Review: Love Food and Live Well--Overeating as a Spiritual Problem
Book Review: Hand of Fate, Not a Cozy Mystery

Review: Shared Hope, Inspiration for a Woman's Soul


By Circle of Friends

Shared Hope for typepad The description of Circle of Friends describes it as a “non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging women to find and follow Christ.” The feminine, flower-strewn design includes a page to write your name and that of a receiver to give it as a gift.  With 90 pages, it isn’t a daily devotional. It’s a three-month devotional. I read it quickly to review, but each morning I plan to read one message again, to start my day. These messages will give each morning a lift before I get into the hard work of living. 

You will recognize some of the names here, such as Beth Moore and Corrie Ten Boom. Others you won’t know.

 The style and quality of the message differs with each writer, though every lesson has value. Two or three were too intellectual. I went away saying, “What?” Others told of incidents from the writer’s life. In a few cases, the writer used a story of personal pain or joy. Some passed the ultimate test. They made me cry with tears of recognition or sympathy. 

This pleasant book is worth reading or giving to a friend as a gift.
