Joyful, Patient, Faithful - A Devotional Book Review

 By: Shari A. Miller

Do you ever find yourself too busy with daily life that you forget to spend time in God's Word? I hate to admit it, but sometimes I find myself in this situation. At one time in her life, author, Jenifer Metzger, felt the same way too. She became a mother of four children at a very early age, and as you can imagine her plate was full from morning till night. She had a wonderful life, but she new something was missing. That something, was getting back into God's Word. Jenifer has written a ninety day devotional titled, Joyful, Patient, Faithful. She states that through this book it's her desire to, 

"... help you navigate the everyday busyness of life and motherhood, and find your way back, to the Word too."

I have been honored to receive this wonderful devotional that does just that!

Throughout this ninety day devotional, you will daily dig into God's Word, read a devotional, pray, and end with a thought provoking question or task. There is also an area to journal your thoughts. 

Some of the topics of the devotional are ...

  • Reminding us that we are chosen by God to be mothers.
  • Reminding us that we are beautiful. 
  • Encouraging us to take care of ourselves first, so we will then have the strength to take care of our children.
  • Teaching us to trust the Lord during hard times.
  • Reminding us to teach the Bible to our children.
  • When we feel weak we need to lean on Jesus.
  • Reminding us to choose our words carefully and to speak life into others.
All of these devotions are jam packed with knowledge to guide us and direct us down a path of living closer with the King. Once the ninety days are up, these words of wisdom will have set the foundation for one to continually meet with the Father on a daily basis. It's like a breath of fresh air being breathed into our relationship with God. I am so thankful for this devotional as it has set me on a new path of excitement in my relationship with the Lord.

I can not wait to share this powerful devotional with my family and friends. No matter what stage of life you're in, whether a mom of littles, or you're currently the mother of adult children, this devotional will speak to all of you. I know your quiet time with Jesus will grow as you read each morsel of truth.
