Book Review, Blog Tour, and Giveaway: "21 Days of Love" compiled by Kathy Ide

About the Book

21 Days of Love
Title: 21 Days of Love
Compiled by: Kathy Ide
Genre: Non-fiction, Devotional
Release Date: January 1, 2016
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. On Valentine’s Day—and every day—whether your life is chocolates and flowers or loneliness and pain … let these stories fill your heart with hope, peace, and most important, love.
 "21 Days of Love" is the 3rd in this series that I've been able to read. I enjoy this series as I love having the introductions to different authors, short story length, and variety of types of stories. I recognized more of the authors in this book than some of the others. This book has a wide variety of genres, from contemporary, to historical, to Amish. There are also different kinds of relationships featured, too. New love, lost love, married couples, parents and children. It is nice to have the stories to read when you only have a short amount of time to read, or to add to your devotional time. I look forward to reading the last book in this series.

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.
