As a gardener, I was immediately attracted to “The Secret Garden Devotional” by Rachel Dodge. What a joy to open the pages and discover beautiful art inside. The drawings are worthy of a collector’s bookshelf. The words on each daily page are wonderfully written. I especially like the connection between the original Secret Garden and this modern devotional. Very impressive and likable!
There are 30 devotional stories in this book. These stories connect with chapters in The Secret Garden book. I especially like how the author lists the book chapters alongside her devotions. This book is filled with Bible verses, personal application, and prayer. The artwork is fabulous!
This is a perfect gift for a gardener (like me). My coffee table at home is stacked with garden books. My daily planner is garden-themed and green. I’ll read this book daily while sipping some herbal tea. This book is so amazing, I’ll probably give a few copies to my family and friends, along with a live plant.
I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from NetGalley and purchased a printed copy for my library.
Devotional Inspiration from Mary Lennox’s Beautifully Mysterious Secret Garden
The Secret Garden Devotional offers lovely inspiration that explores the themes of faith, family, contentment, wisdom, and joy in the classic Frances Hodgson Burnett novel, cherished by generations of readers.
Each reading corresponds with a chapter from the book and invites you to embrace God’s guiding hand in your life as you are becoming His new creation. With themes of growth, spiritual nourishment, God’s love, and care, and His transforming power, this beautiful chapter-by-chapter devotional includes original artwork throughout. Each reading includes examples from the novel, scripture, life application, and prayers perfect for groups, book clubs, or personal reflection.
