I had the opportunity to review a new 28-day devotional that takes approximately ten-minutes a day called Putting on the Spirit: Ten-Minute Devotions for Busy Moms by Katie Horner. If you are looking for a “no thinking-no feeling-no work” kind of study this is NOT for you. If you are looking for a study that is going to get you in to the Word of God and have you think and feel and work (just all in a short period of time each day) then THIS *IS* for you.
The entire study is based off Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance against such there is no law.” but it doesn’t stop there. Almost every day has you opening your Bible to WRITE DOWN Scripture. Why? Because it seems we retain and think about it more when we read it AND write it down.
Simple, to the point, get it done, enjoy and learn and move on…PERFECT for us busy moms! Being in His Word DAILY is SO IMPORTANT for keeping our minds and hearts in proper line and perspective. It is SO EASY to lose focus and forget the importance of what we are doing each day – raising our kids, training them up in Him and sharing our knowledge of the Lord with others – if we aren’t in His Word DAILY.
Like Katie says in her eBook…it doesn’t matter what time you get in His word…only that you do it. It *HAS* to be a priority!
Overall I really enjoyed the simplicity of this study. I enjoyed the real life writing she shares about us “Super Moms” (or so we try to be). One of my favorite lines is from the very beginning of the book: “It’s time we Super Moms lay down our capes of untouchable-ness, and put on the Spirit. It’s time for us to really love and let ourselves be loved.”
You can get it for $0.99 this week – except tomorrow (Tuesday, December 10, 2014) when you can get it FREE at Amazon (link at the beginning of this post). Whether you pay for it or get it free, in my opinion, it will be worth it! You will grow from it and enjoy it. (Regular price will be $4.99.)
I am also excited to share that it is also available in Spanish!
Have a wonderfully blessed day!
