The very cover of Whispers and Wildflowers by Sarah Beth Marr brought a desire to my heart to slow down, open the cover, and read her words. Having already read her first book, Dreaming With God, I knew her words would make me pause and be still with God’s Word.
We long for our lives to be focused, have a clear mission, and a heart that pursues God every day. But as women, we are living busier than ever and often are distracted, overwhelmed with our schedules, and overtired.
“What did Jesus do when He felt all the noise closing in on Him? Instead of pushing through it and keeping on keeping on, He withdrew… He retreated.
Jesus’s heart stayed healthy because of those retreats with God.”
(from page 13)
The book is an invitation to draw close to our Lord, spending a few quiet moments each day so that our hearts can be in tune with Him.
Whispers and Wildflowers is a 30 day devotional book written to pull our hearts back into deep and continued connection with God. Each day consists of:
- a main Scripture and thought
- questions and space to journal called “Garden Moments for Your Soul”
- a written prayer
The book was hard to put down as each day was inspirational and meant to be savored. If youÂ are feel distracted, burnt out, depleted, or overwhelmed, this book is for you as you will find it to be a balm for your soul.
