A Sugary Frosting reveals a side of being a Preacher’s Kid, a public role that is rife with challenges of supporting your minister father and your minister’s-wife mother and of becoming yourself. Herein are relationships portrayed honestly and sometimes not flatteringly. A Sugary Frosting, a phrase derived from Martha Blowen’s journals, is a memoir of surviving religious idealism and inherited belief.




An honest memoir of the demands of growing up in parsonage where the children had to model the ideal Christian family and “what will people in the church think” was an important inhibitor of conduct. The authors write about a life that is gone by, a time when women wore gloves to church and when school bullying was “the way things are.”

Bonus: Inside A Sugary Frosting, you will find a bonus link to photos from Martha’s family and her early life, and recordings of her amazing singing voice.
