I enjoyed this devotional. The verses and topics that were chosen were ones that felt very applicable to things going on in my life. The author commentary on the topic and verse was straightforward and very clear.
There were easy to apply principles and the length of the devotions were such that I was able to incorporate them into existing Bible study and reading that I was doing. I really liked the way the author set up these readings. The length of each days reading was just enough to get me started and allow me to set my mind on God and apply the lesson to my day. I will most likely use this devotional in the future again. (4 stars)
I received a complimentary copy of this devotional through Book Crash in exchange for an honest review, which I have given.
ABOUT THIS DEVOTIONAL:
Need some encouragement? Who doesn’t, right? So why not get that encouragement while at the same time deepening your faith? The 40-Day Devotional Challenge by bestselling author Kathi Macias is designed to do just that.
With forty undated “bite-sized” readings, each including a Scripture verse and a personal application section, The 40-Day Devotional Challenge…to Encourage Your Heart and Deepen Your Faith is designed in a way that can fit into anyone’s busy schedule—and we all have them. But isn’t it true that the faster we run, the farther behind we seem to get? We all know we need to slow down and re-prioritize, but we just can’t seem to get off that treadmill long enough to do it—until now. Regardless of how long our to-do list, we all have ten minutes we can set aside daily—or even weekly—to reconnect with the things that really matter. Practical, pithy devotions that challenge us spiritually are just the answer. So why not accept The 40-Day Devotional Challenge—either individually or in a group—and let God encourage your heart and deepen your faith? You’ll be so glad you did.
