Mom Needs Chocolate is a humorous devotional book aimed at moms. It is divided into 58 chapters, each with a funny title, of four to five pages each. The chapters being with a quote from literature and a quote from the Bible. They are followed by a reflection that generally includes a story about the author's family life. The chapters end with a section titled "Faith in Action" that has three questions related to the chapter for you to answer.
For example, chapter 46 is titled "Poxes on Those Little Foxes" and the scripture quote is from Song of Songs "Quick! Catch all the little foxes before they ruin the vineyard of your love". She compares the foxes to the small irritants in our marriages--like toilet seats left up. There is a story about putting up wallpaper and how she and her husband have learned to capitalize on their different styles rather than fight over them. The "Faith in Action" questions are:
- What is the security status of your vineyard of love?
- Name three of the "little foxes" that threaten your grapevines.
- What are some creative ways you can trap those sneaky little foxes and protect your beautiful vineyard blossoms? (A good place to start is 1 Cor. 13:4-8.)
I enjoyed this book and think most moms would.
