The author is able to look at everyday life and bring to the reader the 'inspiration' and 'lessons' that are in our everyday lives if we keep our hearts open. She learned well from Grandma how to find God in everyday things. She gives a part of herself in each of the inspirational messages just as she gives us God's word in relation to our everyday lives. She reminds us that it's ok to be human, after all that is how God made us.
