review: Good Morning Lord by Sheila Walsh

So, a long time ago I received another book to review from booksneeze.

I review for BookSneeze®

Unfortunately, life happened (in the form of getting engaged, switching jobs, moving...again, etc) and I kind of forgot to post the review.

So, here's the really, really late version!

Let me just start off by saying...

Devotional books?  Not (normally) my thing.  Normally I find them a bit trite and simplistic. But when I saw this one was written by Sheila Walsh I decided to take a chance.  And I'm glad I did!  I knew from the subtitle that I was going to at least mildly enjoy this one ;-)

Sheila has such a refreshing voice, such a way of capturing insights.  And at the same time, you can imagine yourself having a conversation with her over a strong cup of coffee.  Nothing in this book is "out of reach", but it is theologically sound and Spirit-breathed. 

There are the expected short (2-3 paragraph) excerpts and questions for each day...but somehow this one doesn't feel trite or too simple.  It is focused and clear, and often spoke to just where I was.

I found myself reading pretty much the entire book in one sitting (perhaps THIS is why devotionals aren't my thing) but I've now tucked it in my laptop bag so that I can take it to work each day and read it as intended.

Thanks (once again) to booksneeze for giving me the chance to read another new favorite :-)
