Moving, funny devotions crafted for every day by moms who know the drill

When women take on the role of mom, they take on a hundred other titles as well: healer, comforter, chef, teacher, cheerleader--and less flattering jobs such as disciplinarian, ruiner of fun times, and chief worrier. In the middle of juggling all those roles, finding room to spend time alone seeking Go

Thank you, Michelle and Bethany, for capturing every feeling I've ever had as a mom! With a different "hat" or moniker for each week's devotion, this book really does cover it all! I most likely won't read the book in order, because the titles of each chapter are so great that I can glance at the list and think, "Oh, that is SO me today!" In the "They call me memory maker" chapter, in about the middle of the book, I felt so affirmed with the authors' words: "usually the small ways we make our ba ...more

They Call Me Mom is a beautiful devotional for moms. Michelle and Bethany have captured the identity and calling of motherhood in this little devotional. This book covers every topic and season of motherhood. The titles of these devotionals are great and allow each woman to identify with the readings.
While I am not a mother yet, I certainly am able to see my mother through the lens of this devotional. I am so thankful and grateful for this devotional for it has given me an even greater apprecia

All moms will find encouragement, strength, and inspiration as they read the stories, prayers and bible verses selected for this beautifully written devotional. The stories are honest, which means sometimes not-so-pretty, but always shared with love, humor and supported with prayer and wrapped in God's word. Some pages made me nod my head in a 'been there done, survived that' way, and other pages challenged me to move past my mistakes in into a place of strength to continue being the mom God cre ...more

Beautiful, heartfelt and inspirational devotional. The word "Mom" can be used for many different women. From having biological children to adopting children to being a loving "substitute" Mom to children in the neighborhood and more, there are many ways to be "Mom". While reading this book, I laughed out loud at times and other times I cried, recalling my own special "Mom" moments. This is a great book to give as a gift. I received a complimentary copy of the book. No review was required. ...more

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with my first child. It was exciting and terrifying at the same time. I now had the honor of bringing a child into the world who would depend on me for everything. When I saw this devotional, I couldn’t wait to see what encouraging words were in the book. It has been almost twenty years since I had my last child but I will always be a mom and still stumble through saying the right words to them.

I loved at the beginning of the book when this was said, “G
