Devotions for Moms
As moms, we all need daily spiritual nourishment. The devotions and other resources you’ll find here at Manna for Moms will help you recognize and receive the spiritual nourishment God provides in each little moment of your life as a mother. You’ll learn how you can hear God’s voice even—or perhaps especially—in the ordinary.
Whether you’re a new mom or a mom whose children are grown; a mom of one, or of many; or a mom who works outside the home or inside the home, you will recognize yourself in these devotions, because you’ve been there, too.

There are times when it seems like life is going along just fine. It’s not perfect, but on the whole, things are going well. You’re content. You may even experience a period of particularly intimate communion with God. And then…BAM! Suddenly, you find yourself in the midst of a spiritual wilderness. Life looks bleak. That […]
This past July, my husband’s bike and Ellie’s bike were stolen off our front porch. In broad daylight. While there was a car in the driveway, and the babysitter was inside with the kids. I found out by text while I was at the Philadelphia Christian Writer’s Conference, for which I was serving on faculty. […]
Only in Texas (or maybe a few other places) would I have had a recent conversation with Lindsey that went something like this: Lindsey (running in from playing outside): “Mom! There’s an armadillo in the neighbors’ backyard!” Me: “Um…okay.” Lindsey: “It’s scared, and it can’t get out!” Me (wondering how one can tell if an […]
I don’t spend much time on Pinterest (as in, none). One reason is that Facebook already sucks up enough of my time; another reason is that I know myself well enough to know that rarely (if ever) would I actually carry out any of the wonderfully elaborate ideas I found there. This is partly because […]
