A note from the author:
“Today, 80 percent of schools in America have a cheerleading squad. In fact, according to current statistics, there are 1.2 million cheerleaders ages 6-11 in the United States, and another 1.6 million ages 12-17. Cheerleading has been called the fastest-growing sport in the U.S., and it's easy to see why. With the addition of All-Star cheer squads, girls are now able to showcase their athletic ability, showmanship, and spirit in All-Star cheer competitions, as well as support their home team in traditional game settings. More and more girls are becoming cheerleaders!
“Media moguls have picked up on this growing subculture of cheerleaders, which is obvious by the success of such reality shows: “Cheerleader Nation,” “Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team” and “Cheer Stars” to name a few.
“Pick up a copy of Get Your Spirit On! and begin your 40-week journey. Walk closer with God and cheer up others with the Good News of Christ!”
When women take on the role of mom, they take on a hundred other titles as well: healer, comforter, chef, teacher, cheerleader--and less flattering jobs such as disciplinarian, ruiner of fun times, and chief worrier. In the middle of juggling all those roles, finding room to spend time alone seeking God can seem insurmountable.
Moms Michelle Medlock Adams and Bethany Jett understand the struggles--and the joys. They've pulled together their own experiences with the crazy world of parenting as well as the most requested, most talked about topics on mommy blogs. Their research nailed down what moms really want to talk about.
They Call Me Mom is a lighthearted, transparent take on the real-life ups and downs mothers face through all stages of parenting. Whether mom just brought home her first baby or she has several kids and zero time, she'll find relatable words and helpful encouragement in these pages. And with one devotion for every week of the year, it's easy to fit in a few minutes with God in the middle of a full parenting life.
In the story of Mary and Martha, Jesus praises Mary for sitting at His feet and listening to Him. The takeaway isn't to not serve others. Rather, it is to not let the worries of this world steal our joy. Children will be encouraged to spend time with Jesus every day!
