USA Today best-selling author Tricia Goyer has written the novelization to the much-anticipated movie, Moms’ Night Out. Don’t miss this hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
And, look for the companion devotional written by comedian Kerri Pomarolli, Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions To Help You Survive.
Not a fan of movies? This novelization of the Mom’s night out movie was just as funny as the movie. The small devotional guide, “Moms’ Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions To Help You Survive”, will have you laughing at the insane craziness of the author, and shenanigans of her children.
I found myself laughing through it and nodding as she took the extreme circumstances that she has faced in mothering, and hopefully embellished a little to make them more humorous for the audience.
We as mothers can be very hard on ourselves. I think often we can go one way or the other where we wonder why we signed up for this mom gig after all. Then when someone hears some of the stories and says “You are not making me want to be a mom now!”, I find myself stopping and saying…”But you know, it really is worth it. There is just something about being a mom that makes all the hardship forgettable and you know you are not sorry you did it.”
I never wanted to be a mom. I was a big sister, and I figured that I already had experienced enough chances at mothering with that. Little did I know that God had something else in mind for me, than my big plans. I still don’t always feel like the warmest, cuddly mom, but I love being a mom.
Mom’s Night Out as a novel, was very similar to the movie, but gives you an inside look at what was going on in the characters minds as well. The real, raw feeling that Ally and her friends experience, can teach you some valuable lessons as you laugh and cry alongside her. This is a book you will enjoy!
These books will speak to you and your mothering friends. It might inspire you to organize your own “Mom’s night out” a little more often, reach out to moms around you to encourage them, and give you some devotionals to try throughout the year. Best of all, it will make you laugh at all the crazy things we go through, and then say it is worth it!
