare you for parenting except, maybe, parents and grandparents and even that is limited. Nope, parenting takes you straight to The Father. Sarah Parshall Perry knows about parenting. And she is nice enough to share her experiences with us. If you are a parent then, I believe, this book will be a resource for you. A way to identify with the issues you are facing and see that when it happened to Ms. Perry she was able to find some humor in the situation. Perhaps you will too.
