This book is unique. I love unique. Cheri Gamble has a fun parable style. She tells a little story from her life and ties it to the spiritual. These aren't a cheesy, “Praise God for helping me tie my shoes today” type of stories. Not that some of us don't need help with some of the simplest things sometimes, like when I was expecting and couldn't even see my feet much less reach them to tie shoes. Thank the Lord for slip-ons!
If you've read very many of my reviews, you know I like thought provoking books. I like things to stimulate my mind and help me consider different perspectives.
"Isn't it incredible how God can take something so ordinary, such as duct tape, and turn it into something extraordinary for the Kingdom? In His hands, even the most ordinary household object can become a tool that can be used to advace the kingdom if there is someone willing to do the work."
I recommend this book to everyone! There isn't a person in this world who couldn't relate to some of the adventures of Banana Bread & Mismatched Socks!
Banana Bread & Mismatched Socks: 100 Devotional Thoughts From My Every Day Life is a collection of stories that will help bring us closer to the Author each and every day. Combining the stories of her life with ultimate truths supported by Scripture, Cheri Gamble has provided 100 daily devotions that will challenge, encourage and inspire us to focus less on the circumstances of our lives and more on the overall theme -- a theme that showcases a loving Father who wants us to trust Him to turn our own stories into His own Masterpiece! Wherever you are in your journey in life, this book will help you draw closer to the Father as you spend uninterrupted time in His presence.
