The pictures are bright and colorful and then the words are printed "on top" of the pictures.
This is not a sit down and read it type of book. It's more of a short.put.your.mind.to.rest type of book. It's relaxing book.
There are prayers, scriptures and short/very short devotionals. It's not a deep book and therefore, it makes for a great before I go to sleep read.
I love all the pictures but one of my faves is on page 111. There is a beautiful picture of a sunset with a long walk out to a lake. It is entitled, Purpose in Every Step.
This is a great encouraging "read."
I'm going to give this book as a get well card to those who need encouragement when they are ill.
It would also make a great gift!

This book is the perfect size to sit on my night stand or to tuck away in my purse. It is of great quality and feels "solid" in my hands.
Susie combines the truths of Scripture on the left page and her blessings on the right. Each of these are pasted upon beautiful backdrops of pictures of creation which are very refreshing to behold. She has a way of playing with words to create passages full of encouragement and strength. As God is known to do, each passage seems to be just what I need.
The book is priced so well. It is definitely affordable to give as a gift.
Love this book!!
What an awesome way to spend a few moments and quiet your soul before bedtime (as well as other times). I first became aware of the author, Susie Larson, when I found her site on Facebook and still visit her page often.
When her book, came up as a choice to read for review, I was quick to snap it up. It didn't disappoint. I plan on "gifting" this to a friend, who I know will enjoy it as much as I did. I plan on remembering this book for Christmas, Birthdays and other special days of friends and family.
I received a free copy of this novel from Bethany House Publishers as part of their book review program, and I am under no obligation to write a positive review.
Each night's reading in the book has one scripture reading on the first page and one blessing that corresponds to that scripture. The words are printed over gorgeous nature photography. There is an index in the front, which is nice for finding particular words of encouragement. Titles range from "A Thankful Heart" and "Let God Carry the Load" to "Christ in Focus." There are also a few season-specific blessings at the end of the book for Thanksgiving, Christmas, grieving, etc.
I really enjoyed this book. It is a soothing and empowering read. It would be a lovely gift, too. I highly recommend this book.
I received this book from Bethany House for the purpose of writing a review, but all opinions are my own.
I received this book for free from Bethany House Books.
