    So as a woman, how much spare time do you have? I am willing to

    So as a woman, how much spare time do you have? I am willing to bet that all of us can find five spare minutes to enrich our Christian walk. And this devotional is the ideal one for that! I love the fact that the authors used the letters of the word "grace" as an acrostic for the five sections in the book. Each one-page devotion had a guilt trip to avoid followed by an applicable verse. Then there was a little anecdote or teaching that went with the topic. Each page ended with getting on the joy ride.

    There is something for every woman in this book. I found life lessons that truly spoke to me. I was humbled as I read about allowing others to help me. That is something I don't always like to do. Since there are those in my family who do not apply themselves. They prefer to be waited on hand on foot. I always felt that if I allow someone to help me or ask for help, I will be like them and be perceived as a "moocher." I took a moment after reading this devotional and surrendered that all to God.

    When you do pick this book up and read it, try to read only one page a day. There is a lot a of information, and I can assure you I will be going back and re-reading some of the sections at a later date. I think this is a perfect devotional and would make a great gift for mom!

    I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.

    The three coauthors offer 183 days, 6 months, of page-long inspiration. Each begins with a “Guilt Trip to Avoid”, then a short scripture passage, a personal story, and ends with a suggestion of how to “Take the Joy Ride”. Family stories of sickness and loss, of caring for loved stuffed animals, of rejection at work, and of busy, “cluttered” lives will make the circumstances of the daily reflection more real for readers. The book is organized around the acronym “GRACE”…beginning with a section on God, then Relationships, Acceptance, Challenges, and Emotions.
    The number of daily reflection, inspirational books surprised me. This year I’ve read quite a few. This one, like many others, is sometimes a joy to read. My teens may probably think books like these are corny, but I’ve found that focusing on suggestions – such as those in the “Take the Joy Ride” section (my favorite part) improve my day, give it meaning, and help me practice introspection…rather than rushing through without thinking.Three and a Half Stars

    Inspirational and Enjoyable

    Guilt trips...we've all got them and we've all been along for the ride. What I love about this book is the personal stories, the confessions of taking a wrong turn into guilt, but then finding the way out and back into joy. It's encouraging and uplifting. The stories are short, to the point and highly relatable. Shirley, Janine, and Kim make a great team of co-authors bringing a wide range of situations we can connect to.
