Pam Farrel and Dawn Wilson have created a fresh, fun devotional book for women, "LOL with God: devotional messages of hope & humor for women."Each devotional has a text message that will remind us of God's love and care or be an encouragement to us. Each devotional is short with additional scripture to go along with the message that is shared. A feature I really like is the extra space at the end of each devotional for your reflection and own text.I recommend this for women who feel that they are short on time but would love devotionals that deliver a lot in a small amount.*Tyndale House Publishers provided me with a free copy of this book.

I had the chance to review this devotional book for women, LOL with God: Devotional Messages of Hope & Humor for Women. It's a light-hearted book for one to enjoy if you need a good laugh and just to feel revived and refreshed. I did feel that even though I text here and there, I am not into all of the lingo that's currently out there. To me, it is a little irritating. LOL There are a collection of personal stories in this book and text message Bible verses throughout to encourage women in their walk with the Lord. You can 'send up a msg to the Lord, there are 'text helps', an LOL area and a place to write your text msg to God about your life, what you read, or a request that's on your heart. This book is not my personal fav for devotions for women. They aren't deep and serious really and I do like most of my devotions being that way for the most part.Tyndale House Publishers has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book.

Would B so gr8 2 take a vacay w/ a gf asap...right? LOL (Laugh Out Loud)For most women, it would be so great to take a vacation with a girlfriend as soon a possible and the sentence reflects the common everyday use of abbreviated "texter" lingo. Women are constantly texting or tweeting or "facebooking" as part of their personal and professional daily routines. Balancing careers, marriages, children, home, activities, and (now) social media have created a very plugged in and busy schedule for women. Trying to find time to sit still and quietly read is like trying to find a needle in a haystack--mission impossible. With this perspective in mind, confessed awoved "texters", Pam Farrel and Dawn Wilson have written LOL with God: Devotional Messages of Hope & Humor for Women.Like reading texts between friends, these devotionals are short messages filled with real-life stories to encourage, inspire, and uplift. Each devotional contains a Text Message (devotional theme), a Send Up Message (prayer), Text Helps (scripture verses), Your Turn (a place to write or text back your thoughts), and LOL (humorous stories). As a woman, I daily wear many hats throughout the day. Mother to toddler identical twin boys and a preteen son, military wife, columnist, writer, blogger, co-host, consultant, public speaker, chef, maid, chauffeur, etc...my life is multi-tasking. The desire to find some quiet time during the day is something that I strive for. Even unplugged time has to be scheduled in a busy day. With its text like devotions and messages, LOL with God, fits well into the business of daily life because its geared for busy women.LOL with God: Devotional Messages of Hope & Humor for Women is a Focus on the Family book and is published by Tyndale House Publishers. This book is truly a great resource for all busy women who want to feel renewed and encouraged, especially through text. :)
