Intimate Conversations: Devotions to Nurture a Woman's Soul...Review

About the book:
All women need strong relationships to sustain them. But the one relationship that often gets forgotten in the craziness of everyday life is the most important one of all--the one they have with God. This thoughtful devotional will lead women on a gentle, encouraging, and accessible journey toward a deeper, more satisfying relationship with God--one that is fueled by his grace and does not flounder with our imperfection or exhaustion. In each of these 52 devotions, Chole addresses real life issues that all women deal with. She includes Scripture and questions for reflective prayer or journaling. Whether moms, daughters, sisters, or wives, women at all points in their journey will cherish how these meditations draw them closer to God in the midst of untidy real life.

I thought this was a delightful little book. It shares 52 devotions, with themes that cover, among others: time, faith, trials, disappointment, family, love, and truth. Each devotion is short and includes vignettes, scriptures and thoughts to ponder.

It easily fits into a purse and these devotions are short enough to read while waiting in a car for your children, or long enough to ponder while sitting at home with a cup of cocoa. I found it thought-provoking and relevant to my life as a busy mom.

Thanks to Donna Hausler from the Baker Publishing Group for the opportunity to review this book. You can find out more about Alicia Britt Chole here. You can purchase the book here.
