Seasons of the Heart: A Year of Devotions from One Generation of Women to Another
“This collection lights up a magnificent heritage of Word–filled women from centuries past. Find here not a guide to theology or Bible study, but a series of truly inspiring glimpses into wholehearted devotion to Jesus Christ and His Word. The excerpts make us want to read more and know better these spiritual mothers—and to keep passing on the faith in Christ that shaped their lives and words.”See All

“Perhaps some of the most challenging yet tender words ever penned come to us from the writings of godly women of the past. Selected by Donna Kelderman as daily readings, here is a collection of such writings. And who can tell what blessings may be in store for us with a year spent in the company of women like Ruth Bryan, Mary Winslow, Susannah Spurgeon, Frances Ridley Havergal, and many others?”See All

“Hundreds of years separate us from the women whose writings are featured in this devotional. Yet those who share their love for Christ will find them to be kindred spirits. Drawing from the Scriptures to face their own struggles and trials, they speak with timeless truth to believers of every generation. A treasure trove!”See All

A queen, an educator, a missionary, a pastor’s wife. Some of them single, some married, some widowed, some mothers. All of them, like women today, knew the joys and heartaches of life. But the bond that drew this generation of women together—and connects them to women today—was their heart for God and devotion to Christ. In this year’s worth of devotions, you will find spiritual insights from godly women of the past who, like us, struggled with sin, loneliness, and disappointments yet rejoiced in God’s love, mercy, grace, and providential blessings. Join them in the various seasons of their hearts and find timeless encouragement and wisdom from one generation of women to another.
