50 Days of Devotion
Eavan Gilhuly, a graduate of Desert Christian Academy in Bermuda Dunes, CA has written an inspirational and heartfelt devotional, a publication that provides a specific spiritual reading for each calendar day. Gilhuly says the book, entitled Recognize, was penned as a tribute to her graduating class of 2019, and she presented it to them at a recent retreat.
The book is structured so that each devotional day begins with a Bible verse, followed by Gilhuly's thoughts and feelings about that verse and then a subsequent journal prompt. She says it was her pastor who suggested the format, with an emphasis on "God," then "you," and then "them." While she enjoyed writing each of the fifty entries, Gilhuly says her favorite devotional is Day #3: Lamentations 3:22-23, a passage focused on God’s faithfulness, mercies and promises.
A lifelong desert resident, Gilhuly plans to study nursing at Northwest University, a top-ranked Christian college near Seattle, in the fall. She does not rule out a follow up to Recognize but acknowledges the next book would likely be a different type of devotional.
