Meal Time Devotions

Do you want a way to get the focus on Jesus at your dinner table? I know I do. Finding a devotion book that is short enough to keep the little ones attention, but also be deep enough for a tween. This is a hard task, but Whit's End Meal Time Devotions by John Whittaker does just that. The devotions are only a page long. They begin with mealtime prayer that is written out. Then it goes to the appetizer which has questions to answer. The next part is the main course which is where the verses are connected. Table talk are review questions that go over the story. Then the last part is the vitamins and minerals which is the summary. The whole devotional for the day can be done is 10 minutes are less. I think this is a good amount of time for people with small children. I enjoyed the book and would recommend it. I was given the book by Tyndale House in exchange for an honest review.

Sent

Have you ever dreamed about what it would be like moving to another country to pursue your calling? Well I had never really given it any thought until I picked up this book. Sent by Hillary Alan is so encouraging. She is leading the American dream and then her life changes drastically. I love how the author explains how hard the transition was and the costs associated with such a life style change, but that the author wouldn't change what happened either. Alan takes us on the journey from America to South East Asia and it makes you feel like you are right there with her.

I love how the author makes you think about what you really value in life and bring it back to what really matters Jesus. This is an inspirational book that makes you not want to waste another encounter with anyone. Just slow down and focus on relationships. It made me re-think some of the business in my life. Is this what God really wants me to be doing....
