Pressing Pause

Ehman, Karen. Schwenk, Ruth. Pressing Pause: 100 Quiet Moments For Moms To Meet With Jesus. Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan Publishing. 2016.


Being instructed to press pause from the crazy, intense, frazzled life of motherhood and take a deep breath while immersing in the calm, sweet and loving time with Jesus, authors Karen Ehman and Ruth Schwenk help with that transition. Through personal stories, encouraging statements, an appropriate prayer and several questions for self- reflection, Pressing Pause understands and meets moms right where and when Jesus is needed most…

Alternating between the two authors with similar yet different styles, I liked the difference in writing while the book stayed true to the theme presented by the included scripture for each devotion. Able to read each 3-4 page devotion in a brief setting, it was perfect for a quick pick-me-up when needed. The follow-up questions were thought-provoking and direct. I especially liked the eBook directions provided which correlated and made responses easily recordable. (That was the first time I had encountered that and they were easy to follow too!)  As experienced writers and speakers, the collaboration was excellent and as a result, might just make the perfect Mother’s Day gift for that special mom!
