The author has written this book especially for Christian women. Grace – given to us freely by God the Father. Grace is received not earned. The author wants you to believe it – receive it – live it. She wants you to enter the “land of grace”. Have you ever walked in the “Garden of Grace”? Throughout the book. the author tells you about special people who not only received God’s amazing grace, but walked daily in the Garden of Grace finding the secure love of Jesus.
In the Garden of Grace is where we grow spiritually. The author wants each woman to be a “SWOG” – A Super Woman of God. In your quiet time is where you walk in the Garden of Grace. In order to do this you must prepare yourself. How, you may ask, can I do this? The answer – PRAYER plan. What is the PRAYER plan?
- Prepare your heart
- Read and study God’s word
- Adore God in prayer
- Yield yourself to God
- Enjoy His presence
- Rest in His love
The more you learn from God, the more you will grow. The author tells us to put on our royal garments as we want in the Garden of Faith. These are your royal garments.
- put on a heart of COMPASSION
- put on a heart of KINDNESS
- put on a heart of HUMILITY
- put on a heart of GENTLENESS
- put on a heart of PATIENCE
- put on a heart of ENDURANCE
- put on a heart of FORGIVENESS
When you are clothed in these beautiful garments – one you will wear above all others is the love of Jesus.
The book is written for women, but I recommend it for all readers – believers and nonbelievers. For those who have already accepted Christ, you will grow more spiritually in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. For unbelievers, who have doubts, take time to have a “quiet time” with Jesus, practicing the PRAYER plan and you too will become a believer as you walk in the Garden of Grace.
Highly recommended. Ms. Martin not only “talks the talk but walks the walk”. Ms. Martin, along with her other accomplishments, is a well know author and founder of Quiet Time Ministries. Recommend christian women read other books she has written to help you grow spiritually in the Lord.
