I went into this devotional wondering how much I would appreciate the book. I know the author has a LDS background, but let me put your mind to rest. This is a devotional that will appeal to Christian moms from all walks of life. The Bible is the only thing that is quoted, and experiences from Jesus' life are used as a basis for each day of the devotional. This devotional is perfect for Easter, but it also perfect for any time of the year. As moms, we often struggle to find time to study the Bible. This book can help. Each day's reading provides a Scripture and a practical thought for the day. There is always a question to ask yourself at the end based on the passage for the day. It would only take a mom about one minute to read the day's devotional. And then you can spend the rest of your day applying the truth.It is safe to say that I was completely impressed with the author and this book. Her simple devotionals were challenging and yet written from the perspective of a real-life mother (she has 7 children, after all!). I highly recommend this book and plan to keep it as one of many devotionals I read now and then.I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, an all opinions are 100 percent mine.
This will help you to see all that the Savior has done for us! A life changer. There is a short lesson for everyday. Each tells in scripture passage what the Savior has done, and each are related to everyday modern life experiences. It gives a totally new perspective, and when done, will take 40 days to complete. The author did an amazing job!
Its been a couple of days since purchasing the eBook and I have saw the character of Christ, who He is in His character and actions. After reading each devotion I am focused on Christ. She pairs the daily struggles we face next to Christ and you really know you can do it with His help and the Word.Great for reflections in preparation for Resurrection Sunday, and year round.I mean we should focus on Jesus year round, right?
These 40 thoughts are perfect--they are all Christ-centered, not too long nor too short--and bind together moments & attributes of Christ we know through scripture with moments and attributes we have & want to have in our personal lives. Women of any faith will easily connect with Sokol's messages, but I'd recommend it to men and young people as well. Consider reading together as couples or families.
40 Days with the Savior is a 40-day devotional designed to be read in the days leading to Easter, but it could be read at any time throughout the year. It is a short book, made up of one-page daily readings, each dedicated to a specific characteristic of Christ. Think of it as an updated version of "WWJD" from a few years ago. Each reading ends with the author asking the reader to reflect upon how they, the reader, can show more of that particular characteristic in their own life.The devotionals include: *He Sacrified for Others *He Turned from Materialism *He Did the Right Thing *He Influenced Others for GoodAnyone looking for a new devotional and looking to be more like Jesus will enjoy this book. Normally, I delete review copies from my e-reader (it only holds so much, you know), but I will be keeping this one to read again and again. If your goal is to be a kinder and happier person, buy a copy for yourself, and buy a second copy to share with a friend.5 starsDisclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Book Blasts and Blog Tours Hosted by I Am a Reader, Not a Writer book review bloggers program.

This book is a great stand alone book, but I think it is especially fitting for Easter and Christmas in preparing spiritually for these two occasions. Reading it one day at a time makes you really ponder and put into works the ideas and suggestions in the book.I really got a lot out of it.
It's hard to review a devotional. I know that may sound odd, and I didn't really realize it until I started to review this, but quite frankly, besides just being written well there is a lot of objectivity in these. Does the author believe what I believe? Does the author have the same view of references and events that I do? And of course, am I really giving the daily readings my full attention?Well, luckily, Ms Sokol and I had some wonderful devotions together. Yes, I loved her devotions, but I found that when I could really devote myself to her writing that each day was a bit brighter.The only real issue I had with this was a formatting issue and I'm pretty positive that was due to receiving an unformatted (ha!) ARC.
With Christmas gone, and Easter coming up, this was the perfect book to sit down and read. Each "day" we read about a different aspect that Christ had, and Connie Sokol explains how she sees those same aspects in her own life. Then she encourages us to find the same.I loved reading this. Anyone who is Christian (doesn't matter the actual faith) will find this book enlightening.See the review at [...]
