Coffee with God: A 40-Day Poetry Devotional
by Jean Mikulski
About the Book
Coffee with God: A 40-Day Poetry Devotional is a collection of 40 devotional poems that address topics including life’s daily struggles, interactions on social media, requesting help from God, and seeing God’s hand in the sights, sounds, and beauty of nature. What makes this unique is that rather than a written summary explaining the scripture beforehand, it speaks to the reader through scripture that ties in with the accompanying poem. The inspiration for the first poem (and ultimately this book’s title) came during one of Jean’s morning devotions…as she glanced across the table to an empty chair, she invited God to sit and have a cup of coffee with her. It was in that moment the “Coffee with God” poem was written which then spurred the creation of this collection.
