I read this book last night and was really amazed by it! It could have been me in so many ways!

A mother of three who loves her children, and dreams of doing great things. Instead it seems like life hands her lots of lemons! She is too overwhelmed to make lemonade and is just trying to keep her head above the water. Her baby's eardrum bursts, the church that she helped organize the ladies ministry seems to not appreciate her anymore because she does not have a degree, her husband loses his job, and all through it she imagines herself fighting or conquering unknown wonders or missions of the world.

In the end she sees through a magazine article how she quietly affects people's lives without it being something big or great. As a mother and wife, a gentle encourager of people she had more of a effect on them than she knew.

Of course there were ways I was not like her, but I could really relate to this book.

It is new, just published by Bethany House
