21 Days of Christmas | Kathy Ide

 

Today I am reviewing 21 Days of Christmas, a fiction lover’s devotional featuring 21 authors, by Kathy Ide.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Christmas is more than just a holiday. It is a time to recapture the joy and wonder of God’s greatest gift: His Son, Jesus.

21 Days of Christmas will warm your heart with stories about giving, loving, and family.

These engaging tales celebrate the hope and joy that make this blessed season unique. At the end of each story you’ll find an insightful message that will help you discover anew the true meaning of this special time of year.

So grab a cup of hot apple cider with a cinnamon stick, curl up in your favorite chair beside a picture window overlooking a serene spot, and savor the true meaning of Christmas through these inspirational and encouraging stories.

MY THOUGHTS:

21 Days of Christmas will be a inspiration to all who read it!

These wonderful holiday short stories will attract believers as well as non-believers… and will be a great witness to all.

Kathy Ide has taken twenty-one stories of Christmas and brought them together to inspire and uplift the holiday season. Although a few aren’t stories I would normally enjoy, I feel that most readers will be blessed by them.

Along with the first book in this series, 21 Days of Grace, it makes a great addition to any personal library. It can also be used as a devotional, with life applications included with each story. Each of these stories can be read in a short time, so you can enjoy them anytime.

I plan to purchase several copies to give as Christmas gifts!

21 Days of Grace | Kathy Ide

 

Today I am reviewing 21 Days of Grace, a fiction lover’s devotional featuring 21 authors, by Kathy Ide.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Christians have long loved devotionals, but today’s Christians are also developing a strong love for fiction.

They want to read stories about characters they can relate to, who experience situations similar to their own, and learn from those examples how to live out their faith. For them, life lessons are more easily absorbed this way.

21 Days of Grace fits all of these needs. It is a collection of engaging, inspirational short fiction stories written by new, intermediate, and well-known authors including Angela Hunt, Deborah Raney, Cindy Woodsmall, Cecil Murphey, Robin Bayne, and more.

Like Jesus’ parables, these stories deal with important life issues in a subtle, unpressured manner. And, as Jesus did, the authors follow up with life applications based on the stories, suggesting how the inherent lessons can be applied to the reader’s daily life.

MY THOUGHTS:

21 Days of Grace is a blessing to those who read it!

Kathy Ide has taken twenty-one wonderful stories of grace – and brought them together to inspire and uplift those who read them. I can only imagine how difficult it was for Kathy to choose which stories would be included – and I’m hoping another book will be released sometime in the future.

While it makes a great addition to any personal library, this book can also be used as a devotional, with life applications included with each story. I plan to purchase several copies to give as gifts; the stories would attract believers as well as non-believers, in my opinion, and would be a great witness to all.

The stories are full of goodness, yet can be read in a short amount of time. This would be a great book to begin your day… and since many of the writers are favorites of mine, this is just what I’m planning to do. I can’t think of a better way to start my own day!

This book deserves a solid 5 stars in my opinion… I only wish I could give it a higher rating.

God bless you!
