About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Homeschool Mom's Bible- Exactly What I Needed!

My Thoughts:

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
-avoiding burnout
-staying focused and committed
-managing schedules
-delegating tasks and chores
-setting boundaries

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!
