Almost every mom is often overworked, overwhelmed, tired and all she needs is some rest.
I always get to that point too.
And one way we can recharge our batteries as busy moms and get refreshed is through daily quiet time with inspiring bible study for moms.
Bible study for moms written by other moms will inspire you and help you remember your struggles and hard times as a mom are not yours alone.
We can learn from their experiences, making you feel better to know your challenges are not unique to you.
Bible study helps you be efficient with your time, but without a plan, you waste a lot of time trying to figure out what to read and what God’s trying to tell you. It can be frustrating.
Let’s look at some of them…

13. The Confident Woman: Start Living Today Boldly and Without Fear
When you think of an epidemic, maybe the first thing that comes to mind is probably some kind of disease.
But that’s not the case here.
Our society has an insecurity epidemic-, particularly in women. They pretend to be secure, which only leads to feelings of shame. Lack of self-confidence causes great difficulty in relationships of all kinds, for example, in marriages can even lead to divorce.
In The Confident Woman, Joyce Meyer explores the seven characteristics of women with confidence. They include a woman who knows her worth and refuses to live in fear and does not compare herself with others.
Joyce explains the confidence stems from being positive in your actions and living honestly but mostly having faith in ourselves and God.
