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!
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 :-)
