I have mixed opinion on this one. It wasn't like it was terrible. But I can honestly say that this authors writing style isn't for me. And some of the words that was used, seemed a little old-fashioned for me. To me it was skim the surface devotions and some examples that wasn't relatable to me. Not all the days were like that, but most of them. This is certainly a devotion designed for a older generation of Christian women, which is okay. But just not for me.
“Finding Jesus in Everyday Moments” is everything I need and love in a daily devotional. Real life stories, scripture, prayer and a place to make notes, make this a wonderful addition to daily devotional time. Anne Cetas brings her impressive background, experience, and many blessings to this faith-filled book, creating a timeless and beautiful devotional that you will surely enjoy.
Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for the advanced copy! The first page immediately drew me in with the real story, room to journal and "Key Words from the Word". I enjoyed how this devotional followed that pattern throughout the whole devotional. This would be the perfect introduction to someone who is looking to grow a relationship with God but not sure where to start. I could see how this devotional might not appeal to everyone in terms of some of the verbiage but I think it achieves the objective of creating a timeless devotional to strengthen your personal relationship and discovering Jesus Moments in the ordinary.
I loved this devotional; it was very unique. I read it as an ebook through netgalley. It was unique in the sense that each devotion is a story about different people and their relationship with Jesus. I also liked that each devotion had a prayer, song or action included in it.
I really enjoyed this devotional. I have many daily devotionals but I loved that this does not correspond to specific dates and could be started at any time. However, what would have been amazing is if this could have been 365 days so it could be used for an entire year instead of just 100days. Honestly though, this is simply because I enjoyed going through these daily devotions so much and would have loved for it to last longer.
I loved this book, and will be buying it in hardback, I have it currently as an eBook. I am newish to study Jesus and the Bible, and how this is perfectly broken down daily is exactly what I need. If you are new to learning about the Bible, this step by step, book is wonderful. There are daily passages from the Bible, with stories, or quotes, and the icing on the whole thing for me was the reflection questions and space to journal (which is why I want to start this book over again so I can journal in it.) I feel that even if you have done studies before, this will still help you in your daily reflection of God's word,
Each chapter begins with "The Context," giving the Bible passage being looked at. Includes a Bible verse, story, thought, "Jesus Moment" with a reflection question and space to journal. Chapters end with either a list of Bible verses, lyrics from a song, inspiring words, additional questions, a prayer, or action steps. At two pages, this would make a good daily devotional book.

I usually don’t review books if I haven’t finished them and especially if I only made it a tiny bit through but since this book is a devotional I thought my review was still valid. This is a 100 day devotional journal and I only made it through Day 12. I don’t think that the devotionals were relevant to the daily scripture and they definitely weren’t very relatable. They were mostly just examples that felt outdated and most of the ones that I read had to do with things children said which, while cute, doesn’t help me grow my faith at all. This was especially disappointing because the introduction to this devotional raved about how this person digs deep into the hard questions and I found that to be completely untrue. There was a couple of days that touched on grief and suffering but it didn’t answer anything and as someone who has felt grief deeply I didn’t gain anything from it. There is also a journal aspect of this devotional and this part really felt like someone phoned it in. The questions were very basic and broad and coupled with a devotional that brought nothing of value it felt like I was having to do all the work. Which I guess you could say is the point of the journal but for me I prefer where I learned a scripture and had someone relate it to my life and then I can expand on that for myself. Rather than here is a scripture and some words that mean nothing to me and oh yea here are some questions you can answer. When really the author of this book should have answered those questions and I could maybe have gotten something of value from it. This is clearly something that I don’t recommend and it has made me more hesitant about trying out something from Our Daily Bread Publishing in the future. This book really comes across as something that was thrown together in a short amount of time with no intentional thought or caring put into it. Thankfully, there are more really great devotionals out there and I will just concentrate on the ones I’m currently working through before trying anything new.
Thank you for the opportunity to read this book. It really struck home for me at times. It is great for Christians of every level.
For each day of this 100 day devotional, the entry includes a Bible verse, a short story about the day's topic, the lesson for the day, in large print and surrounded by a box so you don't miss it, questions for you to reflect on, along with blank space to fill in your answers, and closing quotes, which may come from Scripture, a hymn, or something similar. The subtitle of this book states that it is a devotional for women, but I think men could get just as much out of it as women. The devotional covered a lot of the common tenets of Christianity, mostly Jesus-centered. The questions were good for reflecting on how to make sure you are living your life in a way that honors Jesus. It ticks off all the boxes I would expect from a good devotional. Many thanks to NetGalley for providing me an ARC of this book.
I received an ARC from Our Daily Bread Publishing, via NetGalley. This review is my personal opinion. With an accessible approach, Anne Cetas want us through this devotional one us to go deeper in our relationship with Jesus in our daily life. Each day we find a specific bible verse, a small reflection, and several questions to help us to spend more time with the Bible while journaling. Although these devotions are short, which is great if you are busy, you can do a daily devotion, if you have more time, you can easily work with more than one. Also, I think this book could be a great gift for new believers who wants to start studying the bible but find the idea overwhelming, this book could be a great start.
I really liked this book. It spoke to me. Many topics all people can relate too. A great addition to any inspirational reading collection. A fresh look at topics that impact us all. Very pleased with this book.
Absolutely adorable. I love that you can record your thoughts and reflections within the pages of the book. And it is so pretty within the pages.
What a great bible study book. It is not for the faint of heart or those looking for a quick one page read before setting out on their day. It is very good to start a 15-30 minute bible study. Thank you to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I love starting each day by reading a devotional for reflection and inspiration. Anne Cetas' Finding Jesus in Everyday Moments is the perfect book for both. In each chapter, Cetas shares a story and biblical passages along with Jesus Moments, inspiring and key words, prayers, and actions. Finding Jesus in Everyday Moments will be a devotional book I will keep and return to many times to help with my spiritual journey.
