Hi sweet moms! Stephanie Shott here. I’m popping in to introduce you to my friend, Carey Scott. I met her a couple years ago at She Speaks and instantly was drawn to her heart for God and her heart for God’s girls. Carey is the real deal. And I’m so excited to have her as a guest today!
Here at The M.O.M. Initiative, we want to provide a list of M.O.M. approved resources that we know will minister to moms in every area of their lives.
Today, we are blessed to have our friend, Carey Scott, share about her book, Raising Godly Kids. It’s definitely a book we recommend! After you read her post here at The M.O.M. Initiative, pop over and check out her site and be sure to get her book, Raising Godly Kids. You’ll be glad you did!
By our guest: Carey Scott
Motherhood challenges me on every level. It can be the most fulfilling journey one day, and then send me to levels of insanity I
never knew existed the next. Being a mom is a wild ride… but one I wouldn’t give up for anything. My children teach me to love more… encourage better… forgive faster. I’m humbled that even though God knows me… stumbles, fumbles, and all… He has trusted me with them – anyway.
My devotional book, “Raising Godly Kids,” is a labor of love. It’s really a documentation of the things God’s been showing me about raising my son and daughter. I’ve learned a lot over these past 10 years, like being more intentional with my actions, more involved with my prayers, and more inspirational with my words.
I chose to include these 34 devotionals in my book because I wanted to share this journey with other moms who needed encouragement that who they are and what they are doing… mattered. I wanted to equip moms with practical, everyday ways they can raise their kids to love God even in a world that challenges their faith at every turn. And I wanted to remind moms that God doesn’t expect us to be perfect parents… just pliable, purposeful and prayerful ones.
Whether a new mom or a mom of older kids, this book will meet women where they are in their parenting journey. It’s relevant for today’s mothers who want to do all they can to set their kids up to see God in every area of their lives. And it will help secure a long legacy of unshakable faith.”
