Taking a Few Minutes each day to Become a Better Mom

Like many moms today, I always feel a need to be perfect; and when I am not at my best, I have mom guilt!  Then, throw in the fact that I am constantly on the go (carpool, grocery shopping, etc).  Plus, I work a part-time job.  Needless to say, I rarely get "me time".  I know it's important but it is something I have neglected for quite a while. I just can't seem to find the time.

Well until recently.  A few weeks ago, I was given a complimentary copy of "The Better Mom Devotional" by Ruth Schwenk.  I decided to put it in my car's glove box and I pull it out each afternoon while waiting in carpool line! (Heck, it's the few minutes where I get some quiet and I will take it!)

In this new devotional, Ruth encourages and inspires moms with scripture, reflective questions and journaling space. The hardcover book includes 100 devotions that cover topics such as: the power of being gentle, guarding the heart and home from grumbling, friendships that are realistic, taking fun more seriously, pursuing holiness, loving by listening, speaking life into marriage, and not "mommimg" alone. 

Thank you to Ruth Schwenk for showing me how to better a better mom! I have learned to love and appreciate spending a few minutes in thought each day, followed by daily prayer for my children. My entire family can see the difference and for that I am blessed.
