Sweet and Simple Moments with God

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.

  1. This sounds like an interesting book. Thanks for your honest review!

    Also, I wanted to let you know about a friend of mine who recently self-published her first book. I am helping her put a blog tour together and am looking for blog sites to host her either with a book spotlight post, book review, and/or an author interview.

    I wondered if you might be interested???

    Here's the info on the book:

    Examine Your Faith!: Finding Truth in a World of Lies Hardcover by Pamela Christian

    Well-meaning people want to believe that all roads lead to the same God and heaven. But wanting something to be true is far different from truth lining up with reality. Unless you make an intentional effort to examine what you believe and why you believe it, it’s quite possible you are living your life on the basis of a lie, and don’t know it.

    Please e-mail me if you're interested. Thanks and have a great week!
