Book Review: "The One Year Devotions for Women: Becoming a Woman at Peace"

If most of us were to be honest, we'd probably admit that there is a lack of peace in our lives. Perhaps by choice or circumstance, life happens. Most days I go to bed feeling like I've just spent the day riding a wild bull at the same time I work on physics equations, while I play with my kids and make dinner. In other words, I spend most days overwhelmed and tired just from life.

So, when the opportunity came to review a new devotional by Ann Spangler, The One Year Devotions for Women: Becoming a Woman at Peace, I jumped on it. Like I jump on that wild bull every morning when the kids wake up. I need more peace in my life, and I was excited to use this devotional as a means for getting a little bit of perspective during my daily (okay, I try to make them daily, but doesn't usually happen that way), devotions.

The devotion is laid out from January 1-December 31, with each day starting with a Bible verse, the author's personal story and moral, which ties into the daily verse, and finishes with a short prayer. I really liked the tone of the devotional, which seemed calm and soothing. Obviously, since the point of this devotional is to bring women to a place of peace, this is a good thing. The author's personal stories and anecdotes are well-written and enjoyable to read. When I get five minutes to myself (or 30 seconds, for that matter), I like to read the current devotion and think on it during the day.

I would recommend this book to any woman. I think it has some great insights and really does encourage peace.
