I’m so excited to share this devotional with you because it was written by one of my absolute favorite historical fiction authors and not only do I think it’s an incredibly encouraging devotional, I love getting to support my author friends in different writing adventures!
The One Year Home and Garden Devotions offers an encouraging, applicable, sometimes humorous, and always personal word each day for contemporary women of all ages who delight in being busy at home. The devotions are written in first person, offering transparency and personal life lessons like the following:
“There is something poignant and meaningful about upcycling an abandoned planter with its well-earned patina while considering how the lines life has etched on us actually make us more appealing.”
This is a wonderful devotional! Even if you aren’t talented when it comes to gardening (say, like the author of this blog), you’ll still enjoy it. Each month kicks off with something fun for the house (and you also have the info of where to print them!). From scented linen water, recipes (I chuckled at the one called Boyfriend-Bait Beef Stroganoff), desserts (muy importante!), gardening ideas, household tips, creative gifts and all kinds of other fun things.
Each day’s devotional felt more like a conversation with a friend. You know when you’re with your closest friends, talking about all the Lord is doing and teaching you? That’s how each devo felt and it was so refreshing! This made me want to spend a day with Sandra and trying some of her yummy desserts (I promise I don’t mean that in a creepy way either!). Definitely one for your bookshelf!
Do you have a favorite devotional?
