Are you having a hard time fitting quiet time in to your day? Let me help!
As a busy, homeschooling mom of two, I know just how hard it is to find time to spend in The Word. Moms do you know what I am talking about?
I struggle daily to fit in time to really spend with God. We all know just how important it is to have this time as my day is much more smoothly with it, but it is hard.
I talked to several of my mom friends and learned that it is something that most of us have in common.
Does this sound familiar?
- You wake up rushed and unable to squeeze in quiet time before heading out the door
- Your evenings are full of baths, bedtime stories, and snuggles
- You are exhausted and know you need a change
I have a tool for you!
More Than Words for Moms
This devotional is meant to be quick and easy to go through.
It is designed to be unlike other devotionals, in that you are not given specific scripture to study. Instead, you find scripture that aligns with the word you choose for the day.
To use this devotional:
You do not have to use the words in the order they appear in this book.
Order the words
In fact, I encourage you to chose the order of words carefully and prayerfully. Once you have your words in the order that makes sense to you. You can bind them in a binder with a binding machine, put them in a folder, leave them lose, or staple them together. There is no “right way”.
Define the words
To dig into the study, you will want to decide how you want to define the words. You can use a dictionary or an online bible concordance. I often use Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance by BibleStudyTools.com. Either one is fine. What is important, is that you have a way to define the words in this study.
Memorize the scripture
After defining your word for the day, you will need to find the word in the Bible as it applies to your study. Write the scripture down and work on memorizing it. There are many ways that you can work on memorization.
- Repetition – I find writing things more than three times helps me.
- Omition – removing a few words at a time while repeating the verse. Do what works for you.
Apply to your life
Next, you are prompted to write about how you will apply the verse and the word to your life. This is very personal. It can be short or long. It all depends on where you are and what God lays on your heart.
Finally, pray over your word for the day.
There is a page for you to write your prayer. I find that I like going back and reading my prayers to see where I was at a certain point in life.
There is also a blank page at the end of the word study for you to use, should you need extra space to write. This has been the most requested change from the first book More than Words.
My prayer is that this devotional will be a blessing for you and your personal walk with the Lord. Make this your own. Adapt it to your life and to suit your needs. Be on the look out for more volumes!
