about the book
Title: The Brave Art of Motherhood: Fight Fear, Gain Confidence, & Find Yourself Again
Author: Rachel Marie Martin
Release Date: October 9, 2018
Genre: Christian Living/Women’s Interest
Full-time FindingJoy.net blogger, speaker, marketer, podcaster, and single mom of seven, Rachel Marie Martin presents a wake-up call to those of us who have found ourselves stuck in the ‘I’m just a mom’ phase of life.
Yes, this book is about motherhood . . . but really, this book is about finding yourself again and following your passion WHILE being a mom. Inspired by her incredible story, Rachel’s words always come straight from the gut; they are visceral, real and soul searching. She challenges you to find the courage to break cycles, to take off masks and not let fear take control. This book is a balance of tough, “no excuses” ways of approaching life, while allowing breathing room and grace for yourself, for as we all know, life and mothering are not perfect.
After inspiring and conversing with thousands of women, Rachel has surmised there is always a reason to hope, to move forward and a reason to dare doing what you thought was impossible. (Yes, including what you are skeptical of accomplishing right now). She encourages you to say yes to your dreams and stop waiting for “someday” or “one day” or “when something happens”.
Prepare to change the way you think about yourself and your life. This will be a book you read over and over armed with a highlighter in one hand and a journal for introspection in another.

Today on my blog, I am sharing the first few lines from The Heart of a King by Jill Eileen Smith: https://christianfictiongirl.blog/2019/05/02/first-line-friday-85/. I am beginning chapter 20 so I will leave the first line from there.
“Abishag’s mood slipped into melancholy as the months continued on after King David’s death, a mood she had not experienced to any great length since her mother had passed into Sheol.”
Hope you have an excellent weekend. Happy reading! ???
Thanks for sharing this first line of The Art of Motherhood. I need to read more!
Today on my blog I shared the first line from The Refuge by Ann Gabhart but my next read I’ll be starting shortly is Shadow Among Sheaves by Naomi Stephens so I’ll share the first line from the prologue here: “The sun was the same, but that was all.” Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Happy Reading!
Happy Weekend! My first line is from “Sweet on You” by Becky Wade, and I can hardly wait to start it!
“Five hundred and eleven days had passed since he’d seen her last.”
Happy Friday! I’m sharing from The Pink Bonnet by Liz Tolsma on my blog today, but here’s the first line from chapter two of my current read, When Mountains Move by Julie Cantrell:
“There’s something romantically hopeful about having a wedding in the middle of a war.”
the first line from The Lord of Winter by Kathryn Le Veque ” Armageddon had arrived.
I’m so late in getting around to everyone! I’m sharing the first lines from When He Found Me by Victoria Bylin:
“Shane Riley yanked his wet Levi’s out of a grimy washing machine, one of twenty or so in a Laundromat straight out of 1992.”
