Trusting God

"Trusting God" by Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith, and Mary Southerland is a "Girlfriends in God Faith Adventure" that uses personal stories and experiences to help us relate to how we can build our trust in our Creator. This book is meant to be read as a devotional, with chapters being divided by weeks, and each chapter having one short reading for each day of that week, for twelve weeks.

What I liked about this devotional is that it is similar to talking with your own girlfriends about personal experiences. We get to share in experiences, both good and difficult, just as we would with our friends in real life. This book offers a lot of great wisdom when it comes to building the trust in our relationship with God, and I thought it was very well written.

Each day's devotional offers a Bible verse, called "Today's Truth" which is the basis on which the personal story is based. Then, each devotional ends with a short prayer that is also tied into the general theme of that day's reading. At the end of the week, there is a short section named, "Now It's Your Turn" which allows you a place for reflection and to answer short questions about your personal relationship with God, as well as a space to maintain a journal based on the devotions from that week.

I would give this book a 5/5 - great for the busy mom or the corporate businesswoman. Versatile, funny, engaging, and inspiring.
