Hi, friend!

Hi friend! I am so glad you have stopped by the site. We have such a wonderful community of moms here and we would LOVE for you to join us as we share life and learn together!

What Every {Worn-Out} Mom Needs

I know as a busy mom it can be so hard to grab a few minutes by yourself to study God's Word every day. It really can be soooo.hard. After a sleepless night or a hectic wake up routine the last thing on our minds is sitting still for a while to read, contemplate and pray. But I want to share something that I have been thinking about a lot lately... When I get to the end of the day and I am worn out, tired and sometimes just plain exhausted, it isn't long before I come to the realization that I am not abiding in the One who gives me the very strength to get through my day. If I would of only taken the time to go to HIM! The Lord provides all I need to accomplish what He has for me.

Friends I know it is hard but I want to encourage you today to take (or make) the moments to spend time with the Lord, to come back to center, to the Rock that helps you hold it all together. Take even just a few minutes at the beginning of your day, in the afternoon or what works with your schedule and spend time abiding in the Lord. As you make this a habit you will find your true REST from resting in Him.

Many women ask...where do I start? I need a good devotional. Something that isn't too long, but is still deep and gets me reading my Bible. Here is a fantastic choice if those statements ring true for you. The Quiet Place by Nancy Leigh DeMoss is a 365 day devotional with daily Scripture readings. You will love Nancy's strong emphasis on God's Word and her sound Biblical teaching. It gives you the time to study the Word, as well as learn and grow as Nancy expands on the scripture and applies the passage to your life.


This particular devotional by Nancy Leigh DeMoss is included in The Christian Living Bundle along with another resource I want to show you. I am so excited to listen to this with my children. It is a great way for your family to learn the Bible through song, which is just plain fun!


Focus on the Family's The Singing Bible includes 50 original sing-along songs. It sets Scripture to music and includes memorable lyrics and tongue twisters, making understanding the Bible an exciting journey. This collection is fast-paced and perfect for use at home or during car trips. Lyrics included. Song titles include “God's Promise,” “Noah Built a Boat,” “The Bible Book is True,” “Joseph's Dream,” “Psalm 23,” “Listen to Wisdom,” “Daniel,” “Elijah,” “Jonah and the Whale,” and many more!


The Quiet Place by Nancy Leigh DeMoss retails for $19.99 and The Singing Bible retails for $25.oo for a total of $44.99.

But for 6 days only you can get The Quiet Place and The Singing Bible, along with over 75 other eBooks, eCourses and audio for only $34.95 (a value of over $1,140)!!!! The Christian Living Bundle is chock full of resources to encourage you in your walk with the Lord (devotionals, christian classics), along with resources for parenting, marriage, personal finance and fun things for the kids!!
