Bouquet of Wisdom is a book of thirty reflections, personal stories paired with a flower and a lesson. Deanna looks back on a little girl who found courage in a bouquet of sticky dandelions. She remembers the teenager who wilted in the spotlight of a daffodil pageant. She treasures Christmas memories that included poinsettias in a hospital, paperwhites sitting on rocks, and beautiful blue hydrangeas in Brazil. Some blossoms remind her of God’s faithfulness; others emphasize his care. Each experience was a lesson learned.
In life’s memorable blossoms is a God who’s been in the details of our life. And in those experiences, he helps us find wisdom and gain understanding. Yes, the flowers surrounding us create a unique collection of memories, and those memories can come together in an exquisite bouquet.

Psalms Alive! can be best described as a devotional study of thirteen selected psalms. The writing is devotional in that its goal is to have the reader reflect, ponder and apply the truths of the psalms, but unlike a typical devotional these readings do not end after a page. Each chapter or reading is about 5-6 pages in length and it ends with a number of questions or suggested activities to make that psalm come alive for the reader. In this way the author examines thirteen psalms in the space of twenty-six chapters--237 pages. The questions or application portion of each chapter make this book ideal for small group discussion. The goal throughout, as the subtitle suggests, is for the reader to connect to connect with God--to connect heaven and earth by means of the psalms.

Life is filled with avenues that can render you helpless and void of understanding. As we go through trials and tribulations, we oftentimes forget that nothing shall overtake us as long as our hope is anchored in Jesus. Our faith must be solid in hope. And our hope must be wrapped up in trust. Confidence comes out of trust. The more time you spend with someone the more you will discover their nature, character, and spirit. As we spend time with God, we will develop confidence, which will produce trust, and this will sky-rocket our faith. He has already made promises concerning us and declarations over us. His love for us cannot be moved and will never waver. Forty-five women united in the spirit of compassion to share jewels of faith, encouragement, testimonies, declarations, life-lessons, and empowerment.
