The Quiet Place {review and giveaway!}

I started reading The Quiet Place to help ring in the New Year. I’ve never read any of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ other works, but I’m enjoying the tone of this one. Sweet, yet convicting. Truth delivered in a loving way.

I pull this book from my nightstand’s shelf just before I turn off the light each night. Each page is dated and includes a brief devotional perfect for this college girl’s sleepy brain.

“Most of us are too independently minded to naturally embrace the idea of a sovereign God…We may be able to accept this concept in regard to the good things that happen in our lives, but what about the hard things, the inexplicable things, those things for which we cannot see any reason or answers?” (February 10)

I often find that the topic for the day is exactly what I needed to hear. For instance, this insight into my struggle with God’s sovereignty? I was worrying that day.

“In His service we find privilege, purpose, and everlasting joy.” (June 7)

I peeked ahead and skimmed the devotional for this date because it’s my birthday! (I always peek ahead to that date in any devotional I’m reading.) What a beautiful quote — truly it is in serving God that my heart is fullest.

“I think Christ often grows larger in our eyes by continuing to be our rescuer and deliverer, rather than by making each test an easy A.” (September 30)

Precise writing and a clear love for the Word of God are evident in each devotional. This book could be read first thing in the morning, last thing at night, or anytime in between to set our eyes once again on our Savior. With a reading for each day of the year, this book is designed to provide a quiet place for those seeking not only refuge from the clatter and clamor, but also daily communion with Christ

“This One so majestic that He must ‘stoop’ even to gaze on the glories of heaven traveled all the way down into our meager existence, seeking our welfare at the expense of His own. How unthinkable, then, that we should ever exalt ourselves, defend our rights, or resist His right to order our lives.” (December 20)

Would you like to revel in that quiet place?

“It is my hope that this volume will help you cultivate a quiet heart and find fresh springs of blessing in the presence of the Lord.” (Nancy Leigh DeMoss)

    Yes, ma’am, I have. As a new believer (some 10 years ago), my pastor’s wife introduced me to “Lies Women Believe & the Truth that Sets them Free” and I have the trilogy set that includes: “Brokenness” & “Surrender” & “Holiness.”

    She’s a godly author and you won’t find trendy, but you’ll find Truth!

    Blessings.

  2. Jeriah says

    I’ve never read any of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ books, but I think that I’m going to change that very soon!

  3. Cindi Altman says

    Have you read any of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ books?
    No, I have not. This devotional does have me interested, though.

  4. Lisa says

    I have never heard of her but am definitely getting this devotional the next time I am at my local Christian bookstore!

  5. says

    I actually have not read any books by Demoss that I can recall, anyhow. However I have heard her speak on television I think or radio and I really liked what she had to say! So, I could use a book to read what she has to say and this looks to be a good one! :) – Rachel

  6. Shannon says

    I’ve read “Lies Young Women Believe.” A lot of the material was good, but I didn’t enjoy the busy page format. Some of the information may be too much for some young women. “Lies Women Believe” has been on my to-read list for a long time. I was never able to keep it out of the library long enough to get into it.

  7. says

    I thoroughly enjoy Nancy Leigh DeMoss books. I hadn’t heard of or read this one! I’d love to take a peek into the pages of another one of her books. Thanks for the giveaway! :-)

  8. says

    I have already read this, so I’m not going to enter. But it is a wonderful book, and I hope the winner is blessed as much as I was. Nancy Leigh DeMoss is absolutely marvelous.

  9. says

    I have not read any of Nancy Leigh DeMoss’ books, though I have heard her speak! I attended True Woman ’12 and loved her sessions!

  10. Andrea says

    Wow, I love all of Nancy’s books that I have read. A Place of Quiet Rest though is my favorite. I would definitely like to check this one out though. Thanks for blogging about it!

  11. says

    Thank you for doing this giveaway! The book looks really good! I don’t think I have ever read any of her books, but my sister read Lies Young Women Believe, and I want to read it soon, as well.

  12. Patience says

    What a lovely giveaway! I’ve never read any of her books yet, but this one sounds and looks like it would be a huge blessing! The book looks like a beautiful edition.

    Thank you!

  13. S.R. says

    I love Nancy’s books. I’ve read several- Lies Women Believe (this was very instrumental in my life these past few years!) and also Choosing Forgiveness (also very instrumental in my life about 5 years ago when I was struggling with unforgiving attitudes toward loved ones)
    Another one that I’m going to read this year is called Singled out for Him.

  14. Leah says

    I’ve read “Choosing Gratitude”, “A place of quiet rest”, and “Lies Women Believe”.
    I’ve been wanting this devotional–thank you for offering the opportunity to win! :)

  15. Emily says

    I’ve read “Surrender,” “Holiness,” and “Brokenness,” all by Nancy Leigh DeMoss and they are some of my favorite books, I highly recommend them. I’m in the middle of reading “Choosing Gratitude” right now.

  16. says

    Ooh!!! This book is on my to read list! :D I haven’t read any of Nancy’s books yet but I have bunches that I would like to read when I can afford to get copies of them. :) I’ve listened to a few talks of hhers online in the past and have greatly enjoyed them. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful quotes from the book Rachelle, you know how much I like those! ;)

    In Christ,
    ~Rachel~
