Mothering small children is exhausting and mind-numbing work. Just finding time to get dressed each day can be a challenge. So how can you possibly find time for God? Your need for God may be greatest at this time of life more than any other. You need God's wisdom, his guidance, and--most of all--his peace. You need to find ways to hear his still, small voice amid the whirlwind of diapers and feedings, first steps and first words, sore throats and skinned knees, playmates, broken toys, birthdays, big questions, and nightmares. In this book Keri Kent offers you encouragement and ideas from one who has been--and still is--in the middle of mothering twenty-four hours each day. Here you'll find a welcome companion on your daily quest to seek God and bring his peace into your heart and home.
