Espresso for Your Spirit: Hope and Humor for Pooped-Out Parents by Pam Vredevelt is a book that really peaked my interest. I can relate because I sometimes almost daily find myself just completely worn out and drained. Having two kids under the age of three can do that more often than not.
Please note this is not a self help book or a how to guide. It’s basically a book written to lift the spirit of parents in those moments when we find we need a little encouragement to make it through the rest of the day.
In this title you’ll find 28 mini chapters that can be read in about 10-15 minutes tops. Through out the chapters you’ll be whisked away into a personal stories from the author whom is a mother of three children of her own. She also features stories from others that she ‘encountered in her life. I really enjoyed her story telling skills as they really keep you captured delivering story after story of hope and humor.
This book is written for individual reading and also for group discussion. I for one really enjoyed the question prompts near the end of the book! The questions really make you think about issues and goals! This book is full of great stories, encouraging scripture from the Bible, and quotes from well known figures. It’s just the pick me up that I personally needed and I’m sure other parents will enjoy as well.
Espresso for Your Spirit: Hope and Humor for Pooped-Out Parents would make a wonderful gift to pass along to a friend or keep for yourself! It’s available on multiple e-reader formats and in hardcover making it the perfect little coffee table book. It’s size also allows for it to easily slip into your bag or glove box for those times when you need it the most.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. The above opinions are my own.
