Are you something of a perfectionist? Do you have difficulty waiting patiently? Do you feel a need to “fix” every problem for everybody? Do you have an inner voice constantly telling you that you aren’t good enough? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then you will enjoy this little devotional book.
Each devotion (there are 40) includes a meditation by one of the authors, a blessing or a prayer, a suggestion for taking a “good enough” step in deepening our spiritual life, and a quote. The message is that we don’t have to be perfect, we just need to keep going in the right direction. We need to focus on what we can do today rather than on an ideal that we may never attain.
VERDICT: 5 STARS. I’ve been using this as part of my morning Lenten devotions, and I like it so much that I’m planning to check out other books by Kate Bowler. She has written two memoirs, Everything Happens for a Reason and No Cure for Being Human.
