Cathy Madavan – Digging for Diamonds: Finding Treasure in the Messiness of Life

A 40-Day Devotional

Authentic Publishing

ISBN 978 1 78893 152 

96 pages 


Sometimes it is nice to have a little book that you can dip into from time to time when you have an odd minute. This 40-day-devotional, based on the author’s larger book, also called Digging for Diamonds, provides nourishing bite-sized thoughts on biblical texts that lead into some questions for reflection, and conclude with a brief prayer.

About the size of a smart phone, it could be slipped into a pocket or purse to be retrieved to read in those moments when we might be drawn to a little more screen time. 40 days of readings might be ideal for Lent this year.

Life has been messy for many in the past couple of years; yet the author reminds us there are treasures to be found even in the midst of difficult times.

Simple, thought-provoking and practical.
