Book Review: Daily Guideposts 2011, 35th Anniversary Edition (Giveaway)

This beautiful hardcover is one devotional that will be on many wish lists this holiday season.

Daily Guideposts 2011 is the 35th Anniversary Edition of this daily devotional from Guideposts, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ministering to and inspiring people around the world.

This year's theme is "Growing in Love." With over 50 writers contributing to this daily devotional, the stories are as diverse as those who penned them, but the overall theme shines through each one.

Within this beautiful collection of stories, Bible verses, and prayers, are special features sprinkled throughout. One of my favorites appears on page 117 for Tuesday, April 12th. Pam Kidd is a pastor's wife. In her special feature titled, "To Say Good-bye", which appears during the middle of each month, she learns how to say good-bye to the people and places she has grown to love. April's lesson is on forgiveness. In the last paragraph she says, "To forgive another is one of the nicest gifts you can ever give yourself."

What a touching way to look at forgiveness. Perhaps it will come a bit easier when we think of it this way.

Daily Guideposts 2011 is a beautiful book that I look forward to reading every night before turning out the light. It would make a lovely gift for you or someone you love.
