40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood by Sarah Humphrey

40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood

by Sarah Humphrey   

Abingdon Press

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!

Here's my review of this engaging devotional:

First, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Sarah Humphrey and her publisher for sending me a copy of "40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

'40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood' by Sarah Humphrey is a beautiful devotional coloring book.  Relax.  Unwind.  De-stress.  Spend time with God.  Worship.  Color.  Coloring has been a relaxing way for me to spend time since I was a child.  I remember my Mom coloring with me when I was little.  Who knew she was de-stressing back then.

The devotions in this book are sweet and the accompanying doodle pages can be fun to color and add your own personal touches.  And they bring the devotional message home.
