New Xulon Book is a Practical Devotional for Every Woman

Gerland shares balance of quirky, true tales and Bible verses to tackle each day

MAITLAND, Fla., Dec. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Within the pages of Brenda Gerland's new book, Dancing in the Drought: Finding Joy in His Springs of Living Water ($22.99, paperback, 9781628397635; $9.99, e-book, 9781628397642) readers will enjoy the author's relatable scenarios, as she parallels memorable life experiences with the Word of God. During the creation of this book, the author experienced a drought in the natural (in her home state of Texas). Brenda uses this once-in-a-lifetime occurrence to describe how an actual drought—the second worst in the history of that region—led to a spiritual drought. Following this time, she shares her journey in walking with Jesus daily and allowing His springs of living water to quench her spiritual thirst.


"This book is such a perfect example of how God works in our lives—what He will accomplish His way for His purpose," states the author. "This book journey was for the two of us. He had great plans to grow me and strengthen our relationship. The three years spent in His presence, writing/compiling this book, have been the most exciting of my life."

Brenda Gerland is a native Texan, currently residing on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas. She lives with her husband and enjoys the empty nest and the retired life. She adds, "…Visiting with other women and mentoring 'younger' girls is my passion. I am also a small-group Bible study leader at my church and a first time author. Growing up reading daily devotions, I found that the written words of others were instrumental in my faith walk. I read how God was active and alive, present in the lives of the authors. I felt the Holy Spirit urging me to share the countless 'God-incidences' that have occurred in my life. Who knows? There just might be another woman out there who will find that same hope and encouragement."
