Find freedom from mom-guilt, the myth of perfection, and the endless to-do list of motherhood, and step into your greatest adventure yet: becoming The Better Mom.

Rediscover the gift of motherhood with The Better Mom Devotional by trusted author Ruth Schwenk. As a busy mom of four, she understands the constant needs of raising a family, but she has uncovered a secret: becoming a better mom starts not with what you are doing but with who you are becoming.

As you read The Better Mom Devotional, you will find:

  • How God changes you from the inside out so you can increasingly experience His presence
  • Intentional ways to grow deeper faith in this busy time of life
  • The true calling of motherhood: training, disciplining, and loving your children well
  • The life-giving impact of fostering honest, loving friendships
  • The importance (and simplicity!) of creating a welcoming, functional, and beautiful home for your family—no Pinterest boards required!

One hundred devotions will encourage and inspire you with Scripture, reflection questions, and journaling space to jot down your thoughts and prayers. Each devotion, filled with Bible teaching, personal stories, and application, will help you open your heart to experience more of God’s love, truth, and grace.

Find freedom from mom-guilt, the myth of perfection, and the endless to-do list of motherhood, and step into your greatest adventure yet: becoming The Better Mom.

Hott Review of The Better Mom Devotional:

If you’re looking to strengthen your walk with the Lord and be the mom He wants you to be, look no further than The Better Mom Devotional!

I absolutely loved this 100-day devotional. Every time I opened it the words spoke right to my heart and I saw how it could apply to the very situation I was going through. Plus, I wanted to share every single devotion with someone!!

The best part of The Better Mom Devotional? It really should be called The Better Parent Devotional because much of it can be applied to dads as well. This is about becoming the parent God wants you to be and being assured you’re doing what He wants when it feels great and when it feels like the world is collapsing around your family.

The Better Mom Devotional is a beautifully bound book on thick paper with silver edging. It’s binding is really the only “girly” part of the book. 🙂 This would be an amazing gift to any mom you know – or for yourself.
