Overview

What do moms thirst for even more than coffee? Moms want to know they matter, that they make a difference. They want to know they are not alone in their parenting experience and that their lives have purpose. They want to see their children prosper. They want a full cup. Celeste Palermo gives moms more than a jolt of caffeine with these humorous, yet poignant, brief devotions easily read while on the run. Moms juggling cups of coffee will relate to her coffee related stories and insights on such basic needs as affirmation, purpose, good health, and eternal life. "Coffee Talk," "Common Grounds," and "A Perfect Cup" sections provide quotes, Scripture references, and interviews with coffee-drinking moms offering insight and inspiration. "Soul Sip Solutions" offer questions to encourage reflection and response. After reading The Coffee Mom's Devotional, moms will be reminded that caffeine can never sustain us, only Jesus can.
