This isn't that parenting book. You know, the kind that makes you feel utterly inadequate and convinced you’ll probably mess up your little humans.
As author, speaker, and mom Betsy Kerekes is here to tell you it’s not about being a "better" parent, it’s about being a happier parent. Not when your kids are older, not when your kids are easier, but right now. Today even.
And it’s possible, with a little laughter.
Here’s a glimpse of what you’ll discover in Be a Happier Parent or Laugh Trying:

Author Heather Anderson Renshaw, mother of five, is a lot like you. She knows that motherhood can be wild, crazy, and often hilarious. She feels sometimes like she's barely keeping up, and maybe even failing at the whole "mom thing." Thankfully, as she shares in these pages, motherhood isn't a trip that's meant to be taken alone. God's got this, and the more we let him lead, the more we find the fruits of his Holy Spirit taking root in our hearts and in our families.
Practical suggestions, tips, and ideas for ways to practice the corporal works of mercy in the home, plus reflection questions. Each chapter also includes a prayer for God’s guidance in our pursuit of the “little way” of the family.
