Women today are busy, stressed, and guilt-ridden, yet they long to develop their spiritual sides. Turning Guilt Trips into Joy Rides offers inspirational thoughts based on scripture brief enough to be read during a television commercial, yet insightful enough to open your eyes to the grace of God on days you change diapers and/or lead corporate meetings. Each reading suggests a Guilt Trip to Avoid and ends with a way to Take the Joy Ride. The book includes six months of daily readings so that you may establish a habit of connecting with God. Readings are listed under letters of the acronym G-R-A-C-E, representing God, Relationships, Acceptance, Challenges, and Emotions.
The co-authors hope these meaningful readings will help you deal with guilt both real and imagined. By applying the insights shared in Turning Guilt Trips into Joy Rides, you may develop a calmer, less guilt-ridden lifestyle and become better equipped to function as wives, mothers, and friends. Younger women often develop patters of thinking and experience feelings of guilt that carry over into their mature years, so women of all ages will find this book helpful.

I am willing to bet that all of us can find five spare minutes to enrich our Christian walk. And this devotional is the ideal one for that! I love the fact that the authors used the letters of the word "grace" as an acrostic for the five sections in the book. Each one-page devotion had a guilt trip to avoid followed by an applicable verse. Then there was a little anecdote or teaching that went with the topic. Each page ended with getting on the joy ride.
There is something for every woman in this book. I found life lessons that truly spoke to me. I was humbled as I read about allowing others to help me. That is something I don't always like to do. Since there are those in my family who do not apply themselves. They prefer to be waited on hand on foot. I always felt that if I allow someone to help me or ask for help, I will be like them and be perceived as a "moocher." I took a moment after reading this devotional and surrendered that all to God.
When you do pick this book up and read it, try to read only one page a day. There is a lot a of information, and I can assure you I will be going back and re-reading some of the sections at a later date. I think this is a perfect devotional and would make a great gift for mom!
