The favorite part of my day is morning. I get up before everyone else, grab a cup of coffee, and sit down with God – reading my Bible, jotting down notes, journaling, and reading some awesome devotional material.
As Mother’s Day approaches, I wanted to share five of my favorite devotionals for moms. I am sure there will be a few little people in your life, wondering what you might like to receive on Mother’s Day. So why not share this post and give them a few heart-centered ideas.
This is one of my all-time favorite devotionals. I will cycle through it every other year. Picking it up and hearing some familiar phrases and stories is a comfort. Do you ever read a devotional more than once? I enjoy Nancy’s writing, her style of vulnerability, and bringing her heart to the pages. I have it on my Kindle, so I can easily access it from my iPad or my phone too. But the imitation leather edition is really a nice gift idea. This is a full year devotion, which I love! Grab it HERE.
5 Minutes with Jesus by Sheila Walsh
Looking for a devotion that has several verses to get your journaling jump-started? This is the one. I enjoy that at the end of each day’s section, there is a “Five Minutes in the Word” section listing at least 4-5 verses that relate to Sheila’s writing. I enjoy simple and things that relate to my life. This one fits that perfectly. She gives a real strategy, even when we are so busy that we can and are blessed when we stop to take a few minutes to spend time in His word. Grab it HERE.
Devotions for the Beach and Days You Wish You Were There by Thomas Nelson
Yes, I am a little beach crazed, so it should be no surprise that I enjoyed this devotion as well. Even in the Kindle version you have some images that are so nice and often overlooked in these versions.
You have a verse, a writing, and a short prayer you can end with. If you are looking for something to change up your routine, this one is great, only 90 days long, and perfect for spring! Grab it HERE.
Quieting Your Heart: 6-Month Bible-Study Journal by Darlene Schacht
This is not necessarily a devotion – however, it will help you focus and begin journaling your prayers and observations during your quiet time. I often find it difficult to focus and really dig in a bit deeper, so this book has been a great resource and guide for me. I love that I can doodle and color on the pages, yet it has some points which help me clarify what I am reading: 3 things I am thankful for, finishing the sentence “God is…”, and more. If you struggle with what to journal, this one is great. It’s a 6-month book and the price is very reasonable! Grab it HERE.
