More for Mom will encourage women to stop believing the lie that more is needed from them, and start living with the truth that more is available for them.

With real-life talk, humor and convicting biblical truths, Kristin Funston helps hard working mamas to look at each day and each facet of their life to discover what happens when they believe God has more for them than what they think the world needs from them.

And what He has available is a whole and holy life, just waiting to be claimed–a salvation and day-to-day reality complete just as it is. The pieces of each mom’s life–the work life, mom life, social life, etc.–are mended together through Christ to complete her one whole life, set apart because of Him.

This book is a stepping stone to help working mothers reset their spiritual and emotional health, habits, and relationship with God. There are performance pressures at work, home, and mind-sets that affect a mom’s ability to feel complete and live more closely aligned with God. This book includes the beginning steps for moms to walk in wholeness and holiness by asking God for more.

With a passion for writing, Kristin Funston encourages women in a way that is relatable and practical, with a healthy dose of humor. She has a master’s degree in Communication Studies from New Mexico State University. She is a member and employee of Hope Presbyterian Church and works as the Marriage and Family Coordinator and a leader in the women’s ministry. She is also a regular contributor to multiple blogs including The Better Mom, City Moms Blog, TODAY Parenting, and Scary Mommy. Funston resides outside of Memphis, TN with her husband and three daughters.

Anyone who says motherhood is easy all the time is either lying... or well, they're not quite human! Truly, that is the only explanation possible that I can think of. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVE my kids and love being a mom. I wouldn't trade it for the world. Still, motherhood is far from a walk in the park (unless we're talking- as the memes say- Jurassic Park that is!). It can be overwhelming, exhausting...and can seem like it's draining us completely until we have nothing left to give. And let's be honest, as moms we are givers--- constantly doing so much for everyone, leaving nothing for ourselves. But we need MORE for us. And that more that we need? Jesus!

This book is a must read for every worn out mom. It is written in a way that truly meets us right where we are--- no matter the stage in motherhood, there is something to be gained from these thoughtful words of wisdom and scripture. The tips and the idea behind the book were fantastic, but more than anything the execution was perfect. I love Kristin's writing style. She's humorous and down to earth, but still very thoughtful and scripture driven. It's like sitting down with a good friend and chatting about the ups and downs of motherhood...but it's not just any ol' friend, but a friend well versed in scriptures and how we can apply it to our lives as mothers. Don't we all need a friend like that?

There are any books about motherhood out there--- and even many books about Christian motherhood at that- but I must say that this is the most refreshing I've read in some time. It truly seemed to say so much that I needed to hear- and I'm sure many others will feel the same. I would certainly recommend it to any mom who needs a little support and clarity on this motherhood journey.

'More For Mom' is available at your favorite Christian book retailers.
