Lord, Have Mercy

Help and hope for moms on their last nerve

Just when you think you’ve got this “mom” thing down . . .

  • Your toddler expresses his inner Picasso on your freshly painted walls . . . in permanent marker.
  • Your 14-year-old demonstrates her self-taught modeling skills . . . via every social network known to man.
  • Your husband pulls up in a new car that you can’t afford . . . and only has two seats.

Lord, have mercy. What are they thinking?

While motherhood is often a hysterical ride of pure joy, it can also hold some of the most mind-numbing, heartbreaking, and sacrificial moments of your life. Lord, Have Mercy offers 90 days of help and hope to moms who could use a good laugh (and sometimes a good cry). Always honest, often hilarious, and all-too-real, each devotional is filled with personal stories to remind you that God is with you in both the big and small moments of motherhood―especially when you’re on your last nerve!

If your life is PERFECT, THIS BOOK is not for you. BUT IF, LIKE THE REST OF US, you are at times broken, confused, lonely, or scared—if you’re struggling with problems that you think “good Christians” don’t have—then welcome, girlfriend, and pull up a chair!

This quirky, friendly, and gut-honest devotional comes straight from the heart of Ellen Miller (CEO, marketing executive, mom, and unapologetic “glorious mess”). Despite the serious struggles she’s faced, Ellen today lives a life of profound joy, and The One Year Book of Inspiration for Girlfriends contains 365 days’ worth of the principles and philosophies that have gotten her there. Her quick, daily doses of encouragement will make you laugh, give you something to look forward to each day, help you stay (somewhat!) sane, and remind you that you’re never alone.

Be Gone


Dear Girlfriends,

To provide your children with the best living, breathing example of love, I would like to recommend that you leave. With your spouse.

Of all the gifts you can give your child, loving his or her father or mother ranks close to the top. For your child to daily bear witness to laughter, friendship, kindness, respect, empathy, and passion parents must make it a point to stay connected—outside of the kids.
