I just reviewed a Christian parenting book – The Minivan Years: Celebrating the Hectic Joys of Motherhood, by Olivia Bruner. It has some wonderful stories of imperfect parenting, and some great ideas on things to do with your children as well as tips on how to cope when you’re stressed.

While I am not Christian, I still found some great ideas for family activities as well as parenting survival tips, which you can see at my review. However, the book is definitely aimed at Christians; it intersperses funny family anecdotes with Scriptures and religious discussions. A Christian mom will get the most out of The Minivan Years, so I’m offering to send it to the contest winner.

If you want to win a copy of The Minivan Years, as well as a couple surprise books, just leave a comment on the review at A Gaggle of Book Reviews by Friday 1/25 at midnight! I’ll draw a winner, and ship it out soon after that. For my own financial well-being, I would prefer entrants to be in the US and Canada only. C’mon go enter!
