A Great Book for a Gift or Yourself

As we walk through the experiences of life, unless we are aware of it, it's easy to miss the "God moments." Dr. Margaret Wills calls these moments to our attention with pointed first person stories. As she writes in the Author's Note in the beginning, "As we follow Jesus and walk toward God and His truth, there are times when we feel especially close to God, where for a moment the spiritual and the natural worlds intersect and narrow into a thin place, a place of sudden, momentary awareness of the deep presence of God."

I love the honest tone of this book. For example, she writes, "The older I get, the less I pretend to know about the workings of God. But I also become more and more sure of two things: god loves me, and god cares more about my faith, my spiritual maturity, and my intimacy with Him than He cares about my comfort." (Page 64)

The author mixes these well-told personal stories with her poetry. If you are looking for a devotional book or a gift book, I encourage you to get this one. It's the type of book that I like to read early in the morning or right before I fall asleep. I recommend it.
