The One Year Book of Encouragement

In today's ever changing world, we find ourselves constantly looking for something to bring us joy or to invoke a feeling of contentment and happiness. Yet far too often we seek that in things that will only do it on a temporary basis and today with our economy being unstable, job losses at an all time high, families losing their homes, retirement funds left depleted, its no wonder why people are seeking something more in this life.

In the One Year Book of Encouragement by Harold Myra, the reader is introduced to your standard devotional listed on a daily basis. However what is unique to this devotion is that each story shared is from an inspirational author, such as Corrie Ten Boom, Billy Graham or even Mother Theresa. These are the people we have come to cherish for their words of encouragement in their own personal storms. This book gathers some of the best and shares them with the reader, along with a short personal prayer and a verse of scripture from the Bible.

I found this book to be encouraging on a different level because these are published stories pertaining to the situations where hope and inspiration is needed to weather the tough times. Besides our faith in God its nice to see personal situations where their authors own personal testimony is shared so the reader can be encouraged.

I received this wonderful devotion compliments of Tyndale House Publishers for my honest review and would rate this one 4.5 out of 5 stars. For more information on this book and where to purchase a copy for yourself or a loved one, please click on the title below:
