40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood: Devotions and Coloring Book to Nourish Mom~By Sarah Humphrey~Book Review

by adustyframe ~ October 28th, 2016



What a fun book to review! It combines nourishment for Mom’s soul along with coloring pages.

Each day has a short devotional and an inspirational coloring page.

About the book:

Nourishment for a mother’s soul through 40 days of devotion and . . . doodling!

Wouldn’t it be marvelous if mothering came with a concrete set of instructions—an easy recipe we could follow? Instead, motherhood challenges women to find their faith, their true selves, and their family through daily doses of trial and error. It is a brilliant and healing time of life that is full of joy, pain, and beauty with a small side of crisis (and humor). What mothers do not know, they learn. And through this lifelong process of learning, they nurture and care for the most precious gifts on earth: children. In a modern society where moms often have a full and busy plate, these 10 minute daily devotions focus on six key topics of motherhood:

—Reconciling with grief, hope and expectations

In addition to the devotions, these beautiful pages are adorned with handmade illustrations to help you refresh from long days or even occasional sleepless nights. So, grab your colors and a little quiet time for yourself while doodling at the kitchen table. You will be grateful you did!


About the Author:

She has and is authoring several books and children’s books. Sarah currently resides in Nashville, Tennessee with her husband and three beautiful, bouncy kids.




My thoughts:

What a fun concept. The coloring or doodle pages are fun and charming. I like the idea of coloring while meditating on the thoughts and verses shared in the devotional for that day.

    Hi Lizzie! Stopped by to catch up on your blog today. If you guys, or friends or readers, send OCC Christmas Shoeboxes, please link-up or email me a photo–I’ll be doing a Virtual Packing Party on November 12 to raise awareness for the program.

    I’m scared to think how old both your “babies” must be by now. I notice mine are somehow 22 and about to be 21. Where has the time gone.

    I”ll enjoy exploring your posts. I tweeted this one, and may do so with others, for you. Lots of people love coloring right now!

    Thanks for the tweet!
