Devos for Moms

Our Parents Share group has been meeting for about five months now and although the group is very informal, I do try to start out our time together with a devotion.  To that end, I've done numerous searches on Google and Pinterest along the lines of "devos for moms."  Some that I've found have been decent; others not so much.

When digging around for resources like this, I see myself as somewhat of a curator- kind of like the person in the museum who sifts through all the possible art and then picks out the best to be presented.  With that in mind, here are some of the devotions that I've found that I like and keep going back to when finding something to share with our group.

Out of the Spin Cycle by Jen Hatmaker
Jen's writing style is fresh, easy to relate to, and she doesn't give the air that "I've got this all together."  For all these reasons, I've come to really like her book, and it is one I use often. 

Jesus Calling by Sara Young
It goes without saying that in order for a devotional to be meaningful for moms, it doesn't have to be written specifically for moms.  That's where this one comes in- the focus of it is on learning to become more aware of Christ's presence in the day to day.  Because of this focus, even though it's not written specifically for moms, it certainly relates to staying centered as a parent in the midst of everything else we have going on.

Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World by Joanna Weaver
This is a book I read back in college that has stuck with me ever since.  It's more of a book than a devotional, but I think the topic is something many of us moms (and women in general) can relate to.
