The key to having a positive, happy, faith-filled day is to start each morning setting your mind in the right direction. It's easy to lie in bed thinking, "I don't feel like going to work. I don't want to deal with these children. I didn't exercise yesterday." We don't realize it, but that's setting the tone for a lousy day. If you don't intentionally set the tone for the day, negative thoughts will set it for you.

I've had the book on Audible for less than a month. I've listened to the entire thing at least 6 times. Luckily at my job, I'm able to listen to headphones. Not that there is anything majorly devastating going on in my life right now. It's just that when you listen to the first couple of devotionals, it's hard to not want to hear more. So regardless of a bad day or a good day, I will listen sometimes for the entire 8 hour work day.

Each time I start over, I find something new I may have missed a previous time. When Victoria is citing various scriptures, I find myself mouthing the words along with her. It instills hope, happiness and determination in my mind daily. Her words, ideas and thoughts are fervently backed up with Biblical truth. What an enjoyable way to learn scripture while pertaining to every day life at the same time.

Definitely a must have for anyone seeking hope, inspirational and guidance from our Holy Bible. If someone with an awful attention span such as myself can get it through it roughly 6 times in less than a month, then it's an easy listen for an avid reader. I compare this book to my favorite daily devotional, "Jesus Calling" by Sarah Young. They are now both my favorite devotionals that I never tire of listening to or reading.

You will not be disappointed!!
