My Favorite Devotional

I have never found a devotional that speaks to my heart more than Streams in the Desert. Sean picked up an old 1945 copy at a used book store when I was pregnant with Lydia.  I was afraid it would bore me or I would lack the spiritual mind to understand it. I have grown in my reading skills and find everyday encourages me. What I think is so awesome is it's a signed copy from the missionary herself!

Mrs. Lettie.B. Cowman (1870-1960) and her husband, Charles E. Cowman (-1923), were missionaries in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which period they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. After her husband‘s death Mrs. Cowman wrote a nine books.

This was Mrs. Cowman’s first book. It was published in 1925. Two years after her husband‘s death and thirteen years after Dr. Miller‘s death. What an amazing woman! The collection of poems, her thoughts and excerpts from many different authors will bless you!

Check out todays reading or buy the book for your collection at home. It is entirely worth it!
