Every day you wake up and try your very best. You love, give, and pour out your life for the ones who call you Momma. But no matter how much you offer, there are still days you feel as though you come up short. You worry,
We need someone to help tune our hearts to the voice of the Father and to remind us that He has not forgotten about us.
In Becky Thompson is a friend who reminds you that you aren’t alone, and that God is still writing your story. She guides you to encounter the Truth of God’s presence that not only fuels you with strength, but also a fresh confidence. And beyond gaining faith that tomorrow could be different, you find hope and purpose where you are standing today.
This book was such a breath of fresh air. I-like so many of you I'm certain- can be pretty hard on myself. I set these impossible standards of a perfect mom for myself that I just cannot live up to...and that can lead to disappointment. I need those reminders that I'm doing okay and that I am not alone in this. That is just what Hope Unfolding provided. Like a note from a friend, I was encouraged by a beautiful combination of real life stories and Biblical references.
While I truly loved this book, I do want to give a little warning up front, if you have recently suffered a miscarriage, this may be a tough one to read. It is not the main subject of the book, but the author does share her own experiences on the subject. Having been through that myself, I did have a bit of a hard time reading this part, but if you are able, I still highly encourage you give this book a try and just be aware upfront so that it doesn't come as a shock!
This truly is one of those books that I think all of us as moms need to read. It truly is like a conversation with a friend that will offer that gentle truth that we are good moms. That none of us are perfect all the time. And that through it all, God is there 100%!

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review. All thoughts are my own.
