"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.”

Tamara Boggs is a country girl at heart and loves living in a centennial farmhouse with her husband and three children in Indiana's heartland. She is pursuing a Master of Divinity degree from Anderson School of Theology to add to her Bachelor's degree in psychology and marriage & family science.
