Tweeting with God eBook for FREE

I don't consider to have it all together and I tell you why. There are days that I just can't seem to get my kids to behave well, the food won't taste right and let's not talk about the traditional devotional time. I wrote Tweeting with God for days and seasons like these. One thing is for sure, through the nuances of motherhood I have experienced God's amazing favor and love. When I can't seem to wake up early and get my day started as I dream I should (devotional, exercise, food) God is there to meet me. I believe He loves and understands mothers and the commitments that come along with this season of life.
I used to be the chick who would always wake up early to pray and exercise. I used to leave my house and "float" to work. Now that I am a mother I wake up with my kids staring at me while I can't possibly believe it's 6:30 a.m. already and I need to fix oatmeal in a hurry.
Hurry leads to worry. I worry about not having a "good witness" that day because I lacked in my Bible reading. What I find out is that even when all I have time for is to Tweet with God, He always meets me where I am and saves my day.
I realize that a so called "good witness" in my book includes being less than perfect while living life to the fullest. I have to let God speak through through me while He displays His grace and favor in my life.
I am aware that when I seek God first, everything works out (see 
Matthew 6:32-34). I also know that motherhood (the part when you have two busy toddlers and about to have a newborn to make life even more exciting) is only one season among many I will experience in life. I might not get the perfect devotional done every day and that really doesn't matter. As long as I "tweet" my prayers, worship and love for God throughout the day, I am usually okay. I also realize that when I do that, I'm teaching my kids not to put God in the morning only box but to walk with Him throughout the day. 
I want to give my eBook for Free to any of you who can relate to what I am going through. You are busy and you want to connect with God but these new demands of life seem to take up a lot of time and energy. Just leave me a comment and I'll get in touch with you. Have an amazing day and please let go of any shame or condemnation. You are loved by God, just as you are.
