I am the ultimate speed reader; the queen of skim. It’s how I managed to read 54+ books last year with a baby. I’m always in a hurry though, not just when I’m reading.
When you have small children, though, hurrying makes for a grumpy family. One way that I’ve been working on slowing down has been to spend time with God every day. Multiple times a day, even. In addition to my normal devotions, I’m loving Cravings!
Cravings is a gift item that consists of cupcake with a deck of cards. It’s made to hold the deck of bite sized devotions and has a photo holder like wire to hold that days dessert. Meant to fill your Cravings for God during your busy life, it really works that way.
As the queen of quick, I read it several times throughout the day. I find that I am most able to think about it while preparing a meal while the kiddos are otherwise occupied. I was changing it daily until I was waylaid by one that I feel compelled to keep in the forefront; I’ve been working on that one for weeks!
I really like the idea and better than that, I love the practicality of having it displayed on the counter so that I can read it every time I’m in the kitchen (which feels like all the time!). It pretty enough that I like it there and the devotions with actions are just my style. This would make a great Mothers Day gift!
“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”
