This is an amazing book.....we have used this book every morning for the past 5-7 years reading the thoughts and studying all the references given. It makes a great devotional time. We have recommended it to many and especially families who might be looking for a devotional moment with their family along with even singing the hymn. This book has become a treasure to us and we are so grateful for it. We are presently on our third copy. The soft back book itself breaks down after use and needs to be replaced....but it is worth it.
