More Faith in My Day: 10-Minute Meditations for Women from Proverbs

by Emilie Barnes

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Gleaning from the wise words of the ancient writers of Proverbs, Emilie Barnes’ book of devotionals, More Faith in My Day, offers applications that are relevant and reassuring. Focusing on areas such as goodness, guidance and love, her thoughts address real issues of a woman’s everyday existence.

“Proverbs is about life, and living it in a sensible way. The fear of the Lord is the first step toward wisdom—it is the foundation for all of the world’s knowledge.” In 10-minute meditations that remind the reader to seek inner beauty and godly integrity, the book points to the power of Proverbs for living a positive life.

Ben Franklin, in his Poor Richard’s Almanac, said, “The doors of wisdom are never shut.” With that in mind, women should continually seek wisdom, and More Faith in My Day can help open the door to living wisely in today’s world.

Barnes has authored 60 books, including The Twelve Teas of Friendship and A Journey Through Cancer. Along with her husband, Bob, she is the founder of “More Hours in My Day” time-management seminars.

More Faith in My Day is appropriate for every woman looking for wise words that will help her in her work and in her world. – Nancy Kay Brown, Christian Book
