The Homeschool Mom's Bible (NIV) ~ book review


Homeschooling moms have a unique combination role in life ~ not only are they mothers who are working to raise their children to be healthy, functional adults, they're also the primary educators working to prepare their children for college, readying them to be healthy, functional contributors to society as a whole. We have the daunting task of moving our children to a place where they can impact their world for Christ and His Kingdom. What a huge job homeschooling moms have! We certainly can use all the encouragement we can get!

The Homeschool Mom's Bible offers that encouragement. Daily devotionals are dated, interspersed throughout the text of the Bible. They're just short enough to ensure a busy mom won't skip over reading them due to their length; and they're meaty enough to drive home key points and encouragement. (All the devotions were penned by Janet Tatman, a veteran homeschooling mother with more than 25 years of homeschooling experience.)

The Bible itself is a standard NIV Bible. It isn't a study Bible, so don't expect loads of footnotes and extras. It simply does what it sets out to do ~ encourage homeschool moms in their day-to-day life. And it does that very well. I really recommend this Bible for all homeschooling women. The devotions are often exactly what is needed on a specific day, and I'm all about women staying in the Word, so how could I not enthusiastically endorse the Bible?!? If you're in want of a Bible, or searching for daily encouragement, you won't go wrong with The Homeschool Mom's Bible.

Features include:
  • 365 daily meditations with prayers written by Janet Tatman, a veteran homeschooling mother with more than 25 years of experience homeschooling
  • The full text of the clear, accessible New International Version (NIV) translation
  • Foreword from Vickie Farris, author, homeschool mom, and wife of Michael Farris, founder of the Homeschool Legal Defense Association
  • Topical index
On my "Page Turner Scale" of 1 to 5, I gave this book a 5.
