Meet the Author

L. B. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.

La Senora Cowman y su esposo fueron pioneros en Japon y China desde 1901 hasta 1917. Durante ese tiempo ayudaron a fundar la Sociedad Oriental Misionera.

    For those struggling through life ......

    This devotional was suggested by a friend in June of 2008. As much as I love "My Utmost For His Highest", which I also own, this devotional is exceptional. Rarely will you find constant day to day messages geared towards the great difficulties that many of us face in our day to day lives. If you are going through great mental, emotional, or physical tribulations in life; this devotional is most definitely for you. Or if you know someone in great need of some very deep inspiration to get them through their days, refer this devotional to them. I have given my copy to a dear friend who I know will receive many benefits from it, and cannot wait to get another copy for myself. Do yourself a favor and stop at the store and just read a few days from this incredibly annointed and blessed author. You will be amazed at her gift, and twice blessed from her words of comfort and exhortation.

    The Best Devotional Book Ever Written

    I started reading this book in print about 25 years ago and I am still reading it, but now as a Nook Book. I love it in today's English language. I couldn't recommend another book higher except the Bible.

    I Also Recommend:

    A Daily Devotional That Lasts for Years

    "Streams in the Desert, Vol.1", the unedited version by Mrs. Charles Cowman, differs considerably from the edited version: it's 100% better. I have been a fan of this book since the 1970s when a church member gave it to me as a gift. In the years since, each daily reading seems uniquely fitted to my situation, no matter how many times I've read it before. How many times have I read it before? Nearly daily for over thirty years, and its message remains fresh and pertinent.<BR/><BR/>"Streams" stands the test of time and deserves placement in a class by itself. I've read many other devotionals, but none has the constant applicability to each new day that this one does.<BR/><BR/>Mrs. Cowman married a missionary to China, who left for health reasons during the growing unrest preceding the Chinese revolution. She nursed her husband for 17 years, and these pages comprise the individual quotations, Scripture, and personal reflections which comforted her during those trying and agonizing years, and during the following loneliness of widowhood. <BR/><BR/>The edited versions remove the original spirit which embues her original, and I do not recommend them.<BR/><BR/>For those who are looking for solace, encouragement, perspective, I highly recommend "Streams In the Desert, Vol. 1." I have given this book to friends and acquaintances over the years, and they have found the same uncanny relevance in this truly inspired and inspiring book.

    Great devotional! Very practical and life applicable.

    This book came highly recommended, and I have not been disappointed. Daily reads that make so much sense and can be applied to your daily walk with God. Very uplifting and so many times the day's read included exactly what I needed!

    Hv

    Near the nursery and medicine den, the leaders den is under a large rock pile. With one rock for the ceiling, two large rocks stand next to each other, creating the walls of the den. A staircase of smaller rocks leads up to the roof of the den, where the leader will stand and speak to her clan.
