In the year since Barefoot Devotions came out, I have noticed people mistaking it for a book for 10-year-old-girls because of the watercolor cover design. So it was back to the drawing board to come up with a less confusing cover.
While my graphics person was working on the cover, I worked on the interior, changing the fonts, graphics, and formatting. The new version omits the blank pages for journaling because few people I talked to thought that was useful. It’s just a straight devotional (but I encourage you to journal on your own).
Does your prayer time seem one-sided? You can change your monologue into a dialogue by using these 90 devotionals as conversation starters with God. Written from God’s perspective to you, each devotional gives you a place to begin interacting with Him. The Bible says God spoke to Moses as a man speaks to a friend (Exodus 33:11). You can have that kind of relationship with God, too. Take your shoes off and dig your toes into the cool grassy meadow of an interactive prayer life.
I hope these devotional readings will help you start listening. Then you’ll hear the repeated refrain of God’s love for you, feel His encouragement, and find yourself challenged by His high view of your potential in Christ.
My cover designer doesn’t like a lot of limelight, but if you like the new cover, I encourage you to say so in the comments below.
