Blessings for the Morning: A Book Review That Does Not Have My Blessing

Blessings for the Morning: Prayerful Encouragement to Begin Your Day  -     By: Susie Larson

Blessings for the Morning by Susie Larson is supposed to be a great devotional to start off your day.  But I was extremely disappointed with the lack of substance in this book!  In fact, I haven’t been able to get all the way through it.

The pictures are beautiful.  The words are flowery.  And the Bible passages are familiar ones.  But as far as encouraging your walk with God, there isn’t much substance.  There is no further study available, no thought-provoking questions, and no real meat to this book.  In fact, I couldn’t remember what I had read just an hour after reading it!

I love a good devotional book, but this is not it.  While I think the author was probably trying to write a book for our busy lives, I would have liked a little more information on further studying the passage if I had time.

I think this book is more of a gathering of good verses and sayings, and I would have to recommend something else for your daily devotions.

*This book was given to me by Bethany House Publishers in exchange for my honest review.

First of all, I am a child of God. I was blessed to come to know Him as my personal Savior when I was just 5 years old! God has blessed me with a wonderful husband, Jamie, who puts up with all of my crazy ideas; a beautiful daughter, Hannah, who is teaching me how to mother in God's grace; a handsome little boy, Ephraim, who keeps us all laughing; and bossy, sweet-natured Harmony, who is never boring! We are enjoying the ups and downs of being parents and look forward to meeting others who are on the same unpredictable journey of parenthood!
