About the Book:
"Be still and know that I am God.” is one of the most beautiful verses from the Bible, but it’s not easy to practice in this busy world. Mornings with Jesus will help you do just that—“be still” in Jesus’ beautiful and powerful presence. For those who are seeking a deeper experience in their relationship with Christ, Mornings with Jesus offers a fresh perspective of who Jesus is (the Healer, the Son of God, the Comforter, the Good Shepherd) and what that means for day-to-day life. With a warm and friendly voice, 365 short devotional writings on the character and teachings of Jesus encourage readers to greet each day by drawing near to Him and inviting His presence into their day. Spend time with Jesus at the beginning of each day and experience His nearness and peace in a new way throughout the year. Each day’s selection includes: • a Bible verse • an entry based on Jesus: His words, miracles, and parables; His wisdom, compassion, and comfort; His mystery, power, divinity, and humanity • a “faith step” that will inspire and challenge readers to apply the day’s message to their lives.

My Review: 
This is a nice yearly devotional that can help you find encouragement as you start your day. Each contributor shares from their own perspective of where they are in relationship with Christ. Some you will related to better than others but be open to learn something from each of them. At the end of each days reading is what they call a Faith Step. For example on July 3, contributor Judy Baer writes, "Today take your friend Jesus with you wherever you go. think of Him as physically at your side in the coffee shop, at the library, at a meeting or anywhere you go." Another nice thing about this devotional is it includes a topical index at the back of the book. I would recommend this book for when you are in a rush and need that quick encouragement during your day!

I have just received Tricia Goyer's novel Along Wooded Paths. She is the only author I recognize. I would like to have this devotional to read during this leap year because it has 366 devotions and is for 2012.
I like devotions because they begin a central theme and you can continue your Bible study further on the Scriptures that pertain to the subject on that day for in-depth study. It is a nice jump-start place to begin.
