Just when you think you’ve got this wife and motherhood thing down . . .
Your toddler expresses his inner Picasso on your freshly painted walls . . . In permanent marker.
Your 14-year-old demonstrates her newly acquired modeling skills . . . via every social network known to man.
Your husband pulls up in a new car that you can’t afford . . . and only has two seats.
Lord, have mercy. What are they thinking?
While motherhood is often a hysterical ride of pure joy, it can also hold some of the most mind-numbing, heartbreaking, and sacrificial moments of your life. In Lord, Have Mercy, popular author Ellen Miller writes to moms who could use a good laugh (and sometimes a good cry) as they live through the trials and triumphs of parenting in the 21st century. All-too-real, always honest, and often hilarious, each devotional is filled with personal stories to remind you that God is with you in both the big and small moments of motherhood—especially when you’re on your last nerve!
