Moms' Night Out: book, devotional & movie! #REVIEW

A Rup Life received product to facilitate this post. This post contains affiliate links. 

If you haven't seen the preview for the new movie Moms' Night Out - you must be living under a rock!! I haven't had the time to go see the movie (it is on my wish list!) yet - you know how it is Mom nights that are kid free are rare!  I did have the opportunity to read the book based on the screenplay and I've been reading the devotional!  I have to tell you chapter one of the book had me cracking up!  It is rare that a book EVER does that!

The whole premise of this book/movie is that one Mommy is having a bit of a tough / crazy time with where she is at in life.  (Anyone with young children will immediately identify with the character Allyson!)  She decides a night out is just what she needs to regroup and invites two other mom's along.  That is when the real crazy comes out!

The novelization by Tricia Goyer was just so funny!  I could relate to the moms love for the kids and how they dealt with the craziness of motherhood.  The story has a great ending and you know that they ladies are genuinely in love with God and their families! I devoured this book because the story was light yet powerful.  I laughed out loud throughout.  Just maybe this book is the sort of thing we should give mommies when their little ones turn 2!!!  It might help some mommies cope a little better!

I've also had the opportunity to review the devotional Moms' Night Out and Other Things I Miss: Devotions To Help You Survive .  This has been a little gem!  Kerri really weaves wonderful stories so beautifully that you don't realize how convicted you will feel until the end.  Each devotional has a short read, questions to ask yourself and a prayer.  I love how easy it is to use this book and how fast it is.  We are all busy but you can fit this one in. 

All in all I loved both books and would highly recommend reading them!

About the book Moms' Night Out

Moms' Night Out is a novelization of the hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life---where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.
All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms' night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for a few hours-what could go wrong?
Chronicling one night out gone awry, three harried moms, their husbands, a sister-in-law with a misplaced baby, a tattoo parlor owner, a motorcycle gang, and a bewildered cabbie all learn to embrace the beautiful mess called parenting. This book spotlights the unfulfilled expectations and serial self-doubts many moms feel . . . then reassures us that the key is raising kids in a loving home. Mom's Night Out is an endearing, true-to-life comedy.
