Day 13: Devotionals I Love

Since it’s Sunday I thought I’d share a few devotionals that I’ve enjoyed over the years.

My favorite, hands down, is A Woman After God’s Own Heart by Elizabeth George.  When I read this book I feel like the author is talking directly to me…and that she cares about me.  I don’t even remember when I first picked up a copy of this book, but it’s been perfect for every season of my life so far.  I love Elizabeth George and wish I could meet her so I could let her know how much her books have encouraged me over the years.

I’ve also used Spurgeon’s  Morning and Evening intermittently over the past ten years or so, and enjoyed it every time I’ve picked it up.   I’ve rarely remembered to read both of the daily readings, but I usually keep up with the mornings pretty well.

This final book is a children’s devotional and I’ve loved it for years, ever since I taught the 4’s and 5’s Sunday School class in my early 20’s.  I’ve searched for devotionals for my kids for years and haven’t found anything else that even compares with Leading Little Ones to God by Marian Schoolland.  My main complaint about children’s devotionals is that they are too simplistic.  Young kids aren’t dumb.  This book introduces deep concepts to children in ways that they will understand and remember.  I was constantly amazed at how much the kids in my class understood when I used this devotional.

  1. Springs in the Valley by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman. She wrote many of these years ago. I think her husband was sick and she wrote these while taking care of him during her dark days.
