Hope Unfolding: Grace-filled Truth For The Momma's Heart by Becky Thompson Review

Title: Hope Unfolding: Grace-Filled Truth For The Momma's Heart
Author: Becky Thompson
Back Cover:
God’s love, plans, and promises for you are forever unfolding.
I get it, Momma. I totally get it.Every day you wake up and try your very best. You love, give, and pour out your life for the ones who call you Momma. But no matter how much you offer, there are still days you feel as though you come up short. You worry, Am I loving these babies enough? Is this ever going to get easier? Why does it seem like I am the only one who cannot balance it all? 
Sometimes, we just need hope (and maybe a long uninterrupted nap). We need someone to help tune our hearts to the voice of the Father and to remind us that He has not forgotten about us.In Hope Unfolding, Becky Thompson is a friend who reminds you that you aren’t alone, and that God is still writing your story. She guides you to encounter the Truth of God’s presence that not only fuels you with strength, but also a fresh confidence. And beyond gaining faith that tomorrow could be different, you find hope and purpose where you are standing today.

Talk about diving into a novel where you meet your new best friend.... Hope Unfolding by Becky Thompson is just that! I don't know if it's just because the season of my life right now, or if it's like this for everyone... but I have to say I LOVED this book. I was hooked from the first chapter. Now, I have never heard of Becky Thompson or her blog Scissortail Silk before. From reading the book, you find out that she started out as a mommy fashion blogger! How cool is that. I love the community of bloggers out there, especcially if it brings a person like Becky who has such a great message to share!

She speaks to moms right where we are. She has been there before and has gotten through it! I started reading this book right before going to see the movie Bad Moms. I have say that this book put the message from Bad Moms into a better "package". I say it this way to point out that we need to extend the grace and the hope that God gives us to other mother's around us. This book is the tool to extend that grace and hope to you. Becky goes through her personal life and situations, relates them back to God and shows you how to apply it to your life.
At the end of each chapter are "Let's Talk" sections. I loved these because they opened up a channel for journaling, which is a new thing for me. I was able to really delve into myself, and take that time to discover a new facet of me. Then she would pray in "Let's Pray", and I loved these because she was praying with you. The whole book is like a private journal from Becky Thompson, that she wrote just for you. I love it when books feel so personalized.

It really spoke to me where I am in my life right now (with my 5 year old starting kindergarten and my 7 month old destroying my house!). She inspired me and kept me in the word of God. I would highly recommend this to any mom who feels like a "Bad Mom". This book really lays out the kind of hope and grace that God extends to us.
