This is an excellent book from one of the great Christian women of our day. I allowed myself to read this book over several months to let the practical advice become habit. I used it as a devotional/study for my own quiet time. I would love to study it with others to dig even deeper into my walk with the Lord. One practical suggestion she gave was how to read through the Bible in a year. I've tried this several times several different ways and I have to say the way she laid it out has been most ...more
Loved this book, have given a few copies away. I finished it before losing my husband. What I learned from it, helped me make it through that time.
If you would like to develop and / or better your daily quiet time with God, this book helps you understand what it takes to do so. It also helps you think about why it is we are called to have a consistent daily quiet time with God.
I read this my jr. year of college, and it was the perfect supplement to what I had been learning about discipline and reading in the Word. It was difficult for me to discipline myself to read, because of habit or just not praying for the desire to be disciplined. But, it was very clear about the scripture that supports scriptural reading and taking time away from our ever-busy schedules to be equipped by the one thing that gives us life, breath, and the energy to live lives pleasing to the Fath ...more
I would of liked it more but there are times where Nancy Leigh Demoss sort of comes across as a little rigid as how devotional time should be used. There is just way too much emphasis on when, where and how. I am more type of the person that believes that God finds people rather than God just finding them. That being said I feel like only certain parts of this devotional are meant for me.
A huge thank you to my friends Charlotte and Beth for the gift of this book! I love the story about Mary and Martha on pp.40-45; it is perfect, especially during Advent. It reminds me how important it is to strive to live like Mary in a "Martha" world. My to-do list tends to get the better of me, and I often lose sight of the true meaning of the season.

I have almost completed this book. I'm always impressed with how Nancy Leigh DeMoss is able to motivate me to discipline my time with the Lord and to crave more time with him. She is a means of grace! This is a great book to motivate you (biblically) to find your place of quiet rest at the foot of the cross through the word of God!
Nancy Leigh DeMoss shares her heart with her audience, sharing with them the blessings of a daily quiet time spent in worship and devotion to God each day. An excellent instructional read for a new Christian as well as an encouragement to the more seasoned Christian. This challenged me to bring back the intimacy to my devotions.
A beautiful book of 'back to basics'! Not just a 'how to' manual but also reminders of 'why' and 'what'.
Drenched in scripture references, heart-warming and challenging.

I felt like this book was long and repetitive. I read it for a Bible study, and was bored after the 5th chapter. I do love Nancy Leigh DeMoss. I think she's amazing.
If you need to revitalize (or begin) your daily quiet time- this is the book to get you focused! I highly recommend it and really any other book by Nancy Leigh DeMoss.

Excellent devotional!
She was a little too pushy in all that you should sacrifice..... made me feel guilty rather than inspired.....
It was a very inspiring book. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to draw closer to the LORD.
This book is very helpful for people who do not have a background or new to the idea of devotions.
A good book on how to and why one should develop a daily devotional habit.
The beginning was good, but about halfway through I started to lose interest.
This book was very inspiring to me and made me want to spend time with G-d.
This is a wonderful book that is a great encouragement to me.
This book was so convicting and changed the way I do my quiet times.
this book is wonderfully written and encouraging to read.
