Devotions from the Garden: Finding Peace and Rest from Your Hurried Life
In my latest book review for Harper Collins, I chose the book “Devotions from the Garden.” I was curious about what it was like because it’s a topic near and dear to my heart since I write on a similar topic.
“Holy Spirit, help me accurately see how healthy my roots are or aren’t. Also, teach me to care for them properly. Help me nourish them with Your Word, that I may grow strong and tall, able to serve with energy and bring glory to You.” pg 79
Reflecting on the book:
In Devotions from the Garden, Miriam Drennan has written 90 devotions to coincide with topics relating to gardening. From titles such as composting, butterfly gardens, living among the weeds, and the forgotten crop, each devotion is about four paragraphs long, and contains an opening verse, and an ending prayer. Located throughout the book are beautiful full color photographs. As a photographer and writer myself, I first believed that the author was the photographer for these devotions, but after looking at the front of the book I discovered all photos came from shutterstock.com. Still, the photos were breathtaking and went along great with the theme of the book.
I highly enjoyed this devotional. Each one is very well written, and connects great with our daily lives. The devotions are perfect in length and would incorporate into any part of ones schedule, be it morning or evening. I recommend this to everyone, and it would work especially well as a gift book.
