Review:
This autobiographical account of Kuykendall's life was an interesting read. She looks back over her life as a child of an American single parent with her absent father a Catalonian artist living in Europe.

Kuykendall unpacks her life's struggles and journey as a Christian whilst recounting her life story culminating in advocating her response to being a mother of four and coping with them in their pre-school years. She explores her three life-defining questions - Is she lovable? Is she loved? And is she loving? And explains how God used himself, her husband, her children and her support group to help her discover these answers through childhood, marriage and motherhood.

As an autobiography I found it stimulating and challenging wondering if I would do things differently. A good read which demonstrates forgiveness, grace, faith and belonging. A good book for a reading group. Kuykendall has also included some questions for reflection at the end to provoke conversation or self study.
