This is a delightful Bible with its bright, yet soft and cheery colors. It comes with a paper dust jacket for protection against normal daily use. The devotions headings are written in a beautiful font that is delicate and feminine, bordered with a modern floral trim. The pages are a bright white that I found to be easy on the eyes. In the back of the Bible you will find a Topical Index to use for a more detailed search of subjects. The forward is written by Vickie Farris, wife of Michael Farris the founder of Homeschool Legal Defense Association, who is also a homeschool mom and author.
This devotional Bible features 365 daily devotionals. Each devotional day starts out with a topic heading, then gives you a corresponding scripture. You will then read an encouraging devotional, and finish with a small prayer. At the bottom of each devotional, it gives you the page number for your devotional for the next day. You will find that each devotional only takes a few minutes to read.
I am not a morning person and I do bible studying at night, but after having the blessing of using this devotional for this review, I can start my day off right with a devotional, bible reading, prayer, and my favorite worship song (Praise Like Fireworks by Rend Collective). I enjoyed starting my day with a devotion now. I have my new “morning pattern” that I have begun, and its all because of this devotional. It helps start my day as a mom and a homeschool teacher. It has helped put me on track to have a positive and productive homeschool day. I am encouraged by the passages that I read. Some days I even read past devotions from earlier in the year that I missed. You don’t have to do that since you can just continue on in January and continue reading them over and over, year after year. You may remember them, and you may not. You might just find that you are reading something that God wants you to know.
I happen to like the April 3rd devotion about money, because I use to worry about how to pay for homeschool curriculum to the point that it consumed my “every day”. This particular devotion gives you a passage from Matthew 6:31-32 “Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
Basically this passage is saying, in homeschool terms, God will provide the right curriculum or resources you need for your children to learn what he wants them to learn for his benefit.
I think homeschool moms everywhere will enjoy this devotional bible, and possibly stay-at-home-moms will benefit from it also.
The wonderful devotions in this KJV Homeschool Mom’s Bible are written by Janet Tatman of Alpha Omega Publications. Janet is the writer for the Daily Focus email devotionals from AOP. I have been receiving those devotionals for several years, and I did not realize that these are the same devotionals in this Bible, that are in those emails. I am ecstatic about that because I love those devotionals. In the beginning of the Bible you can read about Janet Tatman and AOP.
