What others are saying about Where Family Meets Faith – A Collection of Devotional Writings


Just what I needed to hear on a recent bad day
By R. Grant
As other reviewers have mentioned, the author takes very common, everyday family occurrences and passes on the spiritual insights she’s learned from them. The family occurrences most often are that of a mother interracting with her children, and I have to confess I am childless. So why did I pick up this book? Because family relationships, my prayers for my family and for God to work in us, are just about the most important things in my life. And I found that the lessons Ms. Payne passed along will work for most of us. One day a couple of weeks ago, I started to pray about a family situation that was on my mind, but I was having a bit of a faith struggle and picked up this book. Turning to the next devotional, I found the one titled “Gifts,” which convicted me that, like the little girl in the story, I do sometimes assume that God is going to say no. And I know that, like the parents in the story, God really is often in the process of getting me something even better than the flashy but used item I’m asking for, if I would just have the patience to wait for him. These devotionals will help you see God’s hand and his nature as you go through your day.


Practical and Real
By J. Steve Miller
This devotional is written in crystal clear prose, illustrated primarily with the author’s experiences as a wife and mother. While her insights apply to all, they’ll be especially well-received by mothers of young children, who’ll likely find themselves identifying with the author on every page as she faces the challenges of this stage of life.

I love her candor in describing her own resistance to forgive those who hurt her or to admit when she’s wrong. We’ve all been there, or will be there, so it’s refreshing to read an author who lets us into her life rather than sugarcoat her flaws. Without being preachy, she finds answers in the Scriptures and points us to God for strength.


Where Family Meets Faith
By Chris
I truly enjoyed reading the devotionals about everyday family experiences and the lessons we can learn from them. Each devotional has a strong message on how we can build our relationship with God. I’m a big fan of Kimberley Payne and have read many of her books. This book is another inspiring and encouraging book that draws you closer to God!


Honest and Heartfelt
By P. Creeden
I love how this author thinks. She takes everyday circumstances and sees the light of Christ and what He has done for us in the daily life. I love that. This could easily be used as a family devotional, one that is read together for twenty-nine days. Even if you read it alone, you’ll find gems worthy of keeping in the promise box of your heart.


Well-done Kimberley!
By Ray Wiseman
In each of Kimberly Payne’s 29 devotions, she starts with an illustration drawn from family life, then moves into a a biblical application. Nowhere does she become obscure or enigmatic. She deals with familiar everyday family situations: the cat, the dog, the campfire. She then goes where most of us fail to go by presenting the parallel between the family illustration and our relationship with God. Well-done Kimberley.
