Publisher's Description

Every new mom experiences a myriad of emotions—joy, love, the frightening, yet terrific reality that you are now responsible for a tiny little dependent. And in the midst of all these emotions—and burpings, feedings, diaper changes, and quick naps—moms need to be reminded of God’s awesomeness. In this gift-like book, new mom and best-selling author Sarah Arthur writes about how delivering her son three weeks early reminds her of God’s timing, how her trip home from the hospital with her newborn son tucked away in his car seat points to God being in control even when she is fearful, and how a mom’s concern over friendly strangers touching her young child in the grocery store also reminds her that people are sent to help. In a fresh and contemplative style, Arthur sits alongside Mom and helps her understand that God is in control . . . even when her life feels drastically out of control. This devotional will be a great companion for Mom during the small amount of time she gets to sit and be still and think of the truths of God’s word, while relating it to her new favorite subject—her baby.

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I'm a write-at-home mom with a preschooler underfoot, a busy pastor-husband, and a bun in the oven, which means this book is something of a miracle. But writing is in my blood, in my bones. It’s one of the ways I connect with God. After working in youth ministry for seven years, I began publishing with the bestseller "Walking with Frodo" (Tyndale) and have since published numerous devotionals, including "The One Year Coffee with God." This book, "Mommy Time," follows in that vein: part memoir, part spiritual reflection. When I'm not blogging at saraharthur.com, you can find me volunteering with youth at Sycamore Creek Church in Lansing, MI, where my husband ,Tom, is pastor.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  As a new mom I felt totally overwhelmed bringing a human being into our lives, not to mention all my bodily changes and the relentlessness of care-giving. Yes, there are lots of joys! But motherhood is hard. I thought it was important to be honest about that—so often Christians are tempted to sugar-coat our experience and cover it up with sentimentality. I wanted to open up a space for other moms to acknowledge their experience and say, “God is okay with the fact that I’m having a hard time. And God is here.”

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  One of the best ways I’ve found to stay balanced during the crazy transition of motherhood has been to talk with other moms. And that’s what I hope this book is: a conversation, a story, one new mom sharing with other new moms what God is doing in her life. In that sense it’s less a devotional book than a memoir, or maybe a devotional memoir, tracking my spiritual reflections during the first three months of my son’s life. I know other moms have similar stories to share!

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  It was my husband who began praying for my son’s body while giving him a bottle—since there isn’t much else to do besides sit there. He prays for Micah’s little feet, that he will stand strong in the Lord; for his legs, that he will walk with Jesus all his days; for his stomach, that he will “feed” on God’s Word; etc., all the way up. I learned through writing this book that rather than texting or talking on the phone or checking Facebook, we can take those parenting moments and turn our thoughts toward God.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I'm kind of a geek, so most of my influences are literary: C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Jane Austen, etc. But I'm also a huge fan of Christian music artist Sara Groves, whose song "Generations" inspired one of the devotions in this book. Contemporary author and poet Kathleen Norris inspired yet another devotion, perhaps my favorite one (and the most difficult to write), "The Long Goodbye." Of course the book itself is dedicated to my own mom, Peg Faulman, who is a wonderful mentor and grandmother (love you!).

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  To new moms: you are not alone. Lots of moms, including me, fall into the trap of presenting ourselves as totally together—which just perpetuates that feeling of isolation, like you’re the only one flunking motherhood. But we are all there, sister. I’m sitting here at my laptop unshowered, no idea what to make for dinner tonight, checking my phone fifty-seven times a minute to make sure Micah’s daycare isn’t texting me about some crisis. So we’re in this together. And meanwhile we have a God who holds us and our children in the palm of his hand, and who isn’t particularly concerned that the same load of laundry has been in the washer for three days. We rest in grace.
