First Line Friday: Grit & Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms

Happy Friday!

First Line Fridays is hosted by Hoarding Books and participants share the first line from a nearby
book.

Today I'm sharing the first line from Grit & Grace: Devotions for Warrior Moms by Suzanne Hadley Gosslin and Gretta Kennedy:

"I was having one of those mornings."

I've been reading this book for over a month now. It is my go to for a short devotional thought. Highly recommend to new moms or moms of littles. My full review is available here.

What are you reading this weekend?

Have a great weekend! Happy reading!


About the Book:


Hang in There, Mama!
For those moments when you think you’ll never live up to the Supermoms around you—when you’re elbow deep in the grind of diapers and laundry and peanut butter sandwiches—you need a good dose of Grit and Grace.
This refreshing collection of 90 daily devotions comes from two moms who’ve found themselves face-to-the-floor in need of encouragement and now offer it to you. Through humor and vulnerability, these short messages of truth remove the filters of perfection clouding your vision and bring clarity to your purpose as a mom. As you read the Scripture and prayer that accompany each day’s message, you’ll discover more fully who you are in Christ and how to raise your children to reflect His love to the world.
In giving yourself grace, you will find you have even more grace to give from the One who is present in your life right now and in every moment.

  1. Happy Friday! My first line is from “Remember Me” by Marion Ueckermann:

    “Seated cross-legged on the floor of her bedroom with her two best friends, Clarise Aylward leaned forward and lit the candles on the birthday cake her mom had made for them.

  2. Happy Friday!

    Today I am sharing the first two lines from The Highest of Hopes by Susan Anne Mason on my blog: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/03/29/first-line-friday-81/. Currently, I am reading A Silken Thread by Kim Vogel Sawyer, so I will share a line from that book here.

    "Willie carried two steaming bowls to the scarred table in the corner of the small kitchen."

    Hope your weekend is a good one. Happy reading! πŸ™‚πŸ’šπŸ“š

  3. Great line, I so understand-I always have one of those mornings!!!!

    My First Line is, "The wail of a ship’s whistle jerked Anna Wilson from sleep despite the cotton wadding she’d shoved in her ears before bed."

    This is from The Great Lakes Lighthouse Brides Collection by multiple authors.

    Have a wonderful weekend!

    Blessings~ ��

  4. Happy Friday! I'm featuring Beauty in Battle by Robin Patchen today. Here are the first lines from Chapter Nine:

    "This is it?" Jack peered at the rusty sign hung from the front of a rundown brick building. This wasn't the ending to the morning he'd envisioned.

  5. I think we can all relate to "those mornings"!

    I'm sharing the first line from A Hero for Miss Hatherleigh by Australian author Carolyn Miller on my blog today. I'm currently up to Chapter Seven, and here's the first line:

    The next time at services Caroline did her best to recall why she attended, to fix her thoughts on the service and not on the gentleman seated two rows behind her on her left.

    Happy reading :)
