A Sweet Devotional for Moms

by SomeGirl on May 11, 2012 · 1 comment

Just in time for Mother’s Day (or at least in time for you to still feel good about making an extra purchase because it’s Mother’s Day weekend and, hey, you deserve it!). ;)

Let me introduce you to a sweet devotional tool for moms and an even sweeter blogging friend who created this lovely product – Meet Carey Bailey and hear how she fills her “cravings” in this super cute (and short) video…



I don’t know about you, but I can totally relate to Carey and the other moms in that video! And this quote from Carey…

“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”

Time with little ones moves at warp speed and sitting still with uninterrupted concentration for very long is a rare occurrence.

This is where Carey’s Cravings {the devotional} comes in…

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.

Isn’t that a great idea? And isn’t the whole cupcake holder and cards adorable? I have mine sitting on our breakfast table where I can easily grab a card to read with a cup of tea (ok, really an ice cold coke, but a cup of tea sounds so much more sophisticated). ;)

Because it’s always nice to know a little more about the people behind the products, I thought I’d share a little bit more about the super sweet creator of Cravings {the devotional}…
