The Secret Garden Devotional: A Chapter-by-Chapter Companion to the Beloved Classic by Rachel Dodge

The Secret Garden Devotional: A Chapter-by-Chapter Companion to the Beloved Classic

Devotional Inspiration from Mary Lennox's Beautifully Mysterious Secret Garden
The Secret Garden Devotional offers lovely inspiration that explores the themes of faith, family, contentment, wisdom, and joy in the classic Frances Hodgson Burnett novel, cherished by generations of readers.

Each reading corresponds with a chapter from the book and invites you to embrace God’s guiding hand in your life as you are becoming His new creation. With themes of growth, spiritual nourishment, God's love and care, and His transforming power, this beautiful chapter-by-chapter devotional includes original artwork throughout. Each reading includes examples from the novel, scripture, life application, and prayers perfect for groups, book clubs, or personal reflection


“It was the sweetest, most mysterious-looking place anyone could imagine.”

Is there anyone who hasn't heard of Frances Hodgson Burnett's The Secret Garden? If you're a fan, you'll understand why I was so excited to learn that a new devotional was being published as a companion to this classic. Author Rachel Dodge shares thirty devotions that relate to this story that's captivated readers for over 100 years, and she shows us again why The Secret Garden is so special. She invites readers to relive the magic and feel the enchantment that Mary Lennox experienced when she entered the hidden garden and then, Dodge reminds us that we can also experience joy, peace, and enchantment. We just need to trust and believe to gain entrance to a special place that is tended by the Master Gardener himself!

The Secret Garden Devotional
is a beautiful hardback book with a ribbon bookmark and gorgeous illustrations, but the true beauty comes from the inspiration and encouragement that are offered within its pages. Each devotion has a short reference to one of the chapters of Burnett's original story, along with carefully selected Bible scripture, a personal application, and a prayer prompt. How can we not be refreshed and revived when using this devotional? I'm always eager to enhance my devotion time and I've definitely found a worthy addition to my daily worship. It would also be a wonderful choice for a women's study group!

I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. There was no obligation for a positive review. These are my own thoughts.
