—Heidi Miller, assistant professor of Christian worship, Perkins School of Theology
"With humor and spunk, Rachel Gerber takes us on a wondrous, demanding Emmaus journey all her own, where she recognizes God and returns to spread the word. Good news for other parents needing encouragement in their own parenting!"
—Bonnie Miller-McLemore, author of In the Midst of Chaos: Care of Children as Spiritual Practice
"This book will put a shine into any beleaguered day. With sparkling transparency, Rachel reveals the mess and marvel of life with little people. Amid a cascade of daily chaos, she breaks open ordinary moments with such winsome vulnerability that I was captivated anew by the holy wonder of it all."
Sara Wenger Shenk, president of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary
"As a grandmother, I continually remembered young parents I know and love while reading this book. Rachel creates vivid images in which other young parents can find themselves, but then digs deeper to unearth and share her early parenthood spiritual journey. As she uncovers the holy in the midst of growing laundry piles and disrupted nights, she offers lifelines of hope and inspiration to other overwhelmed bearers of God's blessings."
—Elsie Rempel, author of Please Pass the Faith: The Art of Spiritual Grandparenting
"This book is warm, wise, funny, and full of real-life moments with the author and her family. Rachel's storytelling and spiritual insight are great gifts that I look forward to sharing with others, especially with parents of young children. An inspiring and thoughtful book."
—April Yamasaki, author of Sacred Pauses: Spiritual Practices for Personal Renewal
"In her own straightforward, energetic voice, Rachel Gerber invites you into her world; a world brimming with boisterous boys, plenty of work, and a whiff of the Holy. As she recounts parenting peaks and valleys, she invites us to see God calling and caring for us, even—or especially—in seemingly mundane moments."
—Hannah Heinzekehr, director of communications and marketing, Mennonite Church USA
