Product Overview:

 

A dear friend of mine gave me a very beautiful copy of The Quiet Place by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. I just love this little book. It is lovely to look at. It has a soft vinyl feel cover embossed with a design and title. It is a dark shade of blue, close to navy. It feels good in your hands; but it is the gems of wisdom contained inside that I love most.

 

The Quiet Place is a book of daily devotional readings by Nancy Leigh DeMoss. Each Day of the year has its own little devotion of the day. Every devotion has a title, a scripture, the devotion itself and a life application questions paragraph at the end.

 

Nancy Leigh DeMoss is such an insightful writer and her dedication to the ways of the Lord shows through. She brings the reader into her stories and shows how we can glorify God in our lives, or fall short of His glory by our actions or inaction.  She ends each devotion with some questions to bring home the point of the lesson, and help us apply it to our own life.

 

I try to read a new devotion each day; but if I miss a day or two, it is easy to catch up; because each devotion only take a couple minutes to read. That makes it easy to squeeze a little “quiet time” into a very busy day.  You, the reader, can choose the time that works best for you. If you work a day job and find little time in the morning for your Bible reading, perhaps reading one of these devotional will help start your day out right. Since I am retired, I prefer to read my Bible in the morning and my devotional at night. If you are a busy parent, you can sit down with a short devotional while your child naps or plays with their toys.  The good news is:  anyone can find time to read at least one devotion, one small chunk of “quiet time”.

    Your love of the book really shows through in your article. I especially enjoyed your thoughts about how working people or stay at home moms could find a way to fit the reading into their daily schedules. As an avid reader, I understand how a few minutes of pleasant reading each day will make you feel like the day has been a great day.

    I would be curious to know if you think the reading of this book by a person who has not been an active bible reader or church member might cause the person to become an active bible reader or church member. I guess what I am asking is whether you think this book might change a person’s attitude about God and religion.

    Thanks again for a well written and informative article.

    • Yes.  I do love this book.  The short devotions make it easy to fit into anyone’s schedule.  While there is nothing that can replace Bible reading and Bible study, this makes a good substitute for when time is short. 

      I would like to think that it might change a person’s attitude about God and religion.  However, the problem could be that if they have not been interested enough to read their Bible; they may also not be interested enough to read this book.  That’s not going to stop me from praying that it will bring people to Christ.  God can do what man thinks is impossible.  🙂

      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting.  Please come again.  I love company, and my door is always open.

  2. Hi Jeannie!

    This book will be helpful to strengthen our faith to God. And the simplicity of the book might encourage the reader to open it daily.

    This would be a great for daily reflection of our life because in every devotion ends with questions.

    Thank you for sharing this.

    God bless you

    • What a lovely comment.  I should have had your words when I wrote the review. 🙂

      The nice thing about these devotionals is they can be fit into anyone’s schedule.  And as you mentioned the questions at the end involve the reader and evoke reflection on one’s own Christian walk.

      Please come again soon.  I love company!
