This is a great daily devotional for moms It has a devotion for each day and a place to journal about the readings I found it helpful and encouraging.
Powerful devotional for moms Karen Ehman, author, and Ruth Schwenk, pastors wife, split the book up with their own daily devotions for 100 days A Bible verse, discussion of times in their family life that relate to the verse, a prayer and heartfelt questions to answer I really enjoyed this and plan to go back and read all that I highlighted Would certainly recommend this to all the mothers out there.
Authors Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk take turns writing short devotionals to guide the reader through 100 days of taking some time to sit and ponder Scripture and how it relates directly to life The authors share personal stories that allow the reader to relate to them and provide questions at the end of each daily devotional to help the reader dive deeper into a relationship with Christ.
Fabulous book Will use in future as a daily devotional
