31 days of Drawing Near to God

31 Days of Drawing Near to God by Ruth Myers

This book is not what I was expecting from the title. It is 31 days filled with lessons of God’s love. Ruth Myers opens this book with a summary of her life story, the beginning is filled with lessons she has learned about the love of God and as the book progresses it gets more general and not personal. She has an amazing testimony about God’s love in her life, and while I enjoyed reading those, my favorite chapters were towards the end.

I can’t say that I was really challenged by this book at all or that I learned anything new, but I do think it was a good book. It took me a while to get into the book, just because it wasn’t what I was expecting or hoping for going off of the title, but once I accepted it for what it was I enjoyed it and was able to get into it more. I love that the readings are accompanied by Scripture passages to look up, so that you can make it more personal.
