This devotional covers 100 different devotions focused on our giving thanks. Each devotion ranges from 1-2 pages, and ends with a question to consider and a few lines to jot down your thoughts. There is a scripture to start each devotion. There's also a Table of Contents, so you can mark the ones which really speak to your heart and soul. I have really come to appreciate devotionals which do not take so much time, but have meat within them. This devotion fits that bill perfectly.
It's a hardcover book, with beautiful pictures on every page. This book would make for a great present for yourself or another person. It would be a great way to start the day or even to end the day.

They are very nice shorts stories of young Amish men and women who are searching to find happiness and relationships as them move into adulthood.
The four stories are ~
Building Trust - Grace Miller and Joel King are in love. They’ve dated secretly for the past year and when he proposes marriage, Grace accepts. But when she tells her parents about the wedding, she’s shocked when her father tells her she can’t marry Joel.
A Heart Full of Love (also in An Amish Cradle) - Ellie’s mother hasn’t stopped meddling in her personal life since Ellie lost her sight — and she’s taken it up a notch now that Ellie’s pregnant. When Ellie gives birth to twins, her mother insists on moving in to care for them. But when her mother’s behavior becomes unbearable, Ellie is forced to take a stand . . . and finally find out why she can’t let go.
Surprised by Love - In a desperate move to evade her match-making mother, Emily Schwartz announces that she’s already seeing someone: Reuben Coblentz. The trouble is, Reuben is barely even a friend. Seeing how desperate she is, Reuben plays along. But what happens when the past sneaks up on them?
A Gift for Anne Marie (also in An Amish Second Christmas) - Anne Marie and Nathaniel have been best friends since they were kids. Now things are evolving . . . in ways everyone else predicted long ago. But when her mother suddenly decides to remarry in another state, Anne Marie’s new chapter with Nathaniel looks doomed to end before it begins.
If you enjoy short stories and Amish stories, then this is a great book to read.
