Book Review: Everyday MOMents

Holding the book in my hands, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful cover. I could feel the embossed title words under my thumb. As I began reading, it was clear this perspective of taking a look at a day in a mother’s life – hour by hour – was very unique, even refreshing. I’ve actually been waiting the release of Jessica Poe‘s book, “Everyday MOMents: Discovering Christ in the Details of Motherhood,” for months!
