Be Still & Let Your Nail Polish Dry
The subtitle for this book is, A Devo for Women on the Go. That's a great description of it. Andrea Boeshaar, Sandra D. Bricker, Loree Lough, and Debby Mayne have collaborated on this great little book.If you're looking for something deep and theological, this isn't the book for you. There isn't any digging through Bible verses required, though you can do that if you wish. But it's geared for women who can only catch a few minutes in the day for some quiet time. The book is filled with vignettes from the ladies, and something for the reader to meditate on during the day.If you're looking for something quick and light, you'll enjoy this little "devo".**I was provided a free copy of the book for review purposes, though I only post reviews for books I truly like.

I love devotionals. There are certain things I look for when choosing a devotionals. I like the entries to be fairly short, but meaningful. I like devotionals that are written for women by women. I like when the book is hardcover with pretty paper, and I like it to be compact enough to put in my purse. Be Still and Let Your Nail Polish Dry is just such a devotional. This is a great everyday book for busy women who need some inspiration in their day. There are 104 devotions written by four talented Christian women who all understand the need for a few quiet moments with God. Each devotion has a Bible verse and a prayer that applies to the text of the devotion. These devotions are personal, inspiration, and written in a light and friendly way. Be Still and Let Your Nail Polish Dry tops my list of favorite devotionals. It has everything I enjoy in a devotional book, including the pretty ribbon page marker. I highly recommend this book for the busy woman in all of us. It will give you a bright spot in your day.

This book is a fabulous gift for someone you love. It's one of those books that when you pick it up and start paging through, you just want to buy it for every busy woman in your life. It's heartfelt and the stories are true to life stories that we all experience. The format of a scripture verse, the story, and then a prayer after is perfect for the busy woman. I highly recommend purchasing this book. You won't be sorry!

There is a reason this Devo for Women on the Go is selling out--the authors have written devotionals that come from their hearts, and experiences.I am a mother of young children, so I don't have tons of time. This book is great because I can take a few minutes and read through one devotional, or an hour and read through more.The authors have set some of their deepest thoughts on the table for readers to see. I like that I can see how God took care of different situations in each of their lives. I feel like I can relate to a lot of what they have been through, and it made it more personal for me. Humor is interlaced throughout the entire book, which I need in my life! These ladies have been through the trenches, and I like reading about their experiences! Part of the proceeds from this book are being donated to ovarian cancer research. That means a lot to me, because I lost a stepmother and grandmother to cancer. Besides, how can you go wrong with beautifully painted pink toe nails on the cover?!
