Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"We were so glad to see Hope and Darrell's new book. We find the art and content to be so inviting to the reader. Again in true fashion, Harvest House Publishers continues to release first class material. We would gladly recommend any reader to sit down in a cozy place and find peace and rest."
--Bob and Emilie Barnes, bestselling authors

"Reading one of Hope's inspiring messages or a quote that she has sprinkled throughout A Still And Quiet Place is a pleasing way to take five or pass time while waiting. This little book fits in my workbag and serves to make lovely segues between the various facets of my day. Rather than automatically defaulting to checking messages on my phone, I open A Still and Quiet Place where Hope and others remind me of the sacredness, in what I might have otherwise deemed as ordinary."
--Lisa B. Baker

"Each two-page spread inspires readers to pause for a time of soul-nourishing refreshment and reflection that will leave them relaxed and rested. This exceptional book would make a wonderful gift for family or friends, even to tuck away for a Christmas gift, as well as for personal use."
--Gail Welborn, examiner.com

    "A Still Quiet Place" is an awesome gift book written by Hope Lyda. Hope captures that still quiet place in your soul as you read the soothing and calming words written on the pages of this beautiful and special work of art. And to go along with the gentle and calm words, Darrell Bush adds his smooth touch of relaxation and calmness in his gorgeous paintings.

    This book is truly a special gift that will give peace and joy to anyone you choose to give it to. I really love my copy. I find myself going through it sometimes reading the special essays and verses. At other times, I flip through the pages drinking in the awesomeness and beauty of God’s creation Darrell has so vividly captured through his paintings. The first look at the book’s cover will pull you in: the cabin with its lights shinning through the windows, the antique pickup sitting there and the peaceful lake in the background. Wow, makes me want to be at this place at my first glance.

    You can tell I love this special book, and can never get tired of reading the words and looking at the paintings. I highly recommend “A Still Quiet Place” to anyone, because I don’t think there is a person out there who will not be blessed in some way by something in this book. And if you need a gift for someone but have no idea what to buy, this would be a great choice. And it will work for any type of gift. In other words, you just can’t go wrong giving a gift of calming peace and quiet.

    I would like to share with you a book called A Still and Quiet Place by Hope Lyda.
    My thoughts:

    This was a gift book that I thought had such inviting illustrations. They are paintings of various outdoor scenes, including a beautiful beach and lighthouse at the beginning of the book. The author invites the reader to relax and come along on a quiet escape through this book. I liked the encouraging quotes that were included through the pages. In our world we are too busy too much of the time. Sometimes we need the reminder to be still and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us. This book would make a nice gift. Thank you to Harvest House Publishers for providing this book for my review.

Very colorful, beautiful paintings that I would love to have hanging in any room in my home.

Starting with an invitation to join the author, you will take a trip through Philippians 4:8 meditating and traveling through pictures to places that are true and noble, right and pure, lovely and admirable, and finally excellent and praiseworthy.
