Prominent African American Voices Featured in New Devotional Book for Women, Rhythms of Rest, from Our Daily Bread Publishing

Our Daily Bread Publishing has announced the upcoming book, Rhythms of Rest: 40 Devotions for Women on the Move by Suzan Johnson Cook—Available September 7, 2021 in paperback and eBook formats wherever books are sold. This new devotional, part of Our Daily Bread’s VOICES Collection, includes many African American voices of various ages providing different perspectives.

Rest and retreat are essential parts of the spiritual life, but many Christian women find both elusive in the middle of their busy lives as they serve their families, churches, businesses, and communities. Rhythms of Rest provides a respite for women to simply be still and spend time with the Lord. These 40 meaningful devotions from leaders in Black and multicultural communities and churches invite women to pause and reflect on Scripture as they ponder topics like soul-care, sisterhood, seasons of life, and Spirit-led living. Women will find daily sustenance and strength from the personal stories, reflections, questions, quotes, and Scripture passages shared by their sisters in Christ.

Suzan Johnson Cook and fellow contributing authors are leaders and influencers within Black and multicultural communities and churches, and their devotions speak strength to a woman's soul. 

Rhythms of Rest includes a reference section complete with poems, praise prompts, Scripture index, retreat formula, and more.
