Ever wondered if you're the only parent who struggles to parent well every moment of every day?
Well, you're not.
And this book will prove it.
From author and poet Rachel Toalson comes a brave offering the parenting world has never seen before: a raw, uncensored look at what it's like to be a parent, steering a family (and a large one, at that) toward intentional living.
On Wisdom, Love, Joy and Belief is a beautiful collection of journal entries Rachel penned during the year her family spent stretching more deeply into their family values--some days that ended well, some days that ended badly. Rachel wrote about her experiences in twelve diaries, spanning each month of the year.
This first book of the Family on Purpose series includes the journals of January, February, March and April, and through Rachel's insights and candor, you'll learn
*    The wisdom that lies in knowing (and accepting) who we and our children were made to be
*    The power of letting ourselves fail
*    How feeling that it's hard to love your kids well on any given day is actually a normal thing
*    Why you should give yourself permission to take a day of rest
*    How eliminating "hurry up" can help you love better
*    The blessing of a focused, sticky-brained child (though it hardly feels like a blessing in the moment)
*    The importance of play, from play researcher Stuart Brown
*    The way gratitude can point us back to joy
*    Where to find worthiness when it's slipped away
*    What you can do to help minimize bullying
and much more.
Recognizing the value of authenticity, which is often missing from the parenting world, Rachel realized she had to share, honestly and vulnerably, what it's like to live in the everyday tension between idealistic parenting (who we're supposed to be) and realistic parenting (who we actually are). Part diary, part spiritual devotional and part research collection, the Family on Purpose series will teach, guide, and, most of all encourage.
"Family on Purpose is the most vulnerable and honest preparation for parents-to-be. I've learned more from Rachel's stories than from any other."
-Wouter ter Keurs, parent & journalist
"As a mother, I appreciated reading about some of the feelings that Rachel had on some of the more frustrating days, because it makes me feel not alone. I also loved when she highlighted ways in which practicing their family values brought light to their lives. It has helped me look at situations in a different light with my own kids and what they might be thinking."
-Sarah Drake, parent & artist
