Devotions From The Garden ~ Finding Peace And Rest In Your Busy Life. By Miriam Drennan

Devotions from the garden; book reviewDevotions from the Garden is a book of ninety short meditations from God’s Word, illustrated with beautiful photos of flowers, dewdrops and gardening. Miriam Drennan draws parallels between gardening and our journey of faith.

I enjoyed this devotional. It is short, quick daily readings, that anyone can find time for. And the pictures are so pretty! It isn’t a deep, theological book, rather, it is gentle reminders of God’s goodness and our dependence on Him.

Personally, even when I have only a few minutes, (actually, especially when I only have a few minutes!) I tend to pick up the Bible, rather than a devotional. I get more meat that way! 😉 But this is a nice coffee-table book to peruse when I am sitting here in the evening and want to just read a quick bit of something.

If you enjoy gardening, you might enjoy this one. :)

Book Review: A Father’s Love, by David Miles

A Father’s Love is an ‘I Can Read!’ level 2 book. It is a simple retelling of the classic Bible story about the prodigal son. The younger son wants to live it up in the city, but after his money is gone, so are his friends. So he eventually returns to throw himself on his Father’s love and forgiveness.
A Fathers loveThis book is perfect for my 6 year old beginning reader. She enjoyed the story and the bright artwork. She still had some trouble with some of the words, but she’s not quite a level 2 reader yet.

I know this will be a favorite book in our house. I am always in search of good, wholesome Christian children’s books. This one is based on the NIV version.
