A Lady’s Bedside Reading

Dear Homemaker,

Do you have any books you keep on your bedside table? Maybe you prefer magazines or an electronic reader. I always keep a Bible near my bed and a couple of books to go along. Right now I’m reading thru Romans. Here is what Martin Luther says about the book in 1552:

“This Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, and it is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it everyday, as the daily bread of the soul. It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes.”


While I don’t think I will memorize the whole book of Romans any time soon, I do agree that it could most definitely serve as daily bread. Romans so clearly displays our need for a savior and then gives us the only hope there is, a faith in Jesus Christ. I was trying to come up with a fancy bible study for myself but I think simpler is better right now. I’m reading a chapter of Romans a day and a few pages in Martin Luther’s commentary. Put that on repeat until the commentary is done.

Another book I’m currently reading is The Hidden Help Meet by Debi Pearl and Denny Kenaston.


I was intrigued when I saw this book was being published because I listen to Denny Keneston’s recorded messages on cd. Brother Denny as he was referred to passed away several years ago. Mrs. Pearl (a close friend of Jackie Kenaston) took the transcript of Keneston’s message titled the Hidden Woman and added to it with her wisdom and insights. She wanted women everywhere to have this valuable message by the medium of the written word.

Humbly Yours,

Mrs. Smith
