Although the daily readings in this book can be read in a short period of time, they will provide the reader "food for thought" that will last much longer. Each devotion suggests that the reader begin with a scripture passage. Meditations uplift the spirit to give the reader a positive way to begin or end the day. The brevity of the selections enable women to find time for devotional reading at any time. Most important, Mother Wit helps the reader see how being an African-American woman has shaped her faith journey.
