Start the Crock-Pot. Go to the bank during lunch. Take Emily to ballet at 5:00. Go to choir practice at 7:00. Run the dishwasher. Remember to breathe sometime today....
Today’s Christian women are busy. They’re wives, moms, and businesswomen, juggling family, careers, responsibilities, and harried schedules. They look aftereveryone else’s best interests but have little time for themselves.
Be Still...and Let Your Nail Polish Dry is a devotional designed for the contemporary woman who needs a moment to relax and think about her own spiritual well-being. With current, upbeat devotions from beloved authors Andrea Boeshaar, Sandra D. Bricker, Loree Lough, and Debby Mayne, women will renew their spirits and grow closer to God.

This is the perfect devotion al for me.... Carry [it] in your purse or leave it in your car to make the most of those five-minute periods of quiet time to spend with the Lord. You'll be so happy you did.
