The Power of a Positive Mom Devotional & Journal by Karol Ladd Book Review
The Power of a Positive Wife Devotional & Journal: 52 Monday Morning Motivations by Karol Ladd is great devotional for busy moms. There are 52 chapters that focus on different themes and span excerpts from the entire Bible. Each chapter has a key Scripture, mom reflection, a question to answer, a prayer to pray, choices to consider, further reading in Scripture and inspirational quotes. The chapters are set up to be done weekly so to ponder the lesson all week.
Karol adds a lot of wisdom for moms directly from Scripture, but in simple ways. I really enjoyed the format and places to journal. Her words are encouraging and strengthening, short and to the point. I thought the choices section gave great application for everyday life like "This week I will choose to speak and act in ways that reflect I am a follower of God." This book is definitely one I will enjoy working through the year and I definitely will be more positive as I apply God's Word in personal ways through Karol encouragement.
