Synopsis of the book:
Do you feel like you’re drowning in the everyday stress-pool?
Wish you could make busyness a business so you’d be a millionaire?
Welcome to the maternal order of slightly sagging sisters of the ‘hood. The motherhood.
In her beloved mom-to-mom, grin-provoking style, award-winning author Debora Coty offers empathy, laughs, real-life stories, practical parenting survival tips, and fresh biblical insights to help frazzled moms of all ages hear Papa God’s still, small voice through life’s chaos.
Clever, fun to read, and oh, so true. I enjoyed each of these devotionals. They made me laugh and nod in appreciation. Most of all, the entire book was encouraging. I think many moms feel like they are spinning their wheels and getting nowhere. Added to that is the feeling that they are alone in that journey. This author reminds us, in entertaining and truthful ways, that we are not alone. Other moms experience the same trials and fears. More importantly, that God (Papa God as she refers to Him) is right there with us.
This devotional sheds light on the struggles of motherhood, but it also gives practical ways to fix things or make ourselves better.
“Listen, girlfriend, Jesus — who knows a thing or two about love sacrifices — sees all your sacrifices, small and large. He sees. He knows. And He’s incredibly proud of you. You might not think you’re much, but He thinks you’re to die for.” –Too Blessed to Be Stressed for Moms (Page 171)
This book is hardcover and just the right size to tuck into a tote bag for enjoying on the run. It also has a nice little attached bookmark to put in places of favorite pages.
