9781591280811: Loving the Little Years: Motherhood in the Trenches

Loving the Little Years is a bestselling book of thoughts for mothering young children. It's written by a mom, for you moms -- for when you are motivated, for when you are discouraged, for the times when discipline seems fruitless, and for when you are just plain old tired.

When you're a mom, the opportunities for growth of character, maturity, and enjoyment abound -- but you have to be willing. You have to open your heart to the tumble of mothering, even when you're waist deep in the trenches of unfolded laundry and sick kids and no sleep. Here's encouragement and advice from Loving the the Little Years: As you deal with your children, deal with yourself always and first. This is what it looks like, and feels like, to walk as a mother with God.

A note from Rachel:
"I didn't write this book because mothering little ones is easy for me. I wrote it because it isn't. I know that this is a hard job, because I am right here in the middle of it. I know you need encouragement -- because I do too."

About the Author:

Rachel Jankovic is a wife, homemaker, and mother. She received her bachelor's degree in Liberal Arts & Culture from New Saint Andrews College, but mostly reads cookbooks now to avoid story grip (being highly susceptible). In 2003, she married her husband Luke, and they have seven children who know how to party: Evangeline (11), Daphne (9), Chloe (8), Titus (8), and Blaire (5) Shadrach (3), and Moses (2 months). Rachel loves color, fabric, yarn to knit with, kids to laugh at, and laundry (not so much).

Review:

Loving the Little Years is a delightful book. That may seem a strange comment on a book that deals with life with such candor. It's all here: the fights in the back of the car, the dirty diapers, sinks full of dishes, runny noses, exhaustion--all the stuff of having five young children. It is a fresh and honest book, because it faces the problem of sin (both in kids and in parents). It is filled with profound insights into living wisely as a Christian parent. It has all the things I look for in a parenting book the focus is nurture, not just control; the motivation and empowerment is grace and not efforts. This book will help any mom (or dad for that matter) with loving the little years. --Tedd Tripp, pastor and author of Shepherding a Child's Heart

Insightful, encouraging, honest and practical and a great deal of fun to read. Rachel is a blessing to her husband and her little ones. Now she is also a blessing to me and mine. May this book bless you and yours as well. --R.C. Sproul, Jr.

Mothers of little people have one of the most challenging and important jobs on earth. But it is a humble job. Rachel Jankovic is a woman who lives out her story with humility, grace, and a houseful of humor. And with five exuberant children, ages five and under, you can be sure she knows what she is talking about. -- --Nancy Wilson, author of Praise Her in the Gates and The Fruit of Her Hands
