My take on this devotional:
I always like to use a devotional for a few weeks at least before I write a review in order to really get a feel for the writing and the type of devotions. With this one I found the presentation to be different and I liked it! First of all the devotional is written by several different people and each week focuses on a different topic. I really like sampling the variety of writers and the topical way the weeks are broken down. The pages are pretty standard, you get an opening scripture, the devotion and then a prayer. A ribbon marker is a nice addition. I like that there is a presentation page, making it a perfect gift. The cover makes it a stand out devotional on my shelf because it is such a pretty colored gray and feels buttery soft. I wouldn't hesitate to give this one as a gift.
