by 
AND MORE!

Book Description:

Release Date: March 24, 2015

Christians have long loved devotionals, but today’s Christians are also developing a strong love for fiction. They want to read stories about characters they can relate to, who experience situations similar to their own, and learn from those examples how to live out their faith. For them, life lessons are more easily absorbed this way. 

21 Days of Grace fits all of these needs. It is a collection of engaging, inspirational short fiction stories written by new, intermediate, and well-known authors including Angela Hunt, Deborah Raney, Cindy Woodsmall, Cecil Murphey, Robin Bayne, and more. 

Like Jesus’ parables, these stories deal with important life issues in a subtle, unpressured manner. And, as Jesus did, the authors follow up with life applications based on the stories, suggesting how the inherent lessons can be applied to the reader’s daily life.

Guest Post from Kathy Ide:
I’ve always loved Christian fiction, and I’ve seen the power of fiction to touch hearts and change lives, both firsthand and hearing about the experiences of others. But you know, in my quiet times with the Lord, reading a chapter from a novel just doesn’t seem quite appropriate. So a devotional with short fiction stories seemed like a great solution. And you can take these purse-sized devotionals wherever you go, to read when you have a few minutes of down time. It’s a great way to get “inspiration on the go.” And they make fantastic gifts for friends and loved ones.

My Opinion:
Nice Collection! :)  I really liked most of these stories, there were one or two that I didn't like very much, but for the most part they all had very thought provoking and interesting plots.  I loved that at the end each story there was a "Life Application" section, a "moral of the story" if you will! :)  I would have liked if they had started with the scripture like other devotionals do, but having them included throughout the stories was nice to! :)  Overall I enjoyed the thought provoking, Faith message filled, short stories, by well known and new authors a like! :)   

There are SO MANY Songs that go with this book....here are a few of them: "Even If" by MercyMe, "Eye of the Storm (feat.
