Descriptions du produit

A lawyer with a well-stamped passport and a passion for human rights, Lisa-Jo Baker never wanted to be a mom. And then she had kids. Having lost her own mother to cancer as a teenager, Lisa-Jo felt lost on her journey to womanhood and wholly unprepared to raise children."Surprised by Motherhood" is Lisa-Jo's story of becoming and being a mom, and in the process, discovering that all the "what to expect" and "how to" books in the world can never truly prepare you for the sheer exhilaration, joy, and terrifying love that accompanies motherhood.Set partly in South Africa and partly in the US (with a slight detour to Ukraine along the way), "Surprised by Motherhood" is a poignant memoir of one woman's dawning realization that being a mom isn't about being perfect--it's about being present.

This is a mom who knows motherhood is hard. But worth it. 1 avril 2014
Par Andrea - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I received an advance digital copy from Tyndale House Publishers of Lisa-Jo Baker's upcoming book, Surprised By Motherhood. I did a little happy dance when I received the email because a) I love Lisa-Jo's blog and her heart, and b) I didn't think I could wait one moment longer to read her book!

As I curled up with my tea to read her heart, I knew I was sharing this precious time with a kindred spirit, another mom who knows the value of a cup of tea to the soul. Lisa-Jo shares her journey from losing her own mother at the age of 18, to declaring she will never have children, to being surprised by her fierce love for her babies as they began to arrive five years into her marriage. I cried with her. I laughed with her. I nodded my head as so many of her stories reflected my own.

Like the time her first son was born and her family was celebrating her birthday, finishing all the food while she nursed the baby until there was nothing left for her.

Or describing the courage it takes to trim a newborn's fingernails.

Or giving up trying to sneak veggies in to a meal and simply serving mac and cheese because that's all she had the energy for.

Or the realization that there is no point in owning anything lovely when you have two boys, bent on destruction.

And while my life plan since I was 10 was to start having kids when I was 23 and to have them every 2.5 years after than until we were done, still motherhood looks nothing like I imagined it. And I think that's the point.

Lisa-Jo's heart is for moms to know they are not alone in this journey that looks so unlike our childhood dreams. On the days that the toddler screams because you cut his toast wrong. On the days your nine year old boy shouts things at you that break your heart. On the days its an effort to get out of bed, never mind showering and getting dressed.

Sitting with Lisa-Jo, sipping hot tea, and listening to her stories, to her heart, makes you believe you can do this.

And you know what? You can. Because God is with you every single step of the way.

Encouragement for Moms Everywhere 1 avril 2014
Par Rachel Lundy - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle
Lisa-Jo Baker is a writer, encourager of women, and cheerleader for moms. When I heard that she was writing a memoir of her life and the way motherhood changed her, I knew it would be a delight and encouragement to read. As expected, the book did not disappoint. Lisa-Jo weaves words and writes with a beauty and honesty that will immediately draw you in.

In Surprised by Motherhood, Lisa-Jo tells her story of growing up in South Africa and losing her mom at the age of 18. She knew that she never wanted to be a mom herself, but God had different plans! He worked in her heart and healed her. He gave her children who have taught her, challenged her, and helped to change her. Lisa-Jo learned that motherhood is hard, but glorious.

This isn't a "how-to" book with secrets and formulas for helping babies sleep, potty training little ones, instructing toddlers, or raising teenagers. This is the story of the making of a mother. It is Lisa-Jo's story, and her heart is in these pages. This story is for all of the exhausted and tired moms who think they can't do it. It is for the moms who are searching for happiness and humor in the mundane. This book is for all women who enjoy a good story of motherhood and mess and joy.

I personally enjoyed reading Lisa-Jo's story very much. Even if you are a regular reader on her blog, there is so much in this book that will be new. It is worth the read!

Tyndale House Publishers, Inc. provided me with a complimentary review copy of Surprised by Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Motherhood is the breath of God on your heart, stirring it to forever feel more, care more, love harder than you ever thought. 1 avril 2014
Par Alia Joy - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
As a new mom, I believed I was failing at motherhood. I wished I had someone to remind me to dance in wild grace and laugh hard and hug too long. And that it's ok to cry a bit when they got up from bed AGAIN. It's ok. You're doing a good job.

I wished I had the hope and life-giving words shared in Lisa Jo Baker's new book, Surprised by Motherhood.

I read the whole thing in 2 nights staying up way past my bedtime like all good mothers do because, quiet.

But this isn't just a book for new moms. It's a book for all the moms.

It's not your regular mommy/parenting book. It's an exploration of the weight of motherhood, the glory inherent in raising tiny people, the struggles of growing up into a calling that often feels confusing and heartbreaking and wonderful all at the same time. It's the tale of a motherless daughter and the way God fills gaps in holes we never even knew we had.

I think you know what I'm going to say. I'm in LOVE with Lisa Jo's book. Because she tells the just a mom's there's no such thing. And you just might believe her when it's all said and done.

Best book I've read about being a mom EVER! 2 avril 2014
Par Aidan OMeara Kwiatkowski - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I've read sooooooo many books like this, but none actually LIKE THIS. This book is THE book. Let me put it this way...I've never written a review for a book, ever. Never ever. I just don't do that kind of thing. But I actually felt that I just had to write something for this one. She just gets it. I could not put this book down. Lisa Jo Baker just nailed it home. Just buy this book, and then curl up with a cup of tea and melt into her writing. You'll be happy you did.

Truth that EVERY woman needs to hear! 1 avril 2014
Par Myers Family - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Lisa-Jo has beautifully achieved a "can't-put-it-down" memoir that reaches widely beyond her own story into the lives of every woman who struggles with her identity and the world's expectations for the definition of "womanhood".

"I think God wants you to now it doesn't matter to Him.
God wants you to know that whether you ever have children or not, He loves you for you.
And what He wants most is for you to love Him back."

A standing ovation! The highlight of my week!

Going forward in a fresh coat of grace and maple syrup!
