Book Review: Daily Guideposts 2011
Daily Guideposts 2011
English, 432 pgs.
America's favorite devotional, now in its 35th year with more than 20 million copies sold, Daily Guideposts is a trusted companion, helping readers to live and grow their faith every day. Every year since 1977, Guideposts has published Daily Guideposts, a devotional guide containing short inspirational pieces to be read each day of the year. They are designed to bring readers closer to God and their faith by helping them to live fuller, richer lives. Each piece offers a personal perspective on faith, love, inspiration, and understanding. With this year's theme of 'Growing in Love,' Daily Guideposts is tapping into a subject that is a key to spiritual growth. Each Daily Guideposts devotional includes: a short Scripture verse for reflection; a true, first-person anecdote that shares the ways God speaks through ordinary life events; a brief prayer to put the day's message to work in each reader's life. By taking a few minutes each day for reflection, Daily Guideposts readers will become more aware of the spiritual richness in their lives.
I have the Guideposts daily calendar which I read every day and I was really excited to get to review and promote the 2011 book. I started out reading one or two for each month, then I thought "I'll read the ones for all our birthdays" then I started randomly picking pages...at which point I realized that I needed to stop or I'd have the whole thing read before this year was even over! I'm looking forward to this as a daily morning devotion in the next year.
I received a promotional copy of the book in exchange for a review. No additional compensation has been received and I was not required to write a positive review. Thank you to Shelby at Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists for allowing me to be part of this review campaign.
