Uplifting Read

Although the stories are from generations of old, they are still relatable to today's situations and relationships. I loved that scripture was tied into each life lesson and that there was a closing prayer.

I liked the format of this devotional: a sweet story about a quilt (and people who make them), then an application to how we can apply a principle taught in the story to our daily walk. Lastly, she included a prayer to help us remember to apply the principle.

It took me a while to track it down but it was worth it.

Yes - there is a God/religious/spiritual theme to the book, but overall it didn't have that overly heavy "bible-up-side-the-head" feeling to me. The balance was well done and made for an enjoyable rhythm.

The illustrations depicting a qui

I didn't realize this was written to be a devotional. I was expecting real stories about people and quilts, not vignettes written to illustrate a scripture or value. Still, I finished it, skimming over the "devotional" part. The scriptures weren't KJV, so I skimmed them, too, (not as pretty or poetic as the KJV). ...more

Inspiring

Learn a little about quilt patterns, while being inspired by the stories Ms. Tatem associates with them. My favorite was the last one.
