Miracles: A 52 Week Devotional Review & Giveaway!



I love to read! Especially good, Christian fiction. One of my all time favorite writers is best-selling author, Karen Kingsbury. I have read ALL of her books! And she has written many of them! And I loved them all.

Karen Kingsbury writes in such a way to show all the various human emotions and how through both good and bad times in life we can hold onto hope in Christ Jesus. She is not afraid to tackle tough issues in her books as well, including infidelity, abortion, the consequences of drunk driving, death and dealing with illness as a family. Kingsbury even tackled the subject of 9/11 in One Tuesday Morning and Beyond Tuesday Morning.

When I had the opportunity to review her upcoming release, Miracles: A 52 Week Devotional, I could not pass up the opportunity.

Miracles: A 52 Week Devotional is a compilation of devotionals from her Miracles Treasury Series. This series includes:

**A Treasury of Adoption Miracles
**A Treasury of Miracles for Friends
**A Treasury of Miracles for Women
**A Treasury of Miracles for Teens
**A Treasury of Christmas Miracles

The stories in these books are all based on actual events and will make you laugh, and cry. Not unusual for a Karen Kingsbury book - those of you who have read them, know exactly what I mean:) Warning: Have tissues nearby anytime you read Kingsbury's books, you will use them.

Though this book is set up as a weekly devotional, I read through it like a book. Very easy to read, as most of Kingsbury's books are. Each story was a wonderful reminder of the majesty and grace of Jesus Christ.

Miracle's: A 52 Week Devotional is only 5"x7" so is perfect to have in your purse, diaper bag or carry on bag during travel. It also will be the perfect gift for any Kingsbury fan!

Miracles: A 52 Week Devotional is set for release November 5, 2009 and is available for pre-order at Amazon.ca, Amazon.com and ChristianBook.com

And for all you Karen Kingsbury Fans out there, Shades of Blue will be in stores on October 20th, 2009 (stand alone title). As well, Take 3 (Above The Line Series) will be available March 23, 2010.

  77. Karen Kingsbury truly does write "Life Changing Fiction". I love her books... one that, in some ways, haunted me was One Tuesday Morning from her Sept 11th series. Christian fiction puts the teachings of Christ into an everyday, modern context for me.

    Thank you for the opportunity to win a devotional.
