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 The downside is that my old study bible had notes about passages, clearing up some confusing parts or adding historical references and I miss that.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.

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.

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.

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!

This new Devotional Bible is lovely, I gave it to my daughters in laws
for their first Mother's Day. Elisa's devotions are spot on and provide
instruction and encouragement from The Word. I have had several
guided daily reading, devotional Bibles over the years and this one
rates right at the top- especially for it's target audience of Moms and
Grandmothers.

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.

The Bible itself is a Bible. It has devotions throughout. The only reason I dropped a star is that I wish the devotions were evenly spaced so that I could read through the bible along with the devotional part at a set pace, but sometimes there's a devotion for like, every other chapter, and sometimes there are many chapters between devotions. Also, there are devotions for Monday-Friday and one "Mom Day" devotion for the weekend. I wish there were devotions for every day of the week. I guess they assume with church on Sunday you don't need a devotional too? Overall though, I love the Bible and the devotional and having them together in one book is wonderful. The devotions themselves are great and pull from nearby verses and relate it to things moms deal with. I've been reading it every day since I got it.
