Devoted: Great Men and Their Godly Moms Reviews

    Every single mom needs to go get this book immediately! I know I will listen through this many more times in the years ahead. Charlie?s takes a look at great men through out history and their godly mothers who came before them. He?s not offering a glib answer to parenthood ques...

    Loved this little book. Recommended for dads as well as moms, and sons and daughters alike. ...

    When I picked up this book, I expected it to be good, but it is much better! I recommend all the tired, weary, and sometimes helpless moms (which is all moms at least at some point in our lives) to read this short book. Challies does an excellent job of giving us enough of the great me...

    I really should have made this more like a devotional reading, taking one example from history at a time and savoring it. But I couldn?t. I was so hungry to be encouraged by the examples in this book and to be set aright by the actual experiences of others who have loved more challen...

    I was so encouraged, challenged, and convicted throughout this short book by the wonderful examples of all the godly mothers that the author discusses. As a mom of boys it really spoke to me, though it certainly is not limited to moms of only boys. I plan on reading it multiple times t...

    As a mom of 3 boys, I found this book to be amazingly encouraging as to the influence a godly mother can have on her sons. I?m going to recommend this book to every boy-Mom I know. ...

    This was a short, easy read. While it features men from all different upbringings and backgrounds, the theme of a Mother?s perseverance in prayer, steadfast love for her children, and quiet trust in the Lord is laced throughout the book. Each story was an inspiration to me to continu...

    Tim Challies? latest book, which celebrates mothers who were used to shape the men who changed the world, began as a series of articles he wrote on his book. Rebecca Stark and Melissa Edgington added helpful ?Questions for Reflection? for each chapter, and Edgington also adds ?...

    This book is such a positive encouragement to any mom with a son. I read this book very slowly, trying to glean all the wisdom I could from the examples of these amazing mothers! I love how Tim Challies ended each chapter with ?a mother?s reflection? and then application question...

    This was a great quick read. Challies looks at a number of Christian mothers of sons who impacted the world for Christ. Each story reveals a different facet of the ministry of motherhood and the varying dynamics such as one with a drunken abusive husband, a single mom, and even an athe...

    I love it when a friend recommends a book and it encourages me deeply. When it happens, I give both my friend AND the author credit for improving my reading life, and in this case, my mothering life. Devoted is a short, concentrated, call to faithful, ordinary, persistent raising of ch...

    So encouraging! When going through a rough patch with your kids, it can be so encouraging to see that perseverance pays off, faithfulness bears fruit, and simple godly living makes a difference, even if you can't see it immediately. This little book give that encouragement and hope....

    I really liked the short vignettes style of this book. It was easy to read and the Tim Challies stories are interesting. I gave this book three stars, because of the Mother's Reflections sections of each chapter. They felt "should-ish" and guilt-inducing. And were unnecessary, because ...

    If you?re the mother of a son, this book is a MUST read. If you know a mom of a boy, do her a favor and gift her this book. It?s one that I personally will read again and again. So very inspiring and encouraging to see how these eleven moms were diligent to teach, train and pray fo...

    Great book! Lots of encouragement as a mom, not only in continuing to do what we do, pray and teach scripture. As well as encouragement to step it up and pray more and cultivate a love for scripture more! Only bad thing is that the audible version was not great. The reader was mech...

    Meh. Bland boring writing devoid of almost anything interesting about these amazing women. Save your money. ...

    Excellent. Wonderful encouragement to Moms of all ages!! Trust in God. Stay in the Word. Pray for your children! ...

    This was a really encouraging and fairly quick read for a mother in the throes of young boyhood. ...

    I loved this book. Short, but rich with inspiration. I was brought to tears as I identified with the struggles and the heart work of some of these mothers. It has inspired me to respond to these struggles as they did going forward, by God?s grace. I think this will be my new go-to gi...

    This book is such a positive encouragement to any mom with a son. I read this book very slowly, trying to glean all the wisdom I could from the examples of these amazing mothers! I love how Tim Challies ended each chapter with ?a mother?s reflection? and then application question...

    This was a great quick read. Challies looks at a number of Christian mothers of sons who impacted the world for Christ. Each story reveals a different facet of the ministry of motherhood and the varying dynamics such as one with a drunken abusive husband, a single mom, and even an athe...

    I love it when a friend recommends a book and it encourages me deeply. When it happens, I give both my friend AND the author credit for improving my reading life, and in this case, my mothering life. Devoted is a short, concentrated, call to faithful, ordinary, persistent raising of ch...

    So encouraging! When going through a rough patch with your kids, it can be so encouraging to see that perseverance pays off, faithfulness bears fruit, and simple godly living makes a difference, even if you can't see it immediately. This little book give that encouragement and hope....

    When I picked up this book, I expected it to be good, but it is much better! I recommend all the tired, weary, and sometimes helpless moms (which is all moms at least at some point in our lives) to read this short book. Challies does an excellent job of giving us enough of the great me...

    I really should have made this more like a devotional reading, taking one example from history at a time and savoring it. But I couldn?t. I was so hungry to be encouraged by the examples in this book and to be set aright by the actual experiences of others who have loved more challen...

    I was so encouraged, challenged, and convicted throughout this short book by the wonderful examples of all the godly mothers that the author discusses. As a mom of boys it really spoke to me, though it certainly is not limited to moms of only boys. I plan on reading it multiple times t...
