Bookshelf Monday :: 35

I love how this little library is decorated. All the little splashes of green throughout the room tie it beautifully together. I especially like the shelves full of magazines at the bottom because my pack rat tendencies are not entirely exclusive to just books. Plus, the chairs look very comfy too. Bookmarking this for my future home someday!

About Cravings:
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 d├ęcor 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.

I love all things related to cupcakes. This looked so cute and after finding out that it is a devotional especially for moms, I was SO glad to be able to review this. It sits happily on my desk now and gives me daily encouragement as a mommy alongside a Bible verse. It is very cute to look at so it definitely catches my eye which is definitely helpful because there are so many distractions, especially as a mother of a darling, but very active toddler. It's been such a challenge (mostly because of my own fault) to make quiet time with God each day a priority in my new life as a mama. My only complaint is that I wish the cards were a little thicker. They seem to get easily mangled in the clip.

Thank you Carey for making such a fun devotional to help me with my walk and get focused on God first thing in the day and throughout the day as well. It reminds me that God craves a relationship with me, just like I should with him every day. Thank you for making me hungry to be in the ever so sweet presence of God.

"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"
