About Me I am a retired librarian and I now support books and authors through my reviews.

I have always loved to read and I was able to share that love through my work as a public librarian for 22 1/2 years. I now promote literacy by reading, and then writing reviews. I love to support authors by sharing my reviews with others!

Dwell on These Things Inspiration Cards: 31 Thoughts to Align Your Heart with God's Truth by John Strange and Ink & Willow


Your daily inspiration is never far from reach with this unique set of cards that encourage you to see yourself through God's eyes, featuring messages that are biblical and beneficial, all designed to be displayed with the included stand.

Countless messages enter our hearts and minds each day. Some of these messages are true and helpful. Others are hurtful, destructive, and out of line with the message God wants us to understand and embrace. What messages are you choosing to believe and repeat to yourself? When you first saw your reflection in the mirror this morning, what did your internal conversation sound like? Did you speak a message of hope to your heart or a diatribe of defeat?

Based on the book Dwell on These Things by John Stange, this thirty-one-day inspirational card set will encourage you to change the message that enters your mind into a positive, biblical one. On the front of each beautifully designed card is a short message to remind you of how God views you and everyday situations. The back of the card reinforces that message with time-tested wisdom.

Let this be your first step in a great journey toward self-love and self-acceptance! Change your life by changing the messages that enter your mind.


These cards are meant to be a supplement to the book Dwell on These Things by John Strange, but I found them to be inspiring and useful in their own right. Each of the thirty-one cards has a motivational thought on one side, with a deeper explanation on the other.  Some of the thoughts include "Value listening as much as you value speaking.", "You can rely on God's unconditional love.", and "The Lord hears your cry for mercy." Turn the card over and each thought is explained even further. 

These thirty-one cards come in an attractive case and there is also a cardboard stand that allows a single card to be chosen for the day and displayed on a table or desk.  I loved the bright colors of the cards and the sturdy cardboard makes them especially durable for repeated use. Dwell on These Things Inspiration Cards are great for personal use, they are perfect for gifts, and I can also see them being sent individually in cards and letters. There are times when we all need encouraging and motivational words, and these cards certainly meet the challenge. My only wish is that they also offered applicable Bible scripture.

I received a complimentary set from Ink & Willow and Waterbrook Publishing. A positive review was never required. These are my own thoughts.
