“I love this devo! Using (LOL) laugh out loud personal experiences, author Jo Russell skillfully weaves Scripture into the craziness of real life and encourages the reader to apply Biblical principles to her own harried everyday life. An uplifting and smile-provoking read!”

Fun and Humorous! User ID: MimiWoo (U of Alaska)
This book is lots of fun with great lessons available at the end of each week for study. I liked that I could read it for the humor, then go back and use it as a individual study. I also like that the author writes in plain language as if I were talking with her personally. Great for women in all stages of life.

Great Devotional! User ID: bonbon84 (New Life Pregnancy Center)
I read the first day’s pages and didn’t want to stop. I like the real world stories paired with Bible verses. I can relate to a lot of the stories. I am a mom to a busy 3 year old, work part-time and volunteer, this book allows me to get a compact, inspirational quiet time in during my busy day.
