New Mom's Prayer Bible reveiw and GIVEAWAY!

I was recently given the new mom's prayer Bible by the folks at Zondervan Publishing. I was excited to hear from them because my personal Bible reading time was lacking so I thought that a new Bible might be just what I needed to kick it in gear! And I LOVE it! Honestly love it!

There are 52 one-minute "Thought Starters" that let you dip into God's Word for a minute of refreshment. Each of these "Thought Starters" is followed by an option for a five-minute prayer or a ten-minute study to help you learn even more about what God's Word has to say to you today! Perfect for a busy mom!

I've been doing one study a week and wanting more and more so I've been getting good use out of the back of the Bible as well where the Concordance is located as well as a section called "Additional 5 minutes Reflect and Pray" based on the Psalms.
I know you will love this Bible! I couldn't recommend it more! I actually just bought Robb the dad's version of the same Bible as well so we can go through it together!

Isn't it pretty?!?!

Now here is how you can enter to win this Bible for yourself or a new mom friend! Leave a seperate comment for each entry!

  1. I am most excited about winning this because I have recently begun to attend PWOC on the military base my husband and I are stationed at and I want to find a good Bible to help me in developing my relationship with God as well as something that will allow me to develop this relationship without feeling bogged down by time contraints.

  5. Oh wow, this would be perfect for me. I really feel like I've spent far too little time connecting with my faith since becoming a mom. While I certainly put my faith into practice every day, I don't reflect on it like I used to. I am hoping this little gift would convince me to sit down for a few minutes and do so--it's almost like two gifts in one!!!

  55. I am excited about this giveaway because I will be giving birth to my first child in three weeks! This would be a great oppertunity to reconnect the right way with God, and to help me through doing this without my mother around (she went to be with God two years ago). This would have been her first grandchild so his birth will be very bittersweet for me, and there will be many days I will need strength to get through!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Well, it looks like a really great Bible and I am in dier need of getting back into reading and this would be the perfect solution. It would be wonderful to win, but even if I do not, I will probably purchse this anyway. Thanks for introducing it!

I have been looking for encouragement (why i like to check your blog frequently) :) and know i can find that in a devotional. I like to read the bible out loud to my son in the mornings. Its our little devotional time together. Thanks Katie for introducing me to this devotional bible!

  96. i like that it's for "moms" and it looks like it's simple to follow and yet has lots to offer!

    ReplyDelete
  97. after checking out the website, I really like that you can get so much out of just a few simple minutes (the one-minute thought starters and the five-minute prayer/ten-minute study)...i'm sure you understand how quickly the day can go buy with a LO around; I'm sure this Bible is perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  98. What gets me most excited about winning this Bible is that it would offer me the chance to get back my "adult" bible study time. I help out with 4 year olds in Sunday school and often the next class is short on teachers so we often stay and then I miss out on "big people" church and this would offer me the opportunity to stay connected on those weeks where I feel I am getting behind. Thanks for sharing this and even if I don't win I will be checking this out and recommending it to others!!

  101. I checked out more info about the Bible at Zondervan's website and I like that there are weekly studies and you can do 5 minute prayers or 10 minutes studies, these are great options for moms who don't have a lot of free time but still want to get their devotional and prayer time it!!!

  102. I would love to win this Bible! We are adopting a baby due in December and throughout the whole adoption process I have had a roller coaster of emotions. My faith sometimes has faltered after going down a hill and I am slowly trying to regain my relationship with God. I have been looking for something to help me on that journey. This sounds like just the ticket! Thank you for offering this great giveaway!
