My Review

I generally struggle with devotional books. They always seem to be lacking probably because I’m expecting more out of them. The nice thing about this devotional is the author sets the expectation in the title: 3 Minute Prayers for Women.
In the 3 minutes (or less) it takes to read these devotions you get a scripture and a prayer that is relatable and easy to personalize. I think my favorite part of the devotion is the “Think About It” section. The author post a simple question that relates back to the scripture and prayer. The questions tend to hit home to important aspects of one’s faith.
Definitely would buy this for a friend.

Review: 30 Days in the Land of the Psalms A Holy Land Devotional by Charles H. Dyer

About this Book

Read Psalms in full color.

The psalms are among the church’s finest treasures, a collection of writings where many find solace, comfort, and hope. Yet some psalms remain “locked” in a sense, containing references to places and objects modern readers have never seen and can’t picture.

Until now. From author and renowned Israel expert Dr. Charles H. Dyer comes a devotional that brings selected psalms to life. Each entry features a beautiful, full-color photo of a Holy Land site, a suggested reading from Scripture, and a reflection that incorporates Dr. Dyer’s knowledge of the land. Plus, the hardcover binding and ribbon marker make it a wonderful gift or bedside read.

Some selections include:

  • God Is My Masada (Psalm 18)
  • The City of Our God (Psalm 46)
  • A Song from the Wilderness (Psalm 90)
  • A Song for the Mount of Olives (Psalm 118)
  • Solitary Prayers in Lonely Places (Psalm 120)

30 Days in the Land of the Psalms is a one-month devotional that will take readers on an extended journey to Israel . . . and into the book of Psalms.


My Review

This was a beautiful devotion! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it, my only regret is I had an ebook.  This one needs to be read as a real book!

With the author’s extensive knowledge of the Holy Land and ancient Israel he was able to paint beautiful pictures of what the original Psalms meant. He also was able to translate those into contemporary application. The pictures that were included were also beautiful (as far as I could tell on an ereader!)

I give this book 4 stars!

My Review

I love to color! I use to print out kids’ coloring pages from the internet and color during meetings. So when I saw this book I was extremely excited!

In this book you not only get 31 beautiful pictures to color, but you also get 31 inspirational devotions. These devotions begin on December 1 and go through December 31st. The devotions are thoughtful and point the reader to the true meaning of Advent and Christmas.

The author also provides discussion starters for family devotions as well as written prayers. Both of these items are short but meaningful. There are also coloring pages with simpler designs for the younger artist.

This would make a great Advent gift those who love to color.
