Devotions to Help With the Daily Grind

Rebekah Trittipoe is one who knows what "going the distance" means. This committed Christian runs--and survives--ultra marathons, which find her on jaunts of up to 100-miles at a time. Amidst sometimes unthinkable conditions Rebekah--determined to meet her goal--grinds on.

As with her extreme running, Rebekah's dedication to God's Word is steadfast and focused. Just as she encourages fellow runners to keep their eyes open to the beauty around them during a trek through challenging terrain, Rebekah inspires other believers to look for God's revelation not so much in theological treatises but in the mundane things of life--watching a simple sunrise, pulling weeds, taking in orphaned kittens, or hauling rocks for a backyard path.

Her daily devotions (366 of them, to encompass leap year) include an inspirational story, a Scripture, and a daily challenge. She offers these with the mere purpose of helping each of us make our way through the daily grind--whether that be navigating the nettle-fraught mountainside or sitting at a desk slogging our way through a work day.

Way Back in the Country Garden, in the days of long ago, families decided
what was for supper by dispatching a youngster out to the family patch of dirt to see what was fresh and ready for pickin’.

The Three Red-Haired Miller Girls, who grew up with modest means, nevertheless believed they were rich because the garden’s yield was so plentiful and because their creative Mama wielded her kitchen magic to make a meal fit for royalty.

Introduced in Kay Moore’s previous book,
Way Back in the Country, the lively Miller Girls again draw readers into their growing-up world in farm-rich Delta County, TX, where a stringent economic era–not unlike today’s tight times–saw people turn to the earth to put food on the table for their loved ones.

With home gardening surging in popularity as frugal people become more resourceful, this six-generation recipe collection and accompanying lore will inspire others to cook this garden-fresh way and ideally preserve their own family food stories as well. Now, join the Miller Girls, Mama and Papa, Grandma Harris, and all the generations hence in rollicking yarns that have love, family, and faith as common denominators and show how food evocatively bonds us to our life experiences.
