I really liked Sharon Jaynes' new book, A Sudden Glory. The point of this book is to get your life to the point where you feel God's presence in everything you do, and on a daily basis. She talks a lot about intimacy with God and all the things that can get in the way of that relationship.

Jaynes talks a lot about seeing God in the little moments. That's something I began adding into my daily devotion - what was my "sudden glory" of the day? A few days it was something simple like hearing my daughter tell me what shapes she saw in the clouds. Some days it was something bigger, like working with volunteers at church for a food ministry. One thing she said in the book is that sometimes, as Christians, we neglect our relationship with Jesus. "Relationship becomes religion, worship becomes work, and love becomes law."

Jaynes also talks a lot about how our Christian walk can become broken due to shattered dreams or abuse, or financial ruin, or death, or a multitude of things. It sounds as though she really understands these feelings that Christians (especially women) can feel over a lifetime.

There is a study guide included in this book which I think would be great to use in a small group or even individually. I do recommend this book for others to read.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
