Reading a daily devotional feeds the soul and feeding on God’s word each day is an essential spiritual practice for our walk with Him. But do you ever just plan don’t have time for your morning routine? I sure have had that lately and feel a parchedness in my soul and a disconnect from God.
I lived through a series of difficult nights and early mornings helping a dear friend through major health issues.
Then this week my husband and I left at 5 a.m. to take another friend to the hospital for early morning surgery.
My morning time with God has disappeared.
Except for one bright moment:
Author Beth Bence Reinke sent me her pocket size devotional to review. Little did she know she sent it to me just at the right time, as I desperately needed a way to communicate with God in a quick and easy fashion. Her words provided nourishment just when I most required them.
Fruit Lovers’ Devotions to Go is unique in several ways.
First it is pocket size, so it fits easily into a purse or pocket. Its 30-day inspirational set of devotions is perfect for on the go and hurried times.
Secondly Beth is a registered dietitian, so besides including nutrition for the soul she has added delicious fruit filled recipes. Mmmmmm, good!
“Fruit is mentioned almost two hundred times in the Bible. Words and phrases such as ‘fruitful,’ ‘fruit-bearing,’ and ‘fruit of the spirit’ are used through scripture to describe a fulfilling, abundant life. I hope these devotions give you fresh, fruitful insight and inspire you to become fruit-filled in body and spirit. Remember… just add fruit!”
Her stories will feed your heart and provide fuel for your day. I know her words certainly helped me through the hectic times.
This book would be a great gift to give to a harried parent or someone needing a quick dose of encouragement.
Fruit Lovers’ Devotions to Go is available currently as an e-book through Amazon. It is also available in paperback at this site.
Looking for good nourishment for your body and your soul? Take in Fruit Lover’s Devotions to Go.

Esther, Nancie, Nikki and Connie – you are all so sweet to come and read Jean’s review. Thank you!
And Connie, using the book as a hostess gift for BBQs is a great idea!
I know what you mean about God blessing you with His Word right when you need it. I am also a busy mom of two active boys. Devotionals are a must in my hurried life. With summertime looming on the horizon I am looking forward to all the great fruit to eat at picnics and BBQs. This book looks like the perfect hostess gift to bring along to share God’s precious fruit too. Thanks for the review! I’ll be ordering extra copies to share !
As a very busy parent of 4 young boys, I certainly understand life getting in the way of daily devotionals. I haven’t had the opportunity to read Beth’s Fruit Lover’s Devotions To Go yet, but I do have Writers’ Devotions to Go from Extreme Diva Media. After reading these reviews, I’m going to have to add Beth’s book to my library – or maybe in my purse where it is more likely to get read. I can always use a dose of spiritual fruit on the go!

so glad you both enjoyed the review and the book. Great addition to our bookshelf!
Every woman needs some heavenly inspiration and I have a dear friend who is always on the go. Family, Friends, Work, and her Dad is in a nursing home! I just ordered a copy of Beth Reinke’s new book for my friend and a copy for me! I know we will enjoy Ms Reinke’s Fruit Lover’s Devotional. Reading the review written by Jean Wise prompted me to order immediately. I am looking forward to receiving my copy and equally excited about presenting a copy to my dear friend! —- That’s what friends are for…
Jeanie, I completely agree!! Ms. Reinke’s Fruit Lover’s Devotional is beautifully written and holds sweet nuggets of God’s grace and wisdom. Sometimes life just simply takes up ALL of life and this wonderful little book can go right along with you. I am NOT a person who finds myself comfortable in the kitchen, but the recipe’s included with each of the devotions are tempting even ME to get out my measuring spoons. A wise Nanny once said, “A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down… In the most delightful way.” Reading Beth’s devotions is like a lovely dose of heavenly sugar and will surely make even the most medicinal days a little more delightful. Thank you for reviewing this book! I am “sweeter” for having read it!!
