As a pastor, I am not in want of options for daily devotions nor liturgies to engage. As a spouse, I am always on the hunt for one that engages us as a couple but meets both of our needs. I found it in this book. Each morning, coffee in hand, we grab a bible and this book and turn to the entry for the day- taking time to pray, share, read, and sing. I am appreciative of the attentiveness to season, as well as an awareness that for many folks, taking more than 20 minutes in the morning is just not going to happen. Each day is written in a way which allows you to quickly and effortlessly move through a pattern of worship and devotion. The days stand alone, but when used regularly, build upon themselves, as do the readings.
Personally I have paired it with my journal/coloring Bible so that if I want to spend more time in that text, I have space right there.
I love this book so much I have begun recommending it all over the place. My day begins with my Liturgical Calendar, this book, and my Bible and the three are my centering for the day. I can tell when one is missing.
I am a tactile person and I like the use of a textured cover and the useful sewn in page marker. I appreciate that I can use this year after year and not be limited because it was tied to a day of the week and date, but instead is simply dated.
My sole complaint is the use of only masculine language for God- it is aggressively present. I hope in future editions, we will see more non-gendered language for God.
