Jedd and Todd Hafer have written a wonderful devotional called A Day at the Beach with daily inspirations to help you relax, reflect and renew yourself. Each devotional carries with it a Bible verse and how we can simply change our attitudes to help reflect the peace that God can provide. So many of the best things in life are willing to wait for us. Perhaps this is God's way of telling us to embrace the anticipation rather than fight it. To surf with the tide rather than swim against it. To let the journey unfold on its own schedule so it can be savored. Good advice for the beach to road trips and for life itself. You can refresh your soul and encounter God even if there isn't an ocean in the picture.
This devotional is filled with a collection of personal accounts, intriguing beach trivia, and even a fable or two. It is geared to help your reading to be as refreshing as a day at the beach, offering soothing waters for your mind and sunshine for your soul. There are devotionals reminding us about the importance of being unplugged, which seems to be common place, that we simply forget about the things and people around us because we are caught up in social media, texting and our smart phones. People seem to use the phrase that they are simply, "too busy to find time to spend with God," but the truth is if we simply set our phones to vibrate, we can let go and find quality time in our days to get things done and enjoy those around us more and spend time with God in our devotionals or Bible reading. These are short and sweet but pack a lot of things to consider and hopefully give the reader a break for all the things that can drive us crazy.
I received A Day at the Beach by Jedd and Todd Hafer compliments of Tyndale House Publishers. Some of the topics include, Making the Ordinary Extraordinary, Nothing Ever Happens on "Someday," Ocean Baptism, A Sail With Attitude, The Throwaway Ritual, Uses for Sand, Thanks for Nothing and so many more. There are 70 devotions tucked inside a beautiful orange soft cover that is so cool to tuck away into your purse or beach bag. This would make the perfect graduation gift or even something to use to have a short Bible devotion the next time you are at the beach or lake. The topics are perfect for discussion to utilize ways to make our days a bit more stress-free and relaxing. I easily give this a 5 out of 5 stars and now have to find a way to get it back from my 18-year-old daughter who took it to a beach birthday party for her Christian friends.
Some of the topics include:
Burning the Beach Burgers
Risking Your Life for Bird Spit
When Nothing is Something
Nothing Ever Happens on "Some Day"
The Beach as Happy Place
The beach symbolizes a time of vacation, renewal, and retreat for many of us. Time to sit on the sand and soak up the sun and sounds of the ocean, while unwinding from the typical routines and demands of day-to-day life. This time alone is enough to renew one's spirit. But, when you read A Day at the Beach and think on its messages, this vacation time can become so much more enriching. And even if you can't take this book to a beach somewhere, spending time in it wherever you are is like a mini-vacation in itself.
Each devotion is about a page and a half, with related Bible verses and pretty decorated page borders. The tropical color scheme includes turquoise text and page illustrations to complement the vibrant cover. The only drawback to the compact size of this book is the tiny font size, which when combined with the color of the ink makes it a bit challenging to see, especially if you take the book out to the beach in the glare of the sun. I'd love to see a larger print version of this fun book!
The publisher provided a review copy of A Day at the Beach.
Do you yearn for a day at the beach where your mind and soul can wander away from life's troubles? Do you gaze up at the sun or the nighttime stars and wonder if God is really on your side? Do you long to hear his quiet voice in the roll of a gentle wave? In A Day at the Beach, brothers Todd and Jedd Hafer don't have the answers to all of life's troubles, but they'll help you see that the God who built the universe also wants to help you build a great life. Let these encouraging words bring a ray of warm sunshine to your doorstep as Todd and Jedd offer their joy-filled perspectives on life and faith. So take a deep breath, unplug from life's daily grind, and follow the call of your heart to Jesus, the ultimate source of life.
Sitting in the sun on sand with your toes digging down into it and then to take a a quick dip in the water. Ahhhh....the beach--heavenly! Well now you can read some devotions that are based on all things beachy. In a Day at the Beach you get to read all about God and His goodness while reminding yourself of all the beach sites and sounds. Along with all the great food and fun!
Each days devotion is based on scripture and on a short devo for the day along with some great beach commentary to get your day off to a fantastic start! Great devotional that is short and sweet with just enough to get you through an awesome beach vacation.
