Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Jump-start your day with these java-induced devotionals full of warm anecdotes, Scripture, and fun facts about the joys of coffee.

ìCoffee and contemplation seem to go well together. As the coffee trickles into the pot, I pour my prayers onto the questions that lay heavy on my heart. Soon the pot is full and so is my heart. I donít mind that the answers I seek might not come. Contemplating the questions and spending time with my Lord is enough. He holds my hand and chats with me, giving me warm comfort in my cup all the while. Yes, it takes time to brew a good cup of coffee, but it is worth the wait.î

Take a brief coffee break and delight in these sixty caffeine-inspired devotions that promise an energizing boost to begin each morning. Louise Bergmann DuMontís true-life anecdotes, paired with scriptural applications, are the perfect devotional complement to your morning cup of java.

Whether itís musing over the ìfiltersî through which we view the world, lamenting the need for moderation in our desires and in espresso, or comparing shopping for the best cup of coffee to finding the perfect church experience, youíll find laughter, comfort, and encouragement to jump-start your busy day. Louise Bergmann DuMont is the facilitator of the North Jersey Christian Writerís Group, and her work has appeared in Moody, Harvest, and several other magazines and newspapers. Her Internet column ìCoffee And . . .

Want to know about the different kinds of coffeepots? Want to know how a German family would store winter coats for the spring? Want to know about coffee grounds and their usefulness to plants? You'll find the answers in this well written devotional book by Louise Dumont.
I'm an occasional coffee drinker, but I read everyday. This book of sixty coffee devotions is well written. I loved phrases like, 'a strange scent of regret' and 'glistened like strings of dancing diamonds'.
If you need something to go with your morning coffee (besides a doughnut) try this book. You'll be encouraged and inspired! And you'll learn about those German coats...

I've never been a coffee drinker, so when I received Louise Dumont's manuscript in the mail I didn't relish the thought of reading it. Because I've known Louise for several years through an online group, and I got to meet her at a writers conference, I decided to read at least a few pages of Grace By the Cup.
From the first page to the last I kept thinking of coffee drinkers who will love this book. Thanks to Dumont's insight and style, I forgot I didn't like coffee and enjoyed the devotionals far more than I thought I would. The anecdotes in Grace by the Cup lifted my spirit, but more importantly, they drew me closer to God. The brief bits of wisdom in each chapter were perfectly matched to appropriate scripture verses. These were Dumont's stories, not mine, yet each page reminded me of God's grace in my own life.
Reading Grace by the Cup is like sitting with a treasured friend over a cup of coffee, or some other beverage, and discussing life and how much God loves us. Dumont's conversational style set the tone for a book I know will delight both Christians and non Christians.

As I work my way through this devotional book, I am impressed by how timely the vignettes are and how often I can use the wisdom so creatively penned by Mrs. DuMont. Each devotional is perfect for my busy mornings and I find myself absorbing one quite often in the evening, too. Many of the scriptures used are favorites of mine and reading a new take on them has been refreshing. I have been blessed enormously by these devotionals and thank God anew for his grace.

I thoroughly enjoyed my copy. Just like coffee - it hits the spot.........Louise brings every day happenings into focus and relates them to our spiritual lives. This is all done in a gentle, readable and enjoyable manner. Buy one and enjoy! The perfect gift when you need to have a little something to give, but not sure what. This will be a blessing. Now, to get my hands on her other devotional!! (Faith Dipped Chocolate)
