The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional

Fisk, Julie. Roehl, Kendra. Demery, Kristin. The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional: 365 Inspiring Ideas to Reveal, Give, and Find God’s Love. Carol Stream, IL: Tyndale Momentum/ Tyndale House Publishers. 2017.

With a whole year of inspirational devotions to read, share and act upon, The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional is complete with a scripture verse, personal story, and an act of kindness to randomly perform for each day. Organized into days with a one-page devotion, the three authors take turns supplying the devotion with an associated idea for action. Easy and enjoyable to read but containing a possible huge impact, this one year devotional is do-able, relatable and personable.

Already looking for my next devotional for the new year, The One Year Daily Acts of Kindness Devotional will fill that need. Simple to begin any day during the year, I appreciate the organization and honesty with which it was written. Realizing the effect daily acts of kindness could have on myself as well as others, this book would work well in a group setting or for individual use. Having several other devotionals already from The One Year series, I know the reliability and timeliness of the included devotions as well as the scriptural references. Well thought out and organized, my search for a 2018 devotional is now complete.

Life is Better at the Beach

Vinson, Christina. Life is Better at the Beach: Inspiration for Living Each Day Like You’re at the Beach. Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson. 2016.


With short thoughts, inspirational ideas, gentle encouragement and beautiful pictures, Life is Better at the Beach is the perfect book for enjoying on the beach next to the moving waves. Broken into 15 rules of the beach (take long walks, read a good book, build sandcastles), each intention is then expanded on with a short motivational thought, a relevant scripture verse and an accompanying image. Hard covered and sized just right for the beach bag, the day at the beach will continue…

Ideal for taking along on vacation, nestling up with in the lawn chair, or absorbing on the beach blanket, this book is wonderful. Loving the water as much as my family does as well as our countless time spent at the beach, it will be a permanent fixture in the beach bag. Beautiful as a gift, sharing with friends or personal use, Life is Better at the Beach will make that time even more enjoyable. Between the gorgeous pictures, the sturdiness of the covers and the inspirations found within the chapters, that beach-day feeling will last even longer now, perhaps even through the snowy winter?
