My review: 4 Stars
This would make a nice present for next year.  It suggests that you read one page a day and focus on that word and what it means.  There are 25 words like Peace, Joy.   It is short description that you can read in just moments or take lots of time to reflect on it.  I will try it at least for the next week.

Review:  5 stars
 I love this small Christus marble statue.  I have wanted bigger ones but had no room or the money for it.  This is affordable and can fit in any home.  It is a quality statue.  Only three inches tall, but a big message to remember Christ and all he stands for.

My review: 5 stars
This songbook touched me yesterday when I had the first of two CDs on and looked at the songs, beautiful pictures and personal stories behind the different songs.  I found myself moved to tears a few times.
I don't sing or play piano so I did not expect to love this book as much but I know when I need peace and calm or uplifting I will get this book and Cds out.
