Grit and Grace Devotions for Warrior Moms and #giveaway!!!

Grit and Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms


My thoughts: GRIT AND GRACE: DEVOTIONS FOR WARRIOR MOMS is a book that all moms can relate to, whether they are veterans with grown children and grandchildren, or whether they are just starting out with their first newborn infant. 

The stories are personal and friendly, having something to do with giving birth or parenting, then the authors take leaps to tie it to scripture and include a prayer.  I would like there to be actual scripture references to read and meditate on to start with, but there are not, so as far as devotions go, its more of a healthy dose of "Hey, you can do this, Mom" rather than focus on actually feeding you spiritually. 

If you are looking for a friendly devotional that will allow you to spend five minutes or less getting a dose of motivation to press on, then this will be a good book to consider.  The stories are interesting, easy to read, and were a fun trip down memory lane in some cases.

About the book

Hang in There, Mama!

For those moments when you think you’ll never live up to the Supermoms around you—when you’re elbow deep in the grind of diapers and laundry and peanut butter sandwiches—you need a good dose of Grit and Grace.

This refreshing collection of 90 daily devotions comes from two moms who’ve found themselves face-to-the-floor in need of encouragement and now offer it to you. Through humor and vulnerability, these short messages of truth remove the filters of perfection clouding your vision and bring clarity to your purpose as a mom. As you read the Scripture and prayer that accompany each day’s message, you’ll discover more fully who you are in Christ and how to raise your children to reflect His love to the world.

In giving yourself grace, you will find you have even more grace to give from the One who is present in your life right now and in every moment.

About the author

Suzanne Hadley Gosselin and Gretta Kennedy first met as roommates at Multnomah University. They are quick to admit they did not like each other when they first met due to opposite personalities. However, they worked out their differences and became best friends who roomed together for all four years of college. Two decades later, during a phone conversation, they realized God was laying on their hearts the desire to write a devotional for moms of young children to encourage and strengthen them in their role as mothers. It was then the idea for Grit & Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms was born.

Suzanne Hadley Gosselin 
is a regular writer and editor for Focus on the Family and David C Cook and previously served as an editor for Clubhouse and Clubhouse Jr. Gosselin has written books for Zondervan, Harvest House and Tyndale and is the author of Expectant Parents: Preparing Together for the Journey of Parenthood.

Gosselin lives in Bakersfield, CA with her husband, Kevin, and four children. The family enjoys escaping to the ocean.
