Hey there, and welcome to Devotionals for Moms!
Snuggle in with a cup of hot cocoa and let’s have a chat. Do you have a moment?
I know… trust me, I know. You really don’t have a moment. You are overextended and overwhelmed. You have a million things on your to-do list, and you feel pulled in a thousand directions at once. You try to be all things to all people, but that just leaves you feeling depleted and isolated, like no one ‘gets’ you. You crave connection. But mostly you know in your heart that you need that connection to be with God most of all.
All day long you hear messages telling you to do more, be more, try harder. But you can’t possibly try harder.. And that isn’t really the problem anyway.
You don’t need more, you need better. You don’t need to do more. You need quiet time with God. You need to drink from the well and you need to be reminded that God cares for you.
I believe that taking time to deepen your relationship with God and fellowship with other women of faith will significantly grow not only your faith, but the faith of those around you… and when your faith grows, so does your sense of peace, joy, contentment, and love. Because after all… God is love and God loves you.
Devotionals for Moms is here because we were not meant to grow our faith alone. You don’t have to feel alone.

We all have a story to tell… this one is mine:
For years I dreamed of becoming a wife, Mom, and homemaker. I longed for the imagined simplicity of making the bed everyday, baking bread from scratch, and snuggling with my babies as the afternoon sun covered us in a blanket of peace and contentment.
And then life happened.
I didn’t get married until later in life. I fell in love with both my husband and my career. I suffered from infertility and a string of miscarriages. I was in a freight train hurtling towards the brick wall of mid-life and the train had failed to make a few essential stops along the way. As I rounded the corner towards 40 years old, I panicked. I mourned the loss of the life I had dreamed of. I prayed.
One day, God blessed us with a miracle— my daughter.
In an instant, I traded my longing for motherhood with the chaos of trying to keep up with a spirited little girl. My heart was full of love but life still happened. The feelings of inadequacy didn’t evaporate, they amplified. The peace and contentment I craved seemed further away than I could have ever imagined before becoming a Mom. I felt isolated, unconnected, and unhinged.
My faith was in a crisis.
Instead of folding up into a ball of goo and closing my eyes until the hardships of motherhood had passed, I leaned into the storms and embraced the chaos. I learned to lean on my friends, my husband, on God. I called upon reserves of resilience I didn’t even know I had, and I reclaimed my joy.
And every day, when I remember to stop and listen to God’s voice, my faith grows stronger and stronger.
And yours can too….
…let’s grow our faith together!
