Daily Devotional for Moms of Preschool Aged Children (Via the YouVersion Bible App)

Participants can read along at their own pace, and there is an opportunity for reflection at the end of each day’s study. This has proven to be a flexible way to be in faith community and to engage with fellow moms facing similar circumstances during this strange time.
