Welcome to the GRIT AND GRACE Blog Tour

About the BookHang in There, Mama!
For those moments when you think you’ll never live up to the Supermoms around you—when you’re elbow deep in the grind of diapers and laundry and peanut butter sandwiches—you need a good dose of Grit and Grace.

This refreshing collection of 90 daily devotions comes from two moms who’ve found themselves face-to-the-floor in need of encouragement and now offer it to you. Through humor and vulnerability, these short messages of truth remove the filters of perfection clouding your vision and bring clarity to your purpose as a mom. As you read the Scripture and prayer that accompany each day’s message, you’ll discover more fully who you are in Christ and how to raise your children to reflect His love to the world.

In giving yourself grace, you will find you have even more grace to give from the One who is present in your life right now and in every moment.   


I really enjoy devotionals because there is always something God has waiting for me to read. I was so excited when I found out for the first time that I was pregnant. Then reality hit and all these crazy things started running through my head. This book is a wonderful tool to use to encourage mothers as they find their way through motherhood.

I really like the chapter about "Hope in a Hopeless place." I had a similar scary moment with my youngest son. He started having seizures and we rushed him to the hospital. They then transferred him by ambulance to the Children's hospital. We found out after five days in ICU that he had an allergic reaction to mosquito bites. During that time I was so scared I couldn't even think straight. I did learn a valuable lesson through this experience. God is in control and I needed to trust Him with my children.

We can learn many things from our children and one of those is how much faith they have when sometimes we can't even have enough faith to believe our circumstances are not to big for God. Another chapter I liked was called, "Comparison versus Completeness." This chapter really hit home for me. I have always felt inadequate as a mom and see how other women make motherhood look easy. I found myself always tired and disorganized. This chapter reminded me that we are all different . We have been designed by God to be uniquely us. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses .  When we learn to focus on or gifts and talents then, " We will experience a peace that surpasses all understanding that will guard your heart and mind."

I received a copy of this book from the authors and Read with Audra blogging program.


Suzanne Hadley Gosselin and Gretta Kennedy first met as roommates at Multnomah University. They are quick to admit they did not like each other when they first met due to opposite personalities. However, they worked out their differences and became best friends who roomed together for all four years of college. Two decades later, during a phone conversation, they realized God was laying on their hearts the desire to write a devotional for moms of young children to encourage and strengthen them in their role as mothers. It was then the idea for Grit & Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms was born.
