Having a newborn is an exciting time!
But it’s also a hard time spiritually.
Most new moms (whether first-time moms or seventh-time moms, like me) don’t have tons of time to do those elaborate devotionals like we did pre-baby.
So, how do you have a quiet time when you have a new baby?
Honestly, this depends on what phase of life you are in.
If you have older children, this might mean you ask them for help so you can get some alone time.
If you only have one baby, Bible time can happen during baby’s naptime.
If you have a handful of toddlers…well, there are also those moments when you go to the bathroom…hopefully alone!
There is not a “one-size-fits-all” solution, but having daily (or at least weekly) time along with the Lord is essential to maintaining your sanity as a new mom.
As I was pregnant with my sixth baby, I wrote a book called, Thriving the First Days of Becoming Mommy.
It’s devotional that you can read in those quick moments you have in the pickup line at school, as you wait for groceries to be loaded into your car (hello, Walmart Grocery!) or…yes, even on the potty.
Every single entry is only 300 words, but packed FULL of meaning.
If you are a new mom (or know of one) pick up your copy for only $2.99.
And, it’s not really just for new moms…it’s useful for ANY MOM that needs a quick spiritual pick me up!
This little book functions as a gateway back into the swing of having a quiet time with the Lord, despite being busy with a new baby.
