MY REVIEW-If you listen to news and media at all around you, many people were excited about a new movie coming out called Mom's Night Out. I wasn't really that interested in the movie, I wanted to read the book:) I also received a devotional that I will talk about below.
The book is based on the movie and while I didn't really care for the movie, the book was pretty good. It follows the lives of three different women who are in various stages in life. The main character Allyson is a mom of three young children and feels like she is doing nothing right and her life is a failure. She isn't put together like the other women at church and all she does is run after kids all day. (Just a quick comment here, I think the kids needed more discipline and order. Yes, children will run around and play but a little discipline would have helped out a lot in this department.) The Pastor's wife is one of the other woman who looks all put together but is struggling with her teenage daughter who wants to live life like other young people. And the last woman looks put together as well but has her own struggles and trials.
Now overall this is a funny comedy. There are tons of spots where I was laughing and don't even get me started on the part where a cop pulls over a van. This is outright laugh out loud humor!! But the Christianity I found to be somewhat lacking. With how much it was in the news and media, they could have really put a lot more Christianity in it but most of it comes from a biker with tattoos all over him that no longer attends church or anything. And it is a very small part in the book. I just think there could have been a lot more to it.
The devotional book was good and I liked reading through for the days I had it. I have now passed it on to my library:) They love getting books like this. This is good for new moms but also for those who have been through it several times. Inspirational and funny there was a lot in this little book.
