The first weeks of your baby's life can be overwhelming. You're exhausted. The house is a mess. You haven't been outside in days ? You wonder how in your wildest imagination you ever thought you were prepared for this thing called motherhood. Will your life ever be "normal" again?

Well, just remember that God is even more concerned with your every need than you are with your baby's. Imagine that! He longs to take you in His arms and give you peace and comfort.

A perfect gift for any new mother, Forty Days And Forty Nights is a book of 40 simple, affirming devotions especially created to provide support and spiritual solace in those dizzying first weeks. As a young mother herself, Michelle Waters knows the emotional roller-coaster you're on -- and her brief meditations, each accompanied by a verse or two of scripture and a prayer, will touch your heart and bring a smile to your face.

So take a few quiet moments alone with God today and rest in the shelter of His wings. You'll be refreshed by His word and restored by His Spirit!

This is a powerful little book for women. Michelle Waters has done a beautiful job of capturing the spirit of being a new mom. It will be helpful to women who are both celebrating and struggling with all the issues and aspects of new parenthood.
