Item description for Meditations for Cat Lovers by Deanna Hansen-Doying...
Overview Meditations For Cat Lovers are devotional tales of the author's life as a brand new Christian, living on a secluded Caribbean island with an orphaned calico cat named Faithfully Mine.
Community Description A young woman, an orphaned kitten, and a new friend come together in Meditations for Cat Lovers. The book consists of fifty-two devotions inspired by true-life events chronicled through the young woman's journal she describes as her "letters to God."
This daily devotional offers a touching blend of revelation and wit as the young woman asks and receives from her heavenly Father.
Early readings describe the author during a stage when she was resistant to the Holy Spirit's leading upon her life. During these days, Deanna journeys to a Caribbean island and opens what will become a successful tearoom. As Deanna's business blossoms, she receives wise counsel from an islander named Ruth, a mature Christian. Yet Deanna is resistant to Ruth's witness--until a tiny newborn kitten changes everything.
Through the life lessons learned through nurturing this kitten and the continual counsel provided by Ruth, Deanna comes to know Jesus as Lord and Nurturer of her life. In the months that follow, both the kitten and the new Christian thrive.

Meditations of a different stripe. Fall in step with Deanna's spiritual journeying. This little book is accessible, down to earth and as warm as the wooden floor boards of the front porch in sunshine.

This is a delightful little read that will keep you smiling from the first page to the last. Perfect gift for my more spiritual friends -- whether they are crazy about cats or not! Think I'll buy several and use as stocking stuffers this year.
Wonderful Book! Nov 11, 2005
This is a wonderful read that will make you laugh, smile and enjoy the island life along with the author. Great insight with thought provoking questions that you will definitely leave you considering all that our Awesome God has in store for us each day. A fantastic gift!!!
Best Devotional Nov 9, 2005
Refreshing. Uplifting. Amazing. Heart-warming. Unique. These are just a few of the words that come to mind when I try to describe this book. I have never written a review here before, but I simply had to rave about "Meditations for Cat Lovers." Many first-rate devotionals are inspiring and bring a tear to the eye, but a page-turner? I couldn't put it down! In fact, it is a gripping story about a woman's inner struggles as she moves through a year of her life, and how her cat taught her some valuable lessons. Lessons I am so glad that Ms. Hansen-Doying has shared with the rest of us. I read it cover-to-cover in three days. Now I guess I will have to read it again the proper way. I will be giving this wonderful little book to all of my loved ones this Christmas, and you should, too!

I am so impressed -- not only the content, but the design and the appearance of the book. Its beautiful. I plan to get them for my girls for Christmas. I sat there reading and could hardly read because of the tears. It is beautifully written and I really think you did a marvelous job - the best yet.
