Great Devotions for Young and Old

Today is a 2-for-1 review just in time for Christmas! 

Have you been trying to find that perfect gift for the busy woman or young lady in your life?  Something they can use to breathe the Word of God into their day and grow them in faith?  I found it in these 2 great books:

The One Year Home & Garden Devotions by Sandra Byrd is a wonderful daily devotion perfect for any Home & Garden-minded woman.  I used it along side my regular Bible study for that little extra personal tid-bit in my day.  I loved pondering the scripture passages in relation to the regular hum-drum of daily life in home and family.  Each month is introduced by an inviting "recipe" for either something tasty to eat or something spiffy to do and spice up the decor and/or care in your home.  The month then proceeds with dated devotions.  This book is not year specific so it can be used again and again (if you miss a few days of the devotions) and would also make a great guest-bedroom bedside book for weary travelers to soak in some Peace!

The More for Girls Only Devotions by Carolyn Larsen has been a wonderful experience for my almost 13 year old.  She has enjoyed this devotion so much we purchased extras for her to give to friends.  (One, she delivered as a baptism gift!)  This devotion is set up in an easy-to-follow format with self quizzes to assess where a young lady is in her Journey.  It then shares a scripture lesson and encouraging quotes to get girls thinking more about God's plans for their lives and how they can think of others verses the more age-typical default setting of thinking of self.  My daughter's only disappointment is that she will soon be done with the book and there is not another one to follow!!

So, whether you are looking for Spiritual gifts for young or old, these two books are sure-winners and fairly priced for all ladies on your list!


*I received a complimentary copy of these books from Tyndale House for my review. This review is my opinion alone.
