About the book: 

40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood: Devotions and Coloring Book to Nourish Mom (Abingdon Press, August 2016)

Nourishment for a mother's soul through 40 days of devotion and . . . doodling!

Wouldn't it be marvelous if mothering came with a concrete set of instructions---an easy recipe we could follow? Instead, motherhood challenges women to find their faith, their true selves, and their family through daily doses of trial and error. It is a brilliant and healing time of life that is full of joy, pain, and beauty with a small side of crisis (and humor). What mothers do not know, they learn. And through this lifelong process of learning, they nurture and care for the most precious gifts on earth: children. In a modern society where moms often have a full and busy plate, these 10 minute daily devotions focus on six key topics of motherhood:

-Self-acceptance
-Self-care
-Reconciling with grief, hope and expectations
-Generosity
-Presence
-Forgiveness
In addition to the devotions, these beautiful pages are adorned with handmade illustrations to help you refresh from long days or even occasional sleepless nights. So, grab your colors and a little quiet time for yourself while doodling at the kitchen table. You will be grateful you did!

My Review:

I received this book to review from Litfuse! I've been waiting for a reason to purchase colored pencils, and with this coloring book, I found that reason! I have been doing motherhood for 25 yrs with four children. 40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood is a lovely way to take a few minutes for yourself in the early days of being a new mommy or even if you're done with your day having run your kids here there an everywhere.


I liked that there were a mix of pages to color in the designs, others that were more outlining, and a few that we could fill in ourselves. There are 40 days of devotions, but there are also spots where the author speaks to us mom to mom. Don't we all need that some times? Another mom to tell us it's ok to be where we're at. To know someone empathizes with us?


I can't even tell you how relaxing it was to be able to sit and read a small devotion, to take some time to color. For me it was a nice way to end my day!
