Reviewing "Blessings for the Evening: Finding Peace in God's Presence"

"Blessings for the Evening" by Susie Larson is an absolutely beautiful book. Meant to be a nightly devotional, every page is filled with gorgeous photos paired with Bible verses and a blessing to read before you put your head down on your pillow.  It's so well done that upon opening it, there is a general feeling of peace that seems to spill out of the book. 
I can't gush enough about how great the book is and how excited I was when I first laid eyes on it.  When I received it in the mail, it went straight into my nightstand where it will stay for many evenings to come, I'm sure.  I would recommend "Blessings for the Evening" to anybody who wants to go to sleep concentrating on God's many blessings instead of the worries of the day. It would also make a great gift!

Here's a short description of the book from the publisher:
"Feel the concerns of your day fade away through the reassuring promises of God. These blessings offer refreshment to your soul and a biblical perspective to your thoughts.

 Borne from Susie Larson's own bouts with nighttime worries, each blessing and related Scripture is a daily, soothing reminder of God's love and mercy."

Disclaimer: I received this book from Bethany House in exchange for an honest review.

Dawn, thank you so much for reviewing Susie's book. I'm the editor, and I loved your comment about peace spilling out of the devotionals. That's what we hoped! Thanks again for letting people know about it. We're very proud to publish it with Susie.
