My Thoughts:

I've been writing book reviews 'professionally' for over a decade, and I'm still amazed at how God sends the right book for the right season of my life, and I just think I received a random offer to read a random book.  He's done it again with "Whispers of Rest" by Bonnie Gray...and it's just what The Doctor ordered.

We do live in a noisy, busy, hectic world.  Information flies at us 24/7/365...in fact, we now have fake news stories to fill in the cracks when nothing worth reporting is going on!  Car stereos, Bluetooth, iTunes, Pandora, cable television, live streaming, video on demand...we are entertaining ourselves to death.

So when it actually is quiet, it kind of hurts our ears, doesn't it?  Now, imagine 40 days of gentle reminders of the love of God, with one word to meditate on all day long.  Imagine guided prayer prompts that are brief but resound deep within your soul.

Imagine a book with a cover, a layout, and a message that is so necessary to the dryness of our souls that we weep upon opening to the first page (okay, maybe you won't do that...but I did, and I have no shame!).

Bonnie Gray has crafted a book I'm calling "For Such A Time", because we are desperate for quiet and rest, and to be reminded of the love God has for those He calls His own.  I'm ever grateful to my friends at FaithWords Publishing for my complimentary copy, with no services or obligations in return.

"Whispers of Rest" releases May 23rd (I know, don't you just hate it when I do that to you), so be sure to pre-order your copy now!  Until then...

Mark Your Place,
