Beautiful devotion that combines Psalm 23 with the lives of missionaries

This devotion walks through the verses of Psalm 23 and interweaves them with the lives of both well known and lesser known missionaries. It's an insightful look at how this popular Psalm was applied in the lives of these historical men and women of God, but also how we can apply it to our lives in the present. Not only does it look at the Psalm itself, but also gives glimpses into the lives of the missionaries. Beautiful both in design and content!


Encouraging possibility

Cara’s writing is strikingly convicting, guiding and encouraging in God’s truth. This small but nutrient dense book is a gift entwining biblically relevant scripture acted out and through His saints, pointing upward to His power, Love and promises making tangible navigation and contemplation for us in this seemingly dark world. She writes from a lifetime of walking in Gods cultivated wisdom, imbued with her integrity. She is a great mentor; a woman of grace, compassion and impeccable faith and encouragement in our own walk with our magnificent LORD Jesus!


A fresh devotional

The author has such a beautiful way of pulling you into the story of each of the missionaries she highlights. You get a front row seat to see how the Lord spoke to them through His word and their life experiences. There are additional scriptures and questions that you can reflect on at the end of each chapter. This is a great read to switch up your morning devotional time and could also be something to read with a friend or spouse to encourage conversation.


Great Encouragement

I highly recommend this book as a daily devotional. It is well written and engaging. The stories of these missionaries were inspiring and encouraging to my own walk with Christ. The questions posed at the end of each chapter were thought provoking.
