Book Blurb: “Be still and know that I am God.” is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible, but it’s not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings with Jesus will help you do just that—“be still” in Jesus’ beautiful and powerful presence. For those who are seeking a deeper experience in their relationship with Christ, Mornings with Jesus offers a fresh perspective of who Jesus is (the Healer, the Son of God, the Comforter, the Good Shepherd) and what that means for day-to-day life. With a warm and friendly voice, 365 short devotional writings on the character and teachings of Jesus encourage readers to greet each day by drawing near to Him and inviting His presence into their day. Spend time with Jesus at the beginning of each day and experience His nearness and peace in a new way throughout the year. Each day’s selection includes: • a Bible verse • an entry based on Jesus: His words, miracles, and parables; His wisdom, compassion, and comfort; His mystery, power, divinity, and humanity • a “faith step” that will inspire and challenge readers to apply the day’s message to their lives.

REVIEW: Mornings with Jesus


Daily Encouragement for your soul

366 Devotionals

Book Blurb: “Be still and know that I am God.” is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible, but it’s not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings with Jesus will help you do just that—“be still” in Jesus’ beautiful and powerful presence. For those who are seeking a deeper experience in their relationship with Christ, Mornings with Jesus offers a fresh perspective of who Jesus is (the Healer, the Son of God, the Comforter, the Good Shepherd) and what that means for day-to-day life. With a warm and friendly voice, 365 short devotional writings on the character and teachings of Jesus encourage readers to greet each day by drawing near to Him and inviting His presence into their day.

Review: I’ve really enjoyed this devotional book for a couple of reasons. First it’s a compilation of writers whose books I’ve read. I’ve enjoyed their Christian Fiction books very much.

Each devotional starts out with a scripture passage. A storm, funny event, or thought from the authors’ life that brings home the message of the scripture and how they saw it in their life or someone else’s life or situation they encountered.
At the end of the message there is a Faith Step – it’s a little something the reader can do to take a step closer in their journey with Jesus. It helps the reader make the journey personal and real.

I’ve enjoyed getting to know the heart of these authors and at the same time the devotion hits at the heart of scripture and has been what I needed to start my day focusing on Jesus and the word. I was pleasantly surprised at how much each author packed into a one page devotion. Wow! It’s encouraging, honest, thoughtful and real. I love it. I’m thankful for the review copy of this book. I highly recommend it.
