Mommy Pick-Me-Ups

Authors: Edna Ellison and Linda Gilden
Publishers: New Hope Publishers
April 2008
ISBN: 978-1-59669-218-3
Genre: Inspirational/nonfiction/devotional

MOMMY PICK-ME-UPS is a devotional for busy mom’s facing the reality of too many dishes in the sink, sticky peanut butter and jelly children, and laundry piled sky-high. We all have the blessings of a baby or toddler, but not too many of us are prepared for the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual changes.

MOMMY PICK-ME-UPS is designed to break through all the busyness in your life, and help you have the spiritual encounters that you need to keep your faith alive and renewed.

Each devotional starts with a short story that moms will relate to on some level, then shares a relevant verse, and finally suggestions for sharing what you learned with your children, or suggestions on how to make a special family occasion out of the devotional.

I enjoyed reading MOMMY PICK-ME-UPS, but as it is entitled, it is designed for brief pick-me-ups, and not a fulfilling study with meat. There are excellent points made in this devotional, and the creative parenting part was especially interesting, with some real good suggestions in there. I highly recommend this devotional for busy moms with small children. $10.99. 171 pages.

Is your blog basically book reviews? My husband and I have just finished our book titled "Where There is Hope" about how we found hope in the midst of a devastating experience. Would you be interested in reading it and reviewing it on your blog? Thanks. You can find it at
