From the back cover
Let the Holy Spirit guide your lives
Galatians 5:16
We all have good intentions for honoring God, but what happens when our actions don't match our intentions?  In the day-to-day
of busy families, rush-hour traffic, and endless to-do lists, it's easy to fall short.  The good news is: God knows we try.

Making God Smile leads you on a year long journey to intentionally live the fruit of the Spirit mentioned in Galatians 5:22.
Kim Taylor Henry invites you to focus on each of the fruit for forty days, in a specific order, to allow that fruit to grow strong roots and become a permanent part of who you.

And I thought
I just want to make God smile.  This book/devotional had me at the 
title.  I was offered a chance to read and review it and I jumped on it.  The title intrigued me.
It's 368 pages is filled with wisdom and is a practical guide. 
It's a short study of the Fruits of the Spirit as well as a great devotional. 

Each devotional is short and easy to read but filled with application and inspiration.  The author includes stories about her own journey.

Making God Smile is a devotional to savour.  

The hardback copy (which is what I received) would make a great gift.   Check this one out for yourself or purchase as a gift.  
Making God Smile would make a nice gift for your church library. 
Amazon is the cheapest source at $12.37 but it is on sale now at CBC for $12.99

I received a complimentary copy. 
My review will appear on retail sites and Good Reads.
