Thank you for stopping by. It's my hope you find glimpses of my Savior interwoven thru my writings. I am the wife to one husband for over 25 years, a blessed mama to a dozen children, yes each born from me ~ two of which see Jesus face to face & ten at home, all of us yearning to see Jesus someday. We have been home educating for over 18 years with . . . well, another 15 years to go (the youngest is 3, the oldest 23!) I have walked through rejection, to continually learning I am CALLED, LOVED and forever KEPT by God - never, ever to be rejected by Jesus! (Jude 1:1) I've walked through deep sorrow to find that joy does come again, though the night may be long; I've witnessed God orchestrating miracles with my children still beyond my comprehension, & I am seeing new love forming as we begin a new road of older children finding life mates. My life has and is a journey, from the deepest, almost rock bottom pit, to stumbling through my faith and looking towards the ultimate climax of everlasting life in heaven. Will you be joining me here and there? ~ Loni

BOOK REVIEW: Grace for the Race - Meditations for Busy Moms

This is a great book for busy moms! It may be just what you need first thing in the morning, along with your cup of coffee or tea, and your Bible. Grace for the Race - Meditations for Busy Moms, by Dena Dyer is an easy reading book of encouragements. I skimmed through the whole book in an afternoon (189 pages) but am now slowly going through it much more slowly each day or so, to glean more encouragements from it, I missed from reading through it quickly!

Each meditation (or devotional) starts with a short quote (generally one sentence) from someone like Erma Bombeck or Charles Spurgeon. Next comes about a one to two page devotional. Many times it's sharing her life experiences and/or how she may have gotten through struggle or a low point in her life. She shares about pregnancies, miscarriages, depression, children, forgiving, etc. At the end of her writing, she has "Notes from the Coach", a page or two of Scripture that relate to what she wrote about.

This book is perfect for the new mom, or a mom overwhelmed with all that she do with the busyiness as a mom. Get one for yourself - and you might want to pick one up for a friend too!

Mrs. Dena Dyer, the author, also has a webpage.

NOTE: As a Mind & Media Reviewer, I was not compensated for providing this review. I received this complimentary book in order to review it and am thankful for this opportunity.
