Devotions from the Garden: Finding Peace and Rest in Your Hurried Life
By Miriam Drennan / Thomas Nelson
Devotions from the Garden takes you to a place where miracles of nature abound and where your soul can be restored. These ninety devotions connect the parallels of life with the wondrous, sometimes inexplicable realms of the garden to usher you into His presence, to soothe your soul, and to rest in knowing He is with you throughout each day. Features include a hardcover binding, full-color photography, a presentation page for gift-giving and a ribbon bookmark.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through BookLook Bloggers [Harpercollins Publishers] book review bloggers program.

Devotions From The Garden provides the reader with daily devotions or anytime devotions, which discuss aspects of the garden and align with the similarities we have in our relationship with God. Each devotion starts out with a Biblical scripture, then goes on to discuss a topic relating to the garden, closely followed by a comparison of the garden’s topic to our relationship with God, and ending with a prayer.
I do not know much about the garden or gardening in general. However, I still came to find Devotions From The Garden quite interesting and helpful, even though I may have stumbled through some of the devotions discussing the garden. Each devotion is accompanied by a beautiful colored image from the garden. There are even sections where the images take up two whole pages at once. The reader’s place can always be kept by a beautiful complimenting ribbon place marker.
I would recommend Devotions From The Garden, especially to all gardeners and lovers of the garden itself. It can be purchased for oneself or given as a beautiful gift to a fellow gardener.
