10-Minute Time Outs for Busy Women

by Grace Fox

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


In 10-Minute Time Outs for Busy Women, Grace Fox takes a coffee and prayer break with each reader who picks up her book. This volume includes dozens of devotionals, each designed quickly to focus a busy woman's mind on the Lord and take it off the many things she must do once her devotional time is over. Fox believes that, even during busy times, a woman should remember God and invite Him to be a part of her life.

10-Minute Time Outs for Busy Women shows that it only takes a small chunk of time to bolster your spiritual life. If you have a few spare minutes and a desire for fellowship with the Lord, this book will guide you through several Bible verses, anecdotes, and meditations to make each moment count. The stories Fox shares as part of each chapter are especially amusing, and clearly illustrate the points she is trying to make. Grace Fox is a self-proclaimed busy woman, and has already published a similar volume: 10-Minute Time Outs for Moms.

"In the midst of busyness, make time for what matters most," Fox explains. 10-Minute Time Outs for Busy Women helps readers do just that by easing the transition from busyness to prayerfulness, without taking the whole day to do it. Not only does Fox touch on a Bible verse, share a small prayer for recitation, tell a story, and provide a few questions for her readers to meditate on, she also guides readers through a prayer on the same topic for someone else.

If you are searching for a book of devotions that will help you make your time with the Lord count, despite your busy schedule, 10-Minute Time Outs for Busy Women, is for you. -- Meg Tepfer, Christian Book
