My First Book: ONE THING: Top Tip From a Mom of Six

Oh, y’all, I am SO excited to share with you something I’ve been working on for a long time.

My new book, ONE THING: Top Tip From a Mom of 6, is the most important piece of motherhood advice I’ve got. It’s just as relevant for the seasoned mom as it is for the newly pregnant or adoptive mother.

Here’s the blurb from the back cover:

“With six kids eleven and under, Jess Connell wants to share with you her top tip for motherhood. Grocery lines, the internet, baby showers, and bookstores are full of parenting advice, but this small book is different. It’s the fleshing out of one basic idea– ONE THING– to help you evaluate all the rest. Biblical, practical, and unlike what you’ll find elsewhere, this will give you wisdom and peace of mind as a mom. Before you read other parenting books, you’ll want to read this encouraging little book that will change your perspective in big ways.” 

One Thing by Jess Connell


You can click here to purchase One Thing on Kindle, at Amazon.

Here are some of the Amazon reviews for the book:

  • ” This is my all-time favorite parenting book that I’ve ever read! …I highly recommend this book to any parent, but especially to a busy (sleep-deprived) new parent. It’ll be the easiest thing to read and the most helpful too. It puts into perspective every other parenting book, and every tidbit of advice, whether welcomed or not, you’ll come across.” ~Crystal B.
  • “…the whole time I was reading, I just kept thinking that I wished someone had told me all of this before our oldest was born. I am now armed with tools to share in the future with new moms.” ~Jess Little
  • This quick read is especially helpful to those who feel overwhelmed by all the conflicting parenting advice out there.” ~Eric and Allison
  • Must-Read for New Moms — This book is phenomenal. It is a quick read, which is wonderful for busy moms, and the advice is sound. I wish I would have read this before my baby was born, and I’m so thankful I found it now.” ~Susanna L. Regime


Can I ask for your help? Would you please take a moment and pass this to as many new mom friends, moms with little ones, and gal pals that you know? I want to get this little book in the hands of as many women as I can. Thank you!

And once you’ve had a chance to read it, leave an honest review on Amazon. I’m eager to hear your thoughts!

    I had to chuckle, in a positive way, when I read your e-book (I, who am also a mother of six). My husband and I have had many opportunities to encourage and challenge young families. We base the principles on God’s Word and have used your same quote when sharing helpful Christian reading material- regarding both parenting and marriage. I think the most exciting for us, as we continue to get to know our Savior more, is how much His Word does address parenting and how much I missed gathering from His Letter to us, when I first was a mother (even though I was in it daily). His Word is complete! The other helpful tool has been by observation and then asking mothers of whom I respected and saw the results of their labors- which you addressed as well. Our world is so fast paced that I think we miss so much by being so busy and not taking the time to learn from those who are ahead of us. God bless you, my dear! We look forward to having you and your precious family over during your visit to WCC.
