If you look around your home, there’s a good chance you see different Bibles for different purposes. You have the sentimental Bible with years of notes that you’re afraid to travel with for fear of losing it, there’s the Bible you keep in the car in case you get caught in a traffic standstill, there may be the Bible your husband gave you for your wedding engraved with your new name, and of course, there may be your daily reading Bible. But there are also different types of Bibles formatted for different types of moms.
Different Bibles meet different needs during different periods in your life, which is why it is so fitting to share this Mom Bible Round-Up. Yes, Bibles filled with insights designed especially for moms alongside God’s word. No matter what type of mom you are (and you may find yourself fitting into more than one of these categories), we hope you’ll find encouragement and wisdom from one of these Mom Bibles.
Top 4 Mom Bible Round-Up:
1. The Busy Mom’s Bible (available in NIV and KJV)
The tagline on this Bible is awesome: “Daily inspiration even if you only have a minute”. Throughout this Bible, you will find 52 one-minute Thought Starters, followed by an option for a five-minute Reflect and Pray or a ten-minute Study to help you learn even more about what God’s Word has to say to you today. Devotional thoughts are written specifically for you, the busy mom, and cover topics such as raising kids, marriage, emotions, and your identity in Christ.
Homeschooling moms pour themselves out every day for the sake of their children. This Bible is made for homeschool moms and provides encouragement specific to homeschooling, with a full year’s worth of encouraging daily devotions. These heartfelt, practical readings written by Janet Tatman, a former homeschooling mom, cover topics such as finding the strength to keep motivated, avoiding burnout, staying focused and committed, navigating the needs of toddlers while educating siblings, managing schedules, delegating tasks and chores, setting boundaries, and most importantly, maintaining proper soul care while juggling educational and household responsibilities.
Being a new mom presents many challenges. But one of them doesn’t have to be finding time to connect with God. Devotional thoughts specifically for the new mom are all presented here. I love what new mom, Lori, had to say about this Bible, “It keeps me encouraged.” Not only does the Bible speak to you as a new mom with specific issues you may deal with, like sleep deprivation and marital adjustments, but it also helps you pray– something I need a little extra help with.
This Bible includes so many daily devotional readings by some fantastic authors! This Bible was edited by Elisa Morgan, President Emerita of Mothers of Preschoolers, International (MOPS), and she offers such great, encouraging advice on holding your head high when dealing with the stress of parenthood. Then there are a year’s worth of daily devotions for Monday through Friday, mostly written by Elisa Morgan, and others including Stormie Omartian, Tracey Bianchi, Shauna Niequist, Ann Voskamp, Lysa TerKeurst, Shayne Moore, Jennifer Grant, Linda Dillow, Margaret Feinberg, Karol Ladd, Anita Lustrea, Sheila Walsh, Angela Thomas, and Carolyn Custis James. There’s also an index of Bible topics important to mothers and a resource list with timely, practical help for moms.
