Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

God is with you . . .

. . . in the excitement of first steps, first words, and the first day of school
. . . when you are frustrated, overwhelmed, or alone
. . . in the middle of the night and the middle of the unpleasant
. . . in your most important relationships

God is there in every busy, exhausting, and exhilarating moment of being a mom.

It's one thing to know in your mind that God is everywhere. It's quite another to feel in your soul that he is by your side, holding you up, sustaining you. In Always There, you'll find an inspiring combination of real-life mothering stories and Scriptures that assures you of God's abiding presence, written by popular voices such as

Ann Voskamp
Alexandra Kuykendall
Kathi Lipp
Tracey Bianchi
Kim Hill
Renee Swope
and many more

No matter where you are in your mothering journey, Always There offers you hope and encouragement along the way. From the humorous to the solemn, these fifty-two short devotions will capture your heart as you reflect upon your important role as a mother and upon your ever-present and steadfast source of strength.

Thanks to Susan Besze Wallace for reminding moms that even at our loneliest, most desperate times as a parent, God is there holding our hand. It is a comfort. This collection of devotionals is helping me become closer to god, and a better wife and mother.

This book was a beautiful reminder that as moms we all share similar fears, challenges, daily struggles on the toughest job we will ever have. With each devotion, I felt renewed, inspired and reminded of God's presence in our everyday labors and triumphs and how blessed I am to have the privilege of being a mom. This is a keeper; a book I want my daughter to have if she too is blessed one day with motherhood. I know it will help get her through...and remind her to enjoy all the little moments before they pass her by.

I am a stay at home mom and this book is an essential read in my opinion! I am so grateful for it's messages and motivation as I sometimes get frustrated by the monotony of my days. I know this work is for God and His mission for my family and those that we touch through our lives. This book is a fantastic reminder with REAL verses to reference how God is present in changing a diaper, feeding our family, and cleaning up messes. We minister to our family first as SAHMs and I love this book's encouragement to help me serve my family and other SAHMs every day.

Being a mom is a full-time, ever present role that a woman is in. It is very rewarding and filled with joy and happiness, but at times it is also tiring, frustrating and overwhelming. It can be so easy to feel alone and going through the struggles and difficulties alone. "Always There: Reflections for Moms on God's Presence, edited by Susan Besze Wallace, is filled with devotionals by several different woman to encourage mothers and remind them that God is always there with them each and every moment.

Each devotional begins with a Bible verse and ends with a reflection question. Each devotional is only a couple of pages long as we all know it is difficult to find a few spare moments to ourselves, so this is a devotional book that is ideal as a tidbit of encouragement is quickly gained! I really enjoyed this book as I could relate so much to many of the topics and stories shared within the pages. This book is such an encouragement and a must-read for moms - new mom and ones whom have been moms for years!

With a list of authors like Carol Kuykendall, Kathi Lipp and Keri Kent Wyatt, it has to be a great book, right? I expected to be wowed and impressed, but what I didn't expect was for each one I read to hit me right where I needed it (and sometimes hard).

From "I'll Have What She's Having" by Shannon Milholland (envy another mom much?), "Do We Have to Hurry, Mommy?" by Jenne Acevedo (Ugh & Ouch!), "Sometimes I Just Want to Quit" by Renee Swope (Ever have days like that?) and "The Pregnancy Test" by Alexandra Kuykendall (I have been there!), I felt like each author was writing straight to me. Let's just say I cried (more than once) and leave it at that.

And the best part (as if it could get even more amazing) is that each devotional is short enough to read in mommy time. I even managed to fit it in between needy 4 year-old moments.
