Book Review: NIV Homeschool Mom's Bible
|Devotions by Janet Tatman |
Published by Zondervan
This Bible was intended to help busy homeschool moms prioritize their time with God. It has 365 daily devotions tucked within the pages of Scripture, written by Janet Tatman. Janet has 25 years of homeschooling experience and offers a peek into her life as she shares the things she's learned along the way. Each devotion has a Scripture reference and tells you what page to turn to for the next day's devotion. In the back of the Bible, there is a chart of weights and measures, a topical index, and extra pages for notes.
I used this Bible for a week, using the daily devotions and reading over the referenced Scripture. I think Janet does a good job of tying the daily life of a homeschooling mom to the truth of God's Word--ways in which God uses us, uses our families to bring us closer to Him. I enjoyed reading the NIV text, although I must say my preference is the NKJV. The only suggestion I would have for this Bible would be to include a sewn-in bookmark ribbon. Since the Bible's layout spreads the daily devotions throughout the book, it would be nice to have a bookmark to hold my place. Overall, I have enjoyed this Bible and I plan on reading through the devotionals as time goes on.
