At The Feet Of Jesus: A Book Review and Blog Tour

About The Book:

You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.

Intimacy with God-to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.

For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver's beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and "Going Deeper" sidebars are also woven throughout.

Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus-where true life begins!

Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.

My Review:

A number of years ago, I had the opportunity to hear Joanna Weaver speak at my home church about her book, Having A Mary Heart in a Martha World. From that point on I was a fan, and am so excited to share with you about her most recent release, a daily devotional, At The Feet of Jesus.

The book is a dated devotional, that will have you reflecting and taking the time to really understand what Jesus wants for our lives. To take time from our chaotic lives and really sit at His feet and listen to what He wants us to hear. This is often so difficult for most people, and I know it is for me. The book is very short (one page each) devotionals with clips from each of her books, a scripture reading and a reflection question. I love that near the years end, Weaver includes a number of Bible Study tips and techniques within each devotional to help start the new year off on the right foot with digging deeper into God's Word.

As you read the book, you will learn about the following:

1. Journal The Journey

2. Tools for Transformation

3. Memorizing Scripture

4. Praying God's Word

5. Creative Quiet Times 

6. Bible Study Helps

7. Half-Day of Prayer

My favorite section already is July, where Weaver discusses creative quiet times (something I am sure most moms, and women in general, struggle with). I look forward to digging into At the Feet of Jesus more as the days go!

This would be a wonderful gift for any Joanna Weaver fan in your life, for yourself, or anyone you know looking for a new devotional.

I highly recommend this book and give it a huge thumbs up!
