It's Published! And I'm Excited!

I'm so excited...let me tell you why! And let me share both a video and a sneak peek.

On February 21, 2023, my book Wisdom for Life was finally published and available! To celebrate, I am sharing the first devotion in the book with you. 

I’ve shared the poem before, but I also wanted to share the text. If you’d rather listen to me reading the devotion, scroll down to the video at the bottom.

From Wisdom for Life, pages 3–4.

Isn’t it wonderful that the Creator of the universe cares so deeply about our lives that He gave us a book to help us through our time on earth and prepare us for our life in eternity? 

When we realize our need for God’s Word, it’s life changing. We begin to see the power and understanding Scripture gives us, the wisdom and truth it provides, and the nourishment it offers our hearts, souls, and minds. 

We can say with the psalmist: “I rejoice in the way revealed by your decrees as much as in all riches. I will meditate on your precepts and think about your ways. I will delight in your statutes; I will not forget your word” (Ps. 119:14–16). 

God reveals Himself in His written Word. May it be our most valuable resource as we seek to know Him intimately. 

Let me share a poem I wrote that communicates my prayer for you, for myself, and for all Christ followers.

A Woman of the Word 
By Gail Burton Purath 
The Bible wore her imprint 
It’s cover soft from use 
The pages rubbed and wrinkled 
The binding coming loose 
And even if this Christian 
And her Bible were apart 
She still would have it with her 
Hidden in her heart 
Oh, make me such a woman, Lord 
Who hungers to be fed 
Who cherishes a line from You 
More than her daily bread 
And when my days are over 
May it be my epitaph 
“She longed to spend more time with Him
 And now is doing that.”

My prayer is that my book Wisdom for Life will increase readers' love and respect for God and give them a deepening desire to spend time in His Word.

I'm so excited...let me tell you why! And let me share both a video and a sneak peek.
