I ordered this book because I needed a short inspirational devotional for my limited time. The photography of the birds in this book is remarkably and majestically beautiful. Roslynn's words are encouraging, personal and valuable reminders for refocusing my heart and mind on the things of God. Reminders of God's lavish creation are wonderful ways to connect to our creator and I loved the way her deep insights and wise words resonate with my soul. I especially loved the devotion "Like Water off a Duck's Back" with her analogy to forgiveness. It was a fresh new thought and I love the word picture it creates in my mind and will think of it every time I need to let something go and simply forgive. I also loved the illustration of the picture that so perfectly captured the "Throw It Off" devotional. It was both captivating and funny! I am planning to buy many of these devotionals for my friends and family as this will make a perfect gift.

Lynn's nature and bird photography has captivated me and many people for years. Now we have a collection of beautiful birds and God's word intertwined to inspire us. This book is really exceptional; the photos are stunning and the stories with Bible passages really speak to me. Lynn listens to God through nature and His word, and this beautiful book is evidence of that. I got one for myself and several for friends. It's a great gift. Be inspired by scripture and nature, learn a lot about birds, and enjoy the beauty.

In the Shadow of His Wings is a stunning collection of inspirational messages and images. Through her love for birds, author and photographer Roslynn Long provides a beautiful message about the importance of pursuing a faith-filled life. The book offers 40 short devotionals inspired by birdwatching. Each devotion offers a vibrant photo complemented by scripture and meaningful thoughts. The author’s personal journey – both with birds and God – is a reminder about the ongoing challenges and rewards of being a Christian. This book will resonate with readers seeking a personal connection with God. I was inspired by the devotion "Listen to the Lord." The entire book offers peace and hope.

In the Shadow of His Wings by Roslynn Long is a 40 day uplifting devotional inspired by birds. Each page features a beautiful photo of a bird, scripture as well as a devotional. Devotionals are based on authors personal experience as well as biblical references. The photos that accompany featuring the birds are absolutely stunning. Many life lessons can be learned in nature often through birds and this devotional features a few of those lessons. This is a unique gift which is perfect for the nature or bird lover. Also perfect for one’s own journey and focusing more on nature and God's creation. Scripture quotations are from a variety of Bible translations and versions. Very well done devotional book. I would recommend. I was given a free copy from the publisher for my honest review which I was happy to do.

Devotion with God's Feathered Creations

“Each bird photograph in this book is a kind of ‘Ebenezer’ of my birding expeditions–they are reminders of the love and care of the Lord in even the smallest matters of life,” Roslynn Long writes in the introduction to her devotional, In the Shadow of His Wings: 40 Uplifting Devotions Inspired by Birds. ~ What ~ This square one-hundred-and-sixty-page hardbound targets those who enjoy a devotional devoted to birds and how they correlate to God. With beautiful photographs by the author, it contains Biblical stories and applications that are taken from the Holy Bible. The NIV, ESV, NASB, NKJV, and NLT versions are referenced. From three to five pages each, the forty devotions have one to two full-color photographs each of all types of birds that include bluebirds, cardinals, ducks, eagles, geese, hawks, herons, hummingbirds, loons, mallards, meadowlarks, owls, sparrows, swans, and more. The devotions relate to various topics such as the Garden of Eden, the attributes and characteristics of God, what Jesus did for us, and how we can be more Christlike. Bible verses are gleaned from books like Genesis, I Samuel, Psalms, Jeremiah, Nahum, Matthew, Luke, John, Galatians, Colossians, Hebrews, James, and I John to name a few. ~ Why ~ Those who like birds and reading short devotions that focus on God will enjoy this book. The photographs are simple yet stunning as they display our Maker’s creativity. The readings blend how birds can remind us of the Lord’s love, care, and encouragement. One devotional I appreciated was Don’t Look Down about Peter faltering when he walked on the water to Jesus, which is mentioned in Matthew 14. The writer ties the story to a mallard duckling having to jump off a wooden ledge; he looked at his mother instead of down. Only by focusing on Christ can we address our fears and take a leap of faith toward Him as we go through day-to-day trials. ~ Why Not ~ Those who do not have a personal relationship with the Almighty may not be interested in this type of book. Others may not care for the many stories that include the author’s personal experiences, although they do revert to God. ~ Wish ~ Since there are no page numbers listed, it is hard to find a specific bird listed at the back of the book. Adding a ribbon marker would be ideal. ~ Want ~ If you are or know a bird lover who loves looking at photographs and reading about God’s feathered creatures, this would be a thoughtful and uplifting devotional. Thanks to Baker Publishing and the author for this complimentary book that I am under no obligation to review.
