I absolutely adored Lutheran author Emily Cook‘s Tend to Me: Devotions for Mothers. It’s set up with brief little devotions followed with a prayer and some additional questions & Bible passages for further reflection. I liked them so well, I read several at a time, almost gulping them down. 🙂

Tend to Me: Devotions for Mothers
Filed under Reviews
Maybe one of you can help me out. I’ve been thinking about Martin Luther saying that the office of marriage itself has something of a power, like a draw toward good. A person might look at a wedding ring and remember he or she should be faithful. That sort of thing. What I wonder is whether there is a parallel in parenting. On one hand, I believe a child naturally elicits love. Can the love be rejected? Yes. But I think parenthood likewise inspires love, even if that love can be rejected. Can you think of any quotes or thoughts about such a vocational office pull?

Look what I got in the mail! Dear Mother, a set of devotions for new mothers commissioned by LWML, is now in print. I think it will be available for purchase at the LWML National Convention this summer in Albuquerque. Then at LWML vendor tables after that. 🙂
