Stepping on Cheerios By Betsy Snyder

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.

MY Thoughts...
This was not a book for you if your looking for a biblical  read and advice. There is no encouragement or help for moms looking for it in a self help book.
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.
I gave this book 3 stars, maybe young moms will enjoy this one.
The Mary Reader received this book from the publisher for review. A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.


  1. I don't want to read this one.

  2. I am way to old to need to read this.

  3. So this so not a book for me, I pass on this book.

  4. Probably not for me. Thank you for being honest and sharing.

  5. I don't buy books that you don't recommend. I always look to see if you say 4 or 5 then I buy.

  6. Great review! I agree on if you have adult children, it's probably not for you. Mine are still young enough I could relate more to the author.

  7. Not my kind of read. But I thank you for taking time to read and share it.

  8. Nice honest opinion on this one. Thanks Mary

  12. I'm not a mom yet so this isn't for me. Thanks for sharing! :)

  13. I will definitely pass on this one because if you don't really like the book then I know that I wouldn't either. Besides, my children are both grown. Thanks for your honest review!

  14. Great review! Sounds like a good book for my daughter. Thank you Mary!
