MEGAN LA FOLLETT grew up in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains, where she explored her first beloved sanctuary from the back of a pony named Silver. As a married graduate student, she became a working mother to a golden-haired and strong-willed daughter. With the birth of a second child, she chose to stay at home. Two years later, another son joined the family and she began to work from home as an editor and writer. Following the birth of a third son, she joined the team at Ascending Leaders, a Christian nonprofit, as the communications lead. Her life is built on her passion for story and finding her place in the greatest story of all.
For Modern Day Moms
Who do you know who needs this book? It's a book that will bring grace and joy and a deeper desire to know God into the lives of the women who read it. It's not a book about what to do to become a better Christian or a godly mother. It's a book about connecting with God, no matter where you're at and regardless of whether you can make any changes to your habits, your circumstances, or the things you think you need to do to be better.
This is the book I wish I'd read when I moved across the country with my little family and became a stay-at-home mom for the first time, with two children two and under. When I felt so incompetent and lonely and didn't measure up to what I thought a Christian stay-at-home mom should be.
This is the message I needed to hear when postpartum depression hit after my third child, and I sat on the floor in a fuzzy pink bathrobe, weeping uncontrollably into my sleeve, while my husband left to run field trials for work.
The words that would have soothed my soul every time I failed at something. At work. At home. In my marriage.
Every time I sinned, screwed up, couldn't stand myself.
God is nearer than you think.
Where you are. As you are.
I know there are women who need to hear these words right now.
