Healthier You – Book Review

healthier you

With the start of school right around the corner, it is the perfect time to start fresh – spiritually, mentally and physically. If you are like me and struggle with being healthy in any of those areas, then Katie Farrell’s book, Devotions for a Healthier You, is just what the doctor ordered.

It contains 71 days of devotions. Each day there is a key verse, short devotional and prayer. These are great for anyone whose schedule is maxed out. It doesn’t take any time at all, but you enter you day filled with scripture and inspiration. Peppered throughout the 71 days, there are also dashes of inspiration and some yummy recipes, complete with mouth-watering pictures.

Katie also includes four additional things to get you off on the right foot.

  • 10 Steps to a Healthier You: concise and practical
  • Prayers for Health: short prayers focused around a particular scripture
  • Identity Scriptures: directed at our true identity in Christ, these are essential for changing from the inside out
  • One Week Meal Plan: complete with grocery list and recipes

Healthier You is filled with wonderful tips and suggestions without being overwhelming. Beautiful photographs round out this book, which is certain to be a reference on my bookshelf. I encourage you to pick a copy for yourself or a friend.

Blessings for the Evening – Book Review


I am always looking for a great devotional for myself as well as for gifts. Therefore, when I had the opportunity to read and review Susie Larson’s devotional Blessings for the Evening, I was thrilled.

I love how Susie switched up the typical devotional by focusing on night, as your day is drawing to a close. It is a great way to replace the stress of the day with God’s peace.

Each devotion is placed over a beautiful picture. There is a scripture and short reading for each evening. The combination of the scripture, reading and picture brings about such peace and comfort. The reader gets a real sense of discovering God’s presence through this book.

I would definitely recommend this book as we enter into the Christmas season for yourself or a loved one.
