In the trenches of motherhood, I often find myself craving time with the Lord. Uninterrupted, quiet, devoted time seems like such a treat, and it's just not something I get much of these days. So any tool that helps me to soak up bits of His word throughout the day is a welcome one. When I received this unique devotional, I set it up on my desk, right by my computer, and I love having a Bible verse and short encouragement staring back at me when I'm sittin down for a few quiet moments. Plus, it's cute, too, so that's a fun bonus. Read on to learn a little about the Cravings devotional and how you can help author/creator Carey Bailey celebrate its release.
Cravings is a collection of card-size devotionals based on the Psalms. They are written to help mothers develop their relationship with God in the midst of motherhood.Each card contains a scripture for the day, a “thoughtlet,” and an action idea. As moms crave the sweet morsels from God’s Word, they can draw a card from a delectable Cravings holder—a pink cupcake!—that also displays the daily card for hands-free viewing. Versatile enough to fit with any feminine décor in a dining nook, a prayer closet, a kitchen--wherever you‘d want Scripture at your fingertips. If you find you need Cravings around the home, just one may not be enough!Cravings can be a mom’s daily devotional, a supplement to her regular quiet time, or even doubled up during the day. The set of 40 cards offers over a month’s worth of Cravings in whatever way serves the spiritual needs of individual moms.
About the Author Carey Bailey is a recovering perfectionist, wife, proud mama and Family Life director for her church in Surprise, Ariz. On the side she loves party planning, crafting, and pursuing her dream of writing. She has a degree in religion from Westminster College and writes at her blog at www.carebaileyonline.com. "When I became a mom I lost my God time," says Carey Bailey. "I couldn't figure out how to fit it in, since everything but that time was a priority. So I made note cards that I set around my house with scriptures written on them. Even when my arms were too full of babies, laundry, and diapers to pick up a Bible, I could easily read God's words of encouragement that I was starving for." And Cravings--The Devotional was born.
