abundantlife 365 Blessings To Begin Your Day by Nancy Guthrie

Book Description:  Ultimately, to be blessed is to have the full, abundant, and ongoing life that only comes from God. The Abundant Life Day Book contains a year’s worth of daily reminders of what it means to live in the abundance of God’s blessing through Christ. When we begin to see how much God has given to us in Christ, and how much he is worth, we realize that all the things we were hoping to get from God—good health, loving relationships, protection from harm, material provision—are only temporary, tangible reminders of and pointers to all we have in Christ. God wants you to enjoy the assurance of his intention to bless you! The Abundant Life Day Book invites you to celebrate God’s blessings day after day.

My Review: I love devotional books!  They are short and to the point but best of all the reader can glean from God's Word!
In, abundantlife 365 Blessings To Begin Your Day by Nancy Guthrie, the reader is blessed each day with a verse, a short and thoughtful devotional and then a final phrase to begin your day or to end your day.
One of my favorite devotionals is on page 141, I Will Heal You.  Such an encouragement!  The verse is taken from Exodus 15:26...I am the Lord that heals you.
This small, hardback book looks plain but it is bursting with love and encouragement.  
Nancy Guthrie does an excellent job of bringing the Scriptures to life with her wonderful devotional thoughts.
This is one of those books that makes a great gift but, even better yet, it makes a wonderful Get Well/Get Better Card.  I enjoy gifting books like this instead of giving flowers or cards that fade away.

About the Author:
Excerpt from Nancy's web page..."Nancy’s life experience has also significantly affected her teaching style. “I’ve had to dig into God’s Word in search of answers to hard questions about God and how he works, and I find that my listeners usually have the same struggles and questions. And while I share openly the deep hurts in my life, I also like to laugh. I often have people who hear me teach say that I'm very real. I hope that's true."
Nancy and her husband, David, and son, Matt, make their home in Nashville, Tennessee where, according to Nancy, life is less about professional pursuits than about the ordinary aspects of being a wife, mother, friend, and follower of Jesus, with clothes to wash, e-mails to answer, and a friend to listen to.  Visit Nancy at:

  1. I liked the sound of this devotional and thought it would be a good one to have on my kindle. I may not go through it daily, but I liked the idea of having a daily devotional with me where ever I take my kindle so if I need encouragement or a word from God while I'm traveling or waiting at an appointment it is available.
