Words of Hope for Women by Carolyn Larsen

Words of Hope for WomenABOUT THE BOOK

When we get out of bed in the morning, we don't know what the day ahead holds. It could be routine. It could be amazing. It could be devastating. No matter what each day holds, one of the biggest influences on the direction our days take is our own attitude. We can live in fear, worry, and anxiety, or we can choose to live with purpose, trusting God in every circumstance.

Compact and concise, Carolyn Larsen's Words of Comfort for Women and Words of Hope for Women each offer you 90 inspiring devotional readings that will help you remember God's presence in your days and see your world from a positive perspective. These short, to-the-point readings illuminate God's promises and show you just how they apply to your everyday life. Beautifully designed, these devotionals are the perfect gift for a friend--and for yourself.

MY THOUGHTS.....

This book is proof positive that good things come in small packages. Words of Hope for Women is small enough to fit in most purses but it is overflowing with hope and inspiration. Author Carolyn Larsen shares ninety hope-filled devotions, each with an appropriate Bible scripture, that cover such subjects as grief, stress, forgiveness, your Christian witness, and your family. One that especially appealed to me was Hope in a New Attitude and Larsen reminds us that "You are his handiwork. He made you with a special job in mind through which you can serve him, and he's already equipped you to do that job. You are special to him because he made you" (p. 56)

Words of Hope for Women features a beautiful cover and attractively illustrated pages and it would be a perfect gift. Just be sure to keep one for yourself!

I received a copy from Revell but a positive review was not required. These are my own thoughts.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
