Work-at-home moms bear a unique set of burdens as they attempt to blend job and family commitments under one roof. Maintaining professionalism while wiping noses and convincing outsiders that flexibility isn t all it s cracked up to be can put even the most organized to the test. Amid all the other duties of life, the work-at-home mom often discovers that feeding her soul is the biggest challenge of them all. Work-at-home mom: take a deep breath and Do Life Different as you allow these devotions for work-at-home moms to fill the vacuum of your needy heart in the chaos of your busy world.
Jill Hart’s entrepreneurial career began in her teens when she spent a summer helping her father with his vending business, stocking pop and candy machines. When he put her in charge of a Coke machine and allowed her to keep the profits, she saw the benefits of being her own boss.
That entrepreneurial spirit motivates her to show other women how to begin and build their own businesses from home. She is the founder of the popular Christian work-at-home website, CWAHM.com.
Jill has articles published in In Touch Magazine, P31 Woman magazine and Focus on the Family’s Thriving Family, as well as across the web on sites like DrLaura.com. She is the author of So You Want To Be a Work-at-Home Mom and speaks to audiences around the country about faith, business and leadership topics.
She lives in Nebraska with her husband and two kids and works in her pajamas as often as possible.

I don’t read a ton of non-fiction these days. With my busy schedule as an author and homeschool mom, reading is a time to relax. To be entertained. Not that non-fiction can’t be entertaining, mind you, but generally if I read I want to escape to a world away from my own.
But Jill Hart’s Do Life Different sounded right up my alley, so I decided to pick it up. As a work-at-home mom, I’ve been looking for something to uplift and encourage me. Let’s face it, we all experience burnout. I didn’t want to admit that this was exactly what I’d been dealing with. I mean, I’m super mom, right? I can do it all. The kids. The book. The schooling. I did it all right, but I was losing my sense of joy while doing it. Something had to change.
Do Life Different is exactly what I needed. With 52 quick devotions, one for each week of the year, this book goes at the perfect pace (I’m currently about halfway through). Jill writes to the heart of women. She gets it. She knows moms are busy. She’s heard all the excuses for not taking time out for devotions. But who doesn’t have time for one devotion a week? This book is so laid back, I feel like I’m reading personal letters or emails from Jill. I love the format and I know other work-at-home moms will feel the same.
The best part about Do Life Different is that Jill not only includes some questions to think on with space to write following each devotion, but she has included a link to videos (http://www.cwahm.com/dolifedifferent.htm) that go along with each one. The videos are short (between 5 and 10 minutes long). Reading the devotion and then watching and listening to Jill talk about it is like sitting down with a friend for my own personal Bible Study/ Book Club. It’s very intimate and refreshing. I highly recommend Do Life Different to any work-at-home mom looking for a dose of spiritual encouragement.
