This book is PHENOMENAL!

Just as there are season in nature... So too we have seasons in our lives and in our spiritual and emotional development.

Patti starts out by sharing her "winter season" where life was really dark and cold and dreary.

Learning from that season Patti understood that:

"Life is never static. 
Physical, emotional, financial and spiritual ups and downs are all a part of this journey called life."

Patti realized that she was experiencing something actually wonderful...

Now she shares her thoughts and stories and scripture gems with us to explain the seasons we all go through...

And she gives us a "year of exploration and reflection."

Broken down into the months of the year Patti gives us things to do to strengthen our hope no matter what season we might find ourselves in.

I so wish I could just copy/paste the entire book in is THAT GOOD!

Here is a very brief highlight of December and January:

* December: A time to hope~ December is a season to turn to our Savior. A season of joy; but it can also be a season of dark.  "Only when we have endured the blackest of nights and the darkest of days can we truly appreciate the light...Nothing can compare to the gut-wrenching process of drawing near, pressing in, and clutching onto God when little else is left." As you go through a "winter season" in your life do not turn away from your Heavenly Father; turn to Him.

When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. ~Isaiah 43:2*

* January: A time to renew~ A brand new year! A time most people get serious about losing weight and transforming their bodies. Spend some time this January working on an "extreme spiritual makeover." Patti teaches us how to have a spiritual nose job, a spiritual face lift and a spiritually new wardrobe and even more in this chapter. A physical makeover is expensive while a spiritual makeover is a gift.

Spend your time and energy in training yourself for spiritual fitness. Physical exercise has some value, but spiritual exercise is much more important, for it promises a reward in both this life and the next. ~1 Timothy 4:7b-8*

Are you in a "WINTER season" of hoping, renewing, and waiting?
Or are you in a "SPRING season" of changing, planting, and trusting?
Or are you in a "SUMMER season" of giving, celebrating, resting?
Or are you in an "AUTUMN season" of harvesting, believing, thanking?

No matter what season you are in this book will enlighten your mind, bring hope to your heart, and give you much to ponder~

Take time each month to study and understand that we worship "A GOD FOR ALL SEASONS." He will ALWAYS be with you :)
