At the Feet of Jesus by Joanna Weaver

A new year calls for a new devotional!  Joanna Weaver is the author of three books referred to as the Bethany trilogy: Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World, Having a Mary Spirit, and Lazarus Awakening.  This devotional is comprised mostly of excerpts from these books.  Each daily reading is one page long and contains an excerpt from one of the trilogy books, a bible verse to look up, and a question for reflection. 

I have been reading this book daily for the past 3 weeks and am enjoying it so far.  The readings are relevant to women today and focus on slowing down and building intimacy with God.  Since I have only read one of the books from the Bethany trilogy, these daily readings are a great way to get the best content from all 3 books!  However, for someone who has read or owns the trilogy, this book will offer you very little new information.  It would mainly provide you a structured way to review the material you have already read (which isn't a bad thing from time to time!)  There is also a one-year bible reading plan in the back of the book for those who are interested. 

If you can spare 5 minutes at the start of your day, this devotional offers a way to focus and reflect on what's truly important.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book from Waterbrook Press in exchange for an honest review.
