Judith Robl’s grandmother obviously made an unforgettable impression with her homespun axioms and adages – ones such as “How do you know you can’t unless you try?” “Don’t burn your bridges before you cross them,” “If your head won’t work, your heels must,” and “You will not make a scene and disgrace the family.” But who would believe such everyday admonitions could have biblical applications?
In AS GRANDMA SAYS: Timeless Words to Live By*, author Judith Robl has paired the everyday sayings with thoughtfully written meditations, well chosen scripture verses and brief prayers, thus creating forty-one devotional readings perfect for quiet moments of reflection.
Each page is illustrated with gorgeous paintings by artist Audrey Jeanne Roberts, turning the book into far more than just a devotional publication. It is a beautiful keepsake well suited for gift-giving and sharing.
It’s a delight to read, and I’m pleased to recommend it to you.
