BOOK REVIEW: Daily Gifts of Grace, Devotions for each day of your year Compiled by Sue Ann Jones, Published by Thomas Nelson

This devotional so neatly fit into my morning routine that I procrastinated the publication of this post to enjoy it more.  Daily Gifts of Grace – devotions for each day of your year, was compiled by Sue Ann Jones of a wonderful selection of writings of the Women of Faith speakers and authors.  Lana Bateman, Jenna Lucado Bishop, Patsy Clairmont, Mary Graham, Natalie Grant, Lisa Harper, Barbara Johnson, Carol Kent, Marilyn Meberg, Sandi Patty, Lori Robertson, Luci Swindoll, Kim Tate, Joni Eareckson Tada, Donna VanLiere, Shiela Walsh, and Lisa Whelchel write daily portions of stories, encouragement, and faith-building thoughts to bring your faith into action each day.

The design of the devotional is simple: daily pages, a verse, and the writer’s thoughts.  A pretty vintage floral motif flows through, and the page-marking ribbon keeps my place.  There is no space to include your own thoughts, so this must be an adjunct if you like to write as well.

Given the collective weight of these women’s testimonies, (see resources below), it feels as though a room-full of friends are handing out hugs and cheer for your everyday challenges.

I recommend this devotional happily, and note that my own copy was sent in return for this review, by Thomas Nelson Publishers’ Booksneeze program.  You are welcome to join the reviewers!
