Book Review: Where God Finds You GIVEAWAY!!!!!





I don’t know about you, but I tend to have trouble with devotionals. I’ve purchased some wonderful devotionals that I start off reading each night and slowly become bored and finally give up on them. I like to be engaged and sometimes, after a long day at work or dealing with cranky kids, I don’t have the mental capacity to truly meditate on the devotions as they were intended. This leads to feelings of guilt and I become so overwhelmed that the devotional sits on my side table, never to be opened again.

Where God Finds You by Anita Higman is a true solution to the problem of boring devotionals! Open up this devotional and you will find Bible stories for adults. Each character of the Bible receives a name and background story even when the Bible does not supply it. Higman combines background information about Biblical characters, Bible texts, and a little imagination, and creates a devotional that pulls the ancient text into the modern world and is sure to please. 

The reason I have fallen so hard for this devotional is because of the creativity of writing Bible stories for the adult reader. I am a very creative person and I find that most devotionals are one-dimensional and often call for the reader to have quite an extensive background in Bible reading where this devotional is appropriate for the new Christian to the life-long Jesus-follower. There are questions at the end of each devotion to take the reader further and this book is perfect for reading during quiet snatches of time for the busy mom, student, or anyone who is interested in growing in his or her understanding of the historical figures in the Bible.

 This book (and the Giveaway copy!) were provided to me free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
