Almost Holy Mama
Life-giving Spiritual Practices for Weary ParentsBook - 2019
As a young mom up to her eyeballs in diapers and dishes, author Courtney Ellis longed to draw closer to Jesus. But sleep deprivation, Laundry Mountain, and endless to-do lists made her wonder what it could possibly look like to become a holy-or even almost holy-mama. Determined not to wait for a simpler stage of life, Ellis chronicles her yearlong experiment connecting ancient spiritual practices-listening prayer, fasting, studying Scripture, and more-to the routine, mundane tasks of parenting. What follows is a hilarious and humbling journey closer to the heart of God amid the messes and challenges of parenthood. Laugh along and discover how meeting God in sacred disciplines can breathe new life into one of life's most joy-tilled and trying seasons. Book jacket.
