From the Inside Flap

Love, by its very essence, results in action.

In the pages of this devotional book, you'll see how God has led others to express their love...and you'll find how others have experienced God revealing His love to them. You'll see how the ultimate expression of love, God's Word, has inspired and challenged people just like you to reach out to others--friends and family, total strangers, and even perceived enemies.

So we welcome you to explore the actions of love in these nuggets of spiritual gold. And to learn more about the God who so loved us that He gave--over and over and over again--with His presence, His provision, His words of encouragement and hope, and even His life.

--Gary Chapman and James Stuart Bell

From the Back Cover

Daily Inspiration for Lasting Love



What's the key to love that endures? Gary Chapman says it's communicating your love--not only in words, but also in deeds. And this book will show you how with a year's worth of daily examples of love in action. Be inspired by true stories from everyday people displaying love in concrete ways. Be encouraged that little acts of kindness can make all the difference. You'll see that love isn't just a feeling. Love is a choice, and love is something we need to do. Love is a verb.

Dear children, let's not merely say that we love each other; let us show the truth by our actions.
--1 John 3:18

I love this book. My wife bought several copies to pass out to others. All the writers shared a part of their life's which brings back memories of similar situations on our life's journeys. This is a great book to keep by the bed and share a short story with your spouse.

When I first discovered this gem I had to share with my sister. She already had one! She and her husband had been going to counseling and the counselor recommended this book to them.

I just stopped by Amazon to pick up FIVE more copies and was amazed there were no reviews. I was also amazed that this book is now available for under one dollar NEW from Amazon second party sellers. So, maybe I'll buy a few extra copies for my gift cupboard.

This volume makes a lovely Christmas, wedding, anniversary or romantic Valentines Day gift.

For under five bucks, this is a home run! Buy it, you will not be disappointed!

This devotional is very inspirational, thought provoking, and meaningful. In fact, mere words can't do it justice. The way the devotions bring the scripture to life is phenomenal! This is a great devotional for brand-new Christians, seasoned Christians, and for people who are not Christians but who are "searching". Highly recommended. Something all people from all walks of life can relate to. I bought several copies to give as gifts.

I’m not a scriptural, Bible-based, “more Christian than you” person. Just someone looking for something. Didn’t know what to expect when I saw this book on December 28. But something communicated reading each day’s devotional would be a worthy 2015 resolution.
Wow! Was it ever. This book is NOT preachy, “thou-shalt-not”ish or churchy.
It IS simple, short stories. Tender, touching, unpretentious stories. Each one accompanied by a Bible passage and a relevant quote from some unknown person. Stories evoking emotions not always enjoyed, but which I choose to reflect on. Emotions where I often feel insufficient and falling short.
Like the day after Valentine’s Day story, where a 21- year old daughter conversationally tells her dad, “I love you today for who you are. You’re godly.” That won’t happen in my life.
But after the initial hurt, I realized I wasn’t feeling a failure or futile. I was feeling how much I love my daughters – and how godly THEY are.
And thanked God for today’s chat. And leading me to this book.

This daily devotional gives the reader ideas of how to put their Christianity to action. Love is not something to hold on to yourself but to give away. Each day shows how someone was blessed when they gave away their love.

The stories were thought provoking. Made me think of ways to improve my daily interactions. Also made me remember the many times God ministers to me through people and events. God is good all the time.

I am enjoying this devotional. Someone said that it was great for couples. It is NOT just for couple. It is for everyone.

I am just beginning to read this, making it my daily devotional for 2015.
It is excellent and Gary is an outstanding author. Consider...Paul said,
now remains these three...but the greatest of these is LOVE. And to
know who is a disciple...you will recognize them "by their LOVE. And
finally, the Bible says "God is LOVE." What a way to develop the greatest
gift...action in 2015.
