Reviewing "Bible Study for Busy Mamas, Thirty Days in 1 Corinthians 13"

Pam Forster's "Bible Study for Busy Mamas, Thirty Days in 1 Corinthians 13" is a gem of a book.  It breaks down a very in-depth study of one chapter of the Bible into manageable 5 minute bits which makes studying scripture regularly a very doable practice for busy moms of little ones. 
She uses underlining, highlighting and symbols to deeply examine each verse. I like this a lot because I find that adding a memorable visual aspect is something that helps cement what I learn during a study into the recesses of my brain. 
A really neat part of this book that I've never seen before is the children's study that parallels the adult study. In the introduction of the book Forster explains that there is no pressure to complete the kids study, but that it is available for moms who want to include their whole family in the practice of Bible Study. Her ideas are tailored very well toward kids with short attentions spans who need to be involved in a project or working with their hands in some way to keep them engaged.  The Author suggests that the kids' study can be used as a completely separate entity during family worship time at night with Dad. 
I would definitely recommend this book to moms who have their hands full with little ones and may struggle to find that regular Bible study time.  It's a pretty book with inviting pages, and the fact that each study portion takes about 5 minutes may just lead to a wonderful habit of always finding time to study no matter how busy we are.
