Julia Roller in her new book “Mom Seeks God book coverMom Seeks God” published by Abingdon Press gives us Practicing Grace in the Chaos.

From the back cover:  Ten essential spiritual disciplines for busy moms.

What is it about motherhood that causes you to abandon any semblance of a spiritual life? Why is it that when you need God’s peace the most, you sometimes feel God’s presence the least? When you’re surrounded by the happy chaos of children, how do you spend time with God–especially if it means choosing prayer over sleep? How can you demonstrate a solid spiritual life to your children if you don’t have one yourself?

Mom Seeks God offers a highly relatable story, practical advice, and wry humor to help anyone grow in their faith as they address life changes with grace, patience, and prayer. As readers discover ten essential faith practices, they’ll learn that motherhood itself is a spiritual discipline and may even be God’s most effective technique for forming us into the people we were created to be.

It is difficult to find the time for our special time with the Lord when a child or children are demanding so much of our time.  And we are mostly happy to give it to them.  So what do we do?  This is what “Mom Seeks God” is all about.   Moms often neglect their own spiritual encouragement and growth in the name of putting their family first. But a mom can’t fully demonstrate a solid spiritual life to her children without personally taking the time to pursue one.  Ms. Roller shares how she focused on one spiritual practice each month for a year and outlines ten essential spiritual disciplines for busy moms:   prayer, fellowship, submission, study, simplicity, silence, fasting, worship, service, and celebration.  Along with Ms. Roller by the time you finish the book you will discover that motherhood itself may be God’s most effective technique for forming a more faith-filled life.  Great book.

Kim Vogel Sawyer in her new book “Echoes Of Mercy book coverEchoes Of Mercy” published by Waterbrook Press takes us into the life of Caroline Lang.

From the back cover:  Sometimes a secret must be kept for the truth to be revealed. 

When a suspicious accident occurs at the famous Dinsmore Chocolate Factory in Sinclair, Kansas, Caroline Lang goes undercover as a factory worker to investigate the circumstances surrounding the event and how the factory treats its youngest employees—the child workers. Caroline’s fervent faith, her difficult childhood, and compassionate heart drove her to her job as an investigator for the Labor Commission and she is compelled to see children freed from such heavy adult responsibilities, to allow them to pursue an education.

Oliver Dinsmore, heir to the Dinsmore candy dynasty, has his own investigation to conduct. Posing as a common worker known as “Ollie Moore,” he aims to find out all he can about the family business before he takes over for his father. Caroline and Oliver become fast friends, but tension mounts when the two find themselves at odds about the roles of child workers. Hiding their identities becomes even more difficult when fate brings them together over three children in desperate need. When all is revealed, will the truth destroy the love starting to grow between them?

A Chocolates Factory and a suspicious accident.  An investigator for the Labor Commission, Caroline, goes undercover to find out who did it and why.  Oliver is also undercover trying to learn about the family company from the bottom  up.  Both of them collide over child labor and, specifically, three children.  Of course there is the element of mystery regarding the accident and the death and that will keep you guessing however the real focus is on child labor before the Child Labor Laws were passed.  I knew some of the problems I just didn’t know the full extent of it.  Wow, it was terrible.  Ms. Sawyer has given us history and social issues all wrapped up in a mystery adventure.  Well done!  This is also a great romance.  Caroline and Oliver are just perfect for one another and it is great fun to go through their relationship with them.  Get ready for a very interesting read that will keep you flipping pages.
