Loved it! It's uplifting, inspiring and I have come out of this study not only closer to my Heavenly Father but hopefully, a slightly better person then when I started it a month ago.

This was my first time reading one of Kerry's devotionals and I was blown away by it! This devotional was so beautiful and it had me journaling in my prayer journal for hours.
