Because of its small size (7.1 x 5.2 x 0.8 in), this devotional is a great one for the car glove compartment, your diaper bag or your purse. Each devotional is easy to read and each one is so engaging.
Each entry is a true life story. Karen does in this devotion what she does so well in each of her novels; takes the reader into the world of the characters. Her writing is so engaging and you can feel God's spirit throughout this devotional. These short stories are not about strange people far away, they are about you, me, us, our neighbors or siblings, our parents. I feel as though I know these people Karen writes about. I feel she knows me as she writes!
I was not disappointed with Miracles and if you love Karen's work, you won't be disappointed either!
I found it very hard to read only one devotional each week. I read the whole book in about 5 days... so much for a 52 Devotion! (LOL) Now to on to read it again, this time only one devotion per week, so I can reflect on each entry properly!
