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.

When you have an almost-two-and-a-half-year-old who is very aware of what is going on around him, there’s no such thing as leaving the house by yourself. Not unless you possess military-level skills for avoiding detection, that is. Timmy loves to go o-u-t-s-i-d-e. If he sees me gathering up my purse, or even putting on shoes, […]
You can’t please everyone. This is especially true when you are serving dinner to your children. With each child you have, the odds increase that somebody isn’t going to like what’s served. Even if you only have one child, it’s entirely possible that what he or she liked the last time you served it may […]
Sometimes, having a good attitude is hard. At least, it was hard for Ellie on a day not long ago. Several things didn’t go her way, and as each one happened, she complained. I could understand how she felt (I’m often tempted to complain, too, when things don’t go as I would like), but I […]
Early that morning, my husband dressed Timmy, our two-year-old, in shorts and a short-sleeved, navy blue polo shirt. Timmy looked neat and clean (and handsome, I might add). But only a few hours later—by midmorning—the front of Timmy’s shirt was no longer pristine. Brightly-colored flecks of Play-Doh dotted the blue cotton, visible reminders of our […]
