Review

As for myself, I loved Dance’s creative chapter titles! She shows a great deal of creativity in crafting her writing.

As a fellow blogger, I enjoyed her description of her blogging journey and the impact it had over her life. Dance is relatable, open and authentic.

She effectively uses the teachable moments in her life to teach, help and encourage others. Incorporating media and literature of today with her story, was a treat.

I enjoyed my journey through her book and would highly recommend it for Christian women.

Review

As for the book itself, it’s small, durable, perfect for on the go devotionals at the coffee shop.

The beautiful artwork and word art make the book more appealing and nurture a sense of serenity.

With varying lengths of pages day to day, it is still short enough to fit into any schedule. I highly recommend this well-made devotional.
