Book Description

Spending time with Jesus will make all the difference in your busy day.

We balance so many things day after day-families, jobs, church, sports. Sometimes it feels like there is no time left for the most important thing: spending time with Jesus. But Sheila Walsh will help us do just that through these concise but substantial daily readings.

Each entry includes Scripture, a brief devotional thought, and a helpful takeaway. Even after just a few minutes of reading, you will have spent time with God's truth in a meaningful way, and be inspired to think on that truth and live in response to it the rest of the day.

Sheila is a master of short but profound thoughts such as "Peace is not the absence of trouble but the presence of Christ," which have been retweeted time and time again. Readers will be thrilled to find these kinds of encouraging words-along with Sheila's characteristic approach of combining honesty, vulnerability, and humor with Scripture-in Five Minutes with Jesus. They'll be reminded of how powerful it is to be in the presence of Jesus, and how much He wants us to stay close to Him every minute of the day.

My Review

Sheila Walsh is a busy woman...wife, mother, author, speaker, and singer. She recognizes that other women are busy too. Some days you just don't have time for intensive bible study but you need to spend some time with the Lord. 5 Minutes with Jesus beautifully fulfills this purpose.

Sheila is a great speaker and author because people can relate to her. She is not afraid to bare her soul. She is very honest. And she is a woman of God who witnesses to thousands of people every year. Her insights are presented to readers in her many books...5 Minutes with Jesus is the latest offering.

5 Minutes with Jesus consists of 50 devotionals. Each devotion consists of a story, then a summary sentence that wraps up the story, and finally four or five bible verses that relate to the story. And as the title of the book suggests, each devotion takes about 5 minutes.

This is a great gift for a friend who needs encouragement. Actually we could all use some encouragement. 5 Minutes with Jesus is an uplifting, honest and inspiring devotional.
