Synopsis According to Goodreads: Being a mom usually means being busy. Really busy. Whether you’re zipping from your children’s piano lessons to their next ballgame or nursing a baby while comforting a toddler, life is brimming with activities. Yet one encounter can help shape every moment: time in the Word with Jesus. In Walking with God in the Season of Motherhood, you’ll learn how to nourish your own heart, mind, and soul with the wisdom you need to become the mother you long to be.

My thoughts: As a busy mom, it can often be extremely difficult to find time alone with God. This book really helped me do that. This devotional is comprised of 11 weeks of studies with 5 days of lessons per week. The lessons are interactive in that there are questions that have blank spaces below for the reader to answer. One of my favorite things about the setup of this book is that all of the Bible verses are written out in each lesson. This is a nice time saver. The back of the book has some nice features including 12 important verses or moms to memorize and 12 topical verses for children (some of the topics include joyfulness, obedience, and faith). There is also a study guide at the end to use in small groups or for more personal reflection.
As far as the lessons go, I found them to be very beneficial and helpful to spiritual growth. The writing style is very easy to follow and the author seems very relatable. I have had many moments in my life as a mother when I felt like I was alone in this journey. This book helped me to remember that I’m not alone and that being a mother is one of the most important roles in life.
My Rating: 5/5 stars. I would definitely recommend this book to any weary mom out there who longs to grow closer to God.
I received this book from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review.
