Pressing Pause

Pressing Pause
100 Quiet Moments for Moms to Meet Jesus
Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk
Life as a mom can get crazy, with never-ending lists of things to do. When the kids are fighting, the laundry is piling up, and the next meal is waiting to be prepared the typical mother rarely has time for a moment with Jesus. Both authors, as mothers, know the stress of being a mother. So they've designed this devotional just for mothers who need to take a moment to regroup and reconnect. Each day begins with a Bible verse, has a brief thought, and then a prayer that all ties together. At the end is one or two questions about the thought and some space for writing. The authors kept the mother's lack of time into account so the devotionals are short, but packed with food for thought.

I loved the cover on this book. It's beautiful, but calming. The design is simplistic, but pretty. Each devotional was well thought out and concise. The book has a ribbon to use for a bookmark. I loved this since the book is designed for busy moms who might lose a bookmark or grab random items to shove in its place. This would make a wonderful gift for that special mom or friend in your life.

I received this book free of charge from Harper Collins in exchange for my honest review.
