Review

Spilt Milk is an inspirational devotional filled with hilarious stories that will encourage any mom. This book is an outstanding source of real life wisdom that will lead even the busiest of moms into a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. -- Dr. Rick Warren, , Senior Pastor

From the Back Cover

Laughter lightens the heart and helps you discover grace in the moment In a mother's land of milk and honey, the milk is often spilt and the honey is usually smeared all over the face of the baby in his high chair. Linda Vujnov has been there and knows exactly what it feels like. Between packing lunches, drying the dishes in the sink, returning emails, and making sure mascara is applied without smudges, Spilt Milk offers a delightful alternative for busy moms that will lighten your day and remind you that God's grace is found in the most unlikely places. You'll discover the ways God uses the everyday adventures of an imperfect woman to emphasize his grace. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book is a perfect gift for any Mother or even Grandmother. Real life everyday short stories are followed by a bible verse. It is a way of bringing together a Moms typical day and living in God's word. I found it difficult to read just one story a day and wanted to just keep reading!

This book is full of stories that I can completely relate to.
I have enjoyed each story. It is hard to read just one.
The stories make you laugh out loud, they encourage and inspire.
The scripture at the end of each story is perfect allowing me to meditate on it throughout the day.

Format: Paperback
Whenever I have done a devotional it has always been hit and miss with me. Either they were so intense that it was like doing a bible study or so light that I could have received as much inspiration if I had read the comics.

Finding the right balance between humor, insight, inspiration and God's words is not as easy as it may appear.

Linda Vujnov did a fabulous job with Spilt Milk. As a mom of twin girls I can relate to many of her chapters and titles. Such as "My Last Drink", "Wit's End" and "Stupid Words". She shares her highs and lows of being a mom with small children in a way that any mom can relate.

Within each of her daily devotions is the "moment" when God touches her heart to see life His way...when the ah-ha minute strikes. At the end she concludes it with a verse to ponder for the day.

Spilt Milk is the perfect devotional to carry in your purse or backpack for those times when you have a few minutes to dwell in God's word....as a mom those moments need to be found because they don't just fall in your lap.

Linda Vujnov realizes that moms are busy, harried and rushed most of the days...but she always reminds us that we have a heavenly Father that will helps to slow down, calm down and relax...if we only let Him be in charge.

Format: Paperback
This devoational, at best, is for those who are looking for a sugary, non-nutritional "snack" of God's Word. This book contains dozens of devotionals, each devotional is about 3 pages long. The author dedicates about 2 pages to a cute and funny story, and I will give her credit that the stories are very humorus and as a mother, you will absolutely relate to what she is saying and see the humor in each one. The remaining one or one and a half pages of each devotional are devoted to thinking about God, being a Christian etc. The problem is, she spends about half a page setting it up (for example recapping what should be a familiar Bible story to any Christian) and at best a paragraph is dedicated to actual devotional thoughts-like remembering God's love for us, doing what is good, or obeying certain commands. Each devotional ends with a single Bible verse in italics.

Another issue with the actual lack of devotional thoughts is how shallow each thought is. Here are some actual examples from the book:
-we each have different talents to be used differently-such as being musical, creative, or oganized. We should use those talents to the best of our ability.
-We need to use Scripture to help us act in "Christian" ways such as not losing patience when in a dr's waiting room. (By the way, on that one she actually says that we will mess up, of course, but if we just keep trying hard enough, and "using God's Word" eventually we can "do a better job". Perhaps the author forgot the entire message of Christianity, which is that we cannot do it on our own, which is why Christ died for us. We can't just "read God's Word" and do better, we need to be changed by Christ.)
-We have a Father in Heaven that will help us in hard times if we just put Him first in our lives.
