Intimate Conversations

“Intimate Conversations” by Alicia Britt Chole
Chole book was selected as MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers)theme devotional for 2009.

Many good devotional to choose from if you browse Christian literature. This is one more for women. Great books you want to read over and over, and I wouldn't put this one in that category. It is great in the sense that it resonants with women in the midst of struggles of raising a young family.

Chloe, the author, is an middle-aged women who adopted young children, and is writing in the midst of daily demands. She offers young mothers a testimony of mature love of God and children. She touches on struggles women face, and gives you encouragement to deal with challenges, grief, and her words bring you close to God.

Her devotional is geared to those who journal, or those who would like to start journaling with suggestions of exercises at the end of each chapter. The book does not offer a great deal of depth, but better it gets you started in your own conversation with God. Guiding you to talk with him, and deepen a relationship in the midst of an everyday world of balancing a hectic life with young children at your feet.

Read with pleasure and a shared intimacy with the author as you see windows into her life, and open windows into your own. She addresses hidden years, and the joy in watching your own children in their everyday life and find them treasures of immeasurable value from God. He is leading, and she is listening.
