About

Um, excuse me, but . . . do these children come with dental?

Sarah Parshall Perry knew that raising kids would be different from climbing the corporate ladder. But she wasn't ready for just how different. Wasn't a job just a job? And what was that on her shirt? Sarah left the corporate world with a plan to win at mothering and was downright blindsided. Nothing went as planned, everything was foreign, and her bosses didn't always understand her value to the organization.

With her signature wit, lawyer-turned-stay-at-home-mommy Sarah says what all of us are thinking when we trade annual reports for homework help and sleepless nights. Sarah invites you to laugh alongside her in the "Are you kidding me?!" moments that come with the job of growing people. Crossing the divide between "employee" and "mother" is hard. But thankfully, it's also hilarious.

This book isn't just her story. It's your story. The story of every mother who gives up one thing to get something better--and ends up finding out what she's worth along the way.

"I have laughed and cried with this award-winning storyteller who is 'thankful to God for the challenges that filled my life after marriage . . . because the untidying of life was the only way I started looking for him.' As a mother who struggled with God's call to leave an enjoyable broadcast career to raise my two preschoolers, I am eager to endorse the latest tragicomedy from one of my most memorable authors and guests."--Moira Brown, host of 100 Huntley Street

Endorsements

"The great God of stewardship wastes nothing of our experience! The systematic destruction of Sarah Parshall Perry's carefully planned life did not end in devastation. I have laughed and cried with this award-winning storyteller, who is 'thankful to God for the challenges that filled my life after marriage . . . because the untidying of life was the only way I started looking for him.' Embracing what heaven allowed has produced a mom who is enjoying God's promised 'reward' and made Sarah a champion and encourager of families living with disabilities. As a mother who struggled with God's call to leave an enjoyable broadcast career to raise my two preschoolers, I am eager to endorse the latest tragicomedy from one of my most memorable authors and guests."
