The Busy Mom's Guide to Wisdom

by Lisa Whelchel

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In The Busy Mom’s Guide to Wisdom, author Lisa Whelchel digs into the book of Proverbs to offer a treasure trove of heavenly advice. She understands how today’s multi-tasking moms are bombarded with differing voices. Her much-needed encouragement will help women return to God’s never-changing truth.

The book contains 52 devotional chapters, allowing readers the opportunity to savor one per week. The topics relate to challenges busy moms face, such as living simply, walking with integrity, and parenting through the rough spots. Each section includes two verses from Proverbs, a short but relevant meditation, a prayer, and an application point that asks the reader to journal personal reflections.

As a mom of three teenagers trying to balance career and family, Whelchel pours her own spiritual journey into her writing. Her voice of humor and inspiration blends well with the sound biblical wisdom found in these pages.

The sturdy hardback design makes this book a wise choice for gift giving. Whelchel’s enthusiastic tone, coupled with ample journaling space make this book a unique tool to help moms grow closer to God. She writes, “By simply applying His timeless wisdom to our practical needs, we can see heaven meet earth, super join natural, and the Word come to life.” – Heather Ivester, Christian Book
