Overview

Behind the smiling face of so many new moms is a woman who has suddenly lost a bit of her sense of self. Many mothers of young children feel alone, isolated, and confused about their new role. They have a powerful desire to be known and loved.

Now for any mom who has ever wrestled with who she is at her core, Caryn Rivadeneira offers 52 devotions drawn from the Psalms that show women how God sees them, what he created them to do, and how he created them to be. She takes women through ten major areas of identity, weaving in stories from her own life and from the lives of other moms, showing mothers that they are valued and valuable.

The perfect gift for Mother's Day, Known and Loved will brighten a mom's day even as it deepens her faith.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Rivadeneira (Grumble Hallelujah) offers 52 short reflections on passages from the biblical Book of Psalms. The book is targeted at mothers of young children—it bears a Mothers of Preschoolers (MOPS) “seal”—who will particularly appreciate the brevity of each section, which can be consumed like a scriptural vitamin. Rivadeneira writes in a chatty, girlfriendly tone for her intended audience, although some may find it flat and/or culturally clichéd (a reference to Downton Abbey, for example). From a faith perspective, the author offers encouragement and reassurance, qualities that mothers are long on. She also unpacks what might seem like remote and time-bound biblical passages about sheep or military trumpet blasts to show their contemporary application. The book will work best as gentle Bible study for suburban mothers. Agent: Andrea Heinecke, Alive Communications. (May)
