Editorial Reviews


"Most authors write of their early mothering years long after their kids have traded diapers for designer jeans and a bottle of milk for a diet Coke. But Kent wrote this book with preschoolers playing--or sleeping or fighting or laughing or whining--in the background. The result is a realistic book."

—Lynne Hybels, from the Foreword

"At-home mom Keri Wyatt Kent shows how the responsibilities of parenting are connected to prayer, listening, service, simplicity, and solitude. She assures readers that even amid the guilt, pressures, and diapers, any mother can grow in her relationship with God."

Today's Christian Woman (November/December 2000)

"Kent, a mother of two preschoolers, speaks with authority on motherhood's daily distractions. An excellent choice for women's study groups."

CBA Marketplace, August 2000

"Rare is the book I would call 'life-changing,' but God's Whisper in a Mother's Chaos qualifies for me. I remember the exact moment when I was reading the chapter on guilt and realized that all those little, seemingly insignificant things that I do for my family--things that no one notices or even knows about--matter to God. And rather than condemning me because I can't find thirty minutes every day for a quiet time, God is teaching me how to grow closer to him, i.e., how to be more like Jesus, in the midst of the chaos that is my life. I've a long way to go, but I have begun to look for Jesus in my daily life rather than see my responsibilities as a hindrance to my spiritual growth."

—Theresa Grosh, MOPS Coordinator, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

"Keri Wyatt Kent has done a beautiful job bringing life to a daily friendship with God. This book equips mothers with a balanced approach to both faith and motherhood. It is filled with humor, wisdom and large doses of perspective to encourage women who are in the midst of the child-rearing years. What a wonderful resource for mothers everywhere!"

—Jill Savage, founder and national director of Hearts at Home

"I've watched Keri Kent play out her faith as a journalist, a church volunteer, a wife and a mother--and I'm thrilled she has used these real-life experiences to create this inspiring and practical book. You'll benefit greatly from her insights and wisdom. And through it all, you'll hear God's whisper in a mother's chaos."

—Lee Strobel, author The Case for Christ

"Keri Kent has written a gentle and graceful book that will guide many people into lives of greater richness and freedom. She gives sorely needed wisdom for making spiritual depths available to real people."

—John Ortberg, author of The Life You've Always Wanted

"Kent gives practical real-life experiences of how to listen for the whisper of God's still, small voice in the midst of chaos. I love how she affirms moms, giving them hope, encouragement and the reassurance that raising children is 'an honorable and heroic vocation.'"

—Fern Nichols, founder and president of Moms in Touch

"God's Whisper in a Mother's Chaos effectively comforts and guides parents of young children, especially mothers. It gives a needed expression to their situation and shows them how to lean on the Strong Hand that is present with the Whisper. The advice is simple but profound."

—Dallas Willard, author of The Spirit of the Disciplines
