Product Info:   Book Description

Close to Home is for every young mother who's ever wished children came with an instruction manual; who's ever longed for just one quiet minute to finish a thought or utter a prayer; who's ever despaired over perfecting herself in time to become a good example for her children; who's ever wondered why "happily ever after" takes so much darn work.With courage, humor and unflinching honesty, Molly Sabourin addresses all these frustrations and more-offering not answers or solutions, but a new perspective, a pat on the shoulder, a reassuring "I've been there too, and there is hope." Those who share her "quest for patience, peace, and perseverance" will see themselves in these pages, laugh a little, cry a little and close the book with new strength to continue the quest."Close to Home is accessible, engaging and inspiring. Molly Sabourin tickles my funny bone. . . . She puts me at ease by admitting her own weaknesses. . . " -Jenny Schroedel, author
