I have homeschooled my kids for over 15 years. And I have used NIV Bibles for much longer than that. I was thrilled to receive this beautiful NIV (New International Version) Homeschool Mom's Bible to review. Are you a homeschool mom who feels exhausted or unmotivated or inadequate or ready to give up? Have you neglected spending time in God's Word? We, homeschool moms, get discouraged, stressed, or anxious from time to time. We desperately need consistent spiritual food for strength, stamina, encouragement, wisdom, and guidance. Let's take care of our soul first so that we'll be able to properly care for our children's spiritual well-being.
This Bible is designed specifically for you. It contains 365 daily devotions written by Janet Tatman, a veteran homeschooling mom with 25 years under her belt. She's one of those who has been there done that. Her messages will encourage & inspire you and will help you feel more confident & committed in your calling. Each devotion starts with a Scripture passage and ends with a prayer. Each devotion is only one page long. These devotions are insightful and Biblically sound. I enjoyed reading them and could relate to what Janet talks about. You will be nodding your head or smiling while you read them because you likely share the same or similar experiences. I really appreciate the topical index in the back of the Bible. Conveniently, readers can find a topic that they are interested in or curious about or that is relevant to their current situation. There are various topics such as reason for homeschooling, weariness, priorities, perseverance, motivation, training children in faith, feeling overwhelmed, learning styles, reward for homeschooling, and more.

The NIV Homeschool Mom’s Bible is written specifically to encourage homeschooling mothers, inspiring and energizing them from God’s Word. It includes 365 daily devotions written by Janet Tatman, a homeschooling mom with 25 years of experience. It also includes a topical index to help locate passages dealing with topics of interest.
I enjoyed looking through this Bible. I found the daily devotions well-written and inspiring, many of them useful not just for mothers, but also for use with the whole family. In fact, the one I read to my own children received positive reactions from them. I was disappointed that the words of Jesus are not in red lettering, as this is very helpful when reading any Bible. I also felt that the front cover is a little busy for my taste. It implies that all homeschooling moms enjoy crafting. However, I did appreciate that it has a hard cover that will hold up much longer than a paperback.
Overall, I thought this Bible was put together well and would recommend it to homeschooling mothers.

This is a wonderful devotional Bible for any mom, not just for homeschoolers, although I really like the fact that it's geared it toward homeschool moms. The readings are not long, but are encouraging and challenge you to keep going no matter what Motherhood is throwing at you today.
This is a hard cover Bible with a slipcover, sturdily built and should whether real life use well. The cover is a bit cheesy, but still fun and colourful. The font is a good size for reading and there's not a lot of extra 'stuff' in the margins, which I like. Clean and simple. The devotional pages have a darker border around them which makes them easier to spot, I don't really like that these devotional pages are interspersed throughout the Bible (in order, of course). The end of each devotional tells you the page number of the next one, but that's only good if you can actually use a bookmark at your house without it being pulled out by small fingers at some point in the day! Tabs would have been helpful, or maybe having the devotional at the front or back of the Bible. I can't complain about the content, as the ones I've read are excellent. There is a topical index for the devotionals at the back of the Bible.
I received this Bible from Booksneeze and Zondervan in exchange for an honest review. My opinion is my own. Thank you Zondervan!

I was so thrilled to get this very special Bible in the mail. It is so beautiful and I love the feel of the leather cover too. The devotions are sooo encouraging to me and all seem to hit right what I need on the day I need to hear it. It is so easy to use and reading the devotions written by such a wonderful Christian woman who homeschooled for 25 years that are written in such a grace filled and authentic way blesses me more than I can say. It is like sitting down with a mentor/friend for Bible devotions before starting my day. Thank you for making this available at such a wonderful price. I highly recommend it to my friends and anyone who needs some encouragement as a homeschooling mom that directs us back into God's Word where our greatest encouragement comes from.
