Mama Needs A Time-Out is your daily getaway, book-ended by Scripture, Heather’s “been-there-and-done-that” transparency and tips for moms are a great way to refresh your spirit—you know, the sleep-deprived, squabbling-refereeing, hormone-crazed, woman your kids refer to as, “Mom.”

So if you’re in need of a time out, solid Biblical teaching, and a moment or two with God, this book is just for!~

Heather says the reason she wrote this book is she was desperate for God’s companionship and intrigued by all His names in the Scriptures. How can a mom who is being pulled in a million different directions be able to build an intimate relationship with God?

That question in itself, she learned on a daily basis when her preschoolers were infants and toddlers. She discovered we can know God intimately, even when we are folding socks, shuttling kids everywhere, and even when our baby is crying non-stop, He is there! She wanted moms to learn what she did about our faithful God.
