The Secret Life of Becky Miller

"Faster than a speeding minivan, able to leap piles of laundry in a single bound, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s ... Supermom!"

We all know one of those types of mothers, right? The soccer mom who also volunteers for church, school and the local Rotary. Who always make perfectly healthy meals, her house is immaculate and her children are model students and role models. Well, maybe not, but this "Supermom" persona seems to be the one so many moms aspire to be - the one Becky Miller aspires to be.

Becky Miller’s main goal is to do great things for God and she has all her plans in place to achieve that goal. When life happens and her plans seem to fall apart will she turn to the One who has other plans for her?

New author, Sharon Hinck, bursts onto the Christian fiction scene with a humorous yet poignant story of a mother who tries to do it all for God. She is able to take the seemingly mundane tasks motherhood requires and make them interesting and important.

The story is a fun and fast read for mothers and future mothers and even non-moms of all ages. (It wouldn’t hurt the husbands to take a peak either!)
