I don't normally read a devotional before I read the accompanying book, but this book looked like a good read so I thought I'd give it a try. I wasn't disappointed!
What I liked best about this devotional was that Lysa spoke from experience. Her honest trial and error, and how she had to learn to let God take care of the things she couldn't control. There are 60 daily devotionals in all. Each one with a story of personal experience, a key Bible verse and a prayer. The devotionals ranged in size from 2 to 4 pages...perfect for those busy moms on the go, but I still felt like I was learning something. The size of the book was fairly small also, so very easy to tuck in my purse or diaper bag!
I did not take the 60 days to read through it, but you can bet I will be revisiting these pages often.
Lysa offers Biblically sound advice on dealing with conflict, trusting in God when we are fearful, being honest about our issues and so much more. I found myself relating to her writing on so many levels.
My only complaint about the devotional is that I wish it contained more Bible studying for each day. Some of the lessons did provide additional Bible verses to study, but a majority of them were only the initial key verse.
I would rate this as 4 stars.
