Ordinary Mom, Extraordinary God is a devotional aimed at the deeper issues of the heart and one that will provide a soothing respite amid chaos. Think of it as Oswald Chambers meets Busy Housewife.
Writer, speaker, and stayathome mom Mary DeMuth creatively focuses on the gift of motherhood as she considers
- resting quietly in the Lord, even on crazybusy days
- being thankful for the duties as well as the joys of being a mom
- offering God a heart to prune so that it can continue to bear good fruit
Personal stories integrated with scriptural truth and probing prayers will help everyday stayathome moms remain connected to the most amazing and extraordinary Parent of all parents.

Tell us a little about yourself. I'm a stay at home mom of three children, now relocated to Southern France with my church- planting husband. I've been writing for over twelve years, laboring in obscurity most of the time. I love to cook and garden. I am passionate about worshipping Jesus musically. I absolutely love writing and am always working at honing the craft of writing.
What was your motivation behind this project? To create a book that used the avenue of motherhood to help moms see their need for Jesus.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I grew weary of books for women, particularly devotional books, that seemed more fluffy than substantive. I'm an Oswald Chambers fan. I visit him almost daily, gleaning something deep that touches my heart. My desire for this book for moms was to write in such a way that touches the deepest part of a woman's heart--piercing words that change lives.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Oswald, of course, Randy Alcorn, Harper Lee, John Piper, Henry Cloud, Leif Enger, Roy Hession.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I am just an ordinary mom like the rest of you. I fail. I make mistakes. I have regrets. But I am comforted in knowing an extraordinary God lives within me. It's for His renown that I write.
