Unless this is your first time here, you know I’m a busy mom. You see it in my Facebook statuses, Tweets, & frequently here on the blog as, well, the whole theme of Raising Sticky Hands To Heaven is about making time for God in the midst of being a busy mom.
So it comes as no surprise that I’m excited to share my review of this book with you all today. Putting On the Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions for Busy Moms, just released this week, is one of my most favorite devotional books yet.
Author Katie Hornor of Paradise Praises put together this study for moms like you and me. The mothers who have little time to catch a breath, let alone find time to spend in the Word. For the moms whose time is valuable and cannot be wasted by reading something that isn’t just right. The ones who sometimes have to read quickly while in the doctor’s waiting room, a few minutes before the family wakes, or maybe even in the bathroom with the door locked. She knew what we needed, because she is a busy mom herself. Most of all, she let the Lord speak through her and that is what makes this book so amazing.
Each day’s reading takes about 10 minutes, just as the title says. Along with the workbook that is available for free to download, you will realize what the Bible says about the Fruits of The Spirit mentioned in Galatians while doing some soul searching. While going through Putting On the Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions for Busy Moms I had so many “Aha!” moments that I did not anticipate. Without being preachy, Katie teaches us how to put on the whole spirit in our day to day lives by being down to earth and speaking the truth. I couldn’t wait to read each day and even found myself crying tears of joy some of those days. Quick, meaty, encouraging, and a blessing. Exactly what I needed!
This week only Putting On the Spirit: Ten-minute Devotions for Busy Moms is available for 99 cents! The book’s forward is by Heidi St. John and is also available in Spanish. I can’t recommend it enough! I even plan to go through it again each time my children study the fruits of the spirit in homeschool. It’s that good!
As you all know by many of my posts, Facebook statuses, tweets, and the theme of this blog, I am a very VERY busy mom. I know all of you are too. It makes finding alone time with Jesus a challenge most days, doesn’t it? I have realized that I have become “picky” and “choosy” about what I spend my time reading because of my time with God being so hard to come by. Have you as well? You don’t want to spend time reading a study or devotional that is watered down or sleep inducing, but something meaty and nourishing that makes your time worth while and leaves you feeling fed?
The last few weeks I have been reading an amazing devotional book for busy moms.
