My Review

I really enjoyed this devotional !  It is just the right size and time needed to give you a fast read and a really indepth look at life in story form.  I am very fond of many of the authors and have enjoyed their stories in the past.  I think this made it more enjoyable for me.

Each Story made things so real to me and hit home in a real sense.  This is a sweet book and would make a wonderful gift for a book lover, new mom or a friend !  Even for a young lady who is in need of learning some of life’s lessons.

Depending on your reading speed each story might take you 5 to 10 mins and I think that is great for a homeschooling mom like myself or a new wife or mothers who is busy.

I know that you would just love this Devotional !

Guest Post from Kathy Ide

I’ve always loved Christian fiction, and I’ve seen the power of fiction to touch hearts and change lives, both firsthand and hearing about the experiences of others. But you know, in my quiet times with the Lord, reading a chapter from a novel just doesn’t seem quite appropriate. So a devotional with short fiction stories seemed like a great solution. And you can take these purse-sized devotionals wherever you go, to read when you have a few minutes of down time. It’s a great way to get “inspiration on the go.” And they make fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones.

Wake Up Smiling 40 Devotions for a Hope-Filled Life by Audrey Meisner

cover105768-medium

Before you open your eyes or say a word each morning, a few precious moments have the potential to place you on the pathway of peace and hope. Make these seconds count. They are more important than you can even imagine!

In Wake Up Smiling, Audrey shares her very personal journey of taking three simple Bible verses and believing them in a way that some may say is outrageous. Living heaven on earth has become very real for her, and every morning she wakes up with hope. If you’re ready to live, dream, and experience freedom from worry and fear, Jesus really is as close as the mention of His name. He’s waiting to share His secrets with those who will abandon all and say, “I am ready.”

God has a recipe for hope for you. It is practical, it will turn your life around, and it starts as you wake up.

My Review

This book is filled with 40 relatively short devotional readings to give you a smile as you start your day ! I would say that each may take 5 to 15 minutes to read and give insight into how to apply the lesson learned to your life.  It is a very good way to get to know the Lord better and what he wants for our lives.  It is an enjoyable thing to do each day and a great way to start your day with the Lord.     I really am enjoying this devotional  and It would make a nice gift for giving to a friend or a friend shut in !

My Review

I really like this Devotional ! It is short and just the right thing to start the day with if your a busy mom. It could also be read to daughters by the mom as a short devotion of God’s Love to share with them as they move into womanhood.  Being  a homeschool mom it is important to me to spend a few minutes with the Lord and this gave me a few minutes if I get up and children are already up. It brings peace and joy to my heart in a few short moments and that is what I needed lately to inspire me.

Sweet Child of Mine by Jennifer Flanders

13178565_10154207822208147_4672530749361695266_n

What a blessing this Devotional Journal is ! To be honest I wish there had been such things when I was having my own children.  I truly love the pictures in here that you will enjoy for years to come and I know this would really be a wonderful gift to many. A book sure to touch the heart of any mom !

A Devotional Journal for Moms by Jennifer Flanders Isn’t this book so sweet,
there is so much wisdom in here for a new Mamma and for the next generation
to read later in the future !

I just love the way Jennifer has thought of each little area to be filled in by a loving
mother, while she is caring for her children and adding each things caring so that
her child can have these memories to cherish. From before this child was even conceived
until later in life.

This journal is filled with Bible verses on mothers babies and love, that will bring God’s
Word to life to the family. Information to pray for that child before birth and as a child and
as a teen ! Each thing that is included in this Devotional Journal has been added with much
thought given to details.

This would make a very special gift for the New Mom to Be or for a Mom who has children to fill
in for each child. You may want to get one for each baby you have had. Great Baby Shower
present for the expectant christian couple to write down their thoughts as they travel this journey
of pregnancy and birth and training up of their child.

I am sure you will totally enjoy this book and see that it is indeed a true blessing.

I was given this book via the publisher/Author and I recieved this book by applying
through BookCrash , it was given freely for my honest review.

How Do I Love Thee by Jennifer Flanders

13221526_10154207959013147_6929445791576227097_n

I must say I was very excited to be chosen to do this review , as I had often admired Mrs. Flanders website. Her website is educational and informative for the godly christian woman seeking to be a blessing to her family. She truly exemplifies what it means to be a crown to her husband, a godly wife and mother.  In the days we live in I find her life to be refreshing and encouraging to me and I am sure it is to many others as well.  This devotional is a wonderful testimony to her desire to share godly womanhood with younger women and in so doing bring honor to the Lord Jesus Christ !

It is not often that you find a woman who will boldly stand for what is biblical and right in today’s society.  I am happy and blessed to call Jennifer, not only my friend but my sister in the Lord !

My First Impression is what a lovely gift for a Bride to be !
Add some pens, markers or colored pencils and they make a
wonderful gift and a personal addition to your families heritage !
One can color and make them very personal artwork for years
to come in the family !!! Very Nice !!!

As on her blog Jennifer has poured her heart and belief into
these Journals. Each page is filled with wisdom and thoughtfulness
that a young or older wife can fill with love to share with her family
in later years. A true Heritage in how their family began and the times
shared between a husband and wife as they grow together in Grace !

I would very highly recommend this as a bridal shower gift , a wedding
gift or a gift for a young ladies hope chest on a special birthday perhaps.
Also a special anniversary gift for a lady friend would be nice. There is just so
very much included. A place to share before married life through each learning
experience in ones marriage.

What a blessing to future generations of women in godly families !
A Lasting Treasure !

As you can see these pages make for a great devotional, a study and one could easily color in the pictures to make them a work of art !

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and author for my
honest and unbiased review. I applied for this review through BookCrash.
