Devotions are bite sized chunks of the Word paired with thoughts that apply to real life in a special way. I can't tell you how many times I've turned to a book of devotions for a dose of light during a dark time or encouragement on a rough day.

I'm so glad the authors were so faithful to write them - so brave about putting their work out there for publication.
