Reflections for Ragamuffins is definitely one of those devotional books that I will keep. It will have a place on the shelf right next to My Utmost For His Highest, one that I return to ever four or five years.

Brennan Manning was a broken person. And he knew it. That's what made his writings on grace so poignant and effective. Day after day, I was amazed at the fresh insight this devotional book brought to my life. My favorite thing, though, about this book, is that the entire month of December

Although some of the devotionals in this book are really short, they pack a punch. Manning had a lot of good things to say in his life, and he put many of them in this book. I read it through in 2014 and was inspired and encouraged many days, and often convicted by what I read. I highly recommend it.

A pithy meditation that hits my soul. A great gift for a friend and one worth passing on. I'm sure it will come back around another year if you share your year-long daily devotionals with friends~

One of the best devotionals I have ever used. Each day I can't wait to read (sometimes I will read tomorrows, its that good.
Continuing into 2014 with this daily reading of excellent reflections on various short segments collected from Brennan Manning's writings. Great index closes out the book for further references.

Liann gave this to me several years ago. Whenever I pick it up again, I am amazed at how honest and pithy Manning is. Great for a gal who is short on her ability to be both meaningful AND brief.
