Recommends it for: Moms
This was my "bathroom reading" for the past year. :) LOL
The chapters are short and so I could get one in once in awhile. There are a lot of encouraging reminders as well as many challenging parts to this book - about relying on God and letting Him work through us as moms. I definately would recommend this book.

Using personal experiences and biblical supports, this book continually brings moms back to the truth of Christ. Chapters are short, perfectly sized for busy moms. It's a great devotional. Highly recommended.

I read this after having Lucas. It was uplifting, encouraging, and refreshing. Very short chapters and something you could use anytime during motherhood to keep your eye on the ball. :)

A great, quick devotional for the busy woman and mom. She pulls from real-life events to make her stories relatable. Very uplifting and encouraging for when you're having "one of those days".

“Simply put, we can be prideful if we revere our body or loathe it. Pride is preoccupation with self. Instead, we ought to view our bodies realistically. Our body houses our soul. Our body reflects our character. With our body, we hug a crying child, listen to an exasperated friend, and hold our husband’s hand. Our bodies are fearfully and wonderfully made—to experience pain, joy, loss, laughter, and anger. God’s desire for us is to honor him with every part of us—including our body.” 1 likes
