Wonderful devotional. This is a great way to start or end your day. It really helps take the anxiety off. Even if just for a little while.

Worry Less, Pray More Devotions for moms is a great quick devotion that can be done in the morning when you are waking up, or before bed. I am a mom of 4, with two kids still at home and I hit the ground running from the moment I get up until the moment I go to sleep. This contains 180 readings and prayers designed to help alleviate your worries as you learn to live in the peace of the Almighty God. Thank you to NetGalley for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.

This book was everything I wanted it to be. It had me turned pages without even realizing. It was so good!

I was drawn to this book by the title, who doesn’t want to worry less and pray more?? But felt really let down by the softness of the devotions. I didn’t feel very guided in prayer, like I’d hoped, and felt that each day I was just being told to pray, rather than being prayed with. 
I am sure that this book will help a lot of people, it just wasn’t for me or what I was after at the time.
Thank you NetGalley, the publisher and author for a copy of this book.

As a woman who struggles with anxiety, this book was very much needed. The encouragement I found in it’s pages dealt helped to calm my anxious mind and heart. And best of all, it points to the One in who we find perfect peace. I recommend this book to women who are stressed, anxious, or overwhelmed with this life and need help getting things into perspective and refocusing in what matters.

I love all the devotionals by Maltese and this is no different.  She has a way of speaking to all moms in varying seasons of life.  I love the length of the devotions and how they always seem to be so relevant to current happenings in my season of life.  Great gift for moms of all seasons.

Donna Maltese follows the same format as a lot of the other devotionals I have read--pretty floral pages, containing a bible verse and a blurb below it, stating how this verse will help their day/life.  

Although the format may match others, this one is a one of the better devotionals I have seen.  Many other devotionals pretend everyone is instantly forgiven, no matter the acts, or lack of faith and prayer--just because you were born.  Worry Less, Pray More is not like this.  This book is set apart due to the excellent factual writing. There are constant reminders to include God in the reader's life daily.  Interpretations of the Bible verses bring facts to present day struggles and the answers for the struggles are through prayer, forgiveness, and daily devotion to God.  

If you are choosing between the array of women's devotionals and don't know how to choose, Inscriptions Books recommend Worry Less, Pray More.

Thank you, Barbour Publishing, for the advance reading copy.

This prayer collection for the busy moms is a must have to give them comfort at the end of each day. Nobody actually understand how busy moms are and how crazy life can get. There should be something comforting when things go crazy (which is almost everyday we know!).

The book is so beautiful. The pages are colourful and so pretty.

Gift yourself this book or get this book for a certain mom who needs some TLC everyday!

Doesn't every mom need to worry less and pray more? Each day includes 1-2 verses, commentary, and a prayer. Scriptures used are from a variety of translations/paraphrases from ESV to MSG. Reading this each day wouldn't take much time at all as there's one page per day.
*I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my honest review.

As a mom it is hard to know what is going right or wrong. Am I setting the right example? Am I leading them in the right direction? This devotional helped put me in the right mind set. It helped guide me in the direction I needed to be if I wasn't there. It's ok not to have all the answers. We get lost in motherhood, but this devotional can help you along the way and bring you back to God. 

The end of the devotion includes a scripture index easy reference. 

Thank you NetGalley and Barbour Publishing, Inc. for the opportunity to read and review this book.
