"These thirty-one short readings will scoot you up to the banquet table of God's grace and glory and leave you feasting on your Savior and the cross. But beware: this cross-centered diet will change the way you live. Get ready for joy, power, contentment, security, and hope to flood your life as you sink your teeth into this feast. These short meditations will shape your heart and mind. We need this book! The church today, particularly in America, has been languishing in selfish, impotent, shallow immaturity-barely able to survive, let alone thrive and make an impact on our culture. So this book is a gem that stands out in the mountain of Christian self-help, feel-good, and name-it-and-claim-it books that have dominated the Christian landscape for too long. Get this book. Read it, and give it away to someone else who needs a gospel booster shot."
—Brad Bigney, Senior Pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Florence, Kentucky
"The love of God in its deepest intensity is found in the immediate vicinity of the cross, and this is where Elyse invites her readers to dwell for thirty-one days of gospel meditation. Poignant and thoroughly biblical, Comforts from the Cross presents an endearing view of Christ that will encourage Christians with a fresh hope in their Savior. This book also provides a wide-ranging tour of gospel truths and shows readers how to apply them with life-changing results. This book is truly a gift to women who want their lives to bear more deeply the imprint of God's love."
—Milton Vincent, author, A Gospel Primer for Christians

This is a 31-day devotional meant to be read over the course of a month. I've now read it twice and plan to start it again in May. Each devotional is three to four pages in length so is meatier than the typical one page per day of most other devotionals I've read. She starts with a verse of Scripture that provides the context for her lesson. Many days, not all, conclude with a powerful prayer that enables you to walk away having handed over the contents of your heart to the Lord.
There are so many excellent lessons but Day 29 on prayer is worth the purchase price alone. I found I was highlighting much of the ebook and making notes in my journal. Ms Fitzpatrick brought new life to verses that I've read hundreds of times. For example, the vine, branches and abiding of John 15:4-5 she encourages us to consider that it's not about what we should do rather simply to receive the goodness and godliness that comes from intimacy with Jesus.(Day 20)
The essence of each devotional is to bring us back to Jesus, to see His great love for us, and to enable us to keep looking at Him throughout the day. Focusing on His attributes, what He's done rather than what we do, and allowing ourselves to receive all that He's done.
I can't recommend this enough and is just as valuable for men as women which I believe was Ms Fitzpatrick's intended audience.
I bought this book as a gift for someone that wanted a devotional and I somehow ended up with two copies. I started reading it just so it wouldn't go to waste. It was one of the best things I ever did, thank the Lord. I may need to read it a few more times before these precious truths really start to sink in.
The chapters are short and to the point, very easy to read one a day in a few minutes. It is addressed to women but relevant for anyone.
It was especially timely after participating in a Bible study on Galatians this spring. I am continuing to learn what it looks like to live as a child of God and not a slave to the law.
The devotionals are about 3 pages per day, one for each day that take about 15 minutes to read. It has really helped me as a busy mom of 2 toddlers to have a regular time with Jesus every day. I recommend it especially for the women out there who feel like they have no time to sit with God.
