Did you know that we are works of art?
It is by grace you have been saved through faith--and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God--not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. -Ephesians 2:8-10
We are HIS masterpiece...HIS handiwork. The word in Greek is where we get the word poem. (I love that!) The master Artist himself has crafted each one of us in unique ways and is writing a poem or a story with our lives. He has made us into something special. But how many days do we forget the Artist? So many times we can miss what He has for us, the work He is doing in us, and the story He wants to write with our lives because we don't take the time to Press Pause. To learn from Him. To grow. To be encouraged. To draw from His power and strength.
When we spend time with Jesus it changes us.
We ALL need that time to refresh ourselves so the best of who we are can pour out to those who matter most to us.
Pressing Pause offers a break from the busy and rest from the rush. These 100 encouraging devotions for moms will help you begin each day with scripture, drawing on God's power, ingesting His Word, and learning practical ways to love and serve more like His son.
And I don't know about you, but I NEED that time alone with Him and no matter how hard it is at times to take a break, it is always 100% worth it.

To continue our celebration of the release of Pressing Pause this week we're giving away a beautiful custom crafted Press Pause bracelet to SIX WINNERS! Seriously this dangle bracelet (or whatever you call them ;)) is amazing! I even emailed and begged for them to send me one to keep...thats how much I love it!
This beautiful metal jewelry from Fashion & Compassion is made in a poor rural village deep in the heart of Mexico, where families remain intact because of work available through a local metal workshop.
Most of us moms long to find a bit of calm in the chaos and we know many other moms who feel the same way. We all need the reminder to Press Pause.
