"Moms' Night Out" by Tricia Goyer & Devotional by Kerri Pomarolli

About this book:
  “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.

 Series: Has a movie of the same name, which I can’t wait to see! {My parents and I were going to see it on the 9th but we all got sick. :( }

Spiritual Content- Prayers; Sondra is a Pastor’s wife; Talks about God, doing your best for Him & Trusting Him when things don’t go as we planned.

Negative Content- Minor cussing including: a two forms of ‘crap’, a ‘dang’, a ‘freakin’’, and a ‘darn’; Bones headbutts a guy.

Sexual Content- a ‘tramp’; Allyson & Sean share some (not-detailed) kisses; Bridget had Phoenix out of wedlock with Joey.

                    P.O.V. switches between Allyson, Sean, Izzy, Marco, Sondra, Bridget, Kevin, Bones, Mary (once) & Hank (once)

Oh my. Everything that could go wrong does go wrong in “Moms’ Night Out”. I don’t know what I cracked-up at more—the cabbie or Bones’ and his Pinterest! Plus, Allyson is a (mommy) blogger!


I’ve never reviewed (or planned on reviewing) a devotional but ever since I saw the “Moms’ Night Out” movie trailer while my family and I were waiting for “God’s Not Dead” to start, I knew I wanted to see it. Did I mention Tricia Goyer novelized it? Yup!  I then knew I had to read the book as well.
Before you ask; yes, I’m a Teen (15 next month to be exact), so I’m nowhere near becoming a Mommy. But, I’m a babysitter! That counts for something, right? A Mother-in-training? No? Hmmm.
I didn’t use this as a devotional, I just sat down and read it. An even 200 pages of hilarious stories, Scriptures and Prayers for the Soon-to-be Mom & New Mom.
I asked my Momma to read this devotional and she said she would! (Y’know, after I begged. ;) ) She said that she couldn’t relate to it (me being her youngest of two) because she had such wonderful daughters. (Of course, I’m her favorite. ;) ) And that it would be good for New Moms or Moms with younger children.

And here's the Trailer for the movie.

USA Today best-selling author Tricia Goyer has written the novelization to the much-anticipated movie, Moms' Night Out. Don't miss this hilarious family comedy that celebrates real family life—where everything can go wrong and still turn out all right.

If that’s you, you’re invited to take part in Tricia and Kerri's No More Frumpy Mommy challenge.

Tricia and Kerri will choose 10 winners to receive a Fandango gift card to see Moms' Night Out, as well as copies of Moms' Night Out (the book) and Moms' Night Out and Other Things I Miss.
