Just Moms! It Is Here! Someone Pinch Me!


During my morning emailing routine I was greeted by a lovely email from Barclay Press announcing the release of the book I've been keeping you all updated on....Just Moms: Conveying Justice in an Unjust World.

I've been getting nothing done today, regarding my house and children, instead I've been online spreading the word!

So, you all are next on my list of people to share with.

Here is one endorsement we received:

Not just moms, but dads and kids and teachers and church folk—all
pushed to “the places parenthood pushes us.” We need these honest
moms and their tales of trying to teach justice in an unjust world.
We need to listen as they debate their own choices to work outside
the home or not, to go to church each week or not, to pray out loud
for the runt, to buy Happy Meals, to use the dishwasher, to live in
white suburbs, and to place their ideals up against everyday
disappointments and grace.

You can follow the link in this post and read the introduction and a sample chapter, plus see of listing of all the contributing authors!

You can also place an order to receive a copy by April 5th. Just in time for Mother's Day!

Spread the word! If you post something about this book on one of your blogs, I'd love to read it...so let me know!
