Dear God, It's Me and It's Urgent review & GIVEAWAY!!

This giveaway is now CLOSED! Congratulations to MaMaD224 for winning this book.

ABOUT THE BOOK (from the Discovery House Publisher's website)

Addressing the different seasons and concerns of a woman's life, this beautiful, elegantly designed book takes you before God's throne of grace with honest and heartfelt prayers.

You may be dealing with the clutter and demands of your career. Or perhaps you're experiencing the strange mix of anticipation and anxiety a bride feels on the night before her wedding, or counting the blessings and the frustrations of motherhood, or remembering the echo of children's voices in your now empty nest.

Whatever your circumstances, God is with you, filling the corners of your life, inviting you to come as you are and draw strength and reassurance from His presence.

Woven throughout with Scripture verses and quotes from writers of the past and present, Dear God, It's Me and It's Urgent will help you find the words for things you sometimes find it hard to express, and gain new perspective as you draw close to your heavenly Father in prayer.

In this book you will find six sections that cover every aspect of a woman’s life:
  • A Woman Within
  • A Woman and Marriage
  • A Woman and Her Children
  • A Woman at Work
  • A Woman Who Cares
  • A Woman Growing Older
MY REVIEW

This really is a very lovely book. It is beautiful to look at and to read. Each chapter contains scripture, inspirational quotes and a prayer. I was impressed with the sheer scope of the book- it covers everything from getting married and having your first baby and your child's first day of school to after chemotherapy and bereavement. The book is incredibly easy to read and would make a perfect addition to any woman's devotional times. Dear God, It's Me and It's Urgent would also make a wonderful gift (mother's day is coming up!).

IF NOTHING ELSE THE TITLE CERTAINLY GRABS YOUR ATTENTION.
I TRY TO GET PAST ALL THE HARD TIMES DURING THE DAY. WITH A DISABILTY SOMETIMES I ALLOW MYSELF TO GET INTO THE WHY ME BUT GOD HAS A PLAN. I AM SURE HE'S LAUGHING AND WILL CATCH ON ONE DAY.
