Description

What and who should get the best of us?
And why is it so enticing to choose lesser things instead of lasting things?

As moms we know the magnetic pull to steer away from what's important and choose what feels irresistible in the moment. In Shiny Things, Amanda Bacon and Anne-Renee Gumley bring to light the distractions moms face every day.

Honoring God and loving our families are our highest priority, but sometimes we need help keeping them there. For all of us who find ourselves caught in the cycle of distraction but are looking for a way out, Shiny Things will help us:

  • identify the threat of distractions so we can learn to live with intention
  • resist the pull to be interrupted by non-essentials and focus on God and our priority people
  • purpose to live free from distraction with hearts turned Godward in all we do

It's never too late to take hold of what's most important. Today's a great day to start.
