    What Happened to My Life

    I have always liked books like this one. I appreciate different perspectives from different writers living a better life with meaning. I especially like these books when they have room for journaling and questions for readers to reflect on.

    In this book, the author has a lot of information, wisdom, personal experiences, and experiences of other women before she gets to the forty daily readings which sets the reader up to better absorb and reflect on each daily devotional. I prefer that to just jumping right in to the daily readings, perhaps because of the author's writing style. Danna writes in a way that is very soothing and comforting, but also in a conversational way that makes this book easy to read.

    There are a lot of books like this to choose from and this is one I would recommend. It never feels preachy, but at the same time it is rich in Biblical wisdom and advice. The author has worked hard to create a book that is both helpful and comforting. The daily devotionals are short, but they have a strong impact. Each has a prayer and room to write your thoughts. It's a must read for the woman who needs to live a more Biblical life.
