Mom Seeks God by Julia Roller offers a highly relatable story and useful advice to help new moms grow in their faith as they address life changes with grace, patience, and prayer. As readers discover ten essential faith practices, they’ll learn that motherhood itself is a spiritual discipline and can be God’s most effective technique for forming a more Christ-like life.
From the mouth of a book-reviewing mother of two teenagers and a 17 month old:
My 17 month old wants my immediate attention anytime I get up to do something productive (or enjoyable, like blogging), even though two minutes earlier he was playing contently without me! Julia, the author, taught me a few things about motherhood and spiritually and how the two can co-exist, even thought it’s not how we’d think they should. I would love to work on all of the spiritual disciplines she discussed and ventured through in her book. Yet, as I think back to her experiences, I see that it is okay to go at my own pace and to do it in a relaxed, nonrigid way, as to keep my priorities as wife and mother in line. Life isn’t to be lived by a set of rules or even by a set daily schedule. Life throws us punches and our little ones (and teenagers) need our attention at the seemingly most inconvenient times. Yet, those kiddos are part of our ministry and we shouldn’t let stuff or lists get in the way of showing them what true christian living is — loving and serving one another.
Don’t be so hard on yourself, mom! (Talking to myself here a bit!)
