Hope for all seasons. Encouragement for all times. Love from God for all year. 

As nature’s seasons change, so too do the seasons of our soul. But God’s love never changes. He is with us through every season of our lives. Through times of sorrow, times of joy; times of plenty, times of want; times of longing, times of contentment—God’s love never leaves us. 

Join author Patti Tingen in a year of exploration, as she reflects on her own spiritual journey and provides hope and encouragement for yours—month by month, season by season. 

Find reassurance and pause for reflection in the inspirational readings for each month of the year. In winter’s darkest days—hope, renew, wait; in spring’s blossoming beauty—change, plant, trust; in summer’s wondrous warmth—give, celebrate, rest; in autumn’s colorful coolness—harvest, believe and thank. 

In all times and in every season—may you be blessed.
