ABOUT THE BOOK
This four-book series includes one book for each season. Why write a book series by seasons? Each season has something of significance for growth and development in the world and in us. Learning to embrace self through each season gives us opportunity for growth. Like all the books in this series, FALL DEVOTIONS was inspired by my need for daily reminders, and to discover something new that would help me cope with chronic pain.
The fall season is a time of harvest and preparation, and that is the metaphor for this book. “Fall Devotions” is not a book of daily religious devotions; instead, it is a book for taking one day at a time, learning to live in the moment. Each chapter has a picture with a quote or affirmation to introduce the information for the day. Whether it is information or a thought provoking exercise, we hope you are challenged to explore your talents and learn to equalize challenges with triumphs.
As leaves turn brilliant colors and fall from the trees to provide a protective blanket for the harshness of winter, so does this book help our readers view life through a door open to a landscape of honor and hope. We have been told that it is rare to find a book that offers encouragement, practical advice, comfort, and aesthetic appeal all at the same time. We have been blessed by the comments made by others who have worked through the process of exploring new health information, management strategies, and things such as We said, if this book helps one person, it was all worth it.
