Review: 40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood by Sarah Humphrey

 About the book:

40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood: Devotions and Coloring Book to Nourish Mom (Abingdon Press, August 2016)

Nourishment for a mother's soul through 40 days of devotion and . . . doodling!

Wouldn't it be marvelous if mothering came with a concrete set of instructions---an easy recipe we could follow? Instead, motherhood challenges women to find their faith, their true selves, and their family through daily doses of trial and error. It is a brilliant and healing time of life that is full of joy, pain, and beauty with a small side of crisis (and humor). What mothers do not know, they learn. And through this lifelong process of learning, they nurture and care for the most precious gifts on earth: children. In a modern society where moms often have a full and busy plate, these 10 minute daily devotions focus on six key topics of motherhood:

-Reconciling with grief, hope and expectations
In addition to the devotions, these beautiful pages are adorned with handmade illustrations to help you refresh from long days or even occasional sleepless nights. So, grab your colors and a little quiet time for yourself while doodling at the kitchen table. You will be grateful you did!

My Review:

Coloring books are so popular right now, so I was interested when I saw that there was a coloring book and devotional together.  40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood is a coloring book and a devotional focused on Mom.  This book helps moms to focus on joy in all the ups and downs that life and parenthood sends our way.  The devotionals are short and to the point, with a lot of truth, great lessons, reminders, and ideas packed into them.  There is a Bible verse and a short simple prayer that accompanies each devotional.  What makes this unique is that there is a coloring page that follows.  These are very simple pages to color, which I like as I don’t have a lot of time to sit and make a masterpiece.  Just little simple reminders for Moms and also an opportunity to let a bit of creativity show through that would make a nice gift for any Mom in any stage of motherhood.  Even Grandmas, as my own mother enjoys coloring.

I received this book free of charge through Litfuse.  I was not required to give a favorable review and all views expressed are my own.
