You may have seen the other posts I did about this devotional – an introduction post and a giveaway post (which is now over) and my enthusiasm for this keeps growing! I just sent it as a gift to a friend because I knew that she would appreciate it and since it’s so Biblically sound that she would make good use of it. We are now talking of working through it together with a daily email or text and and a weekly Facetime or Skype chat. I’m excited. The book description from Amazon says this:
“For busy moms of all ages and in all stages of life. We all know what it is like to be busy. And we all have times when we wish we weren’t so busy. The question is, how do you feed your soul in the busy seasons? This one month study of the fruit of the Spirit will challenge you to examine yourself in light of the Scriptures and give you something to apply to your life each day. And the best part is that each day’s study can be done in just TEN MINUTES or less! Foreword by Heidi St. John. Comes with a free downloadable workbook on the author’s website.”
These devotionals are truly 10 minutes or less, depending on how much time you devote to doing them. Perfect for this home school mom – and other moms who just find themselves too busy to devote to 1/2 hour or hour studies but still want to read the Word of God. It’s said that even those who aren’t ‘religious’ can use this study, but never fear, it’s a Scripturally sound devotional. To quote my previous post about this devotional:
“I’ve been happy to be a part of another launch team, this one for Katie Hornor’s new book, Putting on the Spirit: 10 Minute Devotionals for Busy Moms. I hadn’t heard of her either before joining in this launch team and I’m so glad that I’ve had the pleasure of reading this book, a devotional made just for mom’s like you and I – busy, super women, moms who just may also throw in the role of teacher as well.
Usually when we think of time studying the Bible we tend to get overwhelmed because, well, we’re busy moms – who has time to sit around and just read? Of course reading the Bible is different from reading that romance book but it’s still taking time – but let’s face it God needs us in His Word and our children need to see us in His Word as well so what if I told you in 10 minutes a day you can have a fulfilling Bible study time, just for you,and feel refreshed and as if you spent more than 10 minutes with the Lord of your life? I’m telling you that – Katie Hornor has done a great job in giving women a simple but in depth Bible study that will help us in putting on the Spirit using lots of Scripture.”
You’ll go in depth on the fruits of the spirits through this devotional as well as growing closer to the Lord – how great is that!? All in 10 minutes or less a day. I also recommend checking out Katie Hornor’s website, Paradise Praises where she blogs about marriage, mothering, home school, ministry and more – and it’s just down right encouraging – and once you purchase your copy of Putting On the Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions for Busy Moms don’t forget to grab your free workbook from her blog! It’s totally worth grabbing.
