Making God Smile by Kim Taylor Henry

My review:

More than just an inspiring daily message, this book leads you on a year-long journey of aligning your actions to your heart’s intentions. Making God Smile overflows with encouragement, reminders, practical tips, personal and inspiring stories, scriptural insight, and biblical teaching that will show you how to reflect love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, and self-control. By embracing this fruit, others will see Christ in you and your life will be more than you ever imagined possible.

My review:
  I would think it would be difficult to write a 365 day devotional on living  the fruits of the Spirit, but this author has done exactly that.

 As with any devotional I have reviewed, I didn't read every entry, but read several throughout the book to get a good look at it....and I am impressed at how this devotional turned out. I am sure the average Christian could do better with living the fruits of the Spirit, and what better way to improve on that than reading daily about living those?

  The devotional is for 365 days, but is not split up into months nor labeled by month and dates. They are simply labeled day 1, day 2, etc., on up through 365. Each day starts with a Bible verse, followed by the author's thoughts, and ending with a short one-two line prayer.

 I found the devotionals well written and helpful. The author has come up with a great devotional that is different from others on the market, and I would recommend it.
