Publisher's Description

We all know that day-to-day living can be difficult or, at times, decorated with unexpected joys. But, life also throws out the unthinkable and unimaginable. When life comes at you, who needs fiction? The Totaled Woman proves that real life is much stranger than any fiction you ll ever read Comprising individual true stories, The Totaled Woman shares the challenges and joys from a mother?'s perspective in a home with five precocious children and a brilliant (if impractical) scientist husband. Marcia Veldhuis lays the reality of motherhood and life on the line in the individual events she shares with the reader. From chasing owls out of the house and setting shoes on fire, to donning goggles to peel onions and finding a dead husband, Veldhuis invites the reader into the joy, sorrow, hilarity and difficulty of each unbelievable situation. In The Totaled Woman, Veldhuis looks beyond the crisis of the moment and finds the lessons that God would have. Veldhuis says, These stories are true, totally true. There are perhaps some writers who would feel the need to pad truth with fiction or put several stories together to make that one seem more fantastical. This has never been needed in our home Day-to-day living has always been stranger than fiction. Readers of all ages will enjoy this book, which includes simple artwork by the author that adds to the humor and personality of the overall work. You will clearly see that joy in the Lord is the strength of families and thereby, nations.

    The Totaled Woman: True Slices of Life from a Mother of Five by Marcia Veldhuis - the title says it all this a book written by a mother of five talking about life with five children and a brilliant scientist for a husband.When I received this book, I was quite excited to start on it. Marcia Veldhuis is a mother of five while Im a mother of four. I figured that I would have a lot to relate to. I wasnt wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Totaled Woman: True Slices of Life from a Mother of Five by Marcia Veldhuis. Ms. Veldhuis shares slices of their life in such a humorous but insightful way. She shares the joys and delights of caring for her family. When she writes about some of the difficulties they faced, sometimes it still seems funny the way she talks about it. It is very encouraging for a mother like me, seeing that you can actually sit back and try to see your circumstances the way God would actually want you to view it. Sometimes, when Im in such a stressful situation with my family, Id sit and pick up the book and read a few chapters. Its a reminder for me to learn to enjoy my children and look at our family in another perspective.This is one book that I would highly recommend moms to buy. It isnt a devotional but her true stories and insights will lead a mom to seek the Lord in all that she does to care for her family.
