My very first thought was, "This book is gorgeous!" Isn't the cover just beautiful. I was so attracted to the book because of the cover. Then I opened it and found beautiful biblically based devotionals that were both encouraging and challenging. Sarah Beth draws from scripture, her personal life experiences, others' experiences etc to weave a beautiful text that is easy to read and understand. I found myself wanting to spend time quietly with the Lord and let him into the garden of my heart. The prayers are great and the reflection questions are perfectly paired with the devotionals. They help the reader connect with the Lord on an intimate level. I did feel the devotionals were a little long. They could have been shortened a bit and not lose any effectiveness. Other than that I loved this book. I received a copy from the publisher. I was in no way required to write a positive review. All thoughts are my own.

review:(I received a free copy from the publisher for review) This is a book that is set up for you to complete in 30 days you can of course finish it quicker than that.I like how each chapter was pretty short so it would not take long to get through one,I think it is nice that she gave you questions,prayers I did not read the prayers but I think that is great.I like how she used experiences from her own life in some of the chapters.I think that this is a great book for women I think the cover its pretty and the materiel of the cover is different.

Sarah's sweet, gentle style of encouragement is refreshing. This book is great for individual devotions or could easily be adapted for group study and discussion.

This beautiful book encourages you to delight in your quiet and intimate times with the Lord as it draws you into His word, his whispers, and moments of reflection to journal your thoughts. I look forward to going to the garden where the Lord is waiting for me each day with this beautiful book to help guide me there. Sarah Beth Marr so graciously and beautifully paints the picture of God's whispers and reminds us of who we are in Christ. For every girl and woman who yearns for quiet time with the Lord in the midst of busyness and crowdedness, this book is excellent to help you make it a daily pattern to draw closer and deeper with the one who decks us with wildflowers. It is also wonderful to pair up with sisters in Christ and journey through quiet time with the Lord together!

Whispers and Wildflowers helps us retreat to the very heart of God. Sarah Beth Marr’s writing is immensely special to me, as she speaks and lives as God’s precious vessel. Her new book helps us draw ever closer to Jesus, encouraging us and teaching us to live in His heavenly peace amidst life’s chaos. Stemming from that is the joy unspeakable we long for, which can only come from being ever present with God. This daily retreat to God helps us to dig deeper and grow closer to Him. Sarah’s book not only helps us to become who God created us to uniquely be, but as such it helps us to become better reflections of our dear Savior. 
Decked with wildflowers… is there a lovelier beginning to a life-changing journey closer to God? Sarah once again helps us lean into the heartbeat of the One who loves beyond measure. This book is a gift with eternal impact, written with beauty and grace.

For someone who may struggle with the concept of being still and finding time to practice the art of stillness and solitude during the day, I feel like this book was so helpful. This book has 30 days worth of devotions and each is short enough that it doesn’t require a large time commitment, but also filled with a lovely amount of hand picked Bible verses and quotes that it allows the reader to really dig into the Word of God and hear what God needs to speak over them. The author has a refreshing style of writing that draws in the reader and sets their heart and mind at peace as they read. Such a fantastic read as the year begins or as the reader approaches Easter and lent. So thankful for this author and how she shares these thoughts with her reader. I was gratefully given an early copy to read so that I could post my honest thoughts.

The very cover of Whispers and Wildflowers by Sarah Beth Marr brought a desire to my heart to slow down, open the cover, and read her words. We long for our lives to be focused, have a clear mission, and a heart that pursues God every day. But as women, we are living busier than ever and often are distracted, overwhelmed with our schedules, and overtired. "What did Jesus do when He felt all the noise closing in on Him? Instead of pushing through it and keeping on keeping on, He withdrew... He retreated. Jesus's heart stayed healthy because of those retreats with God." (from page 13) The book is an invitation to draw close to our Lord, spending a few quiet moments each day so that our hearts can be in tune with Him. Whispers and Wildflowers is a 30 day devotional book written to pull our hearts back into deep and continued connection with God. Each day consists of: a main Scripture and thought questions and space to journal called "Garden Moments for Your Soul" a written prayer The book was hard to put down as each day was inspirational and meant to be savored. If you are feel distracted, burnt out, depleted, or overwhelmed, this book is for you as you will find it to be a balm for your soul. **I was provided a copy of this book by Baker Publishing Group for review. All opinions are honest and my own.

The daily readings in this 30-day devotional are bite-sized (an average of about 6-8 minutes of reading time each day apart from journaling and meditation - easy to fit into a busy schedule). The subjects and observations resonate with my soul. They are practical, understandable, and, in a word, real. I particularly like that the vast majority of the Scripture references are printed in the text so there is no interruption to the flow of the devotion, There is plenty of room for notes and journaling. Sarah Beth Marr's examples encourage. I found myself again and again saying, "Yes. I feel that way, too! I am not the only one." Time well spent.

This 30 day devotional book is like honey for your soul. Its a great encouragement! The cover is beautiful and the words Sarah has written inside are even more beautiful. The Bible verses sprinkled inside the pages are such joy for a weary heart. I love that this book also has space to journal at the end of each devotion. In reading this book I have definitely listened more for Gods little whispers in life. This book is great for any woman in any walk of life. A breathe of fresh air!

Sarah's heart to see women come into a deeper relationship with Jesus is evident through her writing and completion of this book. This book is perfect for any woman that is overwhelmed by life in general or just needs an opportunity to learn how to slow down again and enjoy her time with the One who loves her more than anyone else.

If you are looking for a devotional to enhance your quiet time, this is it. Whispers and Wildflowers is filled with thoughtful reflections for daily life. It is an invitation to look inward and take notice of what God is doing. Each devotional ends with thoughtful reflection questions that encourage the reader to take inventory of their hearts and lives. Sarah also includes a prayer for each day and space for journaling your own personal reflections and prayers. Her daily devotions have been a balm for my soul, reminding me to take the time to breathe deeply and savor my time with the Lord.

This book is a treasure. When I read this book I feel as though I have known the author, Sarah Beth Marr for years and I feel understood . It’s simple to understand and yet it speaks to my innermost soul and deepest thoughts . It makes me still on the inside even when the day is not quiet on the outside. Whispers and Wildflowers helps me to understand that God is my very best friend and that He cares deeply about the intimate desires of my heart and nourishes me to bring them to bloom.

This book is such a beautiful 30 day devotional. Each chapter contains ways to remember that God is keeping us in His grasp and that we can rest in that. Sarah does a beautiful job of integrating this concept with some questions at the end of each chapter to help guide you along. I would recommend this book to anyone who needs to find rest and stillness in the midst of their busy lives. I received an early copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
