This book is absolutely beautiful! The font combination makes it look pretty and feminine. One of my favorite details is the scalloped edges of the pages!
This book is arranged by topic and is in alphabetical order. It makes it easy to find what you’re looking for.

It’s perfect for all mothers, no matter what stage of mothering they’re in. These are words that all moms need to hear. From the brand new mother to the mom who now has an empty nest.
This book will encourage any woman, knowing that there are other moms out there going through the same things they’re going through. The stories from other women will help you realize other moms are thinking the same things, and feeling the same things as you.
The stories help you realize, you need to take a few moments to reflect and celebrate the privilege of being a parent and getting to watch your little ones grow—and Slow Down.

If you know of any mom who just seems weighed down with life. They just can’t seem to catch a break. One thing goes wrong, and when that’s resolved, another thing goes wrong.

This devotional will give the woman in your life some hope for every day for an entire year! I’m sure she’ll feel the same way I do when I read it every night. It’s just amazing to me that every single daily devotion seems like it was written for me in that moment!
Anyone who’s been going through some rough times lately in life, will appreciate one of my favorite devotions in the book. It talks about how Christ is with us “every moment of every day.” It’s so comforting to know that we “will never face anything alone.” Often we feel like it’s just us against the world, or actually more like the whole world is against us! At least we are “with the One who has overcome the world.” So, we can be encouraged to go out and face each day knowing that Christ is with us and we’re not doing this alone.
Also, because it’s from Billy Graham, anyone who’s loves to hear his wisdom, will love this encouraging devotional.

If you know of anyone who’s ever been through any hard times in their life, you should have them read this book. It will encourage them to read how a family can go through such hard times, yet still come out on the other side.
Plus, any fans of Rory and Joey Feek and their music will enjoy getting to know more about them.
Once Upon a Farm by Rory Feek
This book is a great way to get to know all about Rory and Joey, and their life together. Also, now about Rory’s life without Joey. This book is such an easy book to read because the story is so captivating! Plus, the cute cover on the front makes me smile every time I pick it up.
If the lady in your life is like me and is fascinated by reading the story of famous people’s lives, they should read this book. If you know of anyone who’s been through hard times, like losing a spouse, this would be a great book for them. It’s encouaging to read how a family can go through such hard times, yet still come out on the other side.
This book teaches you about the power of your words, and how changing your words can help you be happy.
Right from the introduction, you learn about the power of your words and how they have the power to change, for good or bad.
The author gives you practical ways to “talk ourselves happy.” An example is that we should speak words about ourselves that agree with what God says about us. Words like, “I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.” Psalm 139:14. If you start speaking words like these instead, then your words won’t consume your peace, joy and happiness.
When you focus on those things, it will take your mind off your circumstances and fills you with joy and peace. I’m sure the mom in your life could use some of that!
The picture on the cover of the mountains with God’s light shining on them is just beautiful! It will give you peace just looking at it!
Each daily devotion always includes a practical application that makes you think more positively about the day you just finished. As you read the application, think about how much Joni has gone through and what an amazing woman of God she is. If she can still praise God, than you can certainly praise Him too in the midst of your problems!
It’s nice that each devotion concludes with a prayer. Sometimes you don’t always know what to say in your prayers and they can end up off topic. So, saying these prayers keeps you focused.
One of my favorite devotions is from January 5. Psalm 42: 5-6. It talks about how you can hear negative voices from the world and the devil. You need to remind yourself who you are in Christ, and that the Father loves you. The prayer talks about speaking life and peace into your soul.
Every mom would love to have peace before bed and reading this devotional can help!
Whether you’re facing mundane routines or painful hardships, joy often feels out of reach. But those who know Jesus can live joyfully, no matter what—it’s a gift that can only come from God. Jesus engulfs His followers with great love so that He may fill them with His joy.
Bestselling author Sheila Walsh invites you to discover daily joy. Through funny and inspiring stories, powerful takeaways, and encouraging scriptures, she shows that joy sometimes comes from gratitude, God’s beautiful creation, grace, or simply delighting in God’s goodness and love. And it always comes from spending time in Jesus’ presence. He brings life, restoration, and . . . joy!
I’m sure you know moms who often worry about their kids. One chapter says that if you entrust them to God, your hurt would be full of joy instead of worry. Every mom could definitely use that!
In the book, it talks about how children see things we often miss, and how if we stopped to appreciate those things too, we would be more full of joy. This will help moms appreciate their children more.
