This is a beautiful hardcover book with thick pages, purple lettering and an attached bookmark. There are 100 devotionals that will take just a few minutes of your busy day. The authors squeeze a lot of goodness into those few minutes.
For me, I take a few minutes every night before I go to sleep to slow down and refresh myself in the Word. This devotional was a great guide to lead me. The authors also include questions at the end of each devotional if you want to spend time reflecting on the day's lesson and scripture.
I recommend this book for all of you busy ladies out there! I know that in the rush of your lives you can tend to be very unselfish and do, do, do for others but you need to "press pause" and stop and do this for your self.

MelissaNorth CarolinaAge: 35-44Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Great devotional for busy moms looking for more time with God!March 23, 2016MelissaNorth CarolinaAge: 35-44Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The younger our babes, the harder it is to not only find the time to read Scripture, but also keep our minds focused enough to hear from God as we are reading. This wonderful new devotional from Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk aims to helps moms reverse this. Pressing Pause: 100 Quiet Moments for Moms to Meet Jesus is ideal for the mom who is trying to regain her footing in spending time alone with God. The short passages are expounded upon alternating between the authors. Real-life examples from each woman's life. At the end of each devotion is a sample prayer and questions to ponder. Finally, there is space to journal your own thoughts after reading.
This is intended to be a way for mom to press pause on their day for just a moment. I think this would have been especially helpful when I was first starting on my mothering journey. Moments with God were hard to create even though it was what my heart desired. I talk to a lot of new moms and I've heard this same thing over and over.
The title for this devotional is so perfect. My girls are apt to say, "Pause the game!" when they are playing pretend and need to do something in real life for a second. The same idea is here. We need to press pause from the tyranny of the ordinary. If it has been a while since you took some time alone with God this is a great place to start.
