    I was so so so excited to receive this devotional. I am a huge fan of the Proverbs 31 team and I just adore Lysa TerKeurst. I could not WAIT to dive into this devotional the day I received it. Isn't it so exciting y'all when you're so excited and the book doesn't disappoint you?

    Each days devotional includes a quick and easy read each day, with a few verses to meditate on, a brief commentary from the author, a reflection question or two, and a call to respond in some way. The devotions were short enough that even the busiest of mamas could fit it into her schedule. It is written in such a way that you can relate to every single devotional. There is a nugget that you can take away from each one and that is powerful.

    This would make for a great gift for a friend or a sweet treat for yourself. I think this is one your going to love!

    This book was provided to me free of charge by booksneeze.com in return for my honest review. The opinions i have expressed are my own.

    In general, I tend to stray away from "devotionals". Time and time again, I've found that it's God's word that proves to be the most powerful book that motivates, encourages, exhorts, and spurs me on. When I am weary, His promises give me hope. When I am tired, His word reminds me that He will uphold me.

    I enjoyed the Encouragement for Today devotional from the Proverbs 31 Team. Each page was not too long and began with a verse or two. The devotional felt person and very relatable. Even the titles would catch my eye, for example, "Do I have Father Issues?" or "When My Mean Girl Wants to Come Out." I especially appreciated that section at the end of each devotional to Remember, Reflect, and Respond - because it did give me tangible things to consider as I read through. I also liked the Power Verses at the end relating to the topic of each devotional.

    Although the devotional was a nice one, I would have liked the Power Verses to be written out - so I could readily read them, but it was an impetus to look up the references in my Bible. In the section, Respond - it would have been nice to have a response and an assignment to dig deeper in the word considering the topic of the devotional.

    Otherwise, this was a nice devotional to go through in the mornings or evenings to set my mind on the right things each day.

    I've subscribed to the Proverbs 31 ministry's daily e-mailed devotionals, so I was already familiar with the style when I agreed to review the book version, Encouragement for Today. A compilation of devotionals from a variety of writers affiliated with the Proverbs 31 ministry, the book is definitely geared toward women (no great surprise considering the name of the ministry itself).

    Like most devotional books that I've read before, this one provides a quick and easy read each day, with a few verses to meditate on, a brief commentary from the author, a reflection question or two, and a call to respond in some way. I have to say that I was pretty lukewarm about this one; I've had other devotional books that spoke to me a lot more than this one. It's by no means a deep book, and I found myself wishing for something with just a little more meat to it.

    Encouragement for Today by Renee Swope, Lysa TerKeurst, Smantha Evilsizer and the Proverbs 31 team offers daily devotions for women.

    What I liked most about the book was the personal stories it contained from each of the authors' lives. Each daily devotion includes that plus scripture, and actions to respond, reflect and remember.

    The daily devotions touch upon topics such as forgiveness, control, power, and death. The selection I enjoyed the most was the one about worry. I could be a professional worrier. I'm not sure if it's because of my upbringing, personality, being a mom, or something just in my nature, but this was a big one for me.

    I also liked that this book is an undated devotional. So many daily devotionals are dated and it makes the reader feel as if she must start on daily devotionals on January 1st or else not even bother.

    Disclaimer: I received a complimentary advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for completing a review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinion here is mine. I did not receive any other compensation.

    Written by the Proverbs 31 Team, this book of 100 quick devotionals seeks to encourage women today, no matter their place in life. The variety of these devotionals spans from friendships, peace, loneliness, confession, and so much more. Each selection is about 2 pages long, perfect for a quick minute in the morning, or whenever you can find a moment or two of quiet. Additionally, you'll find an appendix of the Lord's names, a reference for each, and their meanings.

    While I'm not typically fond of devotionals in this format, I found that I quite enjoyed this one. The selections were honest, true to life, and deep. And while some devotionals leave you wondering how to implement the lesson in your own life, this book includes a remember, reflect, respond, and power verse for each selection. And because of the shortened format, it's an easy way to start your day with a little encouragement in the morning.

    This would be a good devotional to share with a friend or on your own. It's short and to the point, without being shallow. I will be recommending this one to mom's in my circle.
