Jane Austen Devotional ~ A Gift of Encouragement

"I have often observed how little young ladies are interested by books of a serious stamp, though written solely for their benefit. It amazes me, I confess; for, certainly, there can be nothing so advantageous to them as instruction."
~ Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice (per Mr. Collins...)

Ahhh… To find a volume full of instruction while being entertaining is a rare find! It would certainly have the approval of Mr. Collins! To feast on a witty passage from Jane Austen only to follow it by dessert, the Word of God, is what A Jane Austen Devotional offers its Regency-loving readers.  This beautifully packaged hardbound book offers us a glimpse into our favorite novels along with corresponding encouragement and Scripture. Brew yourself a cup of coffee or tea and enjoy this wholesome form of recreation. Mothers and maidens will find this a pleasurable (but purposeful) repose, indeed!

“...but for my own part, if a book is well written, I always find it too short.”
~ Jane Austen

“I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!
How much sooner one tires of any thing than of a book! "
~ Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice


"Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things."
~ Philippians 4:8

    1. It is very much a pleasure to read, Ashley :)

  2. I have this devotional. Being a Jane Austen fan I find new ways of thinking about this classic set of books by relating them to Biblical themes. I do not read it every day, as I have many devotionals but It is a great little book.
