Homespun Devotions: Volume 1 ~ Book Review

 A cheery hello to you! Happy November! 

It's been quite a while since I've shared a book review, so today I am thrilled to introduce you to Cheryl Smith's brand new book, Homespun Devotions.

About the book: 
Christian living is like a quilt—multi-colored scraps of wisdom gleaned and assembled one stitch at a time. We learn as we go, as the common thread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is woven throughout the everyday moments, events, and situations we encounter. Only He can tie the pieces together and create something of beauty that will serve to warm the hearts of others and surround them with His grace.

"Homespun Devotions: Volume One" begins a series of books that record the piecing together of many of the stories of my life and the rich spiritual truths God has imparted along the way. As you read these homespun narratives of family, love, marriage, motherhood, friendship, and the music that is such a part of my heritage, you will discover glimpses into moments of the soul-searching and intense struggles I have experienced while journeying to a place of complete surrender to the One who bled and died for me.

I point you to no denomination, religious group, or sect—only to the foot of the cross of Jesus Christ, where redemption, restoration, healing, and peace still freely and lavishly flow. He loves you with a never-ending, unconditional love—I pray you embrace this truth afresh and with a deeper persuasion as you read.

My thoughts: 
I loved this book! I had planned on reading through it slowly, one devotion a day, but instead I read three or four a day! Each devotion is around a verse and Mrs. Smith inserts a personal story that shows how God has used it in her life to help her grow closer to him. I came away feeling very encouraged in my faith and was reminded of simple, yet essential truths from God's word. The devotionals are encouraging and very timely, and I will definitely be reading this book again in the near future. I'd highly recommend this book to every Christian, young and old, who desires to have a deeper walk with God and who wants to be encouraged in the Lord. 

*I received this book from Mrs. Smith in exchange for a review. All thoughts are my own.*
