His Grace is Sufficient...Decaf is Not / 365 Moments of Peace for a Woman's Heart

Title: HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT…DECAF IS NOT
Author: Various
Publisher: Summerside Press

ISBN:   978-1609362195
Genre: Nonfiction / Devotional

There is absolutely no substitute for the high-octane surge of God'’s full-on grace. It's irreplaceable! Can it really be that, as we navigate the high wire act of our busy lives, God's grace forms a quiet safety net beneath us? When we don't have the ability or even the drive to accomplish God's will for our lives, His grace is there. Or when we've chosen the wrong path, His grace is a heartbeat away to dust us off and show us the way home. 

In 100 upbeat and thought provoking devotions, the authors help us find truth in the middle of our crazy lives. Instead of putting our hope in good works, careers, the perfect family, or a double shot of espresso, they remind us to rely on God's supply of grace that never runs dry.


HIS GRACE IS SUFFICIENT…DECAF IS NOT is a great devotional for women on the go. I absolutely love the colorful cover, with a lovely cup of coffee covered in whipped cream and sprinkles. So appealing and cute. And cute is the flavor of the devotions as well. They start with a verse, then are followed by an upbeat devotion, and are followed by a prayer. Short and easy to read, these would be idea in your desk drawer, in your vehicle, beside your bed or where ever you read devotions.  A great stocking stuffer for busy women this holiday season (or any time.)  Available in hardcover. 208 pages.

365 Moments of Peace for a Woman's Heart offers inspiring psalms and meditations to calm and comfort you throughout your day. In these pages you'll . . .

· rest in the loving presence of your God
· find a haven from the pressures of daily life
· learn that God's perfect peace can be yours in the midst of any circumstance

Be Still and Know

365 MOMENTS OF PACE FOR A WOMAN’S HEART is an easy read, but there's nothing unique about this devotional. The devotions are all fairly generic, and, none of the devotions I read had a profound impact. The readings are all collected from previously published devotionals. There isn't any flow from one day to the next, and it feels like it's written more from a textbook than from an inspiring hunger for God.

A good devotional for women on the go. The cover is a nice-understated shade of pink with a sandy colored binding. Each devotional starts with a verse, a paragraph or two devotion, and a prayer. Short and easy to read, these would be ideal in your desk drawer, in your vehicle, beside your bed or where ever you read devotions.  A great stocking stuffer for busy women this holiday season (or any time.) Available in ebook and hardcover. 400 pages.
