Daily Grace for Daily Life: Encouragement for Women by Anita Higman & Hillary McMullen, 2013
A little book of Daily Grace expands to a full heart as you receive and reflect, offering an uplifting cup of mercy in your day to yourself and those around you. Anita and her daughter, Hillary, share these devotions that will boost you to explore further and allow God to fill you with joy and thanksgiving at His bountifulness in any season of life. Just the right size to take with you, I like how there are topic sections with 9-10 devotions within them ~ Embracing God's Passion; Practicing the Art of Praise; Finding Victory in the Midst of Sorrow; Decluttering our Spirits; Cultivating a Servant's Heart; Viewing Life from Heaven's Porch; Reflecting the Beauty of Mercy; Discovering Who I Was Meant to Be; and Hearing the Voice of God.
"Truly, I say to you, unless you turn
and become like children, you will
never enter the kingdom of heaven."
Matthew 18:3 ESV
Imagine a child on Christmas morning. Her delight at the bright, colorful packages under the tree and the promise of hours of enjoyment hidden beneath the wrapping. Most likely, the little girl has done nothing to deserve the gifts. Yet she accepts them all without question and with great joy and gratitude. Unfortunately, people may find Christ's grace a little harder to accept than a Christmas present. The concept of complete forgiveness for all their sins can be a difficult thing to grasp. And even harder to fathom is the fact that His grace is a free giftit can't possibly be earned by their own merit.
When Jesus' disciples asked Him who would be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven, He responded by calling a small child to Him and telling them that if they became humble like a little child, they would be the greatest in heaven. Contrary to the world's definition of greatness, Jesus was asking them to become lowly and meek, with a deep realization of their inability to achieve forgiveness through any effort of their own. Just as a child will throw herself at the foot of the Christmas tree to tear open her gifts, so should we approach Christ's grace with joyful abandon. HM
God, thank You for the free gift of grace.
Help me to accept it without inhibitions or fear.

***Thank you to author Anita Higman for this copy of Daily Grace for Daily Life. This review was written in my own words. No other compensation was received.***
These are simple, yet profound devotionals that are uplifting no matter what I might be struggling with on a particular day. I love how each one begins with a verse and ends with a short prayer. Perfect for reading anytime during the day. I was reading them in the morning for the most part, but sometimes at night too. I can see myself leaving this one handy to pick up again and again.
I won this devotional in a contest and I am in love with it! The book itself is very high quality, which I love as a devotional gets touched every day, but the writing inside is an even higher quality! I love devotionals, and currently have two others I'm going through, so this sat on my dining room table for a few days, and then last week I was having a really rough day, saw the book, stopped and opened it to a random page.
"One of the best ways to shrug off a bad mood is to start noticing the little things. It may take a Herculean effort to see past the frustrations and annoyances that can pile up during the day, but when the shift of focus is made, sunshine pierces the gloom."
Talk about a book speaking to you - that was truly a God thing! I got the message I needed and I've added this book to my daily rotation :)
Daily Grace for Daily Life, Encouragement for Women by Anita Higman & Hillary McMullen
I found this devotional to be refreshing, energizing and full of faith. It starts with a scripture then a short story that applies to the scripture and ends with a prayer. Through-out the book you will find quotes from famous authors that inspire faithfulness. I highly recommend this devotional to encourage women of all ages and situations in life. I give this book 5 stars, because I found many of the devotions to be a great encouragement and applicable to me.
