WOW! Women of Writing Book Review for “Time to Refresh” by Karen Brown Tyson

wow logo

I am honoured to be part of the WOW! Women of Writing Blog Tour for Time to Refresh by Karen Brown Tyson, which I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received an advance copy to read and review.)

My Review

Time to Refresh by Karen Brown Tyson is a 21 Day devotional that was written as a result of being laid off from a position Karen loved. As she struggled to make sense of it, she came to God for understanding.
Time to Refresh has clear guidelines that allow us to take a daily journey with God as you recover your balance and focus.
We all face challenges in our lives and this devotional can help you face those challenges or timeouts.
Each day begins with a note from Karen, with her thoughts and prayers. She quotes bible verses and uses the stories in them to provide “Timeout Takeaways”. She then uses the G.L.O.W. Method to further delve into one’s relationship with God.
I have been sidelined the past two years, as I have put my husband’s health issues front and centre, thus putting my writing and art on the back burner.
I decided to not only read Karen’s book, but follow the advice each day, with journaling, prayer and reading scripture. Listing what I was grateful for each day was a wonderful way to start the day. I felt a renewed connection with God, one I had pushed back the last few years.
This is a very practical, but powerful book, one where Karen is with us along on this journey to find a new path, as we emerge from our own timeout.
Time to Refresh certainly will transform you. Thank you Karen for your very special book.
