“I love Diary of a SAHM. It’s fun, real and inspiring. Jess Newman’s engaging style feels like a chat with a friend. I’ve met her devoted family and seen first- hand the love they enjoy from God and share together. It’s what sustains her in the tiring, inspiring, maddening and enriching task of parenthood. Reading of Jess’ adventures and reflections, I, too, am inspired to live joyfully and well.”
Mel Hayde, Author, Terrific Toddlers
“I know the responsibility that rests upon me- that rests on us as parents- is to raise these little people for God’s glory. He has entrusted us with them. The hard part is not ensuring our hearts are always towards our children so we can achieve this purpose… the hard part is to raise them with a Godly attitude, to make certain that their hearts, and our own, are fixed firmly on following God’s.”
Jess is a stay-at-home-mum. With three children she deals daily with dramas that result from babies refusing to sleep, tantrums thrown in shopping centres, and her own melodramatic tendencies. Sometimes she’s sure her children were sent to test her, and to prove she’s not exactly the best person for the job. She’s also certain that God blessed her with these little monkeys and is doing His best to help her raise them for His glory. Which in her mind, is the highest calling in life. This is her diary: Always authentic, generally hopeful, and more than a little crazy.
“Diary of a SAHM is something I could read over and over. What an encouragement but also very easy to relate to rather than a book telling me how to be a good Christian mum.”- Lisa, Mummy’s Undeserved Blessings
“….Such an encouragement and it’s so real and honest. It’s so refreshing to read something that is not all gloss and trying to create a perfect image of motherhood …. I love how you have woven your faith through everyday stories” Deb, Aspiring Mum
“I. can’t. put. it. down.” Miss Cinders, The Miss Cinders
“She writes as if she is talking to you in real, honest and at times hilarious every day language that seemed to make me giggle every few minutes. Sometimes we just need to laugh when life feels like it’s falling in and Jess certainly brings out the brighter side to parenting…” Nada, The Soul of My Feet
