Call it a Bible study on the book of the Bible - Philippians. Call it a Bible commentary. Or call it a daily devotional. Out of a four year reading and studying of the entire Bible, comes these honest and provocative thoughts from the book of Philippians, a book in the New Testament. It is not written by a Bible scholar, nor a minister, missionary or even a teacher. No, it is written by a person you can relate to even more. It is written by a person who is someone like YOU.

Surprised to find this as informative as it is considering the brevity. Great high level overview and honest in the interpretation.

NPR says listeners have to listen for at least three years before they will actually make a contribution. For me it was listening to Dave Ramsey for the last 20 years. Yes I’m a fan. Yes I’m debt free including the house! But it took me 20 years of listening to get there. And, I still have lessons to learn so I still listen. I’m listening to Rachel‘s book before I give it to my 14-year-old daughter. There’s not a lot of new or different information but Rachael has a fresh enthusiasm for the material. And frankly, my daughter it’s much more likely to listen to Rachel Cruz than Dave Ramsey from a pure generational perspective. People learn incrementally and I still learned some lessons from Rachael today. I especially love her chapter on giving. She is an inspiration... a chip off the old block. Kudos!
