I was so glad to see that Kathy Howard’s “Deep-Rooted” devotional is unlike most other devotional books I have read. This book is not your typical fluffy, surface level kind of devotional that seeks to present the reader with merely an inspirational pep talk. No, Kathy’s words point you right to the deep and powerful truths of the gospel while connecting you with practical, easy to understand application. I especially appreciated the daily reflection questions and how they move the reader to dig deeper into God’s Word on their own. Amy Hale, Bible Teacher, Conference Speaker, & Instagram Influencer
If we’re honest, faithfully reading our Bible remains a struggle for many of us. We don’t understand it, feel like we must be missing something, or wonder what and where to begin reading. Kathy Howard brings the life and work of Jesus to us in stunning display in her devotional Deep-Rooted. If you want to understand the great drama of the gospel story and feel the awe and wonder his disciples experienced standing in his presence and witnessing his miracles, Deep-Rooted is the perfect place to begin. A must read for a new believer and a wonderful awakening for those familiar with the gospel accounts, Deep-Rooted proves to be the deep strengthening every one of us need to live in security in a shifting world. Erica Wiggenhorn- Bible teacher and author of Unexplainable Jesus: Rediscovering the God You Thought You Knew by Moody Publishers.
Because I love both devotionals that take me deep and meaty studies of God’s Word, author Kathy Howard’s new book “Deep-Rooted – Growing through the Gospel of Mark” satisfies on all levels! Not only is the reader inspired with how the Bible intersects with her real life, but in the process of working through all the sections of each day – Read, Record, Reflect, and Respond – we come away with a full knowledge of Christ’s life as recorded in the gospel of Mark. This is an incredibly valuable resource for daily prayer and study time, and I hope you will get one for yourself and someone who’d love to start the New Year rooted deeply in the hope and power of Christ.
