The Lucado Inspirational Reader by: Max Lucado {Book Review}

I received this complimentary copy from the  BookSneeze review program. I love Max Lucado…always have! Over many years my mother has accumulated almost all of his books, many I have read! While visiting her home with my family I told her that I would love to take all the Max Lucado books and read them! I am a fairly quick reader, but there is no way that I would be able to read all these wonderful books…then came The Lucado Inspirational Reader!! It is a wonderful book!! This collection is fantastic for busy moms that may only have a few free minutes each day. As a mom of 3, I am constantly going. I rarely sit down!! But no matter where I am, I can pick up this reader and get a short & encouraging word within 5 minutes or less.
The other night I was unable to sleep. I was kept awake with thoughts of a dear friend who was having surgery the next morning. I knew my friend was afraid, although the surgery was going to be routine other health concerns posed a issue thus putting my friend at high risk. I wanted to send some kind of encouraging words, knowing that although last my friends was for sure still awake. I decided to read the section “Encouragement” I was in tears within 5 minutes. I picked up the book to find the right thing to say to my friend {which I did} but the Lord had more planned! I was given the encouragement that I needed. I had be struggling emotional that night and the Lord spoke to me through Max and showed me that HE is always there no matter where, no matter when! Including the section of encouragement there are 27 different sections. You can read this book from front to back or you can read the section that you are personally needing at that time. Either way you will be blessed and encouraged!
With Christmas coming so quickly, this would make an awesome gift!!
I highly recommend it to anyone especially to busy moms like me who do not think they have time to read. I love the size of this book, it easily fits in my purse!
*I was given a copy of this book to review from the publisher for free in return for a honest review! This review is my own opinion.
