Spotlight One. Today I am doing a spotlight on Kathy Ide and her book “21 Days of Love.”
To find out a little bit more about 21 Days of Love I went and looked at some reviews. I hope you find them helpful.
I love this”21 days of….” series by Kathy Ide. At work I have a 1/2 lunch. The stores are short and complete and I can read one story during lunch and still have time to reflect on the story and the life application. I highly recommend all of her books in this series and I have purchased extra copies to have on hand to give to others!
Have loved this whole series of books. You can learn so much from good Christian stories.

“21 Days of Love: Stories that Celebrate Treasured Relationships” compiled by Kathy Ide, is an uplifting collection of fiction short stories that speak about true love all people long for, and God’s divine hand in meeting a person’s need for love in many kinds of relationships: husband and wife, parent and child, teacher and student, friends or siblings, to name a few.
The stories are well-written, realistic, and there’s a short devotional and Scripture verse that appears at the conclusion of each chapter. Each story is a stand-alone one and can be read in one sitting. I recommend this book for women readers who love fiction, have very busy schedules and want to read stories that not only entertain but spur them on in their faith as well.

Love can be found in many treasured relationships: boyfriend-girlfriend, husband-wife, parent-child … with a special friend, teacher, or pet … in the kindness of a stranger. We even have a national holiday to celebrate love.
The greatest love ever known is God’s abundant love for us, His children. And He often demonstrates that perfect love through imperfect people.

These stories represent all kinds of love. Woven through each story is the sustaining hand of our loving heavenly Father.

Kick off the new year with love!
21 Days of Love: Stories that Celebrate Treasured Relationships, book 3 in the Fiction Lover’s Devotional series, contains short fiction stories about all kinds of love. Boyfriend-girlfriend. Husband-wife. Parent-child. Teacher-student. Even love for pets and showing love to strangers. Since the greatest love ever known is God’s abundant love for us, His children, the sustaining hand of our loving heavenly Father is woven throughout. Each story is written by a different author and is followed by a brief Life Application in which the author shares how the fictional story relates to our day-to-day lives.
21 Days of Love has chapters written by well-known, best-selling novelists, including Susan May Warren, Sherry Kyle, Renae Brumbaugh, and New York Times best-selling author Cindy Woodsmall. There are also stories by writers you may not have heard of. At the end of each chapter is an author bio that gives some background information about the author. So if you really like a story you read, you can find out what else that author has written. You may just find some new names to add to your favorites list.
And if you haven’t read much Christian fiction, this devotional will give you a small taste of several different authors and genres, without having to commit to reading an entire novel. You might just discover that you actually love Christian fiction!
21 Days of Love, a finalist in the 2017 Selah awards, makes a perfect Valentine’s Day gift for friends and loved ones.
