Product Description

Daily Devotions for Lent

"Griffin is a trustworthy guide . . . She writes with the unmistakable authenticity and authority of a woman steeped in prayer."–America

Join Emilie Griffin in these daily devotions for Lent. Using ancient and modern texts as inspiration for her own reflections, Emilie Griffin nurtures and guides us into a deeper knowledge of ourselves and God. We discover that Lent is our chance for a fresh start, and an opportunity to joyfully put ourselves in God's hands.

We are converted not only once in our lives but many times, and the conversion is little by little and often imperceptible. But Lent gives us a time to move the process along, intentionally, by a series of small surrenders. When we choose some exercise for Lent–daily worship, daily prayer, abstinence from one thing or another, it is not so much the practice that transforms us, but it is our willingness to change. -from Small Surrenders


A guide to Lent invites spiritual observance and a willingness to be transformed by grace, offering new insights into various aspects of Lent--the "small surrenders" believers make throughout the season. Original.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stellar - like all of Griffin's writings 22 Oct 2008
By Jan Gunter - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read this as my Lenten spiritual reading this year, and it was brilliant. One day when the reading was particularly on point for my experience, I came to my keyboard and typed out a response to Emilie Griffin herself - found her email address online. The act of writing out my response was beautiful in itself, and I always consider something that stimulates my thought enough to have to write about it to be a good read! But the bonus was that I got an email response from Emilie who, despite her thick resume, is a wonderful, personable woman. This book took me full circle from reading, to meditating on scripture, to response, to community. It doesn't get any better than that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Small Surrenders by Emilie Griffin 16 Mar 2009

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful Lenten study. The daily readings are short, but full of deep thought and contemplation. It is good for a small group or just for personal use. This is my second year to do this, and I am learning new things every day.

This is a great daily devotional for Lent and Easter. I enjoyed it and look forward to using it again for the mext season. There were many stories that gave you something to really think about during that time of year. It was worth purchasing.
