#61: Real Mom's Devotions To Go

Most devotional books for moms focus on the sweet, touching aspects of motherhood. Real Moms’ Devotions to Go is for the harried, tired mom who is long on love, but short on time. 

It gives the reader real-life stories that she can easily identify with and the added benefit of concrete, stress reduction techniques that she can quickly learn and use. 

Real Moms’ Devotions to Go not only entertains, but nourishes as well. It has a down-to-earth, realistic approach of the devotions and the mental health aspect of the stress management portion of the book.

Review:
It's no secret that I love reading devotionals. To take a moment with God each day always leaves me feeling better inside. 
What this book teaches you is not only to talk with God, but to take time to mother yourself too. As mothers, we often neglect ourselves to put our families first, that will never change, but what mom's need to do is take a few minutes each day for themselves too. Take a bath, go for a walk around the block, read a book for a few minutes, whatever it is doesn't matter as long as it is what you want to do for you. You will feel better and be better for your family.

  1. Well I have not read it but I did a post not too long ago as a grandma mentioning working on embroidery with my grand, and if I had to thread her needle or untangle her thread one more time I was going to scream, but it was a SILENT scream, lol....Point is whatever devotional you read if they tend to make you feel as if you should be angelic and abnormal all of them time don't buy another one like that. This one sounds good since it seems to focus on reality or real feelings :)

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
