Finding God in the Everyday is now available in a Kindle edition. So if you read on a Kindle or other device (or maybe got one for Christmas) and plan to start a new devotional at the beginning of the year, I hope you’ll check it out.
Goodreads allows authors to write reviews of their own books. This is what I wrote about my new book:
Finding God in the Everyday by Lillie Ammann
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As the author, you would expect me to give the book 5 stars. The 5 stars don’t mean that the writing is eloquent–I am not an eloquent writer. I gave the book 5 stars because I accomplished what I was told to do. This book started out to be very different, until I heard a voice in my head telling me it was supposed to be a devotional book. Although I’ve always wanted to respond enthusiastically to any call from God, I hesitated and questioned. Here is part of the “conversation” in my head:
‘Who am I to write a devotional? There are lots of devotional books already in the market, written by people much more skilled than I am.’
Don’t worry about other writers and other books. Just focus on the one you are going to write.
‘Lord, my writing is simple and plain. Devotionals should be beautiful and eloquent, like the 1928 Prayer Book.’
Your book will be FINDING GOD IN THE EVERYDAY. The language and the subjects should be everyday.
I have tried to the best of my ability to write the book God told me to write. He will use it to bless those He wants to bless with it.
