Felt as if you'd never reach the end of your to-do list? Struggled to catch your breath? Then I can relate.
I received Grace Fox's book Peaceful Moments to Begin Your Day: Devotions for Busy Women at a time when I felt unbearably busy. There was schoolwork to be done, friends to call and wish a "Happy Birthday" to, blog posts to write, family business to attend to, and oh, yeah, I should probably read my Bible too.
So I drank in the title of her book and eagerly began reading, hoping against all hope that the book itself would deliver on what the title had promised.
To my great delight, it delivered on all that and more!
I literally began each day by reading Peaceful Moments to Begin Your Day and it truly became one of the few restful moments of my day. I felt so refreshed and inspired after reading, it quickly became something I looked forward to every morning.
Each devotion was long enough so as to deliver something of value, but short enough that I didn't feel overwhelmed at the prospect of reading it. Every devotion included an "Upward Gaze" (a prayer to pray), an "Inward Glimpse" (questions to reflect on), an "Outward Glance" (a pre-written prayer to pray for someone else), and "One More Peek" (one final Scripture related to the topic to meditate on).
The devotions were full of personal stories and easy to read. I especially liked the "Outward Glance" sections of the book. At times, it can be difficult to know how or what to pray for our loved ones, and often the "Outward Glance" portion for the day would be exactly what I needed and couldn't seem to find the words to say.
I'd only recommend this book to two types of people, and they are these: If you are A) busy, or B) a woman.
If either of those things describe you, pick up this book, ladies! You won't regret it.

Amy Givler5 Stars Out Of 5This book is a gemFebruary 22, 2012Amy GivlerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I have also read this book in its previous form, when it was titled 10-Minute Time Outs for Busy Women, but this new binding is perfect for this book. It fits comfortably in the hand, and the cover is soft and beautifully colored. I've loved the book's content since it first came out, but now I love the book itself. I'm going to be buying several as gifts -- it's that kind of book. Grace Fox is a masterful devotional writer, with stories that interest me and Scriptures that point me to God. Each day's entry has a prayer that is both naturally written and deep. And I want to mention that it has a ribbon to keep your place -- a lovely touch for a lovely book.
The MrsAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5This book is not your typical devotional...February 18, 2012The MrsAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Being a busy woman my time is pulled in many directions throughout the day, every day. But it is important to me to make time to read things(including the Bible) that enhance my relationship with the Lord. This book is awesome because it gives you scripture reference along with a short story that applies to my everyday life and then there is an "Upward Gaze" an "Inward Glimpse" an "Outward Glance" and "One More Peak", all of which are sooo thought provoking, scripturally based and referenced. I found that I could totally relate to these stories in my own life. The "Inward Glimpse" poses a couple of questions to really cause you to reflect, I journal my answers to these questions. All in all this devotional takes me 15 minutes from start to finish and has been a real blessing in starting my day off on the right foot. I HIGHLY recommend this book to every woman who is searching for a boost in their daily walk with God.
