I found that this past week, it was hard to get a moment to think. I had tons of projects going on at work, choir rehearsal, leading kids’ church and more. I always find that when my week gets like that, one of the first things to go is my quiet time (well, that and exercise! :)).

Mind you, I’m not perfect at spending time with God every morning, but even if it’s in the evening, or my lunch break, I know that it’s really important.

That’s why I’m excited to share these two downloadable devotionals with you, one of which I was blessed enough to contribute on! Each of these is filled with personal stories from women just like you and me. Real women who struggle with real things, but have seen God at work in the midst of it all. Some are funny, some are heartwarming, some are moving. Each devotion is bite-sized, and they really are perfect for a moment alone with our wonderful God. So now I’ll have some extra fodder for the weeks when it seems hard to get my quiet time in! I am so excited to dig into both of these books and take away all the little “ah-ha’s” God has in store for me.

Check them out– you’ll be glad you did.
