60 Mother-Daughter Devotions for a Closer Relationship and Deeper Faith
Each devotion offers a:
These mother-daughter devotions are heartwarming and full of personal stories from a real-life mother-daughter duo. Bekah shares testimony about her difficult adjustment to middle school, stressing out over homework, navigating grief, seeking God, and much more. Stacey offers insights gleaned over 12 years as a mom as well as two decades spent mentoring teenage girls.
Who Is This Mother-Daughter Devotional Book for?
The devotional is written with a focus on ministering to girls ages 10-15; however, the topics discussed could be used for moms and daughters of any age. Most of the devotions are applicable regardless of age. If you are 80 and your daughter is 50, you are welcome here! Mom, you might need to offer additional explanations for some of the devotions if your daughter is younger than 10, but younger girls will glean insight from this book as well. Additionally, this is not a devotional exclusively for biological mothers and daughters. It could be used between a grandma and granddaughter, an aunt and a niece, an older sister and a younger sister, or an older mentor and a younger friend.
Women of all ages will take something away from this book!
With so many distractions competing for our attention, finding time to connect with each other and pursue God is more challenging now than ever. Let Girl to Girl help you build a stronger relationship while leading you deeper in your faith!
Fisher-Price Little People Nativity
If you have little ones, this is perfect for them! I remember when ours were little and they seemed to always want to play with our porcelain nativity set. And then there was the time I found our cat batting baby Jesus around on the floor. YIKES! No worries with this nativity set though. It's made for little hands to play with, and it's cat-friendly as well!

5 Gospel-Centered Books For Little Hearts & Minds
I love Elisabeth's post about 5 Gospel-Centered Books For Little Hearts & Minds. She writes, "When we became parents to our daughter Emersyn we agreed we wanted not only to instill a love for books but especially for books that would deepen her understanding of the Bible and cultivate a desire to know God. Therefore, from the very beginning, we’ve been building her little library with books that reveal God’s character, who we are as His creation, and how we can know and love Him better." Read more about the books here.
Elisabeth suggests these 5 books for your little ones:

Tiny Theologians (3 books)
Amy Gannett, founder and creator of the popular Tiny Theologians brand, aims to answer questions like these in Does God Sleep?: A Book About God’s Power. The book’s engaging, rhyming text and bold, delightful illustrations make God’s omnipotence (His all-powerful nature) understandable, relatable, and applicable for kids. Young readers will close the book knowing there’s no need to fear when falling asleep—for God is always awake, watching over us and working in the world.

Bible and Breakfast
I'll be honest with you, friend, when I first saw this I thought, This is gorgeous! But who has time for this? Maybe you don't have time for this every day, but what about Saturday mornings, holidays, winter breaks, spring breaks, and summer? This would be perfect for those days!
Are you starting your day on empty? Before your feet hit the ground, chaos drowns out any hope of quiet time with Jesus, as the alarm blares, kids run around the house, and your to-do list reminds you that you’re already behind.
If all that sounds too familiar, Bible and Breakfast is for you! In just a month, you’ll kickstart a morning habit of meeting with Jesus and eating a healthy breakfast every day. Join Bible teacher and author Asheritah Ciuciu for 31 devotions for busy women and 31 tasty breakfast recipes.
5 Great Stocking Stuffers For Bible Study
After I purchased my new Bible this past year, I immediately realized I needed a set of Bible tabs to help me, once again, find my way around this beautiful Love Letter. I headed over to The Daily Grace Co. and purchase a set of their Bible tabs and I AM IN LOVE!! They were so easy to install. I was a little worried about that, but trust me friend, it was simple and if I can do it, you can do it too!
The second thing I purchase, to help me with my Bible study, was a couple packs of sticky notes. I'm a sticky note queen! I love to make lists and jot notes to myself. Sometimes, you want to write notes in your Bible that are permanent, and somethings they just need to be temporary. I LOVE THESE STICKY NOTES for that! The Blush Bible Study Stickies and the Blush Planner Stickies are perfect!!
Next, I needed bookmarks, but I didn't want just your traditional book marks. What I found at The Daily Grace Co. was great! I didn't even know these existed—magnetic bookmarks. YES! First, I grabbed the Words of Life Magnetic Bookmark Set and then the Bible Study Mini Bookmark Set.
Prayer Journal for Women
This 52-week Scripture, devotional, and guided prayer journal continues to be one of our favorites!!
The journal includes: Scripture verses, reflections on the Word, and journaling prompts to guide your walk with God and strengthen your faith.
Verses are organized thematically: Love & Inner Beauty, Provision & Faithfulness, God’s Love, Adversity & Trials, Awe & Sovereignty, Strength Through Faith, Fear, and Grace & Forgiveness.
This 12-month journal is a perfect companion for individual worship or group Bible study.
Gratitude Journal: A 52-Week Guide to Cultivate an Attitude of Gratitude
Our favorite Gratitude Journal is now available spiral-bound!
I love having Scripture Art hanging on the walls of our home—especially in my kid's rooms. The power of putting Scripture on the walls of your home is that anyone who visits has the opportunity to read the Living Word of God, including your kid's friends. BONUS! And these are so lovely and affordable. You can hang them as posters or frame them. Either way, you are turning the focus of the room to God's Word, and that never returns void!

I have done a couple of Bible studies from The Daily Grace Co. but I didn't know they had a magazine. If it's as good as their Bible studies, I know it must be rich with theological truth.

Thank you so much for sharing with Grace and Truth!
