The first months and years of motherhood can be the most challenging and disorienting of your life—and faith. When you’re surrounded by the happy chaos of children, how do you spend quiet time with God if the only quiet time you get is while you sleep?
How can you demonstrate a solid spiritual life to your children if you don’t have time to pursue one yourself? I felt stalled in my spiritual growth by the busyness of life with her toddler, so I embarked on a yearlong journey through ten spiritual disciplines: prayer, fellowship, submission, study, simplicity, silence, worship, fasting, service, and celebration.
As I focused on each discipline, I discovered practical ways to observe them—even in the chaos of the everyday. Mom Seeks God offers a highly relatable story and useful advice to help new moms grow in their faith as they address life changes with grace, patience, and prayer.
As readers discover ten essential faith practices, they’ll learn that motherhood, itself, is a spiritual discipline, and may be God’s most effective technique for forming a more Christ-like life.

This is a book for mothers, to be sure. But it is just as much a book for fathers. Indeed, it contains ample life lessons for parents-to-be and for parents-who-have-been. The stories charm us. The lessons instruct us. The insights guide us. Tolle lege, take and read.
