This notion was what woke up author Cassie Garrett one night: a vocal statement from God telling her to write a book and the inspirations from Him to lead her into conceptualizing her new book, My Life Verses for Your Everyday Life.
Comprised of a sixteen-week, daily study, My Life Verses for Your Everyday Life concentrates on not only providing readers with Bible verses to help in mild to extreme situations that may happen in a day; but also to ponder on what God is revealing of areas needing change in your life, spiritual walk and views toward others.
Cassie uses her personal life moments of reflection and discovery to support her points and scriptural references. A sudden move in her family's life caused her and her husband to change jobs, cities and for their children to begin new schools.
As the couple worked to establish their dream of their own restaurant, Cassie found herself scrambling to complete things on work and home to-do lists, while shortchanging herself time to spend with God in prayer and reflection.
God's revelations to her of needing time with Him, as well as taking the Bible's advice to heart in handling life's circumstances, challenged her previous ways of dealing with life and the importance of seeking God daily for encouragement.
With My Life Verses for Your Everyday Life, Cassie hopes readers will see the need for Jesus and realize His sacrifice on the cross was so that when life's little dilemmas pop up, we have a Savior to go to for help, love and protection. God's light can shine as much in handling life's small problems as well as in large trials.

I can't express in words how much I loved this book. It gave me so much reassurance in areas I've been working on in my walk with Christ but also gave me new advice on how to further strengthen my relationship with Him. When this author described scenes from the Bible they really came to life for me. During a time that I was finding it hard to go to God's word, this book totally renewed my desire to pick up my Bible. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get closer to Jesus! You won't be disappointed!!
