About the Author:

My thoughts:  

I thought God’s Promises for Tough Times was an excellent book.  it was short, but powerful, with only 30 devotions.  This book had devotions for many subjects, like resting in God, God understands, and a reason to rejoice. 

The section at the back of the book was great.  It listed verses to read when you have been betrayed, are grieving, lonely, etc.  It helped me several times.

I thought it was comforting to have a Bible verse at both the end and the beginning of each devotion.  It made the devotion flow well.  It is important to have Bible verses and not just Sheppard’s text, because we need to be learning from the Bible.

I think it would be great if there would be a prayer at the end of each devotion.  A prayer would help guide the reader in the direction they need to go.  It also might help them speak more with God.

I highly recommend this book to everyone.
