More for Mom: Living Your Whole and Holy Life by Kristin Funston


More for Mom will encourage women to stop believing the lie that more is needed from them, and start living with the truth that more is available for them.

With real-life talk, humor and convicting biblical truths, Kristin Funston helps hard working mamas to look at each day and each facet of their life to discover what happens when they believe God has more for them than what they think the world needs from them.

And what He has available is a whole and holy life, just waiting to be claimed-a salvation and day-to-day reality complete just as it is. The pieces of each mom's life-the work life, mom life, social life, etc.-are mended together through Christ to complete her one whole life, set apart because of Him.

This book is a stepping stone to help working mothers reset their spiritual and emotional health, habits, and relationship with God. There are performance pressures at work, home, and mind-sets that affect a mom's ability to feel complete and live more closely aligned with God. This book includes the beginning steps for moms to walk in wholeness and holiness by asking God for more.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Many people who see this book title may assume that it is for women who are of child-bearing age. Well, I am many years past that time but it calls to me because I am deeply involved in the care of my five year-old granddaughter. It also speaks to me because I sometimes feel that I just can't get it all done. I know that I'm not alone because most of us experience heavy demands on our time and our busy lives can occur at any age! One of the chapters in More for Mom is titled "More Time" and the author discusses how to shift our time and energy back to Jesus. She also shows us how to use Biblical truths to gain a new perspective. Funston tells us that "The small pieces of our lives that seem separate from one another actually work together to complete who we are, because we have a Creator who speaks through our pieces from a place of true wholeness."

In another excerpt she shares Luke 12:23. Jesus tells his disciples that "For life is more than food, and the body is more than clothes". Funston reminds us that "Life is Who we allow to complete it, and our body is Who we allow to fill it". Wow!

More for Mom is filled with bible scripture and Funston's own personal experiences and it is a book that encourages, motivates and inspires. So, whether you are a twenty-something stay-at-home mother; a thirty-something mother with a career; or even a sixty-something grandmother who is once again in the mothering business---it doesn't matter because---this book is for you! More for Mom can help you can find truth and encourage you to find a way to enjoy a "whole and holy life".

I received a complimentary digital copy of this book but was under no obligation to post a positive review.
