Saturday Book Review

Days of Diamonds by Bill Kraski

Days of Diamonds is a 14 day monthly devotional ebook by blogger and author Bill Kraski. The book begins at the beginning of the year and follows us through the first two weeks of the year. Every day has its own Bible verse and devotional, there is also a prayer thought for every day.

I have been following Bill's blog for a while and knew his wisdom and love for Christ. I had high expectations for his devotionals. The books has been everything I expected and more. It has made my morning devotionals more beautiful and profound. The Bible verses are well chosen and thought through, the devotionals are made to bring you closer to God and the Truth. And the prayer thought concentrates it all so you can commune with God the thoughts that were risen from your heart.

One of my favorites were Day 4 with thoughts on our seek to be new men at the beginning of the year. The praeyr thought for the day is for God "to show us what He made us, originally". Another favorite of mine, and something I actually highlighted so I could blog about it later on, was Day 5 with a text from Proverbs.

The devotional is short but profound, it touched my heart and made me yearn even more closeness with God. There is such beauty in burning the unnecessary and purifying yourself as a sacrifice to God.

Another amazing feature was Bill's posts in his blog. He followed through the theme during the whole month and helped us even deeper to the love of God. Purifying and polishing ourselves and our faith like Diamonds, a perfect gift to offer to God.

    1. It's not surprising that you haven't heard of the book. I've only been blogging since 2008, And I've only been writing books since last year. I've intentionally made the devotionals inexpensive because I want people to see how much the God really cares for us. Once we have a handle on that, everything starts edging toward downright awesome.

  21. Joanna, thanks for the wonderful review. And those were my two favorite days, too. There's real power in understanding that we are who God says we are, not who we think we are.
