What a Great Word for Moms by Karen Moore is a devotional for Moms of all ages written to inspire and encourage them with words pulled from Bible verses. Words like courage, faith, hope, love, prayer, teach, and wisdom are included in this devotional--all words that speak to moms. Moore wants moms to focus on just one word a day in each reading. What a Great Word for Moms is divided into sections: Train your children in the way they should go, There's no one quite like mom, The Lord is mom's shepherd, and God's Promises. Each section includes several readings on the word of the day pulled from Bible verses. Each reading starts with a verse, a reading written by Moore, uplifting quotes, and then ends with a prayer and blessing. At the end of the book is a poem called, Can you help me? which is such a good reminder that when we turn to God, He helps us through the challenges of each day. The whole package could be truly uplifting to moms of all ages. Besides the writing in What a Great Word for Moms, I like the design. I liked how the readings are two-tone, reddish pink and black. The print is dark and easy to read and the cover is pretty without being too flowery. The whole book is uplifting. As you ponder one word a day and reflect on the whole reading, there is so much to think about and consider. I know What a Great Word for Moms would be a good Mother's Day gift for moms. . .I think it would be especially nice added to a gift basket or bag with some coffee/tea and a pretty cup. I received this book from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. #sponsoredbyfaithwords

What a Great Word for Moms is a fairly unique devotional focusing on various words from the Bible that motivate, uplift, and challenge us (moms.) Pros: I really enjoy devotionals. I like the numerous Scripture verses, prayers, and quotes that are used, and the conversational tone is engaging. A presentation page is included for gifting. Cons: I wish the book was a little more cohesive and structured. It feels a bit busy and disjointed. The font is rather small. Overall, I like the concept of this hardback devotional, but I’m not fully drawn in by it, and wish each devotion had designated lines or spaces for personal thoughts or note taking. Author: Karen Moore Publisher: FaithWords Pages: 144 Source: I received a complimentary copy from the publisher and was not obligated to write a favorable review.

Each word is genuinely directed toward aligning your work, your spiritual growth, and your hopes and dreams as you are molded and shaped into the person God intends you to be,” Karen Moore writes in the introduction of her book, What a Great Word for Moms. ~ What ~ At one-hundred-and-forty-four pages, this small hardbound is designed to encourage, challenge, and bless mothers at any age or stage of life. Using mainly the New Century Version of the Holy Bible, also referenced are the NIV, NKJV, NLT, KJV, and CEV. The ending includes a final poem by the author, acknowledgments, an alphabetical listing of words used, and the writer’s biography. The book is separated into four sections, with each containing ten chapters of ten different words from the Bible. The divisions include Training Your Children in the Way They Should Go, There’s No One Quite Like Mom, The Lord is Mom’s Shepherd, and God’s Promises. Some of the random words concentrated on include attitude, kindness, hope, prayer, patience, courage, compassion, think, heart, family, laughter, and beauty. Each word is the entire focus of a chapter, beginning with the word title, byline, and a written-out Bible verse. Several paragraphs are included regarding the topic, followed by quotes by famous individuals and more verses. The ending has a prayer written out in red ink. ~Why ~ I love devotionals that do not have commentary of the writer’s personal experiences and appreciate that this one does not. Instead, there are encouragements that promote a “you can do it by trusting in God” and “the Lord will get you through this” attitudes. Including the quotes further exemplifies the word topic. The prayers are uplifting as they worship our Savior and thank Him for what He has done for us. Able to read each in under a few minutes, the devotions are short and to the point. One of my favorite chapters was on the word persevere, with Hebrews 10:36 NIV written out. The content reminds us that God is always with us so we need to keep moving forward, trusting in Him in all we do. Quotes are from H. Jackson Brown Jr., Bernard of Clairvaux, the Mom’s Creed adapted from Brother Lawrence, Aesop, Calvin Coolidge, Helen Keller, and 2 Corinthians 4:8-9 NIV. The prayer asks for patience during the challenges of parenting, perseverance when exhausted, and thankfulness for the family He has given. ~ Why Not ~ Mothers who do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ will not appreciate this read. With the book only containing forty chapters, it may not be for some women who are looking for a daily or yearly devotional. Others may prefer longer or deeper devotionals that explain the Bible verse in depth or only reading the Scriptures as their daily time with God. ~ Wish ~ Adding a ribbon marker would be ideal. I prefer using the King James Version for most Bible verse translations. ~ Want ~ If you like a quick read with quotes about keywords in the Bible and how they relate to motherhood, this would make a great gift for that mom, sister, aunt, or friend who needs to be reminded and encouraged of God’s presence. Due to its limitation, it should be read daily along with the Bible. Thanks to Hachette Book Group, FaithWords, and the author for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
