Book Review: Jesus Calling
I’m sorry I’m a day late posting. Life changed for us last week. After sixteen years as a stay-at-home mom, I’ve gone back to work full-time. I’m excited to be teaching at the school the boys attend, but the days have been busy and the evenings too short.
Normally, I wouldn’t have any problem coming up with a long list of books to recommend, but right now I can’t even think of one! I do have a book in my bag, but it just goes back and forth and never sees daylight.
The one book I have been reading is Jesus Calling by Sarah Younger. Over the years I’ve purchased several daily devotional books only to find I go away wanting something deeper or more. I’ll be honest, I didn’t even consider buying this one for months but one day I did buy it and I’ve been blessed.
The readings are short, but thought-provoking and meaningful. I often find myself writing the verses that go along with the reading in the margins of the book, just so I’ll have them right there.
Jesus Calling has been a blessing to me in these busy days. It’s a few moments of calm during very busy days. Someday, things will calm down again and a routine will be established. For now, the daily writings in this small little book offer me sweet reminders and gentle encouragement of the love Jesus has for me.
Have a restful weekend,
