BookwormAge: 25-344 Stars Out Of 5A motivating and inspirational devotionalMarch 8, 2018BookwormAge: 25-34Quality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4I really enjoy devotionals, especially the ones that do not have the dates on posted on each one. If you miss a day, or don't want to begin on the first day of the year, you don't feel like you're missing out or reading out of sequence. I like the flavor of this devotion that has a pay it forward type of meaning in each one. With a pay-it-forward type of feel, each devotion inspires me to do something nice for others - even if it's just a simple gesture to make them smile or to lessen their worries. This is a well thought out book that is deeply motivating and effective.

The ideology behind this publication is to commit to performing an act of kindness every day for one year. The authors present an idea for each day, such as Kindness To A Kid or The Gift of Guidance, followed by a scripture reference, a real-life example, and a brief detailed description of the daily act of kindness.
What an amazing difference we could make within this world if we took this idea and put it into practice.
This is not a unique idea, for others have suggested similar, but its presentation is unique and powerful, thus this is a recommended purchase with the hopes that it is implemented.

DAILY ACTS OF KINDNESS DEVOTIONAL
365 Inspiring Ideas to Reveal, Give, and Find Gods Love
By Julie Fisk, Kendra Roehl, & Kristin Demery
This devotional is a part of The One Year collection of Bibles and devotionals designed to help people read through the Bible in one year. This devotional written by Julie Fisk, Kendra Roehl and Kristin Demery covers the need for us all to do at least one act of kindness each day. They share a short story of a kindness done to help someone have a better day. The stories are written individually by the three women, adding their separate views and are encouraging and inspiring. They will add to your day and encourage you to do likewise by showing a little extra help to someone. The writing is easy to read and understand, along with the short story they give a scripture verse to think about that day and a suggested act of kindness for the day.
As with all the One Year books, the devotions are dated so you can start at any time and reach your goal of completing your reading in a year. The book would make a great gift for anyone. I think you will enjoy this book.
The world needs to see the kind of love that is possible with daily acts of kindness.
A couple acts of kindness from the book;
Do you need to apologize to someone? Dont let the sun set without reaching out with an apology.
Offer encouragement or support to a stranger who is going through a challenging circumstance.

KaraAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5KindnessOctober 10, 2017KaraAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional: 365 Inspiring Ideas to Reveal, Give, and Find Gods Love by Julie Fisk, Kendra Roehl, and Kristin Demery, is an amazing book. It encourages readers to be more intentional in their attitudes and acts of kindness.
The authors began writing this devotional with a month-long daily act of kindness commitment, but ended up writing a year-long devotional, changing not only their own lives but also that of their families. Each devotion includes a scripture reference, a short inspirational personal story about Gods call for kindness and generosity, and a suggested act of kindness. The devotions are designed for busy people and can be started at any time of the year. They are designed to help the reader form positive habits that connect with things that are important to God.
This is a wonderful devotional. I especially liked the suggested acts of kindness for each day. Some ideas were repeated later in the year, but they were easy to implement, such as writing an encouraging note to someone online or visiting someone homebound or in the nursing home.
I would recommend this book to anyone who wishes to show more kindness to the world.

Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5The best way to serve others in unexpected ways!October 10, 2017Heart2HeartVictorville, CAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I fell in love the Random Acts of Kindness that first appeared in the movie Bruce Almighty, and even inspired me to spend my 49th birthday finding 49 different ways to do things for someone else instead of buying me more stuff I really don't need. And you know what, it is the only birthday I can remember over any of the other ones. I can even remember the things I did to make someone else's day instead of my own and the feeling was so amazing.
Now Tyndale House Publishers has appealed to me once again with The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional. In it readers will find themselves challenged not only by the daily Scripture reference from the Bible, but an applicable story that shows just how you can both apply the Scripture but also make someone else's day through random acts of kindness. At the conclusions of each days devotional, readers are challenged in some way to take that idea and make it their own, like Do something unexpectedly kind for a teacher, encourage someone else with your story of God's faithfulness, honor someone in your life by picking up the slack in their busy season, invite someone new to Thanksgiving this year and so many more.
Divided into daily devotionals, readers will love the ease and simplicity of being reminded it is about serving others through the daily acts we can perform to show them the love of Christ working within us. It keeps these reminders at the forefront and helps us to keep our hearts in the attitude of serving rather than being served. Each of the three authors, Kendra Roehl, Kristin Demery and Julie Fisk each take their turns at writing each daily devotional so in a sense they are sharing their own testimony and life with you as you work your way through each of the 365 days. The best part is that you don't have to wait to begin in January 1st, you can just pick up like I did right when I received my book.
I received The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional by Julie Fisk, Kendra Roehl and Kristin Demery compliments of Tyndale House Publishers. This is such a great book that I can speak more highly about, but that if you are looking at a way of making your daily life count more, looking for ways to serve others, and even ideas on incorporating daily acts of kindness into your day, than this book is perfect for you. I give this one a 5 out of 5 stars because as a busy mom, wife and more, I need something to keep my heart in the right place and this works for me.
