This book is beautifully put together as you can see!
Powerful messages along with alluring pictures adorn this book!
I LOVE the 5 principles the authors chose to focus on-- while they are not new I was captured with the intriguing way they were presented-- a way that helps you understand more of what it is that will truly bring you lasting joy.
Some I already live by, and some I need to work on...
But as the back of the blurb says: "He knows your heart ~ Live your life so you can come to know HIS."
This book can help you do just that!
A PERFECT GIFT-BOOK, or BOOK CLUB BOOK, or just a book to STUDY ON YOUR OWN. These principles have the power to change lives :)
I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS ONE!

This is the kind of book that is short and powerful!! When you wake up in the morning, what kind of day are you expecting? Could it be different? Better? "Maybe today you will step out of your routine and step into the soul-satisfying life." (p. 3)
The authors share five holy patterns to follow that will make a difference. I loved the way they laid them out. There are questions to reflect on and quotes that relate to each pattern. The quotes are from a variety of people, like Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Robert Frost and more. I love how they include Jesus Christ and use examples from his life to show how the patterns will work in our lives.
This book doesn't take long to read but applying the principles will take time and effort in order to see positive results. It's the type of book to read when you're feeling discouraged and are ready to make lasting changes or even when life is pretty good but you're ready to take it to the next level. It's beautifully illustrated and is full of hope and inspiration! It's a fantastic book to share with others!!

Sometimes life feels routine with me feeling like I'm just barely making through each day. Maybe Today addresses that feeling by sharing five ways that life can become more 'soul-satisfying'. None of these ideas are new, but sometimes it helps to be reminded of the things in life that are most important. I enjoyed the stories and comparisons that the authors make in the book. For example, Tilt Your Soul refers to flight and how planes and birds tilt their wings in order to take off and fly. That tilting is compared to tilting one's soul upwards toward's God and His Son, Jesus Christ, through prayer. The other topics covered are scripture study (Let Down Your Bucket--living water), service (Seek a Compassionate Detour), gratitude (Take Off Your Shoes), and commitment (Be All In). This is a beautiful gift book that reminds the reader that setting one's priorities can lead one from the ordinary and routine to a soul-satisfying life.
