Long Days of Small Things - Catherine McNiel


4 Stars
(I am basing this on what I was able to listen to)


ABOUT THE BOOK - 
Rich, soul-inspiring practices for moms who have neither quiet nor time.
Dirty laundry, crayon-smeared bills, and smashed crackers . . . And there's your Bible--buried under a pile of diapers. Bleary-eyed from lack of sleep, without a moment of peace and quiet, you wonder if the spiritual life you crave is even possible. But God sees you. He designed this parenting journey, after all. He understands the chaos of motherhood. And he joins you in everything--whether you're scrubbing the floor, nursing a fussy newborn, or driving to soccer practice. Catherine McNiel invites you to connect with God right here, in the sacred mundane of every mothering moment.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR  -

MY THOUGHTS -
This book seems like a really wonderful book, very sweet, funny at times, and honest! It is a book that any young mother or mother - to -be would love! My own daughter, who is pregnant (due in Sept.) would really like this book. I am actually thinking about getting it for her.
Unfortunately - I was not able to finish the audio. I only listened into chapter 3. It was not any fault of the book or the author! It was the audio platform that I used to listen. I will not go on and on because I don't want it to overtake the review.
But - I used Downpour (for the first time) It was very glitchy, wouldn't keep my place, and I had to keep signing in every time. And I did find in the reviews that others had the same problem.
So I would recommend just getting the actual book or e-book or use Audible. Because this did seem like a great book. It got lots of great reviews on Amazon.
My apologies to the author that I was not able to do a better review.

I voluntarily posted this review after receiving a copy of this book from AudioBookWorm Promotions  -  Thank You!
