Book Review: Voices of the Faithful by Beth Moore

I was so excited when this book showed up on Book Sneeze as an available book to review. This is a compilation of daily devotions written by missionaries around the world. Each day of the year has a short, one page devotion written by a different missionary. Beth Moore writes an introduction to each month, which has a different theme, such as God's Character, Compassion, or Contentment. As the cover says, they really are inspirational stories and each day includes scripture and a prayer.
This book arrived a couple of weeks ago and I was waiting to review it until I used it for a while so I could give an honest review. I decided to read it with the kids too and I find myself looking forward to it each day. It is very well written, easy to read, and applicable, even to those of us living our comfortable lives in the US. I love that the kids are hearing about people out spreading Jesus' love to the nations - this is one thing each day that none of them have complained about doing. We also like to talk about their locations every day (they are listed at the end of each page). Maybe this will spark an interest in them to go into mission work. If nothing else, it reminds us that we can share God's love every day, right where we are, and that we need to be in daily prayer for those that are putting their lives on the line to get the Message to the ends of the earth.
