Mom Seeks God

Practicing Grace in the Chaos

by Julia L. Roller

The first months and years of moth­er­hood can be the most chal­leng­ing and dis­ori­ent­ing of your life — and faith. When you’re sur­round­ed by the hap­py chaos of chil­dren, how do you spend qui­et time with God if the only qui­et time you get is while you sleep? How can you demon­strate a sol­id spir­i­tu­al life to your chil­dren if you don’t have time to pur­sue one yourself?

When Julia Roller dis­cov­ered that her spir­i­tu­al growth had been stunt­ed by the busy­ness of life with her tod­dler, she embarked on a year­long jour­ney through ten spir­i­tu­al dis­ci­plines: prayer, fel­low­ship, sub­mis­sion, study, sim­plic­i­ty, silence, wor­ship, fast­ing, ser­vice, and cel­e­bra­tion. As she focused on each dis­ci­pline, she dis­cov­ered prac­ti­cal ways to observe them — even in the chaos of her every day.

Mom Seeks God offers a high­ly relat­able sto­ry and use­ful advice to help new moms grow in their faith as they address life changes with grace, patience, and prayer. As read­ers dis­cov­er ten essen­tial faith prac­tices, they’ll learn that moth­er­hood, itself, is a spir­i­tu­al dis­ci­pline, and may be God’s most effec­tive tech­nique for form­ing a more Christ-like life.
