40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood: Devotions and Coloring Book to Nourish Mom
(Abingdon Press, August 2016)
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!

I've done some of the mandala coloring pages, but have never had my own coloring book. This 40 Days to a Joyful Motherhood is an excellent book- in that you can search your soul and calm your mind just getting away with God in prayer and coloring. The devotions themselves aren't long; however, each devotional has a coloring page. It would definitely take several settings to complete if you are a mom that is in great demand. The coloring might even have to be a project for nap time or quite mommy minutes. However, they aren't too overwhelmingly detailed. Some have some have scripture verses others are just pictures.
The devotionals are on the modern, new-age side and geared for mommies that is for sure. How can you go wrong with meditating on God's Word and spending time relaxing and coloring.
