The latest offering from DaySpring, A Moment to Breathe, is a welcome addition to devotionals for women. This 365 day encouragement is subtitled “devotions that meet you in your everyday mess.” Each day begins with a scripture and then a vignette from one of eighty talented authors, followed by “A Moment to Breathe” that helps put the devotional into practical use. One difference from other devotionals is that there are no dates for each devotional and therefore, no guilt in not completing each day on schedule. Each day is numbered from 1 to 365 and frees the reader to go through the devotional at her own speed.
I noticed none of the eighty authors are really famous but are accomplished authors nevertheless. They are just ordinary women sharing how God has spoken into their own life in a way I can relate to. The back of the book lists the authors bios with many of them having websites I can check out.
A Moment to Breathe is a devotional I will turn to again and again and highly recommend to women looking to connect with stories from ordinary women in love with an extraordinary God.
