Heart of My Heart by Kristin Armstrong

365 Reflections on the Magnitude and Meaning of Motherhood, A Devotional

Whether God is using Kristin to raise children or the children to grow Kristin, He is present in every moment and every page. This warm, real, and insightful devotional celebrates the journey of growth mothers take with their children. Since their births, Kristin realized she has "discovered more about myself and my God in the pursuit of discovering my children." Each entry in this 365-day devotional contains a Bible verse and a personal reflection from Kristin. It is on this intimate, daily walk that mothers can gain the courage to rely on God and emerge as a better woman.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Kristin Armstrong was married to cyclist Lance Armstrong for five years, raising their three children while living in France and Spain. She is the author of a children's book, Lance Armstrong: The Race of His Life, and a contributing editor for Runner's World magazine. Kristin is passionate about her Christian faith, her family, her friends, and her career. She speaks French and Spanish, is a marathon runner, and enjoys cooking, reading, painting, and traveling. Kristin now lives in Austin, Texas, with her family--her son, Luke, and twin daughters, Grace and Isabelle.

MY REVIEW

Heart of My Heart is a great collection of daily devotionals written by a young mother, and Kristen Armstrong writes about topics that mothers of all ages can relate to. Some of her topics are geared for a younger mother, but I thoroughly enjoyed the book too. As an older mother, step-mother, mother-in-law, and grandma to eleven, there was still plenty in this book for me too.

We all know how busy life can be when we are blessed with little ones to take care of, and it is oftentimes very hard to find a few minutes of alone time for our personal devotions. This book is a great place to start, and each devotional is one page long with a scripture verse that ties into the topic of the day.

Mothers of all ages will enjoy this devotional book!

Thank you to Hachette Books for providing a complimentary copy of this book for the purpose of review.
