A 12-week journey with “the girls”

REVIEW: Trusting God By Sharon Jaynes, Gwen Smith, Mary Southerland

Do you want to grow more in your relationship with God?  In your trust in God?
Then dig into Scripture and a devotional with “the girls!”

This book is targeted to women who are looking to draw closer in their relationship with God.  This would be a perfect book for a group of girlfriends, a women’s small group at church, or anyone looking to grow deeper in their trust with God.  While you can do the book on your own, it would be much more fun to do it with girlfriends as well as help you be accountable to daily devotional reading.

This daily devotional is creatively divided up into 12 weeks, with each week containing five devotions and a sixth day for reflecting on the week’s readings and space for journaling.

The devotions are simple (most 3 to 4 pages), yet they are very real and intentional with soul searching thoughts.  One of my favorite devotions in the book is by author Sharon Jaynes who tells the story of when her golden retriever puppy had puppies, relating the story to the intimate love and care God has for all of his creation.

Written by women, for women, these devotions are relatable; and reading these devotions, you feel like the authors are your girlfriends next door.
