"The Love As A Way of Life" by Gary Chapman and Elisa Stanford

I'm reviewing 4 separate books this week on love,marriage,relationships for a blog tour.
I don't usually buy these types of books so I thought it would be a change when they asked me to review them. I also thought it was very timely what with Valentine's Day and Darrell's birthday.

My first one is this "The Love As A Way Of Life" Devotional

I find devotionals helpful in quiet time. They are a quick way to get your focus on God.
I like this one because it takes different subjects such as humility,patience,kindness,etc. and groups them together.
Each day starts with a scripture verse. It then follows with a very short story that is relevant. Each one ends with a prayer or a thought.
It's a 90 day book but you can use it in a variety of ways. It's not date oriented which I like. It's a very simple way to daily remind yourself about love whether it's first thing in the morning or the last thing at night.
