I have never been a devotional type of girl because they bring so much Armenian thoughts into the reading. I want something to stir me and this, a gift to me, stirs me to study more, pray more and believe! It causes me to pick up my Bible every time I read an entry and look at the scriptural references and that leads to more reading. I gave 9 of these as Christmas gifts to young, beautiful ladies that I love and hope that it will bring them the same peace and hope and stir that I get. IT DOESN'T....CAN'T....and SHOULD NEVER replace God's Word (KJV)
Thank you to all who wrote 1-star reviews. For 2-3 years, I wondered what is wrong with me that I could not "get into" this book and, in fact, got the creeps when I tried to read it. I struggled more because I received gift copies (multiple) from older, more mature Christians who I love and respect very much. I never had peace or contentment that should come from time with God when I read this book (as I have experienced many other times). Thank you for confirming my suspicion that this writing is at best borderline blasphemy and does not honor Jesus or the true Word of God.
