Book Review: Daily Guideposts 2011


This is the 35th year of publication for Daily Guideposts, a daily devotional that has sold more than 20 million copies since it debuted in 1975. That first book was written by one individual, Fred Bauer, as a collection of daily prayers and stories for year-round spiritual growth. The most recent edition, Daily Guideposts: 2011 has contributions from more than 50 writers.

Each page features a short scripture reading followed by a personal story related to it. At the end of each month, there is space for readers to write down their blessings so they will become more mindful of all they have to be thankful for in their lives.

I shared my copy of Daily Guideposts: 2011 with my mother, who has read many daily devotional books over the years. She had this to say:
I've always had some sort of daily devotional to reflect on during the day, and this one seems to be written well and in simple terms that are easy to carry with you. It's nice because the writers are reflecting on the scripture and heping you realize how it does carry through to this day and age ~ and even to events in your own life.
For more information, you can visit the Daily Guideposts website.

This review was written based on a copy of Daily Guideposts: 2011 that I received from Phenix & Phenix Literary Publicists in exchange for an honest review.

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
