Bouquet of Wisdom: Reflections From the Garden by Deanna Nowadnick


Genre: Christian, Devotions
Source: I received a copy from the author to facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

This is one of those books you don't just read; you interact with it. Through personal stories that connect with certain types of flowers, she tells us what they symbolize to her. It goes much further than that. She connects it to scripture and the teachings of the Bible. I made so many connections to her stories.  One thing that made this book so special was the three questions she asks at the end of each chapter. The first question is usually in reference to the story she wrote, asking you about a time something similar happened in the reader's life.  The second and third questions usually connect to the message, scripture, and faith.  After reading through this book the first time, I have started reading it again using the questions to journal responses. Through journaling, I have learned so much more about my faith and my personal walk with God. This book also made me think back on times when flowers influenced areas of my life. This is a book that makes us take a look at our lives and our walk with God.  Highly recommended.
