I was pleasantly surprised reading Time to Shine.
The last few articles I read in Christian Woman magazine were not to their usually high standard.
However, as the devotional book is a ‘best of’ compilation, the articles chosen from the magazine were all very good. But it wasn’t the articles that made Time to Shine a great devotional book for women of all ages and walks of life – it was the way in which the articles were used.
Each article is followed by Time to Shine tips. These were an excellent way of helping put what you had gained by reading the article into practice.
I also loved the resources section in each chapter. The authors direct you to movies, books and music that related to the article. I really appreciated their choice of movies.
The book can be read going from chapter to chapter or one can pick it up and read a chapter that appeals.
Each chapter is stand alone covering areas including dying, spiritual disciplines, beauty, busyness and your walk with God.
The title Time to Shine is apt as the book is aimed at encouraging all women to let their light shine.
I recommend it to all woman looking for a fresh, light, practical and encouraging devotional book.
