Book Description

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 seventeen errands to do between dropping the kids off and picking them up, or the working mom who’s 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 Where Moms Can 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 deep 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 only be done 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 a brief moment of respite in your busy day, 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.

My Review:
Where to start... Hmmmm...  I will be honest, I am in LOVE with this 246 page book. Each page is filled with scripture,  short devotional, then at the end of each devotional you will find a prayer then Questions for you to answer in a space below them. Like I said , I am in LOVE with this book, makes you feel closer to GOD , and it only takes about 5-10 Min. of your time if you do just one a day for us busy moms. For example, the first devotional in this book is about Turning Worry into Worship. The scripture is Proverbs 31:25, then devotion, prayer, then the questions at the bottom :
What are your three greatest worries as a mom? 
Take each of those three worries and pen a prayer to God instead. 
This book would make the perfect gift for mom's all over!
Thank you for reading my review, and please feel free to follow me , I have a follow me area to the left . ~ God Bless~
I received this book in exchange for my honest opinion of the material.
