Devotions for Women

"The One Year Devotions for Women: Becoming a Woman at Peace" by Ann Spangler is a wonderful devotional that really caters to women. This devotional offers a daily devotion for each day of the year, concisely written and relevant to the lives of women. The devotions are dated, which is the only thing I didn't particularly like - if I miss a day I feel like I am getting behind, or missing out on something, whereas in non-dated devotion, you can just pick up where you left off.

The central theme of this devotional is peace, and how to find peace, which is a topic I believe nearly anyone could benefit from. As a busy mom myself, I sometimes feel like one day the chaos of being mom and wife are going to spin out of control. Peace is something I know I could use a little more of!

Each devotion starts with a Bible verse, followed by an elaboration, explanation, or story that expounds on the verse and the topic of the day. Each devotion closes with a suggested prayer that is short and easy to say. This is an ideal devotional for busy moms because the devotions are only one page each. I am a mom to two young children, and found that the length of these devotions was perfect, and easily fit into any five minutes that I had to spare during the course of the day.

I would give this book a 5/5, and highly recommend it for moms, grandmothers, aunts, or sisters. Well written, easy to read, and focused on women. Great devotional.

FTC DISCLOSURE: I received this book for free from Tyndale House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
