Want to start having a consistent quiet time, but don’t know where to start?
Check out this tool – Savoring Living Water: How to Have an Effective Quiet Time by authors and bloggers – Lara Williams and Katie Orr. This e-book gives you practical skills to dig into God’s Word for yourself.
In “Savoring Living Water,” Katie Orr and Lara Williams teach on how to have an effective time in God’s Word. Through the pages of this book, you will discover:
- A practical how-to method for studying the Bible on your own.
- Tips on connecting with God in a meaningful way through journaling and Scripture memory.
- Ways to deal with the distractions that inevitably arise during a quiet time.
- How to apply God’s Word to the moments of daily living.
HIVE RESOURCES: Why did you & Katie Orr write Savoring Living Water?
Lara: We wanted to create a simple, practical resource that women could use to help them glean from the Word.
HIVE RESOURCES: What does Savoring Living Water help women do?
Lara: Too often the Bible seems intimidating. It’s easier to grab a Bible study or book. But we wanted to help empower Christ-followers to search the Word on their own.
HIVE RESOURCES: What tips does Savoring Living Water give for helping busy women (and even new moms) integrate a consistent quiet time in their daily schedule?
Lara: One thing to remember is that it delights the Lord when we desire to spend time with Him searching His Word. So if all we have is five minutes due to our season of life, then that five minutes is beautiful. And He will bless.
It’s also good to create a “scheduled” time. Not to be legalistic but just as a way of being a good steward with the time we’re given.
HIVE RESOURCES: What is the biggest mistake women make in setting up their quiet time?
Lara: Setting too high of expectations. Comparing ourselves to what we think is perfection in others. No one does it perfectly. The point is to spend time with the Lover of our soul — the One who delights over us and wants to guide and speak to us.
I hope you’ll pick up this amazing book or one of Lara and Katie’s other Bible studies. You can find out more about their books here, including Lara’s newest release on marriage – To Walk or Stay: Trusting God through shattered hopes and suffocating fears.
