A friend of mine gave me this devotional book in 2011. If you get it do not skip the introduction where the author explains how this writing came to be. This year as I go back through it for the 5th time I am journaling daily, one key thought and one verse. The devotions seem to be just what I need most days in one year and have a new meaning the next year depending on what is going on in my life. This past Christmas I gave 4 of these as gifts and already had a very positive reply from a cousin going through cancer treatment. It is written in a style of Jesus talking to me. It is very relevant for the daily struggles of life. Do not skip reading the verses as well. I have written out some of the verses in my book in case I am sitting somewhere in the car and don't have my Bible handy. Wonderful devotion book.
