Little Mercies is a collection of inspiring true stories that the author has experienced throughout her lifetime. This book could almost be used as a daily devotional except that there aren’t 365 stories, just 16. Each story has its own inspiration that the author then relates to stories that are in the Bible and verses that uplift and encourage. Four of those stories stood out for me.

Night Music tells about a friend that moved far away. The friend missed the sounds of the south and asked the au

I received Little Mercies:Celebrating God's Everyday Grace and Goodness by Lynn Coulter as a First Reads Book Giveaway recently. I am very happy that I got this book. It came at just the right time for me--reminding me to appreciate the everyday events and people i spend time with.

It is very inspirational...cheery...hopeful...Sharing how we can see God's hand in our everyday life.

I highly recommend this book. I have enjoyed reading it,, a little each day, so much!

In LITTLE MERCIES, Ms. Coulter answers that we can be gla

This was a really enjoyable read. Coulter's writing style is very conversational. I felt as if she were talking with me over a cup of coffee on opposite ends of a cozy couch.

I really appreciated the reminders about how God's goodness can be found in the seemingly insignificant instances of our every day lives. If you look hard enough, there are things to marvel over everywhere, whether it be a school that teaches you to make, grow and create things with your own two hands, or a group of voluntee
