Sand in My Sandwich (and Other Motherhood Messes I’m Learning to Love)

by Sarah Parshall Perry

What an important book! Let me tell you, this is such a big topic because it is something that so many people are dealing with. Marriage struggles, children with severe “disorders” and personal health problems. Sound familiar? Welcome to the modern mom’s life!

Sarah attacks this subject with a vigor and complete honesty. Her boys’ medical rap sheets include a diagnosis of severe autism, Asperger’s syndrome, OCD, among other things. While she takes us in the everyday life of a mom trying to understand her child, she does so with wit, passion and a deep love of God.

Please pick up a copy of this book. You might think twice before scowling at the family in the booth next to you as their child is crying, vomiting, screaming, etc… Bible verse after Bible verse, Sarah talks us through her growth. It’s such a beautiful picture. It brought tears to my eyes. As you know, I am someone that believes in transparency (thus the name of my blog). Sarah doesn’t hide a thing! She lays it out there so that God can be given all the glory and we can learn and grow from her life lessons.

Thank you, Revell, for a copy of this wonderful book! As always, this is my honest review. Here’s to many more!!
