Rated 5 out of 5 by Unique Perspective Offers Comfort My mother received this book as a gift, so I picked up her copy to peruse because of the unusual title. Mom immediately began telling me how much she enjoyed its daily devotions, so I read a few, really liked the perspective of "hearing Jesus talking directly to me," and decided to get my own copy. I am now in my second year of using it daily for morning devotions: the devotions are labeled sequentially by month and day, without a specified year, so the book is easily reusable year after year. Sometimes the meditations are so powerful or so appropriate for my current situation that I remind myself these are not actually Jesus' words but the author's, but then I look up the Bible references on which the text is based (included with each day's message) and find that the Biblical material is faithfully and truthfully incorporated with inspirational wisdom that addresses my thoughts and reactions as a human being. Jesus already has spoken the concepts to us Biblically, and the author applies her knowledge of human experience and psychology to personalize them for the typical modern reader, offering comfort, the reassurance of being understood and forgiven, and strategies for acknowledging Jesus as our constant Companion to whom we can turn all day long, every day, no matter what happens. This is an especially comforting and inspirational gift for someone who is facing difficult times. November 16, 2014
