Sometimes life gets so busy with taking care of my children, my husband, and the household chores, that I forget to take care of myself. Even worse, there are times when I don't spend time with God's Word like I should. I find that reading a devotional can give me encouragement at the times I need it the most.
Moments For Mum is a collection of 61 daily devotions written by Narelle Nettelbeck of Australia. Each devotion is only about a page to a page and a half long, so it's really easy to find time to read. I really love the way that Narelle opens up about her struggles and her joys. Each day she shares a story on such topics as our children, anger, trust, love, jealousy, priorities, and so much more.
I know it's supposed to be read as a daily devotional, but sometimes I find myself reading more than one. It's kind of like she's talking to me. I love that it's written by another mother who has been through a lot of the same things as I have. Narelle also includes scripture relating to each day's message.
Narelle is a busy wife and mother to two boys. You can find her online at her blog Moments For Mum. I am encouraged each time I visit there. You can also buy her book there and at Amazon and Revival Nation Publishing.
