- How Do You Say Relax? by Becky on 10/19/2016
Although this amazing book is considered a devotional, it is so much more. It is heavy, both literally and figuratively, because there is a lot packed into its pages. The beautiful padded cover has strong pages made of premium paper that are easy to turn, the entire book is very well made. There are sixty-six topics that range from Mary being told by the Angel Gabriel that she would give birth to the Savior, to the subjects of forgiveness, guilt and Jesus' Ascension.
Each chapter contains three areas. The first section has the scripture that will be studied. It is followed by the meditation section which discusses the Bible passage in an interesting, and easy to read way. The final section is a prayer that applies the scripture and discussion to the reader in today's world.
All of the chapters makes good points about the chosen scripture, and is done in a way that will capture your attention. Many of the points made about familiar incidents in the Bible were ones I had never considered before. That made this book very interesting for me, and I think anyone reading it would have the same experience.
Each topic will make you think, and the words will give you peace. Because this is such a pretty book to look at, with such insight between its pages, it would make a lovely gift. I highly recommend this five-plus star book to anyone wanting a closer look at the Bible, or to get new insights into the heart of God. You will be blessed by it.

- great devotional! by Mark on 10/2/2016
This is not a 365-day devotional, but one that covers around two months. If I counted correctly, there are 66 devotionals in the book. It is a 446 page book, so these are not short devotionals. Most of them go 6-8 pages.
The devotional is completely centered around Jesus' ministry here on earth that is found in the Gospels. They each start out with Scripture, followed by the actual devotional part - the meditation, and ending with a prayer.
To me, this seems like a daunting task to write so many devotionals all focusing on moments in Jesus' life, but the author does it well. These aren't light and fluffy devotionals, but have depth to them and are not something you can read over fast, but instead it takes some time to read these. They are very well done, interesting, and well thought out and researched. I have read the Gospels and different portions countless times in my life, but Gire brought out some new thoughts that helped me see things in a different light.
The only downside I can see in this book, is the length of the devotions. I don't always have time in the morning to read much, and these are much longer than the typical 365 day devotionals I read.... but that is a small downside. It just proves my point that there is so much more in these devotionals since they are longer.
The book is an attractive hardcover book that would not only make a great devotional for the buyer, but it would also make a great gift.
This book was given to me in exchange for my honest review.
