Publisher's Description

This devotional-like storybook uses lighthearted, relevant stories as the catalyst for busy moms to lighten their loads—which are often the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual battles moms face when trying to balance family and spiritual needs. Readers will find an inspiring and relevant story, a pick-me-up message that brings to light the spiritual significance of the story, and suggestions on how they, as busy moms, can teach this same spiritual lesson to the little ones in their care. In addition, the authors have provided practical tips as well as creative parenting ideas.

    Have only a few minutes to spare? Want to have devotions but are busy with a newborn baby? This collection of 77 short stories is perfect for you. Each story is relevant to issues Mothers face in their every day life.

    One story titled Caught in the Middle will help any Mother with more then one child better handle the next inevitable argument. The story title Prayer Chair will remind you that daily prayer time with the Lord is important.

    The authors have followed each story with a section titled "Message for Mommy." This section starts with a verse that is in keeping with the story. They follow with a brief explanation of the verse and how it can be helpful for any Mother. They go even further in encouraging Mothers by giving a tip on helping children with the same principle.

    This is a great book for any busy Mom who needs a quick "pick-me-up" from the Lord!

    A must for every mother you know. What a pleasure for them to touch the heart of God in a brief moment per day! I love re-reading the "Creative Parenting" segments. I wish someone had provided these ideas for me when my children were small. No matter what the children's ages, this book will help nudge them toward ethical, godly adulthood!
