Majoring in Motherhood will have you laughing and crying in the same chapter, as Emily relates her motherhood experiences.

Motherhood can be one of the loneliest, hardest jobs in the world, but Emily reminds you that you are doing a holy, God-honoring work. This is a great read for moms of any season, but I can’t wait to give it to new, expectant moms to read during those middle of the night feedings when moments of encouragement and laughter are hard to find.”
— Jenny Worsham, Co-founder of Gather Moms

“Emily did an excellent job of communicating the hilarious, hard, beautiful, sanctifying, and relatable facets of motherhood while continually pointing back to the gospel. The reminders of God’s sovereignty, faithfulness, sustenance, and grace are both convicting and encouraging in ways that pushed me toward Christlikeness in motherhood. This book ministered to me in more ways than I can count!

Majoring in Motherhood is an invitation to belonging for all mothers, reminding us we are not alone.

These parable-esque stories will strengthen those who are in the middle of the Hardest, Messiest, Most Glorious Job in the World.”

Spunky, hilarious, and oh-so-real. Schuch had me laughing ‘til I cried. With wisdom and wit, she created the world’s first degree taught in a way that makes you feel like you’re having coffee with a friend. That’s my kind of major! Now, I finally know what I want to be when I grow up: a mom doing life alongside Jesus and ladies like Emily Schuch.”
— Kelsey Gillespy, author of In the Trenches: Finding God Through Parenting Littles

In Majoring in Motherhood, Emily explores the love of God from within the actual trenches of motherhood. Her stories showcase the realities of mothering — from those first gummy newborn smiles to the perils of toddler toothbrushing — with the humor of someone who gets it. And her insights into the truth of the Gospel will leave you encouraged. This book feels like having coffee with a friend who is also rocking a mom bun and who wants to help you discover Biblical truth hidden in the most ordinary moments of your day. I’ll be recommending this crash course for years to come!
— Elizabeth Berget, mom, blogger, editor

When I served as an Acquisitions Editor for Cruciform Press, this book was my favorite of the hundreds of manuscripts I evaluated. It’s a unique mix of practicality, theology, and humor. It’s both a pity-inducing anatomization and a hope-filled antidote for what I call the “Momapocalypse” (the ordeal of raising multiple small children). I’ll be giving copies to my seven children, to help them endure or prepare for their own parenting journeys. I’ll be giving a copy to my wife, to help her cope when she has thoughts like, “Was it all worth it?” And I’ll be keeping a copy for myself, for times when I need a good laugh and a “shot in the arm” of encouragement and thankfulness.
