Book Review & Giveaway!

Mornings with JESUS 2012 
by Judy Baer, Gwen Ford Faulkenberry, Tricia Goyner, Sharon Hinck, Keri Wyatt Kent, Erin Keeley Marshall, Camy Tang 

About the Book:

"Be still and know that I am God.” is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible, but it’s not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings with Jesus will help you do just that—“be still” in Jesus’ beautiful and powerful presence. For those who are seeking a deeper experience in their relationship with Christ, Mornings with Jesus offers a fresh perspective of who Jesus is (the Healer, the Son of God, the Comforter, the Good Shepherd) and what that means for day-to-day life. With a warm and friendly voice, 365 short devotional writings on the character and teachings of Jesus encourage readers to greet each day by drawing near to Him and inviting His presence into their day. Spend time with Jesus at the beginning of each day and experience His nearness and peace in a new way throughout the year. Each day’s selection includes: • a Bible verse • an entry based on Jesus: His words, miracles, and parables; His wisdom, compassion, and comfort; His mystery, power, divinity, and humanity • a “faith step” that will inspire and challenge readers to apply the day’s message to their lives

My Review:
I really like this devotional.  On each day, you will find a Scripture reference and a personal reflection from one of seven Christian women authors.  I really enjoyed these stories that they shared because I could relate to them in my own life.  At the end of the devotional, there is a "Faith Step" that helps us to stop and answer how the Lord is working in our life or how we are walking with the Lord.  I really liked doing this step as it helped me to clarify how I could do better in my walk and also showed me how the Lord has been blessing me in my life.  I really liked that I could relate to the stories and see where some of  my struggles are, so are they for other women.  However, I also loved that each devotion showed the way to overcome these struggles is through the Lord.  Now this devotional is not a deep devotional, however, I enjoyed this devotional, definitely got a lot out of it and would recommend it.

  7. I have just received Tricia Goyer's novel Along Wooded Paths. She is the only author I recognize. I would like to have this devotional to read during this leap year because it has 366 devotions and is for 2012.
    I like devotions because they begin a central theme and you can continue your Bible study further on the Scriptures that pertain to the subject on that day for in-depth study. It is a nice jump-start place to begin.

  8. I posted your link over on my FB news page:
    Look over here for a book giveway of this devotional for 2012!

    I see you're also a Tebow fan. I'm from Jax, Fl. land of Tebow and am so proud of him too. I wish there were more athletes out there like him.
