Devotions for Mom
Finding time in our busy boss mom schedules to work on devotional journals or scripture reading can be hard! However, it’s time we let go of the ‘must always be busy’ mentality and turn our focus on to the right things. This includes spiritual self-care!
Check out my 3 favorite ways to add in simple devotional journals or bible studies to my hectic day!
- Over morning coffee – YES! I definitely have a more productive day when I start it close to Him. Once I’m up, showered, and ready for the day – I set my youngest up with a light breakfast and encourage her to play quietly after. This gives me a good 10 minutes to sip my coffee slow (just how I like it) and dive into simple scripture passages.
- During a Planned Quiet Time – Once upon a time, I had little kids and quiet time was a daily reality. While I don’t utilize this time anymore, it is such a great option for the busy mom of littles! You can find out more about how I planned quiet time as part of our homeschool schedule RIGHT HERE.
- After Bedtime Routines – I love this option and it is a great go to if you have early risers or littles that soak up your attention all day long. The biggest issue I have with this being the only devotional time for mom – is consistency. Sometimes it can be really hard to commit to opening up a devotional journal after a long exhausting day.
5 Simple Devotional Journals
You Can Easily Fit in Each Day…
I’m a huge fan of simple.
Simple days. Simple activities. These are the things I live for!
If you crave simple devotional journals and scripture studies, check out some of my favorite options! While some of these I have personally used (and loved), others are simply on my wish list for later!
Be Still and Know…
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalms 46:10
This is one of my absolute favorite scripture verses of all time and this simple devotional journal has been my go to this stressful year!
Opening with prayer, I can easily get through the daily reading in about 5 minutes.
However when I have the time, I do love to dive a little deeper and journal or doodle as well.
This is such a simple option for your morning devotion time.

Lord I Need You…
Lord, I need You, oh, I need You
Every hour I need You
My one defense, my righteousness
Oh God, how I need You
I absolutely love this worship song and find myself singing it out loud multiple times a week. It captures the deep desire we (as christians) should always have in our hearts. The desire to draw close to and lay our burdens on Him – because ultimately we always need Him.
This simple devotional journal is filled with short daily prayers to our Heavenly Father.
I cannot wait to dive into this one!

100 Days of…
If you crave something simple, yet a little more in-depth – these 100 Days of journals are a great option!
Not only are they packed with simple devotional stories, but they also include scripture verses and a daily prayer!
Another fun addition to this journal? The variation of dots, lines, and grids on the journaling pages make it the perfect go to option for any bullet journal lover!
I was recently gifted one of these devotional journals and am so excited to use it in the near future!

Weekly Prayer Project…
I just recently purchased this one and plan to start it mid fall so that the gratitude section falls over the Thanksgiving season. This one looks so incredible, you guys!
Unlike some of the other devotional journals mentioned above, this one is a weekly study and I intend to use it along side a separate daily devotion. I chose to include it in the list simply because it’s a beautiful (and simple) way to include target prayer in your busy schedule.
With 7 unique prayer subjects, you can be intentional in your prayer life!
Each week is complete with a small devotion, scripture verse, and journaling room to create a list of specific prayers.
I am so excited about this one!
Want to join me in this study? Purchase The Weekly Prayer Project and start your study on Monday October 5th.
A Standard of Grace
This one is at the very top of my wish list!! I just started using the Simplified Planner by Emily Ley and I am so excited to get one of her devotional journals in my hands!!
Much like the weekly prayer project journal – this is a weekly study that encourages intentional prayer for a consecutive 52 weeks and would work great in addition to a daily bible study!
While I don’t own this one just yet, it’s totally going on my list for next year! I’ve read such wonderful reviews about this study and with the excess amount of writing space, it definitely seems right down my alley! I’m a huge pen to paper kinda gal.
If you love the idea of writing out intentional prayers try adding A Standard of Grace to your weekly devotional studies!
