Miracles: Devotional Book Review and GIveaway

Miracles: A 52-Week Devotional

I'm so excited that it's finally here, just in time for a new year! My giveaway for The Karen Kingsbury's new devotional, Miracles. Thanks to Valerie and Hachette Book Group, I have FIVE copies of this AMAZING book!!!!

About the Book:

MIRACLES draws from five of Karen's most popular books, delivering readers a fresh word from God for each week. Each devotion is an excerpt from one of Karen's Miracle books, selected for the uplifting and strengthening message it offers. 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 at the same time. Of course, that's a Karen Kingsbury book - her fans know exactly what I mean. Now, I REALLY love to read and especially enjoy devotionals, little treats of stories that are quick to read and quickly warm your heart. This one does not disappoint. I read this straight through, more like a book than the weekly-devotional it is. Every story is uplifting and helps remind us that miracles happen, every day, to people just like you and me.

About the Author:

Bestselling author Karen Kingsbury is America 's #1 inspirational novelist. She's written more than forty novels, ten of which have hit #1 on bestseller lists. Her Center Street novel, This Side of Heaven, stayed on the New York Times bestseller list for several weeks. She lives in Washington State with her husband, Don, and their six children, three of whom are adopted from Haiti .

#3 I will take the tree down tomorrow. As much as I love fresh trees, once they start to die, my Asthma has a field day and I dislike fake trees!

I like Karen's book, called Every now and Then.. I really connected to the pain that was in Alex's heart, mostly because I have felt deep grief and emotional upheaval from losing a very important part of my life, as Alex did. But, like Alex, the chains of my heart that kept me from experiencing joy, were also removed and today, there is the ability to experience love that I never thought would ever be part of my thinking.. Good read...
Gonna post about your giveaway on my blogsite, http://www.karensthreadsofhope.blogspot.com right now...

The tree gets taken down usually about the 27th, due to having asthma, and the smell aggravates my lungs. But, I can not go without a fresh tree at the holidays, so lots of prayer for healthy breathing is always part of my morning, and evening routine.. Love the smells of Christ's birthday - but more importantly, LOVE Jesus for creating those smells, lol...

Blessings again, sister!

I usually take my Christmas tree down on New Years Day or close to it. I hate to do it tho because the room looks so bare. I usually leave up some of my snowmen since they can go into the new year (sometimes for months of snow)

Hi Shawnee...ok, I never knew you had a blog, but I think that I was drawn here because of the hearts desire the Lord placed in my heart for this New Year...my heart's desire to create more comfort Crock pot meals for my family. I thought of you...you probably didn;t know you did, but you inspired me to use the slow cooker more when you showed us how to make a taco crock pot meal. Then I knew I was in the right place when I saw your beautiful picture of God's covering in our church...the WHITE snow. Thanks for sharing...and as far as my favorite Kingsbury book, I have yet to read one...I'm sorry...I heard that I'm missing out. And when do I take my tree down? Not until well past New Years/Epiphany. But sadly this year, we bought the wrong kind of tree and it is drying more quickly than we would like...so it's down...now. God Bless you with a very happy new year Shawnee today and throughout. Sweet Blessings, Jenni

oops - that anonymous one above is from me! I did not mean to hit the button when I did.


Much love,

Well...where did my post go? I need a book called blogging for dummies. :-)

Let's try again - here is what I HAD written:

After reading Jenni's comment, I must ask for the recipe for the crockpot Taco dish. That is my son's favorite.

My favorite Karen series is the Redemption series. And of course I went on to read the 2 sequel series to it.

We have always kept our tree up until after New Years. Having been raised near Chicago, it was common tradition to attend Epiphany parties, so most trees did not come down until after January 7th.

Happy New Year dear friend...

Hi Shawnee!

I would LOVE to have a chance at owning Karen Kingsbury's devotional... I have only read one of her series - Redemption (thank you Kathy M!) but it was wonderful... I couldn't put it down!

Thank you for inspiring so many people - you are such a blessing!
