Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Mothers -- Giveaway (3 Winners)

I’m excited to tell you that I have a brand-new book out! It’s called Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Mothers. Each of the 101 devotions in this book contains a Bible verse, a prayer, and a true story that shows God’s presence during a parenting moment. These stories celebrate all the seasons of motherhood, from pregnancy and the early years to the trials of adolescence and the resulting empty nest. Whatever season you may be in, you’ll find that each story and accompanying Bible verse has a lesson to teach. And the common thread through it all is the knowledge that God is present in every season of motherhood, whether it turns out to be stormy or filled with sunshine.

There are several ways in which you can read Chicken Soup for the Soul: Devotional Stories for Mothers:

Start at the beginning! Spend a little time with God each day by starting at the beginning of the book and reading a page each day for inspiration.

Pray for guidance. Holding the book closed, pray for God to guide you to just the right devotional that you need to read that day. Randomly open the book and see where the Spirit leads!

Select a topic. If you’re dealing with a particular problem, scroll through the table of contents and turn to the appropriate chapter. Select a devotional that applies to your situation.

This book also contains an insightful and personal foreword from actress, speaker and author, Lisa Whelchel. She's the author of the bestselling books, Creative Correction and Friendship for Grown-Ups, and is well-known for playing the character "Blair" on the long-running TV series, The Facts of Life.

Being a mom is one of the most challenging -- and yet rewarding -- jobs a woman can have. With God on your parenting team, the burdens are lighter and the rewards are sweeter. The words of wisdom from the women in this book will warm your heart and show you that God is your partner through every season of motherhood.
