Some of these bible verses may work better than others for your creative project or card but I’ve added all of them in here that I could think of, and I’ll just let you choose which ones you may or may not want to use.

There are just some of the bible verses that I could find and felt were appropriate for Mother’s Day.  I am sure there are many more out there than I have listed on this site.  I have tried to make sure everything is accurate on this page but if you find an error or know one that I have not listed here, please click on the contact link below and share this with me.

I hope that these verses will inspire you as you do your projects for Mother’s Day.  Whatever your project is, I am sure your mom will enjoy and treasure what you have done.  To me, there is no greater gift than one that is given from our hearts.
