Encouragement for a Mom's Weary Soul
“A wonderful encouragement. . . . [Calm in My Chaos] takes the Word and weaves it through the experiences of a mother’s day. A wonderful book.”
—Carol Jo Brazo
author of No Ordinary Home
At times, a mother’s life can be anything but inspiring—2 am feedings, loneliness, no vacation days, sibling rivalries. Even the best intentions of raising God-fearing, obedient, happy kids can spiral downward in the midst of her chaos.
Calm in My Chaos takes an honest look at a mother’s world and offers practical advice on common experiences including:
Being content in every circumstance
Modeling God-like characteristics
Overcoming cabin fever
Making and keeping friends
Being the “real” you
Humor, encouragement, and the truths of God’s Word are woven through these brief stories to give encouragement to other moms.
