Devotions from the Barn Door
Devotional – Christian Life
Devotions from the Barn Door is the sixth book in author Tammy Chandlers’ popular Devotions from Everyday Things series.Each devotional is designed to help readers find ethereal truths connected to our mundane world. This volume focuses on the everyday objects, tasks, and experiences of life on the farm, but the spiritual observations are applicable to people from all walks of life.
The devotions in this book evoke quiet times with God based on lessons that can be gleaned from the farm. Each one includes a daily Scripture passage that connects our everyday lives to God’s Word; an Illustration from the barnyard that helps us apply the principles of Scripture throughout the day; a Thought-provoker that offers an opportunity to adjust our thoughts and actions to the principles learned from the devotions; and a Prayer Starter to help facilitate a regular conversation with God.

Deployed with my Mother
Memoir – Christian Life
In 1988 an Army recruiter encouraged David Weill to sign up for his local Reserve Unit. One weekend a month, two weeks in the summer, extra money now, and benefits toward college. What’s not to like?
Weill went home and talked it over with his mother. It was a short conversation.
“Hey, Mom. Do you think I should join the Army?”
But David had a money mindset and a patriotic streak. He figured he could serve his country and get paid to do it. Not only did he sign up, he talked his mother, a nurse, into signing up too.
Then Desert Storm hit the fan, and stuff began to get real.
How wonderful it is to read devotionals that point out our God working through ‘normal, everyday’ occurences; it encourages me to look for His hand in the mundane parts of my day.
