The Anne of Green Gables Devotional - GIVEAWAY with Rachel Dodge

Happy Friday, Kindred Spirits! I'm thrilled to announce today that author Rachel Dodge and I are partnering for a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive Rachel's newly-released Anne of Green Gables Devotional as well as the 'Kindred Spirits' art print from my shop!

I was honored to be a part of Rachel's Book Launch Team last month and received an advanced copy of The Anne of Green Gables Devotional, which has truly been a blessing in my spiritual life. Rachel's heartfelt words of Spirit-filled wisdom correlate seamlessly with every chapter of L.M. Montgomery's classic story about belonging and finding a forever family. Reading through the book was even more than a warm, wonderful hug—it was a piercingly wisdom-filled, Scripture-based guide to everything my heart has been sighing for.

The Devotional is crafted to correspond to each chapter of Anne's journey at Green Gables, taking lessons from Anne's life and the trials and tribulations she faces and sifting through the most beautiful, deep spiritual truths for every Christ-follower to apply to their life, with Personal Applications and Daily Prayers through every chapter.

One of my favorite passages from the book comes in Day 5: Waiting. Anne awaits her fate: whether to stay at her beloved Green Gables, or to be sent back to the orphan asylum, or worse, to Mrs. Blewett. Rachel's powerful personal application arrested me with its incredible wisdomtimely, I think, for every member of God's Spiritual Army.

"If you are in a difficult time of waiting, resist the temptation to make things happen in your own strength. Don't try to manipulate people or circumstances. Instead, allow God to do His work in His way. Commit yourself to steadfast daily prayer. Wait on the Lord with firm resolve. Quiet your heart before Him. Choose not to fight, not to run, but to wait."
"It takes time for hearts to soften, for people to relent, for thoughts to shift, for circumstances to chance. Remember this: God is with you in the waiting, moving in ways you can't see, and He has plans and purposes while you wait. Take a look around—there may be someone in the waiting room with you who could use a prayer partner and a friend."

It's my honor to be partnering with Rachel for this exciting giveaway, and let another kindred spirit be touched by her wisdom through this wonderful book. One winner will be selected to win a signed copy of The Anne of Green Gables Devotional as well as my Anne-inspired 'Kindred Spirits' art print.
