I’m quietly dropping in to wish you a Merry Christmas, hoping you, too, find inspiration from the Christmas morning depicted in Little Women, when Jo, Meg, Beth, and Amy received books under their pillows. I hope you pause at some point like they did to softly turn pages and feel winter sunshine creep in with a Christmas greeting.
“[T]he rooms were very still while the pages were softly turned, and the winter sunshine crept in to touch the bright heads and serious faces with a Christmas greeting.”
— from Little Women, by Louisa May Alcott

Are the demands of motherhood keeping you from a rich relationship with God?
With ideas from mothers in all seasons of life, this book offers creative, practical, and enjoyable suggestions to help you discover how a passionate relationship with God is possible in the midst of motherhood.
“The Contemplative Mom gives busy, loving, kid-centered mothers permission to rest, like a tired child, in God’s strong arms. An important book.”
