The Power of Having the Lord In Your Life As A Christian
For wanting to illustrate to her readers the Lord’s promise regarding His faithfulness to protect them according to what is written in the verses of PSALM 23, is the reason I’ve given the author and her endeavor here, the 5 STARS she’s garnered from this rather voracious reviewer of Christian books.

Beautifully Written and Inspiring
I can't believe I never knew of these amazing missionaries. This book tells their stories in a way that both captures their righteousness and captures God's abounding faithfulness. The short stories are perfect because I need a daily reminder of how I should be serving God, and how he will provide the ways for me to do so.
Real-life examples of the truths found in Psalm 23
Cara merges the beautiful truths in Psalms 23 with stories of heroes of the Faith in a way that makes both comforting and encouraging stories for all ages. I have been studying scripture my entire life. I have always thought of the "rod" as something to keep the sheep(us) in line, but as Cara so carefully shares, the rod is our protection, and the staff is to draw us closer to our shepherd. This is a wonderful application of God's word.
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!
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
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.
