I was so impressed with this little book, especially because every page quotes Scripture! There are so many positive messages of encouragement in this book. Instead of making people feel guilty about their cravings, and their eating habits, or how their body looks, this book offers healing, positive attitudes, triumphant freedom, and constantly points the reader to Christ.
I think this book could apply to any craving or addiction, not just eating food. The messages in this book would help with anything that draws us away from God, forms a bad habit, or entices us to harm our health in some way. Continue reading

This book has one page entry for each day of the year, but it took me two years to read it! haha!
I loved how insightful and deep each devotional page is despite being short. There’s a lot of spiritual information packed concisely into each page.
I liked that there is a quote from a famous Christian, apologist, missionary, saint, or preacher on each page that corespondents with the subject of the day.
Each paragraph really makes you think and reevaluate your beliefs, and at the end of each topic there is a call to apply the lesson to your life in a real and tangible way through prayer and action.
A wonderful devotional for those who don’t want spiritual “fluff”, but are ready for the “meat” of the Word!

Tozer goes through most of the verses in 1 Peter, giving an overall view of what it means to be a Christian: what the true Christian believes, how the true Christian acts, and how the true Christian lives in a fallen world.
I found some of the writing to be wonderfully deep and insightful, but other parts were almost childish in their simplicity. There’s also a lot of repetition of the same ideas, same words, over again, and that got on my nerves.
The content is excellent with strong doctrine, but the writing is flabby and could use more editing. Continue reading
This is an empowering book about relying on God, surviving the battles of life, and being beautiful just the way you are! It’s definitely an inspiring and encouraging book!
One thing I really loved about this book is that it doesn’t just encourage you to survive through the dark places in life, but to also overcome that darkness and come out on the other side with inner light that you can shine onto others. Continue reading
