First of all, to my subscribers – thank you. I know you haven’t received an email with new writing from me in many months, but your support still means the world to me.
I took some time off from writing essays because, in July, I got a book deal with Zeitgeist Publishing, an imprint of Penguin Random House! It was a whirlwind process, and I spent the entire summer writing what is now “Blessings, New Mom: A Women’s Devotional”.
After that, it was a rush to finish edits and work obligations before my maternity leave began. We welcomed Baby Ezekiel into the world on October 31, 2022 and, of course, he has kept me busy since then.
I’ll be adding a couple of articles onto my website soon, so apologies in advance if you get a couple of emails in a row. And in the coming weeks, you’ll see a few blog posts featuring excerpts from my book in anticipation of its release on April 11th!
In the meantime, if you’d like to learn more about the book and pre-order a copy, you can do so here. I’ve also included a synopsis below. Thank you for your support!
Blessings, New Mom is a weekly devotional for new moms that provides grace and compassion for the first year of motherhood and beyond
Being a new mom and taking care of a newborn is a time filled with blessings, celebrations, and lessons that reveal God’s truths about life and motherhood. As a devoted mother of three and passionate leader in her church community, Ellie Hunja earnestly shares the joys and challenges of new motherhood and reaffirms that God is always by your side as you find your path in this special season. Filled with weekly scriptures, affirmations, devotions, and prayers, Blessings, New Mom is a beautiful reminder that no matter the moment—precious and delightful or overwhelming and difficult—God will meet you where you are.
