New Book Announced: Nature Reflections by Patty Mondore

North Wind Publishing releases the second book in its Outdoor Devotional Series
by Patty Mondore
Nature Reflections:
A 90-Day Devotional and Journal for People Who Love Nature

North Wind Publishing (Belfast, Maine) publishes a pre-release edition of Patty Mondore’s newest book, Nature Reflections: A 90-Day Devotional and Journal for People Who Love Nature to the Thousand Islands area. Nature Reflections is the second book in a series of devotionals that North Wind will be publishing written by Patty Mondore for those who love nature and the outdoors.  It follows last summer’s release of River Reflections.

Written from her favorite waterfront location in the beautiful Thousand Islands in Northern New York, Nature Reflections will delight anyone who loves nature and the One who created it.  As explained by North Wind’s founder, Janet Robbins, “Nature Reflections is the second book in a series of devotionals for people who love the outdoors.  As a person who loves the outdoors, I could relate to each story in some way, having had similar experiences while I was enjoying nature. Experiencing a beautiful vista overlooking water, gazing up at mountains, or looking closely at the details of a flower or insect brings one closer to God as we admire His handiwork.  Nature Reflections is a 90-day Devotional and Journal to help you with your bible study and meditations. Each day starts with a beautiful black and white river photo and bible verse. The Trek steers you toward portions of the bible you should read that day while Nature Reflections are the author’s personal experiences enjoying nature and where she relates that experience to biblical teachings. Nature’s Journal is an area for the reader to write down personal thoughts for the day, so this book becomes a keepsake journal. May God bless you and yours.” - JANET ROBBINS, Publisher

Patty’s other books include River-Lations, A Good Paddling, Proclaim His Praise in the Islands, To Love, Honor and OH BOY, and Perennial Faith.  Patty’s column, River-Lations, which appears in the Thousand Islands Sun Vacationer throughout the summer months features inspirational stories and photos of the Thousand Islands.  Patty and her husband Bob are also well known in the Thousand Islands area for their Singer Castle books (Singer Castle and Singer Castle Revisited from Arcadia’s Images of America Series), documentary DVD, and Singer Castle blog ( They have also produced several Thousand Islands music videos.
