Christine Caine, Living Life Undaunted
Living Life Undaunted: 365 Readings and Reflections from Christine Caine is a daily devotional book based on her book, Undaunted. Even if you have not read Undaunted, this independent book of devotionals can be enjoyed and understood. The devotionals are written to reach a broad audience -for all ages, adults, parents, seniors and college students alike. Yet it is difficult to intimately connect with such a broad group and I found that Caine is especially effective with connecting to young adult readers. Many topics center around self esteem and faith and real life applications of biblical truth. I found the devotions to be relevant as if Caine milled through the entire bible looking for those most relevant bible passages to expand upon in her daily reflections. Also included are devotionals and discussion based on an important subject of abuse and human trafficking. She uses anecdotes from her child hood and teen years to connect with young adults readers. For those readers who themselves are victims of abuse, these daily devotionals will be refreshing and empowering. The months are divided into four quarters or four main topics- larger themes that the devotions center around. The book itself is pocket sized and the font is inviting to read. Its perfect for a backpack or purse. While I feel this book is best suited for young adults in their twenties I feel that the themes are applicable enough that even older adults will felt empowered and motivated after reading this book. As a blogger for Booklook bloggers I received this book published Zondervan for the purpose of writing this review.
