Book Review: Lord I Give You This Day by Kay Arthur

I first want to say that this my first official book review (I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review). It is kind of exciting but even more joyful because this is actually a book I would buy....

Lord I Give You This Day
By: Kay Arthur

This book is pretty awesome, allow me to explain: First, the set up of this book is so easy to follow that a 5th grader could read this & take in all it has to offer. It uses the "daily" reading type of layout. Each day is a page, simple right? It's not so overwhelming that you can't keep up with a little daily devotional but yet does offer some healthy spiritual nourishment. Second, it is a great addition to any Christian's tools for spiritual guidance & praise to the lord. Each page has a little "words for the wise" I'd as call it, just an excerpt of how you can relate a bible verse(s) to today. Each one is motivational and uplifting. The end of each page includes a little special prayer for that day. Example:

"When the Day's challenges seem overwhelming, when life doesn't go according to our plan, it bring such a comfort to remember that the birthright of every child of God is grace - grace that saves and sustains, grace that will keep us and bring us joy."   

That is the beginning of today's page, Feb. 10th. Isn't that just an amazing way to start or end your day's journey? Sometimes we know the day will be hard or maybe the day is over and boy a long day it was. We all need to be reminded of God's love and faithfulness to us. That he sacrificed his life for us and encourages us through all things to stay strong & carry on. 
I have not read any other Kay Arthur books but I'm seriously thinking I should because this one was stellar. If you'd like to know a little more about Miss Arthur, check out her bio here. If you are moved to purchase this book, check it out  here or if you have a kindle/amazon prime account check it out here. If you aren't convinced this book is awesome and want to check out a few pages, please go here and view it for yourself! I also think this would make a great gift to any christian or God believing person. I urge anyone to take a look and maybe you'll love it as much as I do!
