Perfect for : Personal Use, Great gift

In a nutshell: This is a wonderful book for daily use, that helps to start the day on a positive/inspiring note with biblical inspiration. It is small, about 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide and about 1 inch thick - it will fit great in a purse, glove box, desk drawer, etc, just put it somewhere so you can read it every morning. There is an inspirational thought and bible verse for each day of the year, and each one takes only a minute or two to read, but will h

A great easy way to start each day. No matter what religion his message of positive thinking is always relevant and true.

I bought this little book a few years ago and enjoyed the thoughts for the day each page contained. I started reading it again this year. It was just a nice way to start each day.

I have several books just like this one, and I love them all!! It's so nice to read these each day. There's one page dedicated to each day of the year. I have plenty of time to do my thing in the mornings but I know some of you are on a tight schedule each day and don't have time to spare. This book is perfectly suited for you, in that if need be, the day's excerpt can be read very quickly and you can move on if you don't have the time to sit and ponder what you've just read, sort through your t ...more

I have read a page a day just as the book is laid out and I have found it to be a fine way to begin the day. Each several pages have a theme - forgiveness, visualizing something better for your life, gratefulness, etc. I find myself thinking about something I read earlier and I like that the book has made me focus on different aspects of my life and hopefully be a better, more thoughtful person. The book has helped me put certain things in perspective and made me think about things and has made ...more

A beautiful little book. Each day starts with a scripture and short essay or thought to reflect upon. The emphasis is positive thinking, not dwelling on the mistakes of yesterday, and allowing God to touch and inspire your life.

Terrific as a stand-alone devotional book, or as an addition to your daily scripture reading. It's the perfect size to stash in your purse if you want something uplifting to read while you're waiting in line somewhere.

This is a good book don't get me wrong...there is nothing wrong with positive words, but there are days when you are going through a rough time and you want to hear more than the simple words, "Don't give up faith, "Be happy", etc. These devotionals were super short, and I like a little more to read where it gets me thinking afterwards, and lifts you up more spiritually.

What a great read to start your day. Very inspiring and will get your day going in the right direction. This is a great book for those who "don't have time to read." All you need is a few minutes everyday.

A wonderful way to start the morning: A cup of coffee and a message of empowerment, love, and forgiveness to take me through the day. This is my first experience with Joel Osteen and it's a nice introduction to his ministry.

This is an attractive devotional book but it seems as dedicated to the power of positive thinking as to God.
