Dutch Sheets’ The Pleasure of His Company


Experience God’s Presence in a Whole New Way

There’s just something about people who are close to God. Through the ups and downs of life, they remain secure, hopeful. If you want a more rewarding spiritual life, if you want the pleasure of knowing your Creator’s heart, this soul-lifting book is for you.

Learn from Dutch Sheets as he shares his life lessons for cultivating an intimate relationship with God. Each of the thirty short chapters reveals a simple practice or biblical mindset that will help draw you away from the noise of life and into the Lord’s peaceful presence.

With profound insights from the Bible and stories you won’t soon forget, The Pleasure of His Company is like a spiritual mentor, showing you simple ways to enjoy God more.

This powerful book can also be enjoyed as a daily devotional.


I don’t usually read or review nonfiction. However, I have read several of Dutch Sheets’ books and I could not pass this one up. In case you are wondering if this is book is for you, here are some things to consider:

Have you ever asked yourself what does it mean to “delight yourself in the Lord’?


What does it mean to “seek ye first the kingdom of God”?

If you’ve ever asked yourself either of those questions, then this is the book for you, because Mr. Sheets explains what that means and what that looks beautifully.

If you’ve ever read any of his books before, than you know that he starts off each chapter with his trademark funny story before getting into the important things. This book will give you something to think about and will linger long in your mind after you finish it. I read this book as a daily devotional and while it didn’t really follow the structure that I usually look for in devotionals, since it is thirty chapters and there are generally around 30 days in a month, it makes for a nice month that focuses on knowing Jesus.

Overall, a very good book with life-changing principles if you apply them.

Monday Musings…At What Point Do you Give Up on an Author?

Have you ever found an author, fell in love, read all their books, but then overtime noticed that their books no longer hold your interest? I have. So how can authors began to lose readers who loved them? This is how:

  1. The author changes their time period. There are a few authors I have read who I really like when they write contemporary, but have a hard time with when they write historical. You would think that it wouldn’t matter considering I love both time periods equally, but I have noticed that sometimes their heroines will stay the same from contemporary times but fail to translate well in historical periods. That said, there are some awesome writers who can do this really well, but there are some who can’t.
  2. Their novels don’t change. There is one author I just really liked. I read every single book she wrote, but then I began to notice patterns. The heroine always reacted the same, I knew the hero was going to do x right in the middle of the book. It was so predictable, I just stopped reading her.
  3. The author has a tendency to place her main characters in some tense positions…all the time. There is this one author, who is fairly famous. And when she writes a good book, it’s amazing. But when she writes a not so good book, it’s usually really not so good (though she still gets five star reviews, so she’s not bad). What makes me hesitant to read her books? I never know what she’s going to put her main characters through and whether or not I want to handle it. She’s not a light read, and I’m not excited to read a book that will make me heavy.

   So, are there any authors that you have given up on (you don’t have to name names!)? If so, why?
