My Review Of Just Like Jesus Devotional: A Thirty-Day Walk with the Savior By Max Lucado

Overview:

What does it mean to be "Just like Jesus?" This personal month-long journey with the Savior offers Scripture, practical devotions and application sessions to pattern one's life after Christ.
Starting at day one, readers meet the Savior and find their way of thinking challenged. Who is this Nazarene? Who is the Son of God? How can we become more like Him? How can I reflect His grace and goodness to others?

As readers begin to think more like Christ, they are challenged to put words into action as the journey escalates into a full force, radical retracing and renewal of what it means to be a follower of Christ.

Just Like Jesus, The Devotional is daily encouragement and instruction for becoming a "do-er" as well as a follower of Christ.

My Take On This Book:

I being a Max Lucado fan absolutely love this devotional. I have

Why I Needed To Read This Book - Grieving God's Way By Margaret Brownley

Grieving God’s Way by Margaret Brownley hit home with me, I wish this book had been around 40 some years ago when tragedy struck my family. I was in a puddle of quicksand, that is the only way I can explain the grief I was drowning in for all these years.

I had a brother shoot himself while I was home, and not even a week later after his funeral my step brother hung himself while in the army. I was only 14 years old at the time, and in a world of my own with no help from anyone. My mother drank through her grief my dad just worked all of the time. I had no one to help me out of this black hole I felt like I was in.

Brownley covers everything in this book that I felt and that I went through. I would recommend this book to anyone who has never dealt with their grief or who are grieving. Though I don’t know even for myself at the time I was grieving that I would have been thinking about picking up a book about grief. But I do know after all of these years I have never really dealt head on with my grief and all of those ugly feelings, and I am so thankful I had the chance to read and review this book about grief and God.

I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers (booksneeze.com) as part of their book review bloggers program. I was asked to post an honest opinion in my own words.

Thank you for stopping by!

From Blah To Awe: Shaking Up A Boring Faith By Jenna Lucado Bishop

Bishop is trying to reach young girls with her writing about how our faith can sometimes get boring, and it does sometimes, but allot of people will not admit to that. I know it does for me, my walk in faith and church life, and yes I suppose I would say God can get boring if I let it, I choose to stay in an “awe way” most of the time, but everybody has those “blah” moments.

But there are ways to change this and Bishop is sharing her own story of her own faith walk when church, God and life just got plain boring.
