L. B. Cowman worked as a pioneer missionary with her husband in Japan and China from 1901 to 1917, during which time they helped found the Oriental Missionary Society. When Mr. Cowman's poor health forced the couple to return to the United States, Mrs. Cowman turned her attention to caring for her husband until his death six years later. Out of Mrs. Cowman's experiences and heartbreak came her first book, Streams in the Desert, followed by its companion Springs in the Valley. During the next twenty-five years, Mrs. Cowman inspired several nationwide Scripture distribution campaigns and wrote seven more books. Finally, on Easter Sunday in 1960, at the age of ninety, Mrs. Cowman met face-to-face the God she had served so faithfully for nearly a century.

Streams in the Desert Mar 27, 2007
This devotional is absolutely fabulous. One of the very best. Easy to read, applies to the difficulties and trials of life and how God walks us through those times.
A Blessing Mar 21, 2007
I was watching Good Morning America one morning and Robin was talking about this devotional book and for some reason it really caught my interest. I have been searching for a true devotional book for several months. My best friend called me later that morning and mentioned that she, also, had seen Robin talking about it so we decided to order it. Little did I know that in just a few days my family was going to be facing a crisis unlike anything we had ever been through. If it were not for this book, I don't know where I would be in my mind and faith at this point. It has truly been the Stream in my Desert.

This book has become my prayer daily -- the poems are remarkable and the writings are succinct and educational. I would recommend this book to anyone as a daily guide through life.

Very Inspirational book Mar 19, 2007
I saw this on the morning show with Robin telling everyone about how her grandmother had this book and gave it to her. I purchased two -one for my daughter and one for me. We have both enjoyed it so much as it gives you something everyday to encourage you with life's journey. I am planning on giving it for Christmas gifts to my friends as it is perfect for anyone.
