Pressing Pause--Women's Devotional Karen E. Hman & Ruth Schiwenk

Pressing Pause ( A Devotional for Moms) Book Review

I totally enjoyed this new devotional book.  Although its written by moms for moms with children at home
I think any woman would enjoy reading it.  I did.

I loved the title.  I know there are meaning times I just need to Press Pause!

The devotionals are short.  Actually maybe too short.  I caught myself wanting to read it like a book instead of a daily devotional.   But is that a bad thing?  I think not.

As described it is what it is.  !00 separate devotionals with topics like . . .
Turning Worry into Worship, A Place of Peace, More Than a Mom, Juicy-Fruit Faith and many more.

I didn't actually count them but it seemed to me that more of the devotionals were written by Karen than
Ruth.    They were equally encouraging and uplifting.

Each devotional begins with a scripture and ends with a few questions to ponder that you can answer right on the page there is a place for your thoughts and doodles.  I could see this lovely book used to illustrate the scripture.

Although I wasn't real impressed with the cover mainly because I think it doesn't photo well and wasn't real
attractive to me from a marketing perspective.  I wouldn't be drawn to pick it up off a shelf  based on the cover.  But once I read the title and subtitle I was definitely interested.  I did really like the colors and the paper used for printing.

All in all this is a really nice book that I would highly recommend for all moms.
It would make a great gift for a new mother or a great mothers day gift.

I enjoyed meeting the authors on the website and blog.  Click here for more information.
