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
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.

“Whatever approach you take to reading the Bible, don't let yourself become a slave to the method. Don't get so caught up in the mechanics that you miss the point.”More quotes…
