A special thank you to Faith Words Center Street and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

“Words are powerful. With one word, God can change our lives and we can help change the course of someone’s day. Within one word, we can find encouragement and hope.”

Joyce Meyer, one of my favorites, one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers. A New York Times bestselling author, Joyce’s books have helped millions of people find hope and restoration through Jesus Christ. Each and everyone has a powerful and positive message.

WAKE UP TO THE WORD 365 Devotions to Inspire You Each Dayis a beautiful inspiring book to empower you! A book to treasure and a great addition to any library devotional collection.

A small book with a big message. A perfect size with a positive message to start each day. For those with busy lifestyles, starting from Jan 1-Dec 31, each day features a scripture, one word, and a message. At the end of each passage is a summary or affirmation with a positive thought-provoking takeaway.

An ideal gift for the upcoming holiday season. What better way to begin the new year or your spiritual journey. No matter who or where you are in your faith or journey, or your personal relationship with God.

From sins, mistakes, failures, or your path in life; you can discover a way of living, that will truly satisfy your soul. God has a plan for each of us. Whether you need a fresh start, or a renewed relationship. Each of us could use a positive word to help us navigate the negatives throughout the day.

Each word is powerful and I love waking up with a fresh new message each day. Whether you prefer your devotional time in the mornings or the evenings, each message will renew your spirit. One word for each day of the year, a definition of that word, a Bible verse and a Bible-based encouragement.

If you are looking for a quick word of encouragement, thought for the day, or something to think about, focus, or meditate during the day, it will assure a blessing.

A small, yet powerful book. The beautiful cover will draw you in and the soothing words will capture your heart. Share it with others! You will look forward to rising each morning, with a new special message awaiting you every morning. Like a special Christmas gift, all year long.

 

The daily devotional includes:
Powerful words to focus on each day
Scriptures and practical advice from Joyce for each word
Encouragement to read and pray every day

My favorite: July 14 "Risk":

"It has been decided by us . . . to select men and send them to you with out beloved Barnabas and Paul, men who have risked their lives for the name of our Lord Jesus Christ." Act 15:25-26

"I believe we should live our lives with an enormous spirit of adventure and risk. We only get one trip through life, and I don't want to be old and have nothing but regrets.

We face the struggle between faith and fear. Don't give int to fear of the unknown or of being adventurous-move past it and follow what God places on your heart to do. There will always be critics who tell us our faith is too risky but don't let them cause you to live a small, boring life. you can fully live today by not giving in to fear or by worrying about tomorrow.

If you step up to the plate, you might strike out, but if you don't try, you will never know the joy of hitting a home run!"

Risk: To venture: to dare to undertake.

Flower Face: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Blodeuwedd
Flower Face: A Devotional Anthology in H... Flower Face: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Blodeuwedd - Ninth Wave Press,Jhenah Telyndru Excellent compilation of a variety of work on the Celtic goddess figure. Historical scholarly articles, re-tellings, poems, a book review on a related fiction book, poems, songs (with music), there's a little bit of everything. I've had a very hard time finding more than a paragraph or two on Blodeuwedd so I was delighted with this little gem and it answered a lot of the questions I had about her and her story. I really should probably go read The Mabinogion for myself, but it's one of those books that I've meant to read forever and never seem to get around to reading.

Review: The Berenstain Bears Bedtime Devotional
The Berenstain Bears Bedtime Devotional: Includes 90 Devotions (Berenstain Bears/Living Lights) - Mike Berenstain

The Berenstain Bears Bedtime Devotional is a good book for young readers. It appears a collection from different Titles of the Berenstain Bears. It got a Christian theme throughout the book. It is a good one for young children.

 

If parents want to settle down their children this would be good for them to listen to. Children can learn to read through this book as well. You can read any story that you feel is best for you and your children if you want to.

 

Each story has a life lesson for children to learn and listen to. It is good for family gatherings.

Wake Up To The Word by Joyce Meyer
Wake Up to the Word: 365 Devotions to Inspire You Each Day - Joyce Meyer
An empowering word each day.
Every day you get a new word. You learn it's meaning, even if you think you may know it already. Then you are given a vignette  of sorts, connecting that word to the Bible. Making you think and evaluate your own thoughts, values and opinions. Finishing it off with a piece of God's word. 
Sounds like the perfect way to start every morning that I am blessed to have.
Joyce Meyer's books, even devotionals, always have me questioning myself. You can never be too sure that you know everything, and must always be open to learning. Especially about yourself. Evaluating your moral compass from time to time helps you keep on the right path. I find her devotionals help me do that. I am sure most of you will too.

REVIEW: The Cheesehead Devotional
The Cheesehead Devotional: Daily Meditations for Green Bay Packers, Their Fans, and NFL Football Fanatics - Judy DuCharme

I am a huge Packers fan and enjoy reading devotionals, so when I was asked if I would be interested in this blog tour, I went ahead and said yes.

 

I usually like to read one devotional a day so that I have time to think on the subject matter and work to add that into my life, but this was a last minute thing and I sat down to read it in one sitting.

 

The book is a light read, but has some substantial information in it. Each chapter is short (two to three pages), beginning with a story about the Packers, and then adding information on the subject in an easy to read manner, helping you to take a look at your life and live in a way that God would want you to.

 

I like how the author incorporated the stories into the subject and how she explained each thing in a way that is easy to understand, plus the fact that each chapter ends with a small prayer.

 

Throughout the book, though, I wondered how the two go together. Yes, Reggie White - as well as the rest of the Packers - have always been religious, but it seemed like an odd thing to mix together, football and prayer. As I continued reading, though, I was reminded of just how much, when I was growing up, the two were combined, and was glad to see that prayer had not been forgotten in football.

 

It was a good book, one I plan to go back and take a look at as I make some of these a part of my life.

 

Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.
