What an amazing devotional. I read it in a day. Once I started I had a hard time putting it down. I loved all the stories, quotes, & bible versus. They talk about God's Grace. They also give you a lot of great ideas & things to do to help out friends. They also talked about Hospitality. The quote I liked on that subject was "Do Not Forget To Entertain Strangers, For By So Doing Some People Have Entertained Angels Without Knowing It." Wow! There are places you can write "A Peep or Two from You!" Everything that they talk about they give you bible versus to look up. I would recommend this book to anyone. This book is a great uplifting book. Very happy that I read it.
