Stepping on Cheerios: Finding God in the Chaos and Clutter of Life
Being a mother isn’t easy. Sometimes it’s hard to experience a personal connection with God and community when you are caught up in the chaos of just “doing family”.
Independent and self-sufficient, author Betsy Singleton Snyder lived a full and busy life as a pastor, missionary, and wife to a husband who served in the U.S. House of Representatives. She had her first child at age 44, then at 47, she found out she was carrying triplets. Suddenly finding herself overwhelmed is an understatement.

It’s a comical story of one woman’s realization that her crazy life is a gift and how she found the grace in it.

Book Review by Bree Herron
I step on cereal all the time, I crunch them and I curse them. Not that anyone needs to hear my woes with toddler trails of food. I felt that this book was written for just me, though and I hope that is how other moms have felt.
I laughed, I nodded and I loved this book. It was a really nice book to relate to, as a mom. I was finding myself in agreement, nodding and thinking “oh, that’s my life!” it was real, it was authenticate yet, held tales that moms resound with. It was personal to this author, she gave a piece of her life in writing this book. As the reader progresses they can feel her heart and mind on the pages. Through good and bad the author provided her stories of motherhood to those that could use a laugh.
Overall, moms of faith and moms even struggling with faith will find this book charming. The siren call of motherhood will sweep them through the stories and moments that will have them thinking they are in the book.
