You're busy and tired and craving peace - and you're not alone. Whether you're a stay-at-home mom who has a list of 17 errands to do between dropping the kids off and picking them up or the working mom whose day job is just as tough as your mom job or the brand-new mama who is experiencing the pain and joy of motherhood for the very first time, Pressing Pause: 100 Quiet Moments for Moms to Meet with Jesus is for you.
These 100 devotions for moms focus on moving from just making it through to making a real difference and not losing yourself along the way. In order to have this seismic shift in perspective, a mom needs to drink deeply from the well of God's word each day, filling her spiritual reservoir enough to then pour out into the lives of her husband, children, and others with whom her life naturally intersects. This can be done only with regular times spent alone with God, drawing on his power, ingesting his word, and learning to love and serve more like his Son.
Sound like a tall order? A time commitment you just can't handle? These simple, accessible devotions offer you brief moments of respite in your busy days, taking just enough time to center your heart and mind on what God has for you as his beloved daughter. Press "pause" on the chaos, and find your rest.
