Book Review | Daily Guideposts 2011 A Spirit-Lifting Devotional
I have been enjoying the annual Daily Guideposts book series since I was a young girl. I remember reading the heart-warming stories every year while visiting my beloved nana. I jumped at the chance to review the new Daily Guideposts 2011: A Spirit-Lifting Devotional and it was just as inspiring now as it was then. I was surprised to see that this is the 35th anniversary edition which just reinforces that it is an amazing book series. Daily Guideposts 2011 “celebrates growing in God’s love and wisdom, bringing readers simple yet profound devotions to connect with God in new ways-even on the most hectic of days.” I think this is what I appreciate the most about the Daily Guideposts book series. When I was a young girl struggling with “feeling” my religious faith I would read the collection of Daily Guidepost stories and it brought faith to life for me in a completely real way that I could understand and relate to. There are over 50 writers that have contributed stories about their faith in God and how it has affected their families, faith, relationships and almost every aspect of life.
Perhaps my favorite in Daily Guideposts 2011 was by Patricia Lorenz who brought to life a story of our beloved Florida manatees and those who are seeking “warmer waters and warmer life.”
“There is the sea, great and broad, In which are swarms without number, Animals both small and great”-Psalm 104.25 (NAS).
There are so many other inspirational stories in this series that I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves the Daily Guideposts book series and especially for anyone who has never read it before but likes to read a good devotional. I can imagine that we flash forward another thirty years from now and my own grandchildren will come to visit and pick up a copy of “nana’s” guideposts and continue a wonderful tradition.
