I am so excited for my friend, Stacy! Today is release day for her new book, Devotions from the Front Porch.
I fell in love with the cover before I even had it in my hands – and when I showed the beautiful hard cover book to my husband he had the same thought I did – THAT is the kind of front porch we need!
I consider myself an honorary southerner. I’ve lived in the south more than half my life now.
I make sweet tea that would give a northerner a toothache after one drink.
I wear flip flops more months than I don’t.
I don’t make blackeyed peas and cornbread, but my husband does!
Also. I married a southerner. And we’re raising three southern girls.
So I completely relate to Stacy’s southern front porch devotions.
She mixes in a lot of southern front porch living with even more living in The Word.
You’ll read a devotion and remember a moment you shared with your own family.
You’ll read verses that know exactly where you are right at that moment and you’ll snuggle back under your blanket and talk with Jesus like you talk with your best girl friend.
When you finish the book because maybe you read more than one or five, whatever, devotions in one sitting because obviously Stacy has been sitting on your porch and not her own and somehow knew exactly how to join God’s word with the reality of southern living and you can’t even put the book down…then you’ll set it on your coffee table because it is so beautiful and a great conversation starter.
Then one day…ok. The same day…You’ll pick the book back up and start it all over again and you’ll read it with fresh eyes and something you can’t believe you missed the first time will jump out at you and you’ll start reading it through again.
This is a book you’re going to want to grab a few of and share with your sister-in-law and best girlfriends and pastor’s wife.
And as luck would have it, you can head over to my Facebook page and enter to win a copy for you and a friend!
If you can’t wait, click over to your favorite online book retailer and order one or ten to be delivered right to your own front porch.
