Book: Glimpses of God: A Summer Devotional for Women
Author: Shirley Crowder & Harriet Michael
Release Date: April 29, 2020
Creator God made the world in which we live. He placed the moon and stars in the sky, the rivers and ocean on the earth. He also created seasons throughout the year. Each season is defined by specific features/attributes that are common although the degree varies depending on where a person lives. In winter we think of cold weather; in spring, blooming flowers; in summer, warm weather; and in the fall, beautifully colored leaves.
As Christ-followers we also experience spiritual seasons. These seasons do not come in order like seasons in nature, which come regularly without fail. Each spiritual season we experience is defined by certain features also. In spiritual winter we think of the coldness of our relationship with God; in spring, new
This devotional is focused on summer—both calendar and spiritual. Our spiritual summer is a time of growth, hard work, and relaxation as we nurture and care for the new things that were planted in our spiritual spring and allow them to ripen or mature.

During His Creation, God determined that there would be four seasons to enjoy. The Summer season can be a time of hard work but it can also be time for fun and relaxation and the authors of Glimpses of God focus on both of these. As I read the sixty-five devotions divided into thirteen chapters, I discovered that many of my Summer memories are similar to those of Shirley Crowder and Harriet E. Michael. Blackberry Winter, Dog Days of Summer, and Vacation Bible School are all familiar topics and there are also devotions for the special days of summer, including Memorial Day, the Fourth of July,.and returning to school the day after Labor Day. Each devotion is written in a conversational style that adds to its relatability and I especially like that they each have Bible Scripture, a suggested Prayer, and a Thought for the Day.
Glimpses of God: A Summer Devotional for Women is an inspiring book, filled with life lessons and spiritual nuggets, and I recommend it for both personal devotions and group discussion.
I received a copy of this book from Celebrate Lit but I wasn't obligated to write a favorable review. All opinions are strictly mine.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
