Format: Hardcover
Kristin Armstrong --- author, contributing editor for Runner's World magazine, and inspirational speaker --- writes about the magnitude and meaning of motherhood in her newest book, HEART OF MY HEART. As a single mother to three preteens, Armstrong offers a day-by-day inspirational introspective devotional for moms with kids of all ages. Armstrong muses on the lessons she has learned as a mom (and as a mom parenting solo) and how her faith is the foundational staying factor for every decision she now makes. Transparent in her perspective of sometimes feeling overwhelmed, under-qualified and out of her league to parent her son and twin daughters, Armstrong's voice reads comforting and familiar.

Throughout this beautifully designed book, Armstrong's format is first and foremost to put readers' attention onto a brief scriptural reading. Then she weaves together some personal anecdote or a story or two with the theme of the verse. Within a single page, she succeeds in directing her readers to the Bible, relating the timeless truth to daily living, and then nicely sums up with a strong takeaway closing sentence. Just a few of the topics she discusses include stress, over-commitment, exhaustion, patience, anger, loss, discouragement, doubt, contentment, courage, friendship, reconciliation, forgiveness, regret and hope.

Though every one of Armstrong's essays have something worth mulling over throughout the day, some of the more stick-with-you devotionals are those that challenge women to step outside of their comfort zones, no matter what that particular scenario looks like to each individual woman.

This is a very insightful devotional book for not only mothers, but grandmothers. After finishing it, you will want to read it again. It would, also, make a great gift.

I was given this book as a gift and turned around a few weeks later to purchase several copies to give as gifts. It is a well-written devotional that speaks to the heart of parenting with purpose. For me, parenting would be impossible if I didn't stay connected to my Parent in Heaven. This book reminds me daily to stay connected, and stay grounded to my Source of Wisdom and might...I think it is a gift for my children as well: a happy, grounded mommy! I highly recommend it!

I have given several of Kristen Armstrong's devotional books as gifts (especially the she wrote after her divorce). I came across this book at a yard sale. The message she provides each day is a way to be inspired for the day. There are days when the verse and story hits close to home. If you have young women who have young children this is a perfect gift for them. She understands what they are going through.
