Seasons of the Heart compiled by Donna Kelderman

Seasons of the Heart: A Year of Devotions from One Generation of Women to Another by Donna Kelderman

About the book:  A queen, an educator, a missionary, a pastor’s wife. Some of them single, some married, some widowed, some mothers. All of them, like women today, knew the joys and heartaches of life. But the bond that drew this generation of women together—and connects them to women today—was their heart for God and devotion to Christ. In this year’s worth of devotions, you will find spiritual insights from godly women of the past who, like us, struggled with sin, loneliness, and disappointments yet rejoiced in God’s love, mercy, grace, and providential blessings. Join them in the various seasons of their hearts and find timeless encouragement and wisdom from one generation of women to another.

Authors include Ruth Bryan, Anne Dutton, Isabella Graham, Elizabeth Julia Hasell, Frances Ridley Havergal, Sarah Hawkes, Susan Huntington, Harriet Newell, Katherine Parr, Susannah Spurgeon, Anne Steele, and Mary Winslow.
  • 366 days of Scripture verses and brief devotional meditations that provide timeless truths, encouragement, and wisdom for your daily walk with God
  • Updated language makes meditations accessible to modern readers
  • Brief, inspiring biographies of each of the contributing authors
  • Excellent gift for Christmas, graduation, Mother’s Day, and birthdays for women of all ages
My review: I enjoyed these devotions written by women from different centuries than us,but who still have so much wisdom we need to hear.  Each devotion is one page with a Scripture verse.  Some of the language is still a little old-fashioned, but understandable.  I liked that their biographies were included.  I was familiar with some of the women, but others I had never heard of.  This is a beautiful hardcover that would make a great gift for a woman you know and for yourself!

I received this book free from Cross Focused Reviews in exchange for an honest review.
