Stepping on Cheerios: Finding God in the Chaos and Clutter of Life (Abingdon Press, April 2017)

Family life is beautiful and motherhood is a privilege, but it ain’t no picnic!

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.

Stepping on Cheerios is a collection of funny, warm, and charming tales from the frontlines of parenthood, written for women who are juggling to accomplish everyday feats of work, motherhood, marriage, church, and more. 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.

  • “Stepping on Cheerios” by author Betsy Singleton Snyder is a breath of fresh air. It is the kind of book that a mother needs to keep and read whenever she needs a pick me up moment. You will find yourself smiling right along with the author because you know just how she feels. After all you have these kinds of days, too.  I really enjoyed reading every page.

  • I definitely enjoyed this fast, interesting read. Ms. Synder did an incredible job and has really given me lots to ponder on as a mom. My life as a parent is a blessing not a burden no matter how crazy wild it can get. I highly recommend this to all parents, new and seasoned! You’ll find grace and peace in the middle of what may be an overwhelming experience and it will really help! 

  • This book was a wonderful writing and compelling to read with full of the real story that unexpected are happening in the real life that would be very inspire me in so many way to life our live in the crazy and busyness in this generation or the way to looking forward of life to live and so many thing that can be happening.

  • What an awesome story. I believe every mom should read this story. It’s very helpful. I really loved the stories of the other moms. It’s nice to see that I am not alonebout there and other moms have been through the same thing.

    I am glad that this book is out there for mom’s. Highly recommend this book. It will give you some things to think about as well and good lesson for us mom’s.

  • Stepping on Cheerios is a great read that reminds you to have balance.  It offers some insight to let you know that you aren’t alone in the chaos. There are parts that will make you want to cry and others that will have you laughing like crazy. The book is well written, but a little unorganized. I felt like I was jumping back and forth at parts, but overall it was a steady read that  I would recommend to other moms that could appreciate the chaos.

  • It has some stories that are geared more towards moms of younger kids. Has some funny stories that moms of young ones my enjoy and find funny.

    The read for me as a mom of an adult child was alright but not the best book that I have read for parents.

  • Stepping on Cheerios: Finding God in the Chaos and Clutter of Life is written in a very conversational tone and includes a variety of popular cultural references. The book provides a good reminder about keeping things in perspective and being able to see the blessings that are all around us through the use of Biblical tie-ins to the text. This book can be enjoyed by all moms, but I think mother’s of young children will particularly relate and enjoy this one.

  • Ms. Synder made a good point in allowing the reader to understand that mothers need to make sure God is the focal point before their children. Children are important, but as mothers they need to spend time with the Lord and make him a priority.

  • I desperately needed this book. Can I just come right out and say that? I needed it. I am a mother of five children; 1 boy and 4 girls, ranging in age from 5 years old to 14 years old. On any given day, I am balancing My Little Pony toys, dress up time, tea parties, training bras, skateboards, Band practice, puberty, the chore list, picky eaters and sibling arguments.

    Which is why, someday, I am going to hug Betsy Singleton Snyder breathless. She put her experience with motherhood out there for all to see. The great, the wonderful, the chaotic, the messy, the silly and the frustrating. And it was awesome.

  • A personal story about the crazy busy life as mom. You will relate to Betsy’s experiences and see your life as mom as similar to other moms.
