Help for Busy Moms by Mary May Larmoyeux

Mary and her husband, Jim, live in Little Rock, Arkansas. They have two married sons and five grandchildren (under age five). A graduate of Louisiana State University, she is committed to encouraging women with hearts for their homes.An experienced speaker for large and small groups, Mary’s messages touch the hearts of women of all ages.

She is a speaker for CLASS (Christian Leaders, Authors, & Speakers Services), founded by Florence Littauer. Mary is the author of Help for Busy Moms and the co-author of There’s No Place Like Home and FamilyLife’s Resurrection Eggs® Activity Book, Mary has written for FamilyLife, Revive Our Hearts, CareAmerica, HomeLife Magazine, and Fresh Outlook.

She is a past president of the Arkansas Pioneer Branch of the National League of American Pen Women and a co-founder of the American Christian Writers chapter at FamilyLife. She is also a member of the Society of Children Book Writers and Illustrators and American Christian Fiction Writers.

They say, “Home is where the heart is.” But with the daily grind and nightly chores, many moms find themselves caught in a constant juggling act with too much to do.

This tender book, filled with Scriptures and personal anecdotes, has 100+ time-saving ideas, dozens of mom-to-mom tips, and interviews with on-the-go women. You’ll be encouraged as you focus on your calling as a mom, and you’ll learn new ways to connect with those you love.

With personal application questions at the end of each chapter, Help for Busy Moms makes a great journal companion or group study.

This practical book will help you:

  • Make family a priority
  • Create lasting memories
  • Connect with your children
  • Maximize your time
  • Focus on God’s will for your family
  • Simplify your days
  • Live a purposeful life

This book’s great tips and touching stories contain wonderful illustrations for moms who want to live a simpler, more purposeful life. But don’t mistake this for just another how-to book. The key theme of the story is putting God and your family first. My favorite part is entitled, “From My Husband to Yours.” It’s a list of suggestions from Mary’s husband, Jim, written to guide husbands who want to help their wives.

Okay, I may be a little prejudiced: Mary happens to be one of the Alongsiders (my critique group). I happen to know that she is a sweet, lady-of-God in all situations. Her loving personality shows through this book full of practical advice to help any mother raise her children in a Christ-filled home.

Are you tired of being Mom’s taxi? Do you wonder exactly how much your children actually hear when you talk to them? Check out this book and see if Mary’s advice can help.

Be sure to check back. I’ll be posting an interview with Mary!

    Your wish is my command. I posted the interview tonight.

    Bless you for mentoring such a young woman with such a difficult journey. I know that your influence will help and your encouragement will make her road easier to travel.

    Thank you for being a constant traveler with me.
