Overview

Mothering small children is exhausting and mind-numbing work. Just finding time to get dressed each day can be a challenge. So how can you possibly find time for God?

Your need for God may be greatest at this time of life more than any other. You need God's wisdom, his guidance, and--most of all--his peace. You need to find ways to hear his still, small voice amid the whirlwind of diapers and feedings, first steps and first words, sore throats and skinned knees, playmates, broken toys, birthdays, big questions, and nightmares. In this book Keri Kent offers you encouragement and ideas from one who has been--and still is--in the middle of mothering twenty-four hours each day.

Here you'll find a welcome companion on your daily quest to seek God and bring his peace into your heart and home.

Editorial Reviews

Theresa Grosh
"Rare is the book I would call 'life-changing,' but God's Whisper in a Mother's Chaos qualifies for me. I remember the exact moment when I was reading the chapter on guilt and realized that all those little, seemingly insignificant things that I do for my family--things that no one notices or even knows about--matter to God. And rather than condemning me because I can't find thirty minutes every day for a quiet time, God is teaching me how to grow closer to him, i.e., how to be more like Jesus, in the midst of the chaos that is my life. I've a long way to go, but I have begun to look for Jesus in my daily life rather than see my responsibilities as a hindrance to my spiritual growth."

    Kent's honesty doesn't whisper, it shouts!

    A little too close to home? Perhaps. But the bare bones candor Keri Wyatt Kent uses in this book makes it one all 'real' mothers can relate to. In an age of car pooling, fast-tracking kids and Supermoms, this book reminds us that we will always come up short unless we are letting God whisper to us of His acceptance. Kent gives practical examples of failing to listen, ensuing consequences and how to stop and really hear the soft music of God's voice in the midst of motherloads of chaos.

    Encouragement for mothers

    I want to tell people why I wrote this book. I wrote it when my children were one and three, so it's a realistic book about growing spiritually in the midst of a season of life when you don't seem to have a minute to yourself. If you long to grow spiritually but need some practical help and encouragement, this book is for you. It's a short book with short, easy to read chapters, but I hope it will make you think. After you read it, please post a review!
