Review

"Tamara [uses stories] as fresh as 'this morning' about her children and the unique challenges they presented to her. Or some simple phrase that [will surprise] us all into one of those "duh!" moments when the answer was so obvious and simple that we'd walked right over it in pursuit of something harder and more complicated. This book of moments from my friend Tamara is not for 'mommies only.' It is for anyone who longs for fresh insights from the heart of a seeker in sneakers." -- Gloria Gaither

"Young moms will find practical help and lots of encouragement in these pages." -- Bob Lepine co-host of FamilyLife Today

From the Back Cover

"Lord, if kids are your blessing, could You please spread the blessing on a little less thick?"

Diapers, tantrums, and sibling spats have left many parents digging for the blessing buried somewhere deep in the chaos of parenting.

Certainly there are precious moments of love, fun, and wonder with children, but sometimes the strain seems overwhelming. Busy parents struggle to find quiet moments to give undivided attention to God.

While quiet moments may be rare, this collection of 31 touching reflections, reminds weary moms and dads that every day, whether frenzied or serene, is filled with demonstrations of God’s blessing . . . for those who are watching. Tamara Boggs shows how children can be a window to greater understanding of the Heavenly Father. Each brief devotional centers on lessons gathered from the daily grind of life and point to this truth: When we see God’s wisdom through the unique lens of a child’s life, we will be reminded that children are indeed a blessing from the Lord.

“This book of moments from my friend Tamara is not for ‘mommies only.’ It is for anyone who longs for fresh insights from the heart of a seeker in sneakers.”


—Gloria Gaither

“Young moms will find practical help and lots of encouragement in these pages.”

Format: Paperback
You know, there are frustrating moments in every parent's life - diapers, tantrums, sibling spats (and multiply by two if you have twins). Then there are the unforgettable moments - sticky hugs, wildflower bouquets, talents shows for the silly, and beneath it all, the awesome responsibility to nurture the children in the admonition and fear of the Lord.
This book is about this and much more. It's a collection of reflections which reminds the moms (and dads) that every day, whether we are frenzied, scared, angry, or serene, that it is filled with demonstrations of God's blessings - our children. I have needed these demonstrations repeatedly, and I highly recommend this book to those who are looking for a "daily boost," so to speak, but just don't use the book. Keep a Bible handy to measure what you read against the Truth of the Word.
A nice addition to the library, and it's filled with practical help and lots of encouragement.

This is a book any mother can relate to. Tamara's descriptions of everyday happenings with her children show great insight into God's love for His children. She reminds us that we all have frustrating days as parents and that if we will just listen our children can teach us. Children Are a Blessing from the Lord is a great devotional book or gift.
