A Tidbit Romance by Erin Cross
From Erin’s website, The Chicken Dance Mama:
Erin Coss – A.K.A. The Chicken Dance Mama, is a published author and speaker. She has published works in Revival Nation Magazine, and books, including First Conversations (Bethesda Institute), My Surgery Journal and My Hospital Journal (k2e Books). Erin has also worked on the television series The Directors (Encore) and the television documentary The Genocide Factor (PBS). Her high-energy, down-to-earth style is what drives the Chicken Dance Mama persona. Erin loves having fun relishing in God’s word and shares her insights in her book, A Tidbit Romance – Falling in Love with God’s Word One Devotion at a Time. She resides outside Columbus, Ohio with her husband Eric and their three children.
A Tidbit Romance is a compilation of 60 devotionals penned by Erin Cross. She does not claim to be a writer. Rather, this book grew out of her wanting to minister to some women with one “tidbit” letter. From there, she wrote 59 more and published what she now calls A Tidbit Romance.
Each devotional is no more than four pages. Each devotional drives begins with a passage of Scripture sometimes one verse in length, sometimes four or five or more verses in length. Each “application” section of each devotional contains well-thought out statements drawing core truths upon which to meditate each day.

As I read A Tidbit Romance, I looked for something significant to critique Erin on and really could not find anything of significance. Her devotional is perfect for the busy mom (or dad) wanting to spend a bit more time meditating on the depths and riches of Christ our Savior. The book is aptly named “tidbit” as there is just enough to chew on for the day but not so much that you choke!
