A Still and Quiet Place: A Book Review

About The Book:

Inspirational author Hope Lyda invites readers to take a leisurely stroll through painter Darrell Bush’s beautiful, wooded landscapes. As she describes walking the path along a peaceful river, feeling the first light of an autumn dawn, and experiencing the perfect stillness of a heart at rest, readers are encouraged to step away from their cares and enjoy God’s splendor and the beauty of nature. Lovely quotes add to the book’s quiet ambiance and bid the reader to breathe deep, relax, and settle into a moment of sweet peace.
This beautiful gift book leads the reader on a refreshing journey through a still and quiet place, making it a splendid gift to give on any occasion.
About The Author:
Hope Lyda has worked in publishing for more than 15 years and is the author of numerous books, including the popular One-Minute Prayers™ series (over 825,000 copies sold), Prayers for My Dear Friend, One Minute with God for Women, and Prayers of Comfort for Those Who Hurt.
Darrell Bush paints a variety of subjects ranging from wildlife to landscapes, seascapes, and nostalgia. One element echoing through all of his art is the luminescent presence of light used to convey a mood and a story. Bush has been named among America's 12 most popular artists by four different national art publications. His work has appeared in numerous fine art shows and on many licensed products.
My Review:
One of my favorite books of the Bible is Philippians, and I absolutely love verse 8:
"Whatever is true,
Whatever is noble,
Whatever is right,
Whatever is pure,
Whatever is lovely,
Whatever is admirable,
-if anything is excellent
or praiseworthy - 
thing about such things"
Recently I had the opportunity to review A Still and Quiet Place by Hope Lyda and it used the above verse as a premise for the the book. It is a beautifully illustrated book, reminescent of the work of Thomas Kincaide. Each page has inspirational quotes or scripture verses to encourage you and inspire you to be still and know that He is God! 
A stunning book that is perfect for devotional times for yourself or a delightful gift idea for anyone in your life.
