    Author Courtney Ellis has a way of writing that draws you in. She is completely real and transparent in how she implemented these spiritual practices in her own life. With humor and grace she encourages other weary parents to join her in these practices. However, these practices are not just great for weary parents, they are great for anyone with a desire to draw closer to God...male or female, young or old, whether you have a dozen children or no children at all, this books is applicable to all.

    Like good chocolate and fine wine - savor this one!

    Like any good wine or fine chocolate, it's meant to be enjoyed, so start it now and linger a while!

    Ellis maintains her voice and humor, familiar from her first book, "Uncluttered," but shares from a more vulnerable place in "Almost Holy Mama." What a relief when I read the line near the end of Chapter 2: "It was days like these, so back-breakingly exhausting that I could barely pour my own coffee...that I hated this spiritual disciplines experiment." Whether you have kids at home or not (I don't), that exhaustion is familiar, and this book is for all of us.

    For all of us that want to be more holy, but sometimes really don't. For all of us that feel like maybe there just isn't time or space for one more thing. Start here.

    In "Almost Holy Mama," Courtney examines several spiritual disciplines and shares her year long journey of attaching them to the regular, ordinary, daily activities of motherhood. You'll laugh out loud while being challenged, encouraged and inspired to look for God where He's always been "right here, in the mess of traffic and chaos of toddlers, the piles of laundry and the exhausted tears" in our typical, day-to-day life, waiting for us to discover Him and all He has to offer us.

    -Jen Alward, author of Hope and Healing at Home

    Fun and Practical Read

    What a fantastic book! I am only a few chapters in and I can honestly say that I am enjoying this funny and candid read by author Courtney Ellis. Being a mama of three littles, the youngest being seven months and also a Postpartum nurse working nights, it is hard to say I am not either tired or busy every moment of the day. This book has provided both practical and enjoyable ways to find God in this crazy and sometimes chaotic journey we call motherhood. I strongly recommend this book to any parent who is searching for a deeper way to connect to their Heavenly Father while navigating the late-night feedings, mountains of dishes, stepped on Legos, and piles of mismatched socks. Ellis is sincere and genuine in her storytelling while integrating "life-giving spiritual practices", which makes this book an incredible find!

    An honest, winsome and authentic invitation to life-giving disciplines
    June 3, 2019

    This book was just the breath of fresh air my soul needed. Even though I am far beyond the parenting stages Courtney finds herself in, the principles and practices she teaches in this book are still just as necessary and applicable to my life. Courtney doesn't load us up with a list of "should's". Her authenticity is inviting, and her winsome honesty gives us permission to fail. At the same time, she invites us into life-giving practices that transform our hearts and re-align them with our Father's heart. I serve in leadership on a missionary team with a lot of young families. Many of our young moms struggle to raise thriving children in a culture foreign to them, while serving alongside their husbands in ministry. These practical suggestions are possible, do-able, and transformational! We all need to be reminded of the grace that is ours, even on the hard and challenging days when we feel like we have failed. Courtney doesn't give easy answers, rather, she offers us what Jesus gave to her when she sought the Giver, not the gift...blessed truth. I will definitely be recommending this book not only to the young moms I am mentoring, but to "allthepeople"!
