Quick and easy grab devotional book that goes straight to the heart! Sep 15, 2008
From a mother of six this author made me cry/laugh while also making me reliving it to my own experiences at home. It made me "see" God throughout my busy day and know that God is right with me all the way! What an encouraging book!!
I am not alone Sep 11, 2008
Life Beyond Laundry written by Kristen Cottingham is an excellent devotional book for busy moms. Kristen has captured what it truly means to "discover the miraculous in the mundane". Her stories resonate what each one of us feels in the day to day routine of life. Her insights into those mundane moments of our days though, are definitely a gift from God. She has taken those insightful moments, applied scriptural reference to them and allowed us to grasp deeper spiritual meaning, which can be applied to our Christian walk. Kristen gives thought-provoking ideas in the Sort-It-Out section at the end of each chapter to help you dwell on the spiritual truth gleaned from each story. Life Beyond Laundry is humorous, inspiring and a must read.
Feeling stuck in the spin cycle? Try this little gem! Sep 10, 2008
What woman doesn't feel lost in the laundry at some point in her life? Take a break while you're trying to find those lost socks and spend a few moments seeing God in the everyday through Kristen's eyes and heart. Short chapters, relevant scripture and thoughtful wrap-up questions help you "sort it out" in a few quiet minutes (between cycles even!) a day. I am always on the look out for that next little devotional book that fits in my day plus gives me a lift and something to ponder. This is it!
Excellent book for all ages Aug 30, 2008
The author has a real knack for sharing experiences from her everyday life to bring home spiritual truths. The "sort it out" section after each topic encourages the reader to look within while giving encouragement and inspiration. I'll never look at my "mundane" laundry the same. A fantastic book!
