I am pleased to be a book reviewer for Bethany House. Each month I am sent a list of books that have recently been released. I choose a book from this list & am provided with a free copy. In return I promise to read the book & give it an honest review.
The book I am reviewing this month is Blessings for the Morning - Prayerful Encouragement to Begin Your Day by Susie Larson. I chose this book because I enjoy good devotionals.
Each reading offers a Bible verse along with Ms. Larson's thought-provoking words. Nothing in this world ... nothing ... means more to me than when someone tells me "I will pray for you." And when someone writes me a letter or an email & includes a prayer for me within it, I feel as if I have received a precious gift. Ms. Larson's words are exactly like receiving that sort of letter or email from a friend. She reminds you of God's love for you ... His mercy & kindness & forgiveness. She blesses & encourages you in Christ.
Each reading is short ... less than 100 words, I'd gather, not counting the Bible verse ... but don't let the brevity fool you. Each reading is meaningful & touches your heart.
I highly recommend this devotional. In fact, I feel it is such a blessing that I am going to purchase one & offer it to one of my followers as a gift. If you would like a chance to receive it, all you have to do is (A) be a follower of my blog as of the publishing of this post, & (B) leave a comment stating you would like to be included in the drawing. US followers only, I'm afraid. The high cost of postage prohibits me from sending the book to another country : ( I will draw a name one week from today, Tuesday, March 31st & will notify you at that time.
