To say I was surprised to find a devotional that incorporated Gilmore Girls and Scripture, as a means to improving our prayer lives, is something of an understatement.
To be honest, I was somewhat sceptical, but Mary Carver has written a bright, engaging and thought provoking devotional. It covers a range of topics, including; fashion, judgement, avoidance and working from home.
Fast Talk and Faith is not a Catholic devotional as such. What it does seem to do well is use ideas from the popular show, coupled with Scripture (think of Gilmore’s giving up coffee coupled with Jonah ignoring his problems) to help highlight areas in our own lives that need work.
Each chapter is short and succinct so it’s perfect for the time-poor, OK, just mums in general. It does also include a chapter or two of particular interest to the working mum.
If you’re a fan of the Gilmore Girls, or just in need of a fresh approach to your prayer life, this book is more than worthwhile.
