WATER MY SOUL
Darla Weaver writes out of her own struggles with Christian discipleship so that others will know Old Order Mennonites are human too and often long to walk closer to God. She bares her heart in these 90 devotionals drawn from her home-centered life in western Ohio’s hills. While family, gardening, cooking with home grown food, and living as naturally as possible off the land are the focus of her days, her utmost goal is to serve and honor the Christ she loves and serves through all aspects of her life. Women especially will relate to these meditations generously sprinkled with stories from Darla’s children, marriage, community and wider friends and family. Daily scripture readings, poignant prayers and journal prompts or ideas for active responses are included with each inspiring devotional.
This book is a really good idea, I so enjoyed how the author related how God speaks to us through ordinary daily busyness. If we listen even though we are active we will hear His voice…the key is listening and being attuned to the Spirit.
I use a devotional in the mornings and have been using this book in the evenings, it’s the perfect ending to my day. The cover is beautifully simple and the words will give you something to ponder and reflect. If we look we can see God’s greatness all around us.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
