Thanks-Giveaway #4: Three {5-Star} Books Giveaway!






And the fourth giveaway of our month of Thanks-Giveaways is sponsored by Moody Publishers.  It includes three 5-star rated books, one book a piece for three spectacular mommas.  The reviews I've read rave about each of these books.  I look forward to digging into each of them myself.

 
Finding God at the Kitchen Sink: Search for Glory in the Everyday Grime consists of several short reflections written by Maggie Paulus, all aimed to encourage and help us see God in the mundane activities of our lives. 

 
No More Perfect Kids: Love Your Kids for Who They Are is written by the widely popular author Jill Savage along with Kathy Koch.  The book enables parents to set their children free of expectations and allows them to become what God has created them to be.  Focusing on the issue of comparison which is an issue I believe to some extent we all struggle.

 
Hannah Anderson brings us the final book in this giveaway entitled, Made for More: An Invitation to Live in God's Image.  Between the mounds of laundry and piles of dishes, it is easy as mommas to lose our identity.  Hannah brings us back to the real question, who are you as a person created in God's image?

    My biggest joy in being a mom is seeing my boys grow and develop. My oldest has Autism and he just really started talking this year. Every word he says is a miracle! To hear him play with his little brother, and talk to each other, makes me so happy! Also, moments of cuddling are precious.

  43. Tarah C. My greatest joy in being a mom is their laughter at the silliest things. It's so easy to get caught up in all that has to get done, but when I take the time to just play and be silly, their laughter makes everything worth it.

  44. Amanda I. My biggest joy of being a momma is when my little ones put tears in my eyes just because they make me so happy. It's so easy to get caught up in to do lists and stress but when I really take a minute to play and talk to them I get these little happy tears(:

  45. Michelle F. The biggest blessing for me as a mom is the chance to sit at the Potter's Hand every day. Through each stretching, molding moment in my day, I can feel the Savior's hands gently smoothing the rough edges. As He does, I can feel His peace course through my veins as I set my gaze to do His will. Patiently pruning, weeding, and fertilizing my little boys as they set their course to become sons of God. The harvest comes slowly at times...but when it does oh how sweet it is. Baby kisses so slobbery, laughter from deep within, and watching them come alive when they discover His creation. Oh the blessings are so sweet. I cherish each hug and moment.

  46. My biggest joy in being a Momma is watching my son interact with other. He is so polite, shares his toys, loves Jesus and is never afraid to share Jesus with his friends. It is so sweet to stand back and watch Him at work through my son! Susan C.

  47. Melissa H. My biggest joy in being a momma is watching my children grow in the knowledge and love of the Lord and seeing them spread that love to everyone they meet! Children are such a blessing and others can't help but be lifted up when they meet a sweet child.

  48. Betty J. I love watching my boys learn new things and grow. It is incredible.

  49. Melissa B: My biggest joy of being a mama (two under 5 years old) are the hugs. I love when they start singing their own made up songs for Jesus, sing solo hymns in church, growing in knowledge (even of Jesus), are obedient, love to read books, have personal devotionals, and love to explore... but it's simply the sincere hugs and kisses that bring me the greatest joy.

  50. Courtney W. The biggest joy in being a momma is just that, being a momma. It is a true blessing to have these two wonderful gifts from God. I may be tired, frustrated, up all night, and up all day. But to see my children grow and to be gifted with my two toddlers brings me so much joy. I am lucky I get to be a stay at home mom who strives to be the best I can be. The joy is in the journey. Journey that my children take growing up and me being their mom.

  51. Amy W. When they come running to me yelling "Mamma" to tell or show me something.
