Soul Coffee for Moms… and a Giveaway!

Last fall, I joined in with the 30 days of blogging challenge that Emily Freeman hosts at Chatting at the Sky. I spent the month writing devotional snippets for moms and calling them Soul Coffee. I was so encouraged by some of the feedback from those posts and decided to edit the material, add some more to round out the content, and publish it all into a book.

I wrote a book. A BOOK Y’ALL. With a title page and an ISBN number and an adorable cover painted by my expat mommy friend, Priscila.

A lifelong dream was realized when I saw my book listed on Amazon last night!

Squeeeeeeeeee! (And how awesome that you can save 7 cents if you buy now! Teeheehee! Can you tell I’m giddy and excited?)

Really it’s not a long or a fancy book. It’s simply some devotional meditations to get busy, tired mommies into the pages of Scripture. Coffee to wake up their souls to the treasure of the Gospel and the Savior waiting to spend time with them each day. I pray it will remind moms of the love their God has for them, and encourage them to read the Bible each day– even if they only have a few minutes to sit down at the jelly-sticky table while the toddlers watch a cartoon, and read a verse while drinking a cup of coffee that’s been re-heated twice between serving cereal and changing diapers. Yes, moms I know your life.

You can buy Soul Coffee for Moms on Amazon (paperback or e-book), or at CreateSpace. Yippy skippy!

Because I’m super stoked, I’d like to give two copies of my book away! I’m gonna pack them up with some of my favorite goodies (think earrings and scarves!) and send them to two friends! Enter using the Rafflecopter below. Giveaway ends September 4, good luck!

  1. I drink coffee during my quiet time, maybe that is why I LOVE the title of your book! Congrats Sheila on your book and fulfilling a dream. I would love to read it 😉 I first found your blog through the “Soul Coffee for Moms” posts and was encouraged through them. Thanks!

  2. My day has not started without a cup of coffee *two spoons of coffee-mate powder creamer please* 🙂 I can’t wait to get my hands on your book! This little devotional is just what I need jump start my new morning routine!!! Now….. the tough decision…… should I wait to see if I win… or go ahead and buy one?!? hummmmm 😀 not sure I can wait that long!!!! *but would still ❤ LOVE ❤ to score a copy to gift*

  3. Hi Sheila,

    We met at Appalachian, and I think you know my husband, Doug Brown? Ever since we had our daughter, Caroline, I’ve been following your blog and have been so refreshed by your authenticity and genuine attitude towards grace during motherhood. I’m so thankful to be reminded about the beauty of finding in our identity in Christ rather than an image of “the perfect mom.” So excited to read your devotional book!

  4. Low-carbing it these days, but I still love my 2 cups of coffee every morning! However, cutting back on the super yummy sweet creamers has taken some getting used to. But what a beautiful reminder that my Jesus is sweeter than anything! I couldn’t wait, so I just had to buy a copy, but my mind is already filling with mom friends who would be so blessed by this book! Thank you, Sheila!

  5. So excited to see this! First thing in the morning I get my fav mug and drink my strong Starbucks with just a splash of milk.

  6. That is awesome Sheila! Congratulations. Definitely have to have my coffee first thing in the morning. And now with 3 kids seems like I have to have it in the afternoon too! 😉 I use sugar and usually whatever homemade creamer I have. Most of the time it is vanilla unless I have found some extra time and can make pumpkin. That’s my fave. Speaking of it is about that time of year. 🙂

  7. Congratulations on your book! You were my RA at App Heights. My favorite choice of beverage is Mt. Dew. I like the smell of coffee, but don’t care for the taste of it. 🙂
