When you have a mother who walks with the Lord daily, any day deserves a special thanks. However, when it’s time to shop for a special gift, there are just some gifts that she will cherish forever. Whether you are starting early for Christmas as some people do to spread their spending out, or for her birthday or some other memorable day, finding a Christian gift might pose a bit of a challenge. Here are the top five gifts for Christian moms to help you along the way.
Perhaps the most wonderful gift you can give a Christian mom is a Bible case. Every week she takes her Bible to church and Sunday school and wouldn’t it be nice to see her with a personalized Bible case in fabric that no other mother has? Bible cases are not only decorative but functional as well for keeping notes, pens, keys and other items with her at church, so keep this one at the top of your list!
Mothers who live by their faith also stay close to the Lord in prayer. Throughout the day there will be little things she wants to remember to pray about, neighbors who call for prayers and people she knows who are suffering or in despair for whom she wants to pray. A daily prayer journal is the perfect gift for a Christian mom, so keep this in mind as well.
While many people communicate online or through text messages, many ladies love to jot notes to friends and family near and far. Christian stationery with Scripture verses or lovely religious scenes are the perfect gift for traditional moms who still like doing things the ‘old fashioned’ way. Many times you can find sets that have envelopes and pens that match the stationery so this is something you may want to consider – a complete set with everything at hand. In fact, why not throw in a book of special postage stamps complete with decals for decorating those envelopes? Just an extra something because mom is extra special too!
Today’s music artists are really amazing. A Christian CD or two from her favorite artists would be a perfect gift that she can listen to in the car, while doing her housework or during her times of prayer as well. Find out who she likes and make an effort to find the latest recording from that artist or group, one she doesn’t already have.
Busy moms never seem to take enough time to just sit back and relax. There are so many wonderful Christian books on the market that you could find something of interest to almost ‘force’ her to sit and read. After all, who can resist a chance to read the newest Christian fiction which is so rewarding and something that will inspire her on her daily journey?So, here you have the top five gifts for Christian moms and you’re sure to find one she doesn’t already have. Just know that no matter what you give your mom, she’ll treasure it with love because it was a gift from her child. By giving her a Christian gift you’ll be telling her how much her faith means to you and that you are grateful for all she’s done and all she is.

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
