Many women experience a drastic decline in their reading life once they become moms. And yet reading is often exactly what we need as we seek to feed our minds, grow in empathy for those around us and escape into places outside the laundry room. If you’re a mom who loves to read or who hopes to reinvigorate your reading life, check out this monthly book club exclusively for moms. We meet the last Thursday of each month, sometimes in person and sometimes online, and we read through a large variety of books. Sometimes we tackle books about motherhood, but since we're more than just "moms", we also read books that complement our entire personhood.

This month's book: "The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry" by John Mark Comer

“'Who am I becoming?' That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. Outwardly, he appeared successful. But inwardly, things weren’t pretty. So he turned to a trusted mentor for guidance and heard these words:

'Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life.'

It wasn’t the response he expected, but it was—and continues to be—the answer he needs. Too often we treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world instead of trying to pinpoint the cause. A growing number of voices are pointing at hurry, or busyness, as a root of much evil.

Within the pages of this book, you’ll find a fascinating roadmap to staying emotionally healthy and spiritually alive in the chaos of the modern world.

Any mom is welcome to participate, so invite a friend and register below.
