'The Struggle Bus: The Van. The Myth. The Legend.' is designed to take you, dear reader, on a ride with the Wood family in the van that became an Internet sensation.

This one-of-a-kind literary adventure you are about to embark on is about more than a viral van. It’s about managing the wonderful chaos of a family of 11. It’s about parenting. It’s about marriage. It’s about success. It’s about failure. It’s about faith. It’s about fun. It’s about a van becoming a metaphor for life as it is given a fun-filled beatdown for the ages. As you roll along with the Wood family, you just might feel driven to:

•  connect a little more with the God who made you.

•  give yourself a little more grace when you fail.

•  smile and laugh a little more—both at the Wood family’s expense and your own.

Hop in, buckle up, hold your nose, laugh, and join the Wood family to explore one of life’s fundamental truths: the struggle is real.


My favorite aspect of this book was the wit and humor Josh Wood used. He took a book about a serious subject and made it wholly relatable and fun to read about. 

Sometimes we need to take a step back laugh at our struggles, see the good in some of the bad, etc. 

It's great to understand that at times the majority of us are having our own problems and just trying to make it through. We need to rely on our faith to help us in those moments and understand we are not alone. 

I loved Wood's outlook and how he navigated this subject. I found it so very helpful and inspiring!
