The One Year Devotions for Women: Becoming a Woman at Peace, by Ann Spangler, is an inspiring devotional. It begins with a definition: “Shalom. One of the most important Hebrew words in the Bible, shalom coveys the idea of peace, tranquility, satisfaction, success, prosperity, healing, completeness, safety, well-being, and good relationships among people and nations. Rich and multifaceted, shalom sums up all the blessings God gives to those he loves.” Spangler also shares with the readers that she was not sure she wanted to even attempt to write an entire year’s devotions on the subject of peace, but ended up having much more to share on the subject than she originally thought.
Each day’s devotion begins with a Bible verse. Then each includes a short devotion and ends with a prayer or prayer starter. Busy women, trying to run households, work, volunteer, and much more, will appreciate these short but powerful devotions. Peace is a topic that certainly applies to all and is impossible to obtain on our own. Spangler reminds us that God wishes to bring all of us immeasurable peace, if we will just take the time to spend a few moments with Him.
I recommend this book for all busy women who could use a little more peace in their lives.
