Men and women of all ages can find clues about Christian service from reading the stories and linking the scriptures with each story to it. This is a timeless book that will be a tool for speakers, writers, followers of Christ for generations.
As a professional speaker and writer on child behavior, I recognize many of my colleagues. This book is well-written and enlightening. It's definitely a delight and a keeper!
The Birth to Five Book: Confident Childrearing Right from the Start
Shirley Brosius obviously spent a great many hours in finding and researching all the women used in her book. There would be a great deal to tell about them, and only a little space. It would have been nice to read or hear the story from the women's own testimonies. Without that the stories/summaries of the women have an almost textbook, historical voice. For me, the story itself was not inspiring or necessarily applicable to my own life, but still interesting to read.
On each page (each day's reading) there is a Bible verse, Her Service, Her Message, Her Story, and My Response. Examples of Her Service are writing, mission work, ruling, preaching, promoting Sunday School, or singing. Her message are such things as: Savor the moment; Nourish your dreams; Whether they appear godly or godless, people nee the Lord; Christian novelists can penetrate hearts to revive relationships and renew faith; or The highest service we give may be the most humble.
After hearing about each woman's story, we are given a way to apply it to our lives: How might I serve God by serving others? How might I reach people in a pleasure-oriented culture? How might I plant seeds of faith? How am I showing my appreciation for what Christ has done for me? How might I bring a smile to someone's face? These are examples from the book.
It really is a beautifully done hardback book with quality pages and binding, and color photos for each month. The list of women is alphabetical through the calendar year so you can find them without an index. The font is easily read, although not large enough for the older reader. The pink ribbon bookmark is an added touch of class.
This book looks like a great gift book. It is not a study of the Bible, as it does not delve deep into helping us understand scripture. I don't see it as a tool in bringing us closer to God, as I would think of with the term "devotional." But it is interesting to read about these women and how many of them gave their life's work for the Lord.
This daily journal is perfect to place by your nightstand. Every morning or night you can read about wonderful, inspiraed women who work in their own way to better the world. Each woman's name, birthdate, service, message and story fits on one beautiful page. Also, each day you can read an inspiring scripture that coincides with each story.
A lot of these women did great things but they didn't set out to change the world. Most considered themselves ordinary women like you and me. These stories inspire and uplift the reader.
Shirley and her publishing team truly did an inspired job creating this book. I think it's perfect to give to a girlfriend or keep for yourself.
