Devotional Saturday - Fresh Grounded Faith by Jennifer Rothschild

My friend Shelia, of One Person’s Journey Through A World of Books (http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/), always starts her day with her beloved Coffee Cup and a meander through the book blog world. So in honor of our friendship, I dedicate today’s blog to her!

Thank you Shelia for all your help and encouragement – you’re a special gal! I raise my coffee cup to you!

Fresh Grounded Faith
By Jennifer Rothschild
Harvest House Publishers; $13.99

Popular inspirational author and speaker Jennifer Rothschild shares a cup of inspiration to help women make it through the daily grind with her new devotional book, “Fresh Grounded Faith.” Jennifer's successful Fresh Grounded Faith conferences are reaching thousands of women and this devotional is the perfect way to take her special blend of inspirational teaching home for every day.

Each short reading, or as Jennifer calls it – a freshly grounded thought, begins with a personal story or illustration from Jennifer which are always insightful and always scripturally based. This is followed by “What’s Percolating In Me,” a space to jot down how the reading affected or inspired the reader; "Spill the Beans," an interactive section encouraging the reader to talk with God about what is going on in their own life and providing a place for prayer needs and confession, and finally, “Thanks A Latte,” a space for listing praises and thanksgiving.

Jennifer draws from her family life, life experiences, and experiences from those she has met along her spiritual journey for her heartfelt entries, each one bringing a spark of encouragement in a warm and loving manner. It’s just the right jolt of faith that would start the day off right!

The compact size and contemporary layout of Fresh Grounded Faith make it a great gift for any woman. And any reader will find it a quick and perfect way to renew and refresh a relationship with God over their daily coffee.

About the Author:

Jennifer Rothschild, speaker, author, and recording artist, captivates audiences with her storytelling and signature wit as she travels across the country challenging her listeners to walk by faith, not by sight.

At the young age of fifteen, Jennifer was diagnosed with a rare, degenerative eye disease that would eventually steal her sight. It was more than a turning point for the Miami, Fl, native. Her dreams of becoming a commercial artist and cartoonist faded. Words and music have replaced her canvas and palette for more than 25 years.

Known for her substance, and a down-to-earth style, Jennifer weaves together colorful illustrations, universal principles, and music to help audiences find contentment, walk with endurance, and celebrate the ordinary. Through her signature wit and poignant story-telling, audiences are prompted to look beyond their circumstances to find unique “gifts,” in unusual packaging.

Rothschild is cofounder of WomensMinistry.NET and lives in Springfield, Missouri, with her husband, Philip, and their sons, Clayton and Connor.

And for your listening pleasure...my husband, Don
