Mama Needs A Time Out by Heather Riggleman


Need a time-out from your kids and a moment or two with God?

Filled with mirth and encouragement, this inspirational devotional leads you through the names of God as you march through the trenches of motherhood.

These short devotions and life stories, told in Heather’s “been-there-done-that” voice will help you laugh at life’s most embarrassing moments, remember that God is with you in the midst of your worst moments, and help you put things back into some sort of perspective.

Doesn’t every mom, the sleep-deprived, squabbling-refereeing, hormone-wacked, women that we are, need a time-out now and then? This book might be the next best thing. Step off the mommy treadmill for some encouragement and spiritual refreshment.

Heather Riggleman lives in Nebraska with her three children and husband. When she isn’t writing about her latest mothering experience, you can find her speaking to mom’s groups all across her grand state of Nebraska. She also has something new to offer her readers. With a few of her friends, Heather is launching a new online talk show geared for women:

“Feeling worn out, unseen, unappreciated, overwhelmed? Heather Riggleman writes with understanding, a touch of humor, and a lot of grace. Her words lifted my eyes to the Father God who sees and loves me, and lifted my heart with our common connection as moms. I highly recommend this book!”

Young moms are short on time, yet desperate for encouragement.
