Overview

Bestselling author and Christian counselor H. Norman Wright (2.7 million books sold) combines biblical principles with his enthusiasm for dogs in this warmhearted and inspiring devotional. In stories of loyalty and perseverance, Norm draws parallels between the dog world and the human world to reveal God's love in action:

  • A dog's tendency to gnaw on bones reflects how people handle worry. Instead, people can give God their fears and experience His peace.
  • A cowering dog becomes joyous when forgiven. When people confess their sins, they receive God's forgiveness and joy returns.
  • A dog who rescues a boy in a tsunami shows how the Holy Spirit convicts people of sin so they'll turn to Christ and be saved.

From daily antics to extraordinary deeds, these dogs personify the ups and downs of life and highlight the joys and benefits of following God.

Truly Devoted is a devotional that shows what our dogs teach us about life, love and loyalty. The devotions in the book are short enough to easily read in a single sitting – about 2-3 pages each. Each devotion provides a humorous story about dogs and then parallels the lesson learned from the story to lessons learned in the Scriptures. Among the lessons are topics such as companionship, trust, worry, loyalty and love. A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS: This devotional will definitely appeal to all dog lovers. The pages are filled with German Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, Shelties and more! The adorable dog stories provide not only a smile but also a ponder point. This is a must read that should be shared with your best friend – your dog of course! Who knew that Man’s Best Friend, aka our furry companions, could provide lessons in life, love and loyalty? RATING: 4 (out of 5) pennies. *I received a complimentary copy of "Truly Devoted" from Harvest House Publishers for my honest review*
