Book Review : Mornings With Jesus

Who does not want to start their day off on the right foot?  I would venture to say we all do.  However, no matter how much we want to start the day right, sometimes we struggle to figure out how to make that work.   The book Mornings With Jesus is a tool that will help us all start each day of 2012 off on the right foot.


I have seen many devotion books, used many.   What makes this book different from the others?  First, the contributors are a cast of current Christian Authors including Tricia Goyer.  I also really like that each devotion takes about 5 minutes to read through, who does not have five minutes to offer up in the morning?  Lastly, each devotion starts with a verse of scripture related to the topic of the day’s devotion and ends with a through provoking “Faith Step.”  I loved both!


In a perfect world we all grab a cup of hot coffee, wander to our table, comfy chair, or by the toasty fire and have a wonderful quiet time of prayer, study and reading.  Reality, we are lucky to grab 5-10 minutes each morning before the world hits!  My world : 4 little people descending upon the kitchen.  Hard to have a perfect/idyllic quiet time at this point in my life.  But I can find 5 minutes to connect, to be encouraged and inspired.  This book works for me – because even on the days I get up early enough to have a decent amount of time alone, this book is still part of my quiet time – it still inspires me, still offers some encouragement and still is truth; but on the mornings I am running and cannot catch much of a breath I have time for these great devotions!

I highly recommend this great devotion book to women in all walks of life – no kids, little ones, or an empty nest – it will bless you no matter what!

And, guess what?  I have a copy of this great book to share with you!  I will be sending out a brand new copy of this great book to a lucky reader – so leave a comment below and tell me why this book would be a perfect tool for your quiet time, and you may get to find out why I am loving my copy!!

NOTE : I received this book at no cost, in exchange for an honest interview, from LitFuse.

  1. I have just received Tricia Goyer's novel Along Wooded Paths. She is the only author I recognize. I would like to have this devotional to read during this leap year because it has 366 devotions and is for 2012.
    I like devotions because they begin a central theme and you can continue your Bible study further on the Scriptures that pertain to the subject on that day for in-depth study. It is a nice jump-start place to begin.
