FaithApproved has offered me another great item to review. This week I had the privilege of reviewing a book. The book is Prepare Your Heart for A Great Christmas.
Written by Maria Rodgers O’Rourke. Her goals for you to get out of this devotional:
- Peace in your heart throughout your busy days
- Gratitude for the simple blessings in your life
- Joy in rediscovering the anticipation of Christmas
- Love for yourself, your family and everyone you touch
- Insights to carry the spirit of Christmas into the New Year

Now the devotional actually starts tomorrow. So in honor of Thanksgiving and Preparing your heart for Christmas think of
Daniel 3:89. Give Thanks to the Lord for He is good.
What are you thankful for?
I am thankful for my children. Miles had a difficult birth and I’m so very thankful that God let him stay on this earth with us.
If you go through this thought process before you begin each day perhaps you can start off your day in a better mood. Enjoy your cup of coffee and take a few moments for yourself. Let me help you by offering a copy of this book. There are dates for this devotional, but Christmas should be celebrated in our hearts all year round. Let’s be grateful, prayerful, joyful and peaceful all year round. But since it is the Holidays I wish you all a happy one!
