Every day you wake up and try your very best. You love, give, and pour out your life for the ones who call you Momma. But no matter how much you offer, there are still days you feel as though you come up short. You worry, Am I loving these babies enough? Is this ever going to get easier? Why does it seem like I am the only one who cannot balance it all? Sometimes, we just need hope (and maybe a long uninterrupted nap). We need someone to help tune our hearts to the voice of the Father and to remind us that He has not forgotten about us. In Hope Unfolding, Becky Thompson is a friend who reminds you that you aren't alone, and that God is still writing your story. She guides you to encounter the Truth of God's presence that not only fuels you with strength, but also a fresh confidence. And beyond gaining faith that tomorrow could be different, you find hope and purpose where you are standing today.

Modern life can be a challenge for mothers trying to raise righteous children in a world they view as hostile to Christian values. Popular blogger Thompson offers modern Christian moms assurances that it is possible to survive, and even thrive, with the Bible as a guide for living. She insists that a godly woman doesn't just understand the presence of God in her life, but must experience and live out that presence every day: "No matter how overlooked or forgotten you believe you are, what you are doing in this season in your life has significance." Thompson surveys her own experiences and demonstrates how her realization of God's presence in her life guided and informed her journey, leading her believe it's never been a better time to raise a Christian family. Remembering the meeting between the Samaritan woman and Jesus, she writes: " knew she wasn't just in need of water to drink. She was in need of fuel for her soul." It's this inspiration that Thompson draws on to support Christian mothers, providing a wealth of fuel for women looking for guidance and direction. (Mar.)
