you would love this for sure
Daily Gifts of Grace is a wonderful resource of devotionals from various authors from Women of Faith. I've been a Woman of faith fan, I mean they're really, really had a good sense of humor. Grab this! I really liked what I read, if your looking for something will inspire or something to start your year with... have this book. I would recommend it to anyone but, if you're looking for more substance in regard to living the Christian life. It's a daily devotional full of Godly wisdom. I highly recommended this book.

For daily reminders of God's grace don't miss this
With a delightful, hardcover, ribbon bookmark, and magnetic cover flap, this book of daily devotions for a whole year is sure to delight. Daily Gifts of Grace: devotions for each day of your year is a Women of Faith publication. Written by women, for women, this book provides daily reminders of the amazing gift of God's grace to us. Writers such as Luci Swindoll, Shiela Walsh, Kim Cash Tate, Marilyn Meberg, Patsy Clairmont, and Jenna Lucado offer personal insights into a wide variety of aspects of GodÃ¢ÂÂs grace. Each dated devotion has a focus verse and a brief (one page) comment that will inspire, challenge and encourage the readers on their daily walk of grace. The honesty of the writers is refreshing, and the simple clear presentation of the book makes it easy to read. With a whole yearÃ¢ÂÂs worth of readings I have only sampled a few as I write this review, but I know IÃ¢ÂÂm going to enjoy the daily reminders of GodÃ¢ÂÂs grace throughout the coming school year. It would make a lovely Christmas gift for any lady, old or young, who desires to spend the year living in the grace of God.

Beautiful book and great gift.
This is a daily dip-in kind of a book; I'm not sure what I was expecting but it's certainly much briefer than other bible notes I've used before. One verse, and a page written by one of several different women.
On the plus side, it's a beautiful book. It has a really satisfying magnetic snappetty snap fastening cover; very satisfying. It's very easy to read, and although each entry is dated, there is no sense of progression, meaning that if a few days get missed, you can dip back in wherever you are, rather than feeling obliged to catch up.
On the less positive side; it is very brief. There isn't a sense of continuity between readings, and I have struggled to find the relevance of the writing to the bible verse selected on occasion. It also seems to have been put together without much thought for the dates assigned to each reading; I'm not convinced for example that the suggestion to take a nice picnic out for a gentle walk was best placed in January!
Daily Gifts of Grace hasn't grabbed me as the other books I've reviewed here have. It will be useful; I did find it helpful in hospital when my concentration levels were minimal, and I do find pause for thought in most readings. But it does not have the meat I like to find in a daily devotional. Daily Droplets might be a better title; content worth musing on for a few minutes rather than something to chew on for a full day. I will keep dipping into it; and I can see that I will not be throwing it out at the end of the year. It will stay in my shelves for more five minute moments. But I wouldn't be ordering next year's as a sole set of Bible reading notes. That said, I might give it as a gift to someone I knew didn't have a lot of time, and did want plenty of encouragement.

I love this book!
I am so excited to own this devotion book! I love the way it is presented in a wallet like way. It has a magnetic flap that keeps it safely closed. It also has a ribbon marker.
Each daily devotion is written by a different author from the women of faith group such as:
Joni Eareckson Tada and others.
In the back of the devotion book there is a page of bios on each contributor.
I like that each day a thought that comes from a woman perspective and from daily real life experiences.
I also recommend this book would be a great gift for any woman including new Christians.
