"At the Feet of Jesus" Blog Tour

At the Feet of Jesus
Daily Devotions to Nurture a Mary Heart
by Joanna Weaver
You were made for more than serving God; you were made to know Him.
Intimacy with God--to know Him and be known by Him. It is what our hearts desperately need, but somehow life conspires to keep us busy and distracted.

For anyone who struggles when it comes to daily devotions, At the Feet of Jesus extends an irresistible invitation to set aside your duties and find the amazing peace and incredible joy that come from time alone with Him. Drawn from Joanna Weaver's beloved Bethany trilogy, each reading in this 365-day devotional includes a Bible reading passage and reflection question. All-new material and "Going Deeper" sidebars are also woven throughout.

Discover for yourself the riches that come from spending a portion of each day alone with God. At the feet of Jesus--where true life begins!

Includes a unique One-Year Bible Reading Guide.

Meet Joanna:

My Take:

At the Feet of Jesus takes excerpts from Joanna Weaver's three books (see above) and turns them into a devotional for every day of the year. Each day's devotional has a corresponding set of verses from the Bible for further study. These short devotionals are really easy to read would be a great addition to regulary daily Bible reading and study.

There is also a Read-Through-the-Bible-in-a-Year Reading Plan in the back that is very easy to follow and has a great layout. Instead of reading straight through from cover to cover, you go back and forth between Old Testament and New Testament books, reading first one OT book through then reading a NT book through. This seems like a great way to read through the Bible, and I am looking forward to starting this plan at the first of next year.

Having not read Joanna Weaver's other books, this devotional book contained all new material for me. If you have read the other books, this might be a bit repetitive, but it might also be a fresh way to re-read those books. I have to admit that a few of the readings felt a little like I was missing something, and I attribute that to the fact that I haven't read the previous books in their entirety.

At the Feet of Jesus is a good reminder that we should be nurturing a Mary heart – one that sits at the feet of Jesus – every day of the year.
