Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Jacqueline Jakes, the sister of spiritual author and speaker Bishop T. D. Jakes, presents more than 100 devotions for women who are tackling the difficulties of everyday life. Having survived a brain tumor that afflicted her when she was in her 20s, Ms. Jakes is more than qualified to counsel other women on how best to cope with adversity.
Library Journal
While still in her 20s, Jakes was diagnosed with a brain tumor, underwent eight hours of surgery, and spent months convalescing. Crediting her faith for giving her the courage and stamina to face the challenge of her health crisis, she wants to encourage other women facing obstacles, large and small. Sister Wit was written to help the listener "celebrate, heal, and re-create the life God has given you to live." Telling her story with honesty, punctuated by scripture and humor, Jakes opens up her life and heart. The devotions she has included offer advice on dealing with daily annoyances, past hurts, and overwhelming conflicts. Recommended for libraries with large self-help and devotional collections.-Pam Kingsbury, Florence, AL Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.

Read an Excerpt


And they were calling to one another: "Holy, holy, holy is the LORD Almighty; the whole earth is full of his glory.

Isaiah 6:3 Wonder is music heard in the heart.

Rosemary Dobson

Today is no ordinary day. Every day we rise, we have the opportunity to witness the extraordinary. The very atmosphere teems with the presence of God. The sun's warm, golden rays shine into our windows. God claps His hands over this planet and we watch Him paint His love in living color, lavishly splashing radiant beauty onto the skies, abundantly covering the hills, the fields, the flowers and leaves.Without words, each day we experience the rhythmic throb of life. You and I, the very dust of the earth, watch as heavenly magic visits us with atmospheric drama. We may enjoy the warm luster of a colored rainbow or walk over buried treasures of coal, oil, minerals. Invisible gifts roar past us without our noticing-electricity and sound waves. The force of the wind is a full symphony orchestra in concert. And bubbling, white clouds tower high into the sky while the surprise of a brilliant sunset silently exhibits masterpieces of the universe. All designed to draw our attention away from the details of our day.Nature cannot hide the awe of God; rather, it has been hired to render the service of revealing those divine gifts strewn throughout the earth and flung under open heavens and freely given for you and me to enjoy. As we lay our heads down to sleep under the black face of the night sky while twinkling, shimmering stars light a path of glory, remember: the brilliance of God's footprints are found everywhere.Give praise to the Creator!
