Fostering Feelings: A Devotional Guide to Navigating the Ups and Downs of Foster Parenting
The last 30 day with this book have been amazing. Though the book is written for parents who are in the throws of fostering, Emily touches the hearts of all those who parent in any situation.
No matter where you are in the parenting journey, this book will open your eyes to your own children’s needs and ground you in your relationship with your own heavenly Father.
In this book, Emily has created 30 devotionals that begin with a Bible reading selection and then highlights one verse. She then corroborates this verse to her journey in fostering and her personal growth in this area. It is raw and real and does not allow you to think that this is going to be a bed of roses.

I am very excited that I am getting a little more reading in each day. I was so busy there for a little while that I was not able to get the time. Reading for me is very relaxing and gives me a much needed break. I love getting to explore new worlds that amazing authors are able to come up with. Wow, at some people’s imagination!

So we have to retire to the bedroom pretty early. I sit back enjoy some popcorn and read! Continue reading
