I do not always have time to read, but with this book, I was able to read quickly. I found myself laughing out loud to things I could completely relate. I recommend this book to all moms, new or have been one "awhile."

Great devotional book, I am a new mother and it's given me some good scripture references and ways to go to God for our problems.

I recently received Lorilee Craker's book, Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet, as a freebie through my membership in MOPS (Mothers of Pre Schoolers.) I had thrown it on my nightstand, along with the 50 other good books I had planned to (hopefully) get to before my young children graduated from college.

However, on one of those days where I wanted something to read that fell somewhere between People Magazine and "War and Peace", Craker's book fit the bill beautifully (and then some.) It quickly turned into one of those "I'll-read-just-one-more-chapter-then-go-to-bed" books for me!

If you've read any version of the "Chicken Soup for the (Fill in the Blank's) Soul" series, you'll be familiar with the format. Quick, enjoyable vignettes that can be read individually, or, time permitting, in one long sitting. "Sixty mini retreats for a mom's soul" is how the content is presented, and retreats they are. If you're a mom in your mid to late 30's, you'll recognize many 1980's cultural references (the advent of "Friday Night Videos", and pretty boy glam band "Stryper", to name a few) that pepper Craker's writing. Throw in a healthy dose of parenting and friendship anecdotes and you will find yourself chuckling out loud. These are real world laughs that Paris Hilton's Hollywood antics in "People" cannot provide!

What sets this book apart are the gentle mentions of and parallels to Scripture in every retreat. If you're looking for a Bible Study curriculum with in-depth analysis, cross-references of different Biblical translations, and a body of work that's heavy on Christian theology...keep looking. This isn't it. It's not supposed to be. But if you are looking for a gift (even for yourself) for that friend who could use a little uplifting "Mommy Time" reading break, would appreciate the musings of a Midwestern mom of three, and can identify with the "that-could-be-me!" stories, with a just a splash of Scripture, this is it. Get your hands on "Just Give Me a Little Piece of Quiet", head to the tub, and go on retreat!
