This book was given to us when our first child was born. I appreciate Gary Thomas' perspective in examining how God uses the relationships and challenges of our lives to shape our soul.

I have benefited from each of his books I read and this is no exception. I strongly recommend this devo, and I would also re
I really love all of Gary Thomas' books, and this devotion is no exception. Great insight into everyday parenting, and how we can grow our children (and our family) closer to God.

“Virtue, though often mocked and ridiculed, is as beautiful as wickedness is ugly. Self-denial curiously spawns joyful happiness, while selfishness and arrogance produce desperation and obsession. Being faithful to duty brings great fulfillment, while following unchecked passions eventually leads us to despise ourselves. And the greatest truth of all: There is no higher end, no more glorious life, no better aim, than to live in the fear and favor of Almighty God.” 1 likes
