Author and former journalist Leah Spina received 23 endorsements for her new book Stop and Smell Your Children: Laugh and Enjoy the Little Years, including endorsements from WORLD magazine and well-known author Katrina Kenison. From new parents to seasoned grandparents, readers of advance copies found Spina’s book encouraging, inspiring and humorous.
Mary Jackson of World magazine writes, “Leah recounts the early stages of parenthood with humor, candor, and careful reflection. This book will help young and prospective mothers and couples savor the younger years rather than just plod through them.”
Spina believes that changing your perspective as a new parent can change everything for the better. Her message is to encourage overwhelmed, stressed out mothers with wit, humor and honest candidacy about the challenges of new parenthood through real-life stories.
Author Katrina Kenison, of Mitten Strings from God, says, “Leah’s commitment to the spiritual work of motherhood is evident on every page of this lovingly written reminder to slow down and savor every moment.”
The book is written specifically for busy moms with short, easy-read sections. At the end of each chapter, Spina offers mothers quick, constructive takeaways to apply to their parenting season. Spina touches on many parenting challenges with brutal honesty and quick-witted humor: morning sickness, the sleepless newborn, eating out with toddlers, potty training, etc.
New parent challenges and uproarious humor are all rooted in Spina’s heart-warming and inspirational love for her children and motherhood; she helps readers find beauty in the chaos of parenthood.
“Leah has such a super perspective of children, and not the typical ‘can't wait 'til they are grown and gone’ mentality. Her creative ways of loving and cherishing these little blessings will encourage you! Her joy and energy is contagious!” writes Hilary Spivey, Mother of five, ages two to fourteen.
The book is now available for preorder here http://amzn.to/1EpMfSZ and launches October 6.

She resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and has been married to her best friend David for six years. She spends most of her time reading Curious George picture books to her white-haired son, Samson, playing Princesses with her two-year-old daughter Esther, and staying up all night partying with her newborn Hannah – usually while overdosing on coffee.
