Jennifer Grant is a gifted, thoughtful writer. Her prose shines, as does her personality in this lovely book. Although she offers wise, gentle advice, it's more a parenting memoir than how-to book. Through well-crafted stories, she shows, rather than tells, what it looks like to parent intentionally.
What is a good parent? We moms often set impossible standards for ourselves, and feel that we can never be “a good mom.” Or at least a good enough mom. Jennifer's suggestion: approach the process with a blend of intention, strategy and grace.
Momumental was so encouraging to me as a mom. Jennifer writes honestly about her own mistakes, her own perfectionism, and how her own family of origin impacted her. She also tells beautiful stories about her family that made me laugh and cry.
I’m recommending this book who anyone who is raising children—which is a messy but beautiful art.
