delights and difficulties of faith-filled living. She shines a vulnerable light on both deep suffering and tremendous joy through short stories, Scripture, prayers, and reflective meditations that read like entries from a journal.
More than a devotional, every chapter is a declaration of hope, that in the midst of this ordinary, fractured life, you are deeply cared for, intricately known, and immensely loved by God.

I would definitely rate Gathering Dandelions, by Melissa Maimone with 5 Stars. It was an excellent meditation devotional; one I would certainly recommend to others and pick up again and again to re-read myself. The graphics and title were great, simple yet creative. The message of faith spread from the very first sentence in the introduction to the closing prayer. Gathering Dandelions warmed my heart, fed my spirit with nourishment and insight and drew my nearer to our Lord and Saviour.
