Mother’s Day Devotion Books: New themes and old favorites
By Alison Zeller
What do the moms in your church want for Mother’s Day (Sunday, May 14)?
Breakfast in bed? An afternoon nap? A clean house? A family dinner? If you’re a ministry leader, you can’t really fulfill this kind of Mother’s Day wish list . . . unless you have some pull with the husbands and children of your congregation!
Don’t worry - you can do something even better. You can give a Mother’s Day gift that’s uplifting, inspiring, and filled with the Word of God. Give moms a women’s devotional book from CTA!
All of CTA’s Mother’s Day books have themes and Bible verses that truly speak to women and the spiritual challenges they face. You’ll find devotions focused on Jesus’ selfless love and God’s vision for women. There’s Christian advice about how to handle hectic schedules, self-doubt, and loving the unlovable. Plus, all of the books are divided into easy-to-read sections so women can recharge and relax with just a few minutes each day.
Last year, CTA customer LuAnn Jansen gave the women in her congregation the Amazing Grace for a Woman’s HeartTM devotion book and pen gift set to celebrate Mother’s Day. “This set is perfect,” she said. “God pours out his amazing grace every day and this booklet shows all of those different ways. I have loved reading my booklet and that’s why I ordered them for all the moms in church.”
Amazing Grace for a Woman’s HeartTMis still available on the CTA website and this year, you’ll also find a brand-new devotion book for women. The Woman of God®: Living Loved devotion book gives women five weeks of devotions, Scriptures, and prayers that point to the everlasting love of God.
In the past, CTA has also released Mother’s Day prayer journals. Many churches handed out the Bouquet of Blessings and Love, Joy, Peace prayer journals during Mother’s Day luncheons, teas, and other celebrations.
“My ladies absolutely loved this journal!” said CTA customer Bernadette Wesolowski. “Not only is it a great way to spark a conversation with God, but you can also act on it with the tasks the prayer journal has listed on the bottom of the pages. It really is a great gift and you simply cannot beat the price. I’m so thankful I stumbled upon this product!”
Head to the CTA website to see the latest women’s prayer journal, Reflections: The Woman God Sees. This prayer journal gives women 56 pages of thought starters and Scripture, plus extra room for writing. It focuses on Isaiah 62:4, as well as other verses, and the devotions invite mothers to see themselves as God sees them: forgiven, precious heirs of the Kingdom.
