Cravings: Desiring God in the Midst of Motherhood Review



This season of my life has been extra crazy busy lately...my boys are 18 and 16, the oldest is graduating from high school within the month, the youngest started driving and ministry season has been packed, so finding time to carve out the extended quiet time that I have had in the past has been difficult. Just about the time I was getting frustrated by my shortened quiet times the set arrived at my door.


What a sweet little surprise it was to open up the box with this set it in. I had no expectations other than to enjoy a cute little cupcake card holder and maybe a few simple and sweet devotionals. What I didn't expect was that this would be exactly what I needed at this season of my life. Something short, simple and yet also incredibly powerful.


I was able to focus on one thing each day. One concept, one Bible verse, one short devotional and one action step or thought for the day...which was perfect. What I found it that it actually was just what I needed at just the right time. I am so thankful Carey did this "Cravings" set...I can't wait to pickup a few for some of my other busy mommy friends too.

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.

So I made note cards that I set around my house with scriptures written on them.
