When God Says Wait: A Devotional Thought Journal by Elizabeth Laing Thompson

44025166When God Says Wait: A Devotional Thought Journal


A job, a true love, a baby, a cure. . .
We’re all waiting for something from God.
And the place between His answers can feel like a wasteland where dreams—and faith—go to die.
When we’re waiting, we wonder, “Why?”, “Why me?”, and “How long?”



This is a beautiful, hardcover devotional that is written from Elizabeth Laing Thompson's book title When God Says, Wait. This devotional book is awesome and is perfect for the season I am in, especially since I loved the book When God Says Wait. This devotional book has a generous amount space to dialogue with God about your prayers, thoughts and feelings regarding the devotional. This devotional has great thought provoking questions and thoughts that guided my prayers and feelings, which I really enjoyed. I loved the journal prompts and it also has a beautiful dark pink ribbon marker. I really love this devotional and have found it to be perfect for this season of my life. This is a great gift and is perfect for someone who is going through a difficult trial. I highly recommend this book.

Dare to See: Discovering God in the Everyday by Katie Brown

43522623Dare to See: Discovering God in the Everyday


Dare to See was an awesome and easy autobiography/ memoir that I was able to read in two sitting. Katie is an author that writes from her heart through a series of essays based on her own life experiences. She writes topically, which makes reading this book super fun and conversational. I feel as though she is sitting across the table from me. This book could be read as devotional, especially with the way the chapters are divided. 

I really enjoyed this book and thought it was an easy, but enjoyable read. This would make a great gift or a devotional. Thank you to the publisher for providing this book. #sponsoredbyfaithwords

Garden of Faith: A 365-Day Devotional Journal

40606015
Growing in faith can be difficult if you don't have deep roots to strengthen or nourish you. These daily devotions provide biblical wisdom to help readers cultivate a purposeful life full of courage, faith, and love. The journaling lines are the perfect place to praise God's beautiful creation, reflect on the day's Scripture reading, or record prayers and dreams.









My Thoughts:
Garden of Faith is a 356 daily devotional journal that helps the reader focus on God daily through a time of surrendering time and putting God first and then writing down in the space provided how God is talking to the reader. This devotional is a soft cover, but is very sturdy. I love Ellie Claire brand of devotionals because they are sturdy devotionals that I can look back through the years and see how God has moved through areas in my life. Their devotional journals also have ribbon markers, which I love. The space provided to write is perfect because I think it is adequate space between the devotional and writing. These devotional journals are great gift items. I highly recommend picking up Garden of Faith today! This is an awesome devotional to keep your eyes fixed on God's creation.

I Am Redeemed: Learning to Live in Grace by Mike Weaver, Jim Scherer

I Am Redeemed: Learning to Live in Grace

Mike Weaver, lead singer of Big Daddy Weave, shares from personal experience how when all we can see is our struggles and failures, God reminds us of who we are. . . . His children. Loved. Set free. Redeemed.
46114616I Am Redeemed is an open book of Mike Weaver's life, bringing into the light everything from his battle with self-hatred to the near death of his brother and bandmate, who ultimately had both feet amputated to save his life. Mike shares the lessons learned in the loss of his father and dealing with the spirit of suicide within his band, Big Daddy Weave.
At the lowest of lows, with Mike feeling rejected and alone, God broke through to speak truth and life into him. Thankful for God's plan and timing and methods, he is especially grateful for the new identity Jesus had paid for on the cross. In spite of his faults and failures, Mike learned that only God can take the stuff you hate about yourself and use it to reach people.

A Redesigned Life: Uncovering God's Purpose When Life Doesn't Go as Planned by Tracy Davis Steel

A Redesigned Life: Uncovering God's Purpose When Life Doesn't Go as Planned


42244987
The very existence of HGTV, the DIY movement, and Pinterest proves we love great design. We adore plans and perfectly staged rooms. But what happens when we discover we are living a life we did not design? When our dreams lie in tatters or when we experience loss of any kind? What happens when life feels like one big Pinterest fail? Where is God in the midst of what doesn't make sense? Does he care?
