From the Publisher

This latest addition to the devotional Bible family will help mothers approach mothering creatively and with their own unique style. Every mom needs to take a few moments for herself each day to find refreshment, encouragement, stimulation and inspiration in the Word of God. A full year of weekday and weekend devotions, written by Elisa Morgan, president of Mothers of Preschoolers, Inc. (MOPS), are combined with the Bible text to offer moms fresh perspectives on the challenges they face daily. Other features include full-color pages that give moms inspiration and encouragement as well as a place to record memories and special events. Also included are "Promises & Perspectives," reading plans, and a heart icon that tracks the mothers and grandmothers in Scripture.

I love this devotional so very much its amazing and a great way to learn gods word.
L. Coalgrove
It's a perfect amount of scripture reading each day and the "lessons" are very practical and really apply to the life of a mom and wife.
T. Clark
The first time I bought it was for a secret sister and I liked it so much that I got myself a copy.

I received this bible as a gift and I've really appreciated it. I like the NIV translation, and there is a nice daily devotional that runs through the entire bible. The devotionals have a brief passage to read, two additional passages on the topic and a short lesson. It's not as in-depth as some of the other devotionals I've used, but often it has been just the message I needed to hear. It's also super-convenient having it right IN the bible itself! The downside is that my old study bible had notes about passages, clearing up some confusing parts or adding historical references and I miss that.

One weird thing is that they marked verses about mothers with little hearts in the margin, which would have been nice if they really looked for verse about parenting/mothering. Instead, they simply marked every verse which has the word "Mother" in it, which means verses like "Mary the mother of Jesus" and stuff like that which really isn't about being a mother.

Occasionally the additional verses to read aren't really on-topic, which is a little annoying.

If you are a mom looking for a new NIV bible, this is a good, but not great one.

Format: Paperback
This Bible is perfect for busy moms who may sometimes find themselves overwhelmed with the stresses and responsibilities of motherhood. Each devotional is a direct reminder that we should strive to apply Scripture to all that we do and face, not only as Christian mothers, but as women, daughters, and friends. The translation, NIV, is simple to understand for those moms who may be new to reading and applying Scripture.

Format: Paperback
This was the first Bible I purchased, and the first one I read 'cover to cover'. It's written in the NIV translation, which is often called the most popular. It is easy to read, yet has a lot of the 'pretty' language. The devotions are great for new (and old!) moms, and really relate the Scripture to life we (as moms) might expect.

This book is a wonderful addition to new mom or mother to be. There are wonderful passages dealing with mom's and mothering issues and reminds us to keep our head high when dealing with the stress of parenthood!

If you are looking for a basic, NIV bible, that is portable in size, this one will do.

My gripe against this gift bible has more to do with the "helps" sections. There is a devotional page or other type of help page every 130 pages or so. Each page is prettily decorated around the edges with a floral design. I don't hate the design.

However, the content on those pages is really laughable in some cases.

For example, the help page opposite page 236 in the text lists passages of qualities mom's are to reproduce in their children. Now, it's not a bad idea to have some goals in mind in your parenting, but I feel that lists like these are sticks for moms to beat themselves up with if they don't measure up.

This bible is very littered with "help" pages - full color "More for Mom" pages - that basically condemn moms who don't live up to their "standard."

The "help" page opposite page 1260 in the text is titled "Great Expectations".

I would call it "impossibly high standards."

Now, I do recognize the Eriksonian stages of human development, from the class I had to take for my teaching certificate, years ago. However, I never liked the way Erikson's stages set up win-lose dichotomies. I don't feel their inclusion in this bible makes sense. Is this another attempt to make moms feel inadequate?

The page states " the following compilation of information from various experts, both secular and faith-based, will help you to be better equipped to find your way for yourself and your family." However, the stages aren't really adequately explained to be helpful. Also, the page includes 5 different sets of "guidelines" none of which are explained in any useful detail.

I love my new Bible! I even got book tabs so I can learn where each book is located in it and get to it a lot faster. Another great thing is that my son is watching me read it. He is getting interested :) I bought him a tween boy's devotional that we read together every night. I love how the Lord is making a difference in my family's lives!

I don't rate many products, just the ones I really like. The devotionals take about 5 minutes to read, but they always touch my heart. The Bible is set up in an easy to read font and size. One added touch is that it puts a heart by every Scripture in the Bible that mentions mothers or mothering.

This bible has great mother oriented devotionals in it. They were relevant, well thought out and broad. However, consider purchasing a hard back cover if possible. The paperback cover has not worn well and they became dog eared very quickly.
