I already have Ms. Young's first devotional "Jesus Calling" and have enjoyed it immensely. This newest devotional "Dear Jesus" is just as good, if not better. Ms. Young is able to put in to words, the cry of our hearts as Christians and I truly believe her book was inspired by God. Her devotions lead me to the very heart of God and I love that she has included the actual scriptures in this devotional. If you enjoyed her first devotional, I would highly recommend that you purchase this one as well. You will not be disappointed.

This is a follow up book to the original dated devotional. Personally, I think I like the original better. I liked the dated entries. I also liked looking the scriptures up as they were quoted each day. The entries here are undated, which I am sure some folks will prefer. Also the scriptures that are referenced each day, are printed (in SMALL print) at the end of each entry. While I guess that is convenient, I like the other way better, as it gets me opening up the Bible.

It was great to see Sarah Young come out with Dear Jesus after her brilliant and Spirit inspired book Jesus Calling.

If you are short on time and enjoy golden nuggets of truth regarding the bible and the personal relatinship that Jesus desires for everyone then these books are for you. Great for the beginners and seasoned faith beleivers as well.

This is my third year reading the daily devotionals and I learn new truths each and every time.

I keep a few on the shelf as gifts and alsways had very, very positive feedback. Buy it....you wont be disapointed.

This book, through scriptural based conversations with God, stresses our dependance on Him and His sovereign will. It is a great reminder that He is in control, cares for and loves us and desires a relationship with us. It pushes you to give up trying to control everything, drop your hands and give it all to God and that He is always there for you. Great for those who worry, stress, struggle with busy lives or just desire a more personal relationship with our Lord and Savior.

This is the second book by Sarah Young that I have read and this book is equally as good as the first. I was delighted to hear/see that she had written another and that it was available on Amazon.com, where I now do most of my buying. The passages are short and sweet but very insightful and provide the reader with sustanance for a full day. I ended up ordering 7 books and gave them to all my friends. They, too, are thrilled with this book.

I purchased the Kindle version of this book. I started reading it and loved it, but I then found out I could not jump to any location. Neither would the topical index allow me to jump to any of the index locations. Since this book does not note the date for each selection, you need to be able to jump to numbered locations. Amazon refunded the purchase price, and removed the book from my Kindle. Amazon said they will call me in two days with the solution to the problem. If they solve the problem, I will repurchase the book. I will repost here with whether or not they can fix the problem with the Kindle version.

I love this book because Jesus talks to us individually answering quesions we have about our own failings which are directed to Him in letter form by the author. During my husband's recent hospital stay, at which time I read this book constantly to him, (he is blind and has Alzheimer's), it brought me closer to Our Savior while trying to understand His plans for us. This book provides inspiration, comfort and peace to those who read it.

This small book comes first with a struggle Jesus tells us about ourselves, second with a prayer/response to help us admit the sin or struggle, and third with words Jesus speaks to us and scripture to back up those words. It is in a dialogue format that helps one to focus on what He is trying to say to us. As with all her other books and devotions, Sarah Young, has been used as a vessel by the Lord. Together they have hit it out of the park with awe inspiring moments for each day. Batter up! Begin your windup (your day) with this book. You will not be sorry!

My wife and I bought four different devotionals in this series because they were so inspiring. Then, we decided to read 2 chapters a day from the New Testament along with reading from these devotionals. By the time we finished reading the 4 gospels we found that we were liking the devotionals less and less. WHY? Because when you get to the source (your Bible), you begin to feel uneasy about Sarah Young's style. She writes in the first person of Jesus as if she is quoting His words, but they aren't. They are her words put in His mouth in an effort to make you feel closer to Him and He closer to you. That's a noble goal, but the means, in my opinion should be avoided. We have since stopped reading Sarah Young's devotionals and are continuing reading the Bible at a pace of 2 chapters a day. This has been so much more rewarding as we are at the Source material. We'll stick to reading what Jesus ACTUALLY said, rather than reading from a devotional that puts the author's own words in His mouth. We have decided to read "100 Verses Every Christian Should KNow" along with our Bible and that has been a real blessing. "We worship in Spirit and in TRUTH."
