Change of Plans

Reflections from Mommies With Infants & Toddlers

by Asha Grinnell and Jennah Mitchell

This book is for anyone that has ever loved a child; it if for moms that, like us, find themselves thrust deep into the trenches of early motherhood and need the peace and rest that so often evades us while our children are young. It is a collection of devotions for the weary, for the searching, and for anyone looking for pockets of peace amid the ups and downs of this life.
Asha and I have known each other since our college days. We have seen one another get married and start families, and through it all we have marveled at how our life journeys could be so alike and yet so different at the same time. As moms and as women, we are all tied together through our shared experiences of raising children and helping to lead our families towards God’s grace. As we struggled to find our way through the chaos that is parenthood, we found that there were several truths that continually cropped up in our lives that encouraged and convicted us. We realized as time passed that we were two women that struggled to accept change…and as any parent with an infant or toddler knows, change happens on a weekly, if not daily, basis. Once we began to accept that fact that God has called us to a life of changed plans, we began to better appreciate life for what it is: a beautiful mess that somehow God is able to mold into a work of art. We may make plans, but it is the Lord that directs our steps, and as hindsight has showed us, Him being in control of our lives always turns out much better than when we take the reigns and try to blaze our own trails. This devotional is a peek into a few of the moments of our lives that illustrate God’s changes to our plans, as well as our insights into how those plans are always better than what we could have ever hoped for. We are so unbelievably excited for this book; while we believe that all moms can find support and encouragement from this devotional, our hope is that it is a special blessing to moms that – like us – are deep in the trenches of early motherhood and need the peace and rest that can so often evade us while our children are very young.
