Always There: Reflections for Moms on God's Presence

This is a compilation of devotional thoughts and inspirational stories by a number of women, including: Ann Voskamp, Hayley DiMarco, Kathi Lipp, Renee Swope, and many others.  It is a wonderful book full of real stories about mothering that I think we can all relate.  It is comforting to read about other women with the same struggles that I have.  It is even more comforting to read about finding the answer through the Lord!!  These short stories were gentle reminders to put God first in mothering, to take time to enjoy your children, to stop comparing the way you feel with the way other mothers/families look, etc.  Each entry can be read in mere minutes, which is often the only time we have!!  I consider this book a treasure and would highly recommend it.  It would make a great gift, too!!!



Always There: Reflections for Moms on God’s Presence
Susan Besze Wallace, General Editor

Every mom with young children knows there's no such thing as "alone." But that doesn't mean she never feels alone, lonely, or even abandoned. Always There is a devotional for moms, by moms, that assures readers that God's abiding presence remains no matter what the circumstances of life. God is there every step of the way, from the first smile to the everyday feedings to those middle-of-the-night times. From the humorous to the solemn, these short devotions will capture moms' hearts as they reflect on their role as mothers and on their  ever-present and steadfast God.

Contributors to Always There include Hayley  DiMarco, Kim Hill, Kathi Lipp, Amy Parham, Renee Swope, Ann Voskamp and many others. The fifty-two devotions are organized around aspects of life with young children.
These include:

Firsts
Marriage
Friendship
Overwhelmed
In Control
Mundane
Laughter and Play
Sacrifice

Work
Provision
