The One Year - Sweet and Simple Moments with God Devotional by Kim Newlen is not really my style. It is a little "fluffy" for my taste. I think it is a good devotional, not theologically wrong - but I like to dive deeper into God's word. I like to have scripture to read and deep insights to think on. But despite my personal taste, I believe this would be a great gift for someone who needs some encouragement and simple pick me up each day. In fact, I already have someone in mind to give it to.
This book is a daily devotional, with a scripture, some womanly insights on this scripture and a fun application. For example on April 10th the theme is Do You Need Rest? and the scripture is Matthew 11:28. The fun application is "Treat yourself to a few restful moments today. Curl up on the couch with a favorite warm beverage and read through the psalms."
Even despite my negative personal review. I do believe that it is a good simple devotional, that many women will truly enjoy. If you want a simple, good devotional that will challenge and encourage you - this is the book for you.
Thank you to Tyndale for letting me review this book.
