“When it comes to Christianity, I am not one you’ll find in church every Sunday, but I have always believed in God and often finds myself turning towards my faith to find direction. I received this book a number of weeks ago and found it immediately engaging. As this book is designed to be read daily, I opted to keep this in my studio where I work, in a place visible, where I can take a moment at any time each day, to pause, read and reflect. It’s the perfect book, each daily devotion, quick, well written and inclusive to actions we take in our daily lives. This book gives one pause, to look inside ourselves, to understand the choices we have made in the past and make in our daily activities, choices which can be counter to one’s own faith. I like the topics, the ease with which each daily devotion is communicated and how it is relevant in my life today and to the word of God. Highly recommend this book.”
5.0 out of 5 stars “I so love my daily devotional which is a quick read but full of very deep meaning. I love how the book always compares to our day to day “stuff” but can always pull it back to the bible. I like this comparison. The Life is a Test message is very thought provoking. I truly, truly enjoyed this. I am looking forward to the next edition. Thanks so much for sharing this book with the world. I enjoy growing in God.”
“Surprising what you thought you knew until you read through this time-tested compendium of life hacks. We really enjoyed the calendar of daily truths, now we have them in a very readable book format. The years have paid off Doc Watkins. Thank you for teaching those of us who are still learning. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!”
5 out of 5 stars! Very Inspirational! “Life is a test” calendar is an exceptionally well-thought out and structured teaching daily devotional. With wholehearted yet lighthearted personal life antidotes, it is a mature “injection” of piercing and challenging truth.”
5.0 out of 5 stars “A must have daily dose! This is a great book! When you read it, you feel like you are sitting beside the Author and he is talking to you. Read it! You will be glad you did!”
5 out of 5 stars ! Highly Recommend! “Dr. Watkins presents clear, thought provoking questions that will have you reevaluating your preconceived notions of faith, community, and our Christianity as individuals. Through a biblical foundation in each daily devotion, Dr. Watkins provides biblical evidence, with a concise and clear summary to reflect on. Prepare to be challenged, as you embark on a year long journey to understand more about who God is, and how He directs us to live day to day.”
“Life from many angles.
Stuart Watkins has presented us with a devotional that examines life from many angles. The devotional has a piercing style for how it challenges the reader to hear God’s words from scripture and then immediately check our lives for how well we are listening.
But it is not a “supposed to” devotional! This book is not about digging up should after should – Watkins weaves the truths of scripture into the unfolding fabric of daily events, thoughts, emotions and choices. It reads as from a man who has experienced deep hardships in life yet remains convinced of God’s goodness and is willing to wait on God patiently enough to receive his goodness again and again. His life lessons will speak to you. Stuart Watkins encourages you forward to victorious Christian living.”
