It's Just You & Me, Lord: Everyday Prayers for a Woman's Life
This is a perfect book to give as a gift to a special woman in your life (Mother, Grandmother, Best Friend, Sick Friend). I liked the content of the book, easy to read prayers and perfect scripture references. I gave this book 5/5 stars. I thought the author did a great job of honoring the Lord and directing you to Him during any difficult moment you might be dealing with. I would recommend this book for any woman that is looking for encouragement in multiple areas in their lives.
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.

Beautiful Prayer book for women
A woman's journey through life is marked by relationships, responsibilities, and concerns.Marion Stroud offers earnest prayers to inspire and encourage women through the daily and not-so-daily challenges of life.
She has written beautiful prayers in poetry form. She includes scripture and quotes to further enhance each message. Headings within the prayer book are: A Woman Within, A Woman and Her Marriage, A Woman and Her Children, A Woman and Her Friends, A Woman at Work, A Woman and Her Family of Faith, A Woman and Her Wider World, and A Woman Growing Older. So you can see that there is something to speak to every woman's heart, no matter her age or situation in life. This devotional prayer book is small and could easily fit into a purse, diaperbag, or briefcase for reading and meditating during lunch or coffee break time. They are short enough that one can easily read them if there is only a five or ten minute break in the daily routine. I would highly recommend this book to those who need daily guidance to make it through the day....I know that I certainly need prayers. This book is another avenue of my prayer life.

Lovely and Intimate Book
It's Just You and Me Lord was a lovely and intimate book. I did not know what to really expect when I requested this book. I was not disappointed the book is actually about women and their prayers that they tell to God. It was so intimate that I was very moved. After reading the book I had to actually examine my own prayer life and realized I needed to begin my intimate talks with God just as these ladies have done. I really enjoyed the book and I recommend this book to all women. It is a very moving and wonderful book and I am sure you will enjoy it as I have.
I received this book for free from NetGally.com and Discovery House Publishing. This review is solely on my thoughts of the book and I was not influenced in any way. Thank you for the opportunity to read this book.

This book is like a go to book of prayers of for any and every occasion. The prayers are personalized to the author's experiences and from what I noticed I can interchange a few words to personalize them to my experiences. I don't know why I was expecting something different however I got a book straight from the author's heart filled with her memories and experiences. It is one that of course makes a good read and shows her faith in action. It also shows the times when her faith is shaky but she still held on to it.
