Daily Encouragement for Your Soul through the Prayers of Jane Austen
For more than two hundred years, Jane Austen and her novels have charmed readers from around the world. While much has been written about her fascinating life, less is known about Jane’s spiritual side. In this beautiful 31-day devotional, Miss Austen’s faith comes to life through her exquisite prayers, touching biographical anecdotes, and illuminating scenes from her novels. Each reading also includes a thematically appropriate Scripture and a prayer inspired by Jane’s petitions.
May this journey into Jane Austen’s life of faith and prayer ignite and deepen your own relationship with the Father who loves you.

IN MY OPINION
Part devotional and part biography, Praying with Jane gives readers a peek into Jane Austen’s personal and spiritual life. As a Janeite, I thoroughly enjoyed this look into Austen’s relationships with God and her family.
Rachel Dodge takes three of Austen’s prayers and breaks them down for closer reflection and study over the course of thirty-one days. Each short devotional includes practical application, scripture, an invitation to prayer, and an actual prayer.
This beautiful little book is the perfect gift for the Austen fan in your life or for those looking for a short devotional to either start their day or supplement their Bible study.

Looks like an interesting devotional
So would Jane have been considered a Christian? I’ve never really thought about it before. Sure, they all attended church because that’s another place to see and be seen but were they taught to have a personal relationship with Christ? Now I’m curious.
