“A Day at the Beach: Devotions to Help You Relax, Reflect, and Renew” by Jedd and Todd Hafer

Meeting God at the Beach!

Everything about this book will make you smile.  It is a very eye pleasing little volume with an orange leather-like cover, which has a pineapple embossed on it—there is even a built in orange bookmark.  The size is perfect to tuck in to a beach bag, pocket or purse, and the texture of the cover is just right to keep it from slipping out of your hands, just in case you are reading it under a bright, hot sun.

Two brothers, Jedd and Todd Hafer, have put their heads together to write some very creative water themed devotions.  From Bad Birds a devotion celebrating the value of pigeons to For the Love of a Penny where you’ll discover things you might miss out on when not looking up–you will find yourself chuckling, sniffling or convicted—or maybe all three.  The devotions are printed in an ocean blue color complete with tropical themed borders splashed along the top of every page.  These devotions are light so none of them take very long to read.  Because of that, the reader can take even a small amount of time to meditate on God’s word.  Or, if more time is available, treat yourself to more than one.

This devotional promises to “help you relax, reflect, and renew.”  It does all that plus transports you waterside even if you aren’t able to leave a landlocked home.  I hold a great affection for the ocean and beach, along with anything themed in that direction.  If you too feel the charm of the seaside, pick up this little devotional and hear God’s voice in the sea breeze.  I liked everything about it except the font size; it is right on the borderline of being too small.  One size up would make a world of difference.  Nevertheless, this is a 5-star book that would be enjoyed by everyone, even more so by beach lovers!
