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.

I figured that they would commit Infraction A, I would apply Discipline Technique B, and I would get Successful Resolution C. My kids would know that I meant business, and they would make the wise decision to stop […]
Imagine this: you’re sitting at your computer, scrolling through the latest posts on your timeline, when one of your children tracks you down. “Mommy,” she says, “Johnny says he doesn’t want to watch what I want to watch. But he got to choose what we watched last time. Tell him it’s my turn!” You close […]
Rarely do I read someone’s Facebook post and think, “Wow. Yes. That’s absolutely perfect.” Recently, however, a friend of mine posted a text message his wife (also a friend) had sent him during a difficult day at home with their one-year-old son. Here it is, reproduced here with her permission: [Our son is] miserable today […]
Sometimes, opportunities for relaxation pop up at the most unexpected times. Take, for example, a recent Sunday morning.
