Then there are “Points to Ponder” with some questions you can answer in a journal style, writing in your thoughts about the reading for that week.
Each week ends with “Actions for the Week” that gives you prompts on how you can apply the lessons you read to make your life more joyful, peaceful, and positive.
Some weeks have a “This Is My Prayer” section, with a prayer written out that you can pray for yourself.
I love how this book talks about going after your dreams in faith, relying on God for every need, trusting His purpose for your life, and releasing stress and bitterness to embrace peace and joy. The writing prompts and action for the week are really thoughtful and help the reader to be more mindful with their reading. It’s really inspiring, and makes me want to pick up the Bible and read and pray!
I also like that the reading selections don’t go in chronological order, but jump around from Old to New Testaments and the Psalms, so you get a little of everything each week, but organized loosely by topic.
The illustrations are done in this beautiful watercolor style and they show pretty plants, clear skies of sunshine, people raising their arms in praise, strong trees growing by a river, a warrior maiden who holds up a shield of faith or plants a seed of happiness. Or sometimes the illustration is just an everyday object like a clock or a cup of coffee. I love the color scheme and the gorgeous designs!
