Kim Newlen’s devotional for women is aptly titled, The One Year Sweet and Simple Moments with God Devotional. It’s just that—sweet and simple. For women wanting a quick morning pick-me-up and encouraging word with your morning cup of coffee or tea, this devotional is a great start. The book is also laid out beautifully—colorfully eye-catching with fun and flowery headers on each page.
Her stories are engaging and real. The devotionals themselves are quite brief and are centered on one short verse written out at the top of each page, taking only a few minutes to read through each day. At the end of each entry, there is a ‘key’ with a challenge on how to apply that day’s lesson to life.
Ultimately, how much you love this devotional will depend on what you are looking for. If you want something more thought-provoking, deep, or challenging for your spiritual walk, you’ll probably need to find another devotional to use. My personal preference tends to be for the deeper studies and discussions of the Bible. I’d also love to see a devotional that matches up with a one-year Bible reading plan instead of hopping through the verses of Scripture.
But if simple and sweet is what you want (and sometimes in this busy and crazy life that’s what we need!), then this could be a perfect fit.
