Women, are you looking for a new devotional for this next year? Men, is there a special woman in your life who needs a new devotional? Seasons of the Heart, compiled by Donna Kelderman, might be what you are looking for.
This book is filled spiritual insights from twelve women from Great Britain and America who lived from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. Some of the women were published authors, some were not, they wrote in journals and letters. These women included Ruth Bryan, Isabella Graham, Susan Huntington, and Anne Steele.
The back of this book includes biographical sketches and scripture index.
About the author-
Donna Kelderman currently lives with her family in Michigan. Her husband is dean of students and spiritual formation at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary. Kelderman works with the seminary’s Ministry Wives Institute.
I thought Seasons of the Heart, by Donna Kelderman, had a lot of good spiritual advice that is as important now as it was hundreds of years ago.
Kelderman had a great idea when she decided to compile this information from all of these wonderful women. It was helpful for me to have this advise in short pieces, because some of their dialogue was difficult for me to understand. When it is hard for me to understand something I have to spend a lot of time going through each sentence, so shorter pieces don’t take a lot of time in my hectic life and still allow me to learn a lot.
The only thing I would have done different in this book, would be to place the biographies in the front of the book. I would have liked to learn about the women before I started reading what they wrote.
I’m glad that there were 365 days of devotions. It can give me time to get to know these women better. I think that many women can learn a lot about these women and themselves from studying these devotions. I recommend this book.
