About the book: The first months and years of motherhood can be the most challenging and disorienting of your life---and faith. When you're surrounded by the happy chaos of children, how do you spend quiet time with God if the only quiet time you get is while you sleep? How can you demonstrate a solid spiritual life to your children if you don't have time to pursue one yourself?
When Julia Roller discovered that her spiritual growth had been stunted by the busyness of life with her toddler, she embarked on a yearlong journey through ten spiritual disciplines: prayer, fellowship, submission, study, simplicity, silence, worship, fasting, service, and celebration. As she focused on each discipline, she discovered practical ways to observe them---even in the chaos of her every day.

Being a mom is so rewarding, but it is also nonstop and can be extremely stressful and tiring leaving no energy for anything else including prayer and taking care of one's spiritual well-being. Julia's book "Mom Seeks God: practicing grace in the chaos" is breath of fresh air and encouragement for each and every mom. Julia is straightforward and yet has a sweet conversational tone that immediately draws the reader into the book. This is a book that is filled with ideas and encouragement for dealing with the chaos with God's help and keeping Him a part of one's daily life. What I love about this book is that it is practical and encouraging; meaning that I don't feel as if it would be a losing battle to make changes in my life. I love the tips included at the end of the chapters and look forward to implementing them.
