One year of devotionals from one generation to another

Seasons of the Heart“Seasons of the Heart” contains the journal entries, letters and poetry of twelve women of the faith from the 1700s and 1800s.  Women such as Susannah Spurgeon, the wife of C.H. Spurgeon; Katherine Parr, who was named after Henry VIII’s first wife; Anne Steele, who served with her father who was a minister and wrote 144 hymns, 34 psalms in verse and 50 poems; Mary Winslow, who lost an infant daughter and her husband within days of each other and though she became despondent later accepted her suffering as from God and wrote some amazing letters of faith and the power of the Holy Spirit and prayer.

Inspiring selections from some remarkable women are included in this year of devotions.  At the back of the book, you will find a biographical sketch of each of them.  After reading the sketches, you will be amazed and inspired at what they lived through and struggled with while still holding on to their faith and trust in God.

I am grateful for Donna Kelderman for compiling their works in “Seasons of the Heart”.  Seeing the faith of other women who lived generations before is encouraging and inspiring.  Knowing that they struggled and made it through reinforces my faith.
