Book Review: 25,000 Mornings

25,000 Mornings: Ancient Wisdom for a Modern World, by Fay Rowe is a Christian devotional book.

According to the book, the author shares, "A few years ago, a television ad for the state of Michigan said we have 25,000 morning, give or take a few.  Michigan has given us 68,49 years....  I've lived a considerable number of mornings already, and I've learned a few things about life.  One of the most important things I've learned about life is this: We need God in it."

The devotionals are based on personal reflections and antidote by the author, as well as cultural references and biblical stories.  25,000 Mornings is written in a straightforward manner that's easy to read and a way to spend a few minutes each day.

In the book, the author states, "One way to ensure we keep God in our lives is to keep him in our days.  I'm convinced that as we start each day by turning our thoughts to him and his ways it will help us live our very best life, and our thousands of days will be filled with his goodness.  As we spend the next few mornings together, I hope these simple devotional offerings helps you begin your morning with a sense of joy and peace, and with expectation for what God has for you--and has for you to do--in the rest of your day."

There are over 150 chapters (or devotionals) that are grouped into several sections.  Some of the section titles include the following: Starting Out or Starting Over, Believing Words, Never Giving Up, Resting on the Rock, Talking to God, Something We Can't Earn, Living the Plan. Getting It Right, Being Yourself and Living with People, and Clocks and Calendars.

These are quick devotionals to read, along with a scripture verse to mediate throughout the day.

While this book is applicable for young adults to older generations, it's geared more towards newer Christians or those wanting a lighter look at scriptures.

Note: I received this book from Book Look Bloggers, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
