Prayers for a Simpler Life: Meditations from the Heart of a Mennonite Mother
Do your quiet times with God feel disconnected from the rest of your overflowing days? Shouldn't our devotions affect how we live our lives? In this 90-day devotional for women, plain Mennonite mother and wife Faith Sommers helps connect your moments with the Lord to the rest of your life. Steeped in the faith of Amish and Mennonites, who maintain that how we live is as important as what we say, Sommers' words hold gentle warmth and wise nudging for readers tired of disjointed living. Offering daily devotions, prayers, journal prompts, and ideas for how to simplify your life and strengthen your faith, Prayers for a Simpler Life guides readers toward a deeper commitment to the way of Jesus.
Spiritual truths are plentiful in this wonderfully written book...sometimes you just want to know God is near and these devotional readings and prayers remind me of just that.
I am also reminded of His mercy and love and how life can sometimes be overwhelming, a simple prayer to the Father is all it takes...I feel His Presence and know that I will get through this.
This book is on my nightstand where it will stay within reach at the end of the day.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
