It’s time again for another book giveaway. Once again, I’m featuring a Guideposts devotional book, the new Mornings with Jesus 2017 devotional. For my fifth year now, I’ve been privileged to join a team of other gifted writers to compose the Mornings with Jesus devotionals, including this one.
Studying the life of Jesus and reading and learning more about Him each year as I write these devotions has deepened my love and passion for Christ even more. And every year as I experience more of His love and grace, Jesus grows even more precious to me. He is so faithful!
I am pleased to share this opportunity with you. Be sure and read the excerpt; then comment below to enter the devotional book giveaway drawing. Read more

“My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” John 14:23
Everyone wants–and needs–a place to belong. We all like to fit in.
Too many try too hard–and in all the wrong places.
But you already have a place in God the Father’s heart.
There, you will always find acceptance as His child.
There, you’ll have access to all the rooms.
There, you’ll find fellowship with Him daily.
If you’ve said yes to His invitation, to follow Jesus with all your heart, you are a part of the family of God!
Where else can you find a safe refuge and a place to be yourself?
Where else can you rest your cares and worries?
Where else can you enjoy a life of purpose and joy?
Jesus paid the price with His own death so you could have forgiveness, acceptance, and unconditional love.
There’s one place you’ll always belong.
You’re always at home in the Father’s heart.
-Rebecca Barlow Jordan

Time for another book giveaway–one that combines a Bible and devotional in the same package! New to Guideposts, the Mornings with Jesus Daily Bible offers a 365-day plan for reading through the Bible in one year. It’s an easy way to share each day with the One Who knows you best.
I love giving books away, and Guideposts sent me an extra copy of this wonderful Bible. So I wanted to pass one along to one of my readers.
This Bible offers daily readings from the Old Testament, New Testament, Proverbs, and Psalms, along with daily encouragements, prayers, and faith steps that draw you closer to Jesus and fill you with His love and light. Many of my devotions are included in this Bible, along with other writers from the past Mornings with Jesus devotionals.
