A Deeper Kind of Calm, by Linda Dillow

In this four- week devotional entitled A Deeper Kind of Calm: Steadfast Faith in the Midst of Adversity, the reader is invited alongside the writer on a quest to know the unfathomable peace of God regardless of whatever circumstance we find ourselves in or in spite of our emotions that reel about us and cloud our minds. It is a journey to contentment that serves as a follow-up to her previous book, Calm My Anxious Heart.

At the time I received this book to review, I was busy packing and cleaning. My husband was helping me as much as he could while continuing to job search while at the same time training the new employee who was his replacement. Our precious little ones, too young to understand what was going on but knowing that something certainly was up, turned into adorable and breathing forms of cling-wrap. We have since moved from Colorado to northern Missouri, are living in a rental and have prospects but no actual job (or income). I am tempted to excuse my fears and impatience, but this book has encouraged me to face them as sins and to look fearlessly at the face of the One who hold our future and us in His loving hand! Our Lord is sovereign and good, and as I found through reading the stories given in this book taken from the life of the author and her acquaintances, He is near! This book has encouraged me to turn from discouragement to joyful excitement and I hope that it will do that same for you.
