I’m always looking for a Bible study that’s a little more than a devotional, but not as time consuming as other Bible studies. Pam Forster has written a book with busy moms in mind. This book, Thirty Days of Bible Study for Busy Mamas – Colossians 3, allows any mom to study the Bible in any short time period she has throughout the day. Ms. Forster starts off slowly, explaining how to study the Bible in a meaningful way. Then, she guides the reader through Colossians 3 while including topics like the importance of context, memorizing Scripture, and different versions of the Bible throughout the study. At the end of the book, Ms. Forster includes extra material including Materials for Your Study, Ideas for marking in Your Bible, How to Make Time When You Have Small Children, and How to Study on Your Own.
I really enjoyed this book. First, I like to be able to interact with the text through answering questions, writing lists, or making marks in my Bible. I also appreciated the “Catch Up Days” she incorporated throughout the month. I know, as a mom, I get behind in my Bible study, and I felt like there were built in days to get back on track. Finally, Ms. Forster encouraged readers to include their kids in the study. She included applicable activities to do with kids, no matte what age.
Overall, I would recommend this book to any mom who only has a few minutes to spend in God’s Word, but wants more than a devotional. Pam Forster understands the demands placed on a mom, and she’s written a Bible study that fits into a busy mom’s schedule.
