MOMS! Pressing Pause devotion now available! By Karen Ehman & Ruth Schwenk

I am so excited to be releasing my 9th book today! Pressing Pause: 100 Quiet Moments for Moms to Meet with Jesus is a devotional book for moms. Once upon a time, just last spring, this is what the idea looked like:

The original page from my writing idea notebook where I began to sketch out the verses for the devotions in the book.

I coauthored this book with my friend Ruth Schwenk from The Better Mom. Here is the description:


Kids bickering? Schedule jam-packed? Dishes and laundry both piled up high? Perhaps it’s time you pressed pause.

Whether you’re juggling a career, kids’ schedules, and church commitments or you’re covered in spit-up and anxious about what the next eighteen years might hold, you can carve out a few quiet moments to rejuvenate your spirit.

Pressing Pause offers you a calm way to start your day, to refresh yourself in Jesus and drink deeply of His presence so that you are ready to pour out love, time, and energy into the people who matter most to you.

These 100 encouraging devotions for moms will help you begin each day with scripture, drawing on God’s power, ingesting His Word, and learning practical ways to love and serve more like His son.

Just a few minutes each day can help you center your heart and mind on what God has for you as His beloved daughter. So resist the rush. Halt the hustle. Press pause and find some calm in the chaos.

  • I am a single mom of a 17 year old daughter and 16 year old son. After being married for 14 1/2 years it was quite a shock to start all over again as a family of three! God has been faithful to always provide but it hasn’t always been an easy road. Teenagers are challenging enough with both parents involved but it is stressful and even more challenging to be the sole provider for them (with the exception of a small monthly child support). As my oldest will turn 18 this summer and be going to college (7 miles away) this fall I am soon going to be facing a new challenge. Empty nest (whether she lives in the dorms or continues to live at home) it will be different as she embarks on this new phase of her life. Exciting and a little scary for us both! I could really use this book as a daily phase button in my life!
    I enjoy your blogs and daily devotionals! Continue to encourage women as God leads you!
