I first saw the Homeschool Mom's Bible at the Teach them Diligently Homeschool Convention in Nashville. It caught my eye and immediately went on my wish list. A Bible with daily personal encouragement created just for homeschool Moms? Yes, please!
Imagine how excited I was when the opportunity arose for me to review The Homeschool Mom's Bible! Zondervan offers both a NIV (New International Version) and the original KJV (King James Version). Being a traditionalist at heart, I selected the King James Version and I was beyond pleased. Like every homeschool mom I know, my girls and I are always on the go. You could call us more of a "car"schooling family!:) So, I kept the Homeschool Mom's Bible in my car. When I found 10 minutes of quiet, I opened it up to one of the 365 daily meditations (written by a former homeschool mom) and read. My heart was blessed each and every time. September 14th addressed "Homeschool Complaints"- and it wasn't just talking about children! Yes, moms are guilty of complaining, too. The Bible verse was "Do all things without murmurings and disputings." Philippians 2:14. There's even a little prayer after each devotion. 10 minutes is all it takes which is perfect for me. I can be on the go again and still reflect on what I've read. Other topics covered are:
-finding strength to keep motivated
-navigating the needs of toddlers while educating siblings
-staying focused and committed
-delegating tasks and chores
and so much more...
There's also a Topical Index in the back with subjects pertaining to homeschooling! No more searching for the verse you need- it's all there for you.
The Homeschool Mom's Bible is attractive, encouraging, and helpful and would make a wonderful Christmas gift!
