Dwelling Places: Words to Live in Every Season' | Lucinda Secrest McDowell


Dwelling Places: Words to Live in Every Season (Abingdon, June 2016)
Do you long for serenity and refuge, peace and hope? Are you seeking a deeper spiritual life through a closer relationship with God?

If you’re tired of dwelling in busyness and noise, then perhaps one word a day can change your life. Award-winning author Lucinda Secrest McDowell knows that if you spend time each day turning to God’s Word for wisdom and guidance, your faith can flourish and grow.

Through short and inspiring readings, McDowell unpacks a single word—such as mercy, beauty, gratitude, or grace—to reveal a biblical blessing or challenge relevant to where you are. Full of stories and illustrations to empower you to live the word you have just read, each devotional ends with a benediction, written as if God were speaking directly to you.

These “dwelling places” that offer the joy of God’s promise and presence cover four seasons: fall, Advent, Lent, and summer. Whether in the midst of busy holiday schedules, holy days, ordinary moments, or changing seasons, a deeper faith can be as simple as a single word.

Need refreshment for your soul, mind and body?  Then McDowell's book Dwelling Places is just the right medicine.  This has been a beautiful read.  I can't wait each day to just set down and open the book and see what Lucinda has pinned for me.  The Lord has used some many of these words and they appear on a day when I need them.  They seem to fit right in the perfect spot.  God see to it.  I have read many devotional books, this one has been one to keep me coming back.  The daily words are so practical and down to earth.  You really couldn't ask for a better book to get alone with welllllll other than the Bible, that's a given.  The author really opens her heart on each page of the book.
