I dearly love Jesus Calling. It keeps me focused and encourages me every day!! I DO PREFER the deluxe editions of Jesus Calling tho! THEY have the scripture references included at the bottom and I think you NEED to read GOD'S WORD along with Sarah Young's thoughts. The deluxe editions make that easy for you in case you don't have your Bible right with you OR you don't have to turn to those in your Bible--they are printed out for you!! I actually ordered this small version by mistake. I thought I was ordering the deluxe/with scriptures.I love all the beautiful colored covers---I give these as gifts, I ordered one recently in Spanish for a little friend. Was disappointed it was not available in the deluxe/with scriptures. Please make this an option soon. The little extra $$ is worth the scriptures being there---for me anyway!!
The daily devotions may be short, but they are full of truth. I appreciate the encouragement I have received from reading Jesus Calling. I really like the pink leather cover and ribbon marker. I purchased one of these for myself and two as gifts.
