At times, a mother's life can be anything but inspiring - 2 a.m. feedings, loneliness, no vacation days, sibling rivalries. Even the best intentions of raising God-fearing, obedient, happy kids can fall flat in the midst of her chaos. Elisabeth K. Corcoran takes an honest look at a mother's world and offers practical advice on common experiences including: being content in every circumstance, modeling God-like characteristics, overcoming cabin fever, making and keeping friends, and being the "real" you. Humor, encouragement, and the truths of God's Word are woven through these brief stories to give encouragement to other moms.
More than thirty engaging devotions full of humor, encouragement, and meditations on God's Word. An honest look at a mother's world and practical advice on common experiences.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a stay-at-home wife and mom. I've been married for 7 years to Kevin and have a 4-year- old daughter, Sara, and a two-year-old son, Jack. I also serve in leadership with the Women's Ministries at Blackberry Creek Church in Aurora.
What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted every mom to know that what she was feeling was normal no one ever told me that motherhood would be this exhilarating, this tiring, this scary, this joy-filled, this frustrating, this boring, this awe-inspiring all at the same time. And I wanted every mom out there to know that God is loving her through this time and He wants to help each one of us be our best for our children, our husbands, our friends and for Him.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? My desire is that each mom, woman or even dad who reads this will realize that God loves them completely and He shows us in amazing ways each day. And that when we're at our lowest - our most impatient, or our most tired - we know we have God as our Strength to lean on.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I read almost everything that I can get my hands on - so I really haven't narrowed down a favorite author.
