Most everyone who knows me, knows that I have problems finding devotionals that I actually enjoy. I have bought countless devotional books, and given most of them away because I just couldn't relate to them. Well, a few months back, I was given the opportunity to review Megan Breedlove's book "Manna for Moms". It sounded absolutely wonderful, but I must admit that I some how missed that it was a devotional, and I literally groaned when I realized it. However, I was in for a great surprise!
Megan Breedlove did a fantastic job relating everyday mom moments to Biblical truths. She took normal (and not so normal) happenings from her life as a mom with small children and showed how God is there in every hilarious, exhausting, heartwarming mommy moment. How He provides for our hair-raising, miracle-filled mothering adventure. While reading this book, Megan shared her laughter and tears with me as if I were right there with her, because in all honesty, the events could have taken place right here in my own home (and some of them have).
I have never before recommended a devotional book for moms, but I would go so far as to say that every mom with small children should have this book. It truly is manna for moms, and such a blessing to have. The only thing I wished was different was that it listed the lessons that were learned with each devotion somewhere in the book. These devotionals are so helpful, I would love to be able to look at an index or something and find one that helped me with the problem or situation at hand.
