Embrace God's Love Every Day
What if God sent you a personal, daily message to remind you that he is present, that he loves you, and that things are going to work out?

Will Bowen is an ordained minister, sought after motivational speaker, and author of the international bestseller, A Complaint Free World, among other books. He lives with his family near Kansas City, Missouri.
Begin each day with a deep awareness of God's presence:
Come with me.
I am walking just ahead of you-always in sight,
never more than a pace or two ahead.
Here I am. Take my hand.
I have amazing things to show you.
What a gift-sort of a "spiritual vitamin" to start each and every morning. Some of the messages are so profound that they have found their way laminated and into my wallet or on my desk where I can see them every day. -M. Manard, Gladstone, MO
I really feel like I am talking to God when I read them every morning. You have so helped me. -M. Clesi, Boca Raton, FL
The devotions lift me up beyond the daily dramas, always pointing up towards the Light and Truth that never changes.
-S. Farrow, Vancouver Island, BC
On many occasions the messages are exactly what I need that day. Recently I have been sharing them with my teenage daughter and she loves them! -S. Garland, Kansas City, MO
I can't tell you how much "To You, Love God" has meant to me. I read your inspired messages every morning, and what a beautiful way to begin the day. They give comfort, peace, and insight into experiencing the life God wants us all to experience. -J. Westhoff, Green Valley, AZ
These messages are the backbone of keeping my attitude positive, and helping me learn to accept others and myself as beings created by God. -P. Loffstrom, Zinga, Tanzania
The messages of "To You, Love God" have inspired and sustained me through some of the most difficult times of my life including a divorce and the recent sudden loss of my daughter.-C. Pizzi, Calabash, NC
"To You, Love God" inspires me, makes me think, and most importantly, helps me appreciate all the blessings that come my way. -D. Kelley, Clifton Park, NY
I read these daily letters from God after I pray and meditate. They seem to be written directly to me each day. -E. Ruppert, Delray Beach, FL
I count on starting my day with the wisdom of "To You, Love God." - S. Prince, Long Beach, CA
I look at life differently than I did before. Gone is the "poor me" attitude. - K. Hill Morristown, TN
They are always inspirational and often "spot on" as to what happens to be going on with me in my life. Very uncanny!

Will Bowen's newly published devotional- To You; Love, God: A Year of Daily Guidance and Inspiration Straight from the Source is a unique book. Based on the title, many readers will automatically assume this is a Christian devotional book- one of many in the saturated daily devotional genre. Not only that, there are many Christian devotionals on the market written in the first person- as if God is personally writing letters to the reader using first person pronouns. Other than the usage of the word "God" in this devotional book, there is nothing to explicitly identify this book a Christian. There are no specific references to "Jesus" or any other biblical figures or leaders for that matter. A Christian may in fact read this devotional and not even notice the lack of specific references to biblical concepts such as Jesus, sin, salvation or Satan. Many will read the pages of this devotional and interject their own ideas of faith and may be oblivious to the fact this book really does not concretely align with any major religion, much less denomination. This book refers to broad spirituality and a deity, referred to as God. There is the integration of new age concepts such as relativism, and the idea that there are multiple ways to truth and salvation. Yet in this entire book there is nothing that is overtly about Jesus or the bible or Christianity, just benign concepts of prayer and faith. Because of this lack of religious alignment, this book will have broad appeal. Whether Jewish, Catholic, Wiccan or New Age spiritualist, regardless of one's denomination or religion, I don't think any reader will find offense at this book. This book may even be encouraging to agnostics and general spiritualists. This book may be a good outreach method to draw in non religious readers and general spiritual readers into positive concepts of faith, well being, kindness, empowerment and self help. I believe readers of all ages with find encouragement in these pages. Bowen is an "Ordained Minister" but as a reader, I am unclear of what he is ordained as. His book is benign, non offensive, yet positive and uplifting. It would make a good inspirational, self help book. In its pages are down to earth analogies or modern day "parables" which end with good advice for anyone seeking direction or motivation. Nevertheless it not specifically "Christian" or biblically based, unless the reader chooses to read its pages in light of their own theological or bible based beliefs. For those looking for in-depth theology in the faith of an extreme crisis, CS Lewis or Max Lucado books would be more appropriate. This book would be a good gateway to religion in general or perhaps Christianity. This generic, embryonic faith expressed by Bowen's writing style has the potential to become whatever faith, or religion the reader wants it to be. As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Convergent books.
Oh my, how I love this book! This is the best Christian book I think I’ve read in a while. It really has touched my heart and I think it could reach everyone. This book is more along the lines of a Daily Devotional book. There is a message for every day of the year and you are to read one every day. The messages are very heart felt. I feel like the purpose of the book is for you to become conscious of the fact that God does love you, guides you every day and His presence over your life. I have been reading a passage each day out of this book and it has given me things to think about. I think you don’t really think about these kinds of things on a daily basis and having this book has made me more aware of these things and more aware of the things in my life. I have really connected with this book. The cover is absolutely beautiful. I love the red writing, it reminds me of Christ’s blood that He shed for us. I love the style of the font, to me, it makes it feel warm, peaceful and full of love. I believe strongly that these messages would be what God would say to us if He could personally send us a letter from Heaven. It’s just overall a great book. I would definitely recommend this book to everyone of all ages. I think this book would make a nice gift for a young Christian. You know how it is to start out as a young believer, this would make a nice thing for them to have and to help them develop their relationship with God. Will Bowen created a wonderful book and I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to read, review and own this book. I give it all the stars in the world! (Yes, it’s really that great! :) ) I received this book for free from Blogging For Books Program in exchange for my honest review.
It’s no secret how fond I am of Will Bowen’s books. From A Complaint Free World, to Happy this Year, his insightful writings have taught me, inspired me, so often providing me with the motivational push I need, at just the right time. His new book, To You Love God is certainly no exception. This lovingly written book is a blessing to the reader, written as if “straight from God.” Bowen’s inspiration came after realizing that, as a Pastor of a church in Kansas City, his congregation left church on Sundays “upbeat and excited,” but by mid-week appearing as if their “spiritual batteries had drained down.” In an effort to keep that Sunday morning feeling going, he created encouraging daily emails, sending them out to his church community as if written from God. He titled the messages “To You, Love God.” Bowen’s new book is a collection of the best 365 writings culled from more than 2,500 of those original emails, which were sent over a period of nearly seven years. I began receiving these meditations several months ago, and reading them have become a practice for me, along with my morning cup of coffee. I’ve gained such insight, inspiration and guidance from these daily readings. I highly recommend this book as a gift – to yourself, and to those you love – family and friends. It’s like getting 365 gifts, all bound in one book. Beautifully written, so full of heart. This is a book to read over, from year to year, with messages that will always ring true. Thanks again, Will, for another perfect book!
