Everyday Wisdom: Spiritual Wisdom for Women

Based on scripture quotes from Proverbs, “Everyday Wisdom” is packed full of insightful and inspirational thoughts on every page for every day. The devotions cover areas such as joy, generosity, character, teachability, purpose, and more.
For me, the devotion titled “Patience” had impact: Patience persistence pierces through indifference; gentle speech breaks down rigid defenses. Proverbs 25:15 MSG.
The inspirational thought for this passage is:
Microwave dinners, e-mails and Twitter, posts on your cell-phone, 24/7 news channels, instant messaging. We’re not used to waiting for much. But when it comes to relationships we really need patience. You can’t change someone else. You can only adjust your own attitude and behavior. But positive change takes time, whether it is you or the other person who decides to change. Be encouraged, though. Patience and persistence will pay off in the long term.
I love this little book! Reading a page in the morning is a perfect way to start the day, especially if followed by contemplation and setting up how the day will be lived. “Everyday Wisdom” is perfect for a gift, perfect to keep in your purse.
