“The Faith Dare” by Debbie Alsdorf

Here is my review of this amazing devotional book:

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Debbie Alsdorf and her publisher for sending me a copy of "The Faith Dare" to review for them. I am truly grateful for this generosity. I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me.

Debbie Alsdorf’s book “The Faith Dare: 30 Days to Live Your Life to the Fullest” found me at the perfect time. I started reading this beautiful devotional when I found a lump in my breast and began the process of having it diagnosed. The daily readings, encouragement and challenges bolstered my faith and reminded me that God is not frivolous – He is determinedly purposeful.

I read the daily verses aloud as an act of praise when I was unable to think straight. I was encouraged by the supporting scripture and the author’s commentary explaining the daily concept and its life application. I even accepted a few of the “dares” that were provided as a step of faith to apply that day’s reading to my life. The book also contains an area for journaling – usually where healing begins for me. The prayers to recite were wonderful primers for my faulty prayer pump that got me really talking to God in many cases.

This would be a great resource to use alone or with a group for accountability. It is completely centered in the Word of God with great practical application. Whether you’re going through the best or worst of times, this book will encourage you to build your faith.
