Prayers for a Simpler Life by Faith Sommers

My Take : I was suppose to post this review last week but I didn't get the book until the day I was suppose to post so then I was suppose to post the review either on Monday or Tuesday of this week and for one reason or another I didn't find time to do that so I am posting today. I am a bit happy that I didn't post till today because that gave me alittle more time to savor this book a bit more slowly which is kind of what this book is about. Taking your time to spend meaningful time with the Lord. Not just a read a short scripture and a little devotional about it then pray and your done short of thing. Don't get me wrong these devotions aren't long and the Bible passages aren't either but they give you the opportunity to reflect on what you are reading and to really think about it. Each devotion has a passage to look up and small article to read , a prayer and a reflection thought. There are 12 whole weeks to really dig into. each week is a different topic. I look forward to using this devotional every year. It would be perfect for the beginning of the year. Highly recommend.
I received a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion from MennoMedia.org.
