    I decided that this year, instead of buying a new daily devotional book, I would work through books I already owned. And because I am a bit OCD this way, I just started at the beginning of the first shelf and that's how I began with The Faith Dare by Debbie Alsdorf. {It released back in 2010 through Revell.}

    I got this book back when I worked at a radio station, and I'd read quickly through it as I prepared to help interview Debbie about the book. But I wanted to go through it again, at a slower pace, learning and absorbing. The Faith Dare is divided into three sections, with ten days devoted to your relationship with God, ten days to surrendering yourself, and ten days to your relationships with others, for a total of a month's worth of readings. {And that's why I'm reporting the book to you now! I finished reading through it this week!}

    Each day's reading includes some stories from Debbie's life, several Scripture passages, some practical "dares" for living out the principles of the day in your life, a place to journal your thoughts, and a prayer.

    I came away from a month of studying faith feeling challenged and convicted about areas of my life where my faith lacked. The first two-thirds of the study were particularly challenging to me and made me ask hard questions of myself regarding just how serious I was about living a life of faith. The last third of the study was more focused on relationships with others, and while it was helpful to me in conjunction with what we were studying in our small group at the time, it was a shift away from the state of my faith in God.

    Devotional books tend to frustrate me, because I find them fluffy. I appreciated how many Scripture passages Debbie included in each day's reading, because it drove me to study the Word of God and not just the words of an author. But I also appreciated her own insights and stories. I kept my pen handy so I could underline as I went, and she had some good thoughts to preserve, like these:

    "Wild faith is surrendered, passionate and courageous. It humbly seeks and fearlessly follows."

    "You cannot spray the Holy Spirit on like perfume in the morning. You must be connected to Jesus to bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit in your life."

    "If we believed we are complete in Christ, we could stop our search for something more and could begin living life."

    For this study, I didn't focus so much on the daily dares and the journaling section, but I appreciated that she included them, as I think many would find them helpful.

    If you're looking to examine your faith, I think this book would be a helpful and practical guide in leading you to think about areas you might not otherwise consider! It was a great study for me in beginning a new year!

    The book covers the basic foundations of walking with the Lord... For many who have been walking with the Lord for a while now the study might be nothing new but the emphasis on practically living out what we have heard has been to me a new insight on how to live up to my high calling in Christ Jesus.

    I have found myself stepping out and living up in ways i would have shied away earlier - found that i was finding time through out the day to focus on truth for the day.....

    Each day i find myself anxiously looking foward to the time devotion wherein I have experienced the Lord speaking to me in new ways...

    I took the dare! (Only, it took me more like 45 days to do it then just the 30~ SHAME ON ME! I'm a busy mom to 5... I know, I know, that's no excuse!)The dare challenges you with practical dares that make complete since!Here are a few of the dare:Dare to pay attention to God's leadDare to live differently by liking like are loved (Good dare, beautiful scriptures!)Dare to believe God's power in all circumstancesDare to renew you mind in God's wordDebbie has done an awesome job! I think that this would make a great gift for a new believer, a church leader and an awesome devotional to work through as a small group.Devotionals took me a 40 minutes to get through. Mainly because I turned to the scriptures in my Bible to read in a different version and to mark up my Bible with some new favorites and truths.

    Faith Dare, Debbie AlsdorfAn excellent resource for womens ministry groups! This would be a great small group bible or personal bible study. I loved all the scripture commentary. So many ladies bible studies are filled with fluff and weak on the word. This one is certainly not. This is set up as a forty day study. However I found that many of these could very easily be stretched through the entire week if you were committed to pray each day over the same lesson and meditate on it allowing it to penetrate your heart and life. There is plenty of space for journaling ones thoughts. To make journaling easier there are guided questions. Again this would be great for a small group as it would add accountability to the dare.Thank you Revell for the review copy. Pick up your copy where ever Revell books are sold
