jor for the journey Jun 18, 2002

nice devotional Jan 12, 2001
The reviewers before me did a nice job of covering the content of this nice little devotional book, so I won't do that again. However, I have enjoyed this book so much I wanted to add my comments and say that I find myself picking it up to read at all times of the day. With 2 very young children I have little time to read, but with the verses on one page and the inspirational story on the other, I find that I am able to complete the message at one time. I would highly recommend this book to any woman who wants to spend more time in God's word.
An Encouraging "Companion" For Every Day Apr 12, 2000
Sometimes, a book becomes a constant source of encouragement, a faithful companion with good things to say. JOY FOR THE JOURNEY--a lusciously bound and composed work--is that type of book.
The promises of God are paired with the insights of Christian women to supply your mind and heart with good news at every moment when it's needed. Find promises to help you recapture joy, or assist you to develop godly habits or to aid you in your struggle through heartache. For the last you find, "In the day when I cried out, You answered me, and made me bold with strength in my soul," from Psalm 138:3, paired with an essay by Liz Curtis Higgs, who says that "laughter is how we take a much-needed break from heartache."
Under the heading PROMISES TO HELP YOU WAIT IN HOPE, you'll find from Psalm 27:14, "Wait on the Lord, be of good courage,and He shall strengthen your heart," combined with words from Edith Schaeffer about how we wait for all manner of things, and most of all, for Christ's return.
If you're the type of person who enjoys devotional books, if you like to carry something beautifully written with you to give you an inspiring word when the days are rough or you are feeling doubts, then please obtain this lovely compilation. An encouraging word will always be at hand. *Mir*
A lovely, fragrant blossom of a devotional book Apr 7, 2000
I always am grateful when the publishers of books take the time to make not just the content worthy, but to also make the book itself a pleasure to hold and read. This small book, which comfortably fits a woman's hand, is such a volume.
The cover welcomes you with a bouquet of pink roses and golden lettering. The spine is a textured cloth. The endpages are beautifully speckled with bits of pastels. The pages themselves feel substantial, but are given lightness and beauty by the soft colors that inbue the paper.
The format is just as pleasing: On the left hand pages, you'll find Bible passages on specific promises, such as "Promises to Help You Learn From Others" or "Promises About Daring To Risk". On the right hand side is a brief passage to inspire you by the likes of Luci Swindoll, Gloria Gaither, Liz Curtis Higgs and Elisabeth Elliot. A wonderful compilation, feminine and comforting and uplifting.
I've had my copy since it was first published a few years back, but it recently received some water damage when my car sprang a leak (I kept the book with me when driving around town). I plan to order a new one, because it's, quite simply, a small treasure.
I recommend it for every Christian woman, and most especially, I recommend it as an affordable and pretty gift type of book which carries priceless advice.
Great Gift Book Apr 9, 1998
This little book makes a great gift. Its compact topics are wonderful as a devotional or just a short pick - me - up. As a librarian I have ordered it for our collection and the book hasn't been waiting on the shelf since.
