A parent's life is never dull and often downright droll but in the middle of the tantrums, squabbles, and boo-boos, it's sometimes hard to see the hilarity. Life's Alphabet Soup is the perfect antidote for any tired, stressed-out parent. with six kids of her own, Terri Ferran knows what raising a family is really like: incredibly hard, completely thankless, and so worth it. There are plenty of books that'll tell you what you're doing wrong as a parent, but how about one that knows what it's really like to spend a sleepless night with a sick child? (Even though the sickness was mostly brought on by letting her eat too many cookies.) Full of stories all parents can relate to, this book is sure to keep you laughing from a to Zoomph.

About the author (2010)

Terri Ferran grew up in a small Colorado town that offered little in the way of entertainment. She escaped through reading (and later on a Continental Trailways bus), and although the town didn't have a library, she eagerly anticipated the coming of the Bookmobile and would check out stacks of books at a time.

She moved to Utah as a high school senior where she joined the LDS Church and met her husband, Tod. Quietly dreaming of becoming a writer, Terri took the secure route and majored in accounting at Utah State University. She is a CPA who spent many years in public accounting and as the CFO of an automotive dealership group.

Terri and her husband are the parents of six children - three boys and three girls. When she's not busy writing or doing mom things, Terri still loves to read, but she can usually be found doing laundry, dishes, running errands, napping, eating chocolate, or exercising (not necessarily in that order).
