The One Year Devotions for Women: Becoming a Woman of Peace should be part of every mom’s quiet time in 2013. Ann Spangler takes her readers on a journey to discover God’s peace, or rather His “shalom.” In her book Introduction she states:
“Shalom sums up all the blessings God can give to those He loves.”
The book is set up in typical devotional fashion with a Scripture (NLT version), related devotion thought and short prayer. Every devotion is dated and includes one for February 29.
Each devotion is filled with hope and encouragement. They are the perfect way to start the day. The brief readings take little time, but are packed full of meaning. Around here, it’s hard to find a few minutes to myself without interruption. With these devotions I don’t have to worry about that. I can easily find where I’ve left off, and I’m eager to get back to the reading. These devotions stay with me. The Scriptures are short, and full of Spiritual meat. I would encourage you to take the more impacting ones and jot them on index cards and post on the bathroom mirror, or over the kitchen sink as a refresher throughout the day. Some of the prayers have been known to make it to index cards around here.
This is something every mom should make a resolution to start her day with. In fact, I’ll give three lucky ladies that opportunity.
