Blog Tour for "The Busy Mom's Devotional: 10 Minutes a Week to a Life of Devotion" by Lisa Bergren
Think it's impossible to have a spiritual life AND manage family life? There are many days that plainly feel like an exercise of survival. But living a life of devotion means seeing Christ in everything--from changing a diaper to a husband's tender kiss.
Join Lisa Bergren for a year of "been there" devotions--readings from a mom who lives like you do, in the trenches, but strives to see Jesus beside her, through it all. Do just one devotional a day (or a week!), and you'll begin to see life with more depth and clarity than ever before.
I liked that this book is arranged into four sections, Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. Also, the author has a small place at the beginning of each devotional for the reader to jot down "Things on My Mind," so that the reader can let go of that list and devote herself to the insight at hand. There is also a section called, "What is God saying to me in this?" for the reader to jot down any thoughts about what she just read. "Making the scripture mine" is a place for the reader to make application, and "My prayer" encourages the reader to record her own prayers, notes, phrases, words, images, or whatever helps her express her response to the passage.
I began reading in the Spring section and thoroughly enjoyed Lisa's experiences in Italy with her young daughter. I found those pieces to be a breath of fresh air in the devotional genre. It was fun experiencing Italy vicariously through Lisa and her insights.
And by the way, don't you love this beautiful cover?
