As a stay at home mother and entrepreneur, it can be a little lonely. It can be easy to become idle when you have the whole day at your disposal. And sometimes your schedule doesn’t quit fit for you to hang out with your girlfriends. Luckily, there are plenty of resources online and off to keep you engage and current in the times. If you’re like me, you spend most of your day researching anything from recipes to devotions and everything in between. For the next few weeks, I will share some of my favorite resources that keep me encouraged and educated from the comfort of my work desk!
Let’s start off with books… Are they still even a thing? With digital prints and audio materials available, it’s easy to make the transition to something convenient, especially when you have a house full of kids 24/7 and not real time to sit and read, audio books are a great resource. I don’t have a large digital collection, but what I do enjoy is listening to the bible.
Faith Comes by Hearing has an amazing bible app, Bible.Is
I can listen to the bible with my phone anywhere. I even play it while my children are studying or doing school work. It makes a big difference when we listen to the bible versus music. Their mindset is completely different and calm. This app comes in many translations and versions making it accessible to anyone, anywhere!
Next… my daily devotionals. I have plenty, but this trio is what I refer to almost always. AND they were all gifted to me! #winning
Daily Wisdom for Women – I had this devotional for some years now and I can’t get enough of it. Even though the devotions are short in reading, it provides you little nuggets of encouragement and is a good resource to begin a bible study if you are unsure what to study.
Trusting in God 366 Devotions– This devotional was actually a birthday gift from my Pastor. I cherish this devotional. It is full of insight and scriptural references. I just love it. Here’s a snippet of today’s reading: February 19- The Names of God– “His name is clearly written across creation: on every dewdrop, every cloud, on every majestic mountain and in every green valley.” It’s so vivid and colorful in its writing.
101 Most Powerful Proverbs in the Bible– If you know me, you’ll know the book of Proverbs to be my favorite book! This isn’t a devotional per se but it is a reference of what each proverb mean. It can be used as a great resource in studying the book of Proverbs.
This is my list of resources for devotionals. I keep my reading simple yet powerful. Next time, we will look at my marriage and mommy-themed resources!
