Bethany5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent bookJune 6, 2019BethanyWow what an excellent read! I will be recommending this to my Mom friends. It has really made me think about distractions in my own life.
There is much to like about this book. I like that the chapters are quick reads. Each one is about 4-5 pages which make it convenient to read in one setting. It is divided into ten parts each with four chapters each. The parts end with an overview of things to remember. I was able to read through it fairly quickly.
We all have distractions in our lives. This book addresses those distractions and how to handle them. It is practical and easy to read. Moms will be able to relate to the stories and feelings shared in the pages of this excellent book. I appreciate the authors don't claim to be experts on getting rid of distractions and having this mastered in their own lives. They said this book is for them too.
Here are a couple of my favorite quotes:
"But too often our goals become our gods, and their distraction becomes our way of life."
"Sadly, sometimes we've been at this comparison game for so long that we're no longer sure what we personally like or feel or want."
I received a copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review. Thank you.

If you're looking for a book that is relatable, encouraging, and challenging...look no further! I personally know the authors and it has been my utmost pleasure to read their hearts. They don't act like they have it all together or are perfect. They're honest and heartfelt and compassionate. This is a wonderful book to do as a group study, or on your own!

BevW5 Stars Out Of 5So Many Distractions! Who's Getting Our Attention?April 16, 2019BevWQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5My new favorite book!! I am so glad and thankful that I was able to read this! I was crying within the first few pages of the book, it really caught my heart! There were other parts that I laughed, but overall so many pages that I related to! Amanda and Anne-Renee co-wrote this book and it flowed so well that it really could have been seen as one person writing. They focus on the distractions we as mothers face and we know there are so many! The focus is to get back to God, get back to the Scriptures, and be captivated by the things that really matter. I would definitely read this book again and pass it on!
I received an early copy of this book from the publisher to review.
