An international lawyer with a budding career, Lisa-Jo Baker never dreamed of being a mother. But then she had kids - and everything changed! After discovering that "how to" books can't prepare a woman for the sheer joy and love that comes with parenting, she shares her dawning realization that being a mom isn't about being perfect - it's about being present. A testament to how much God loves and cherishes mothers and to the extraordinary and indescribable blessings of motherhood!

Surprised by Motherhood is Lisa-Jos story of becoming and being a mom, and in the process, discovering that all the what to expect and how to books in the world can never truly prepare you for the sheer exhilaration, joy, and terrifying love that accompanies motherhood.
Set partly in South Africa and partly in the US (with a slight detour to Ukraine along the way), Surprised by Motherhood is a poignant memoir of one womans dawning realization that being a mom isnt about being perfectits about being present.
This is a book that is straight-from-the-hip honest, straight-out-hilarious, and straight-from-God holy...that I will turn to again and again.
