WHAT A GREAT WORD! is a new kind of devotional. With Scripture and fresh insights from author Karen Moore, readers are able to focus on one word each day to strengthen their faith and see God's hand at work.
These are simple words, words we use every day that we often gloss over when reading God's Word. If, for example, the word for the day is "protect," the reading from Psalm 121:6-8 declares: "The Lord will protect you from all dangers; He will guard your life." Readers will then see how the Lord protects our lives. He is the One who defends us, guards us, and keeps us safe.
With one simple word, readers will move from hoping the Lord will protect us, to believing He will act on our behalf. Now that's a Great Word!
"What a Great Word! is a beautiful way to spend a few minutes each day focusing on what is really important and growing into the person God created us to become." -- Jean Ziglar, wife of Zig Ziglar

Praise For What a Great Word!: A Year of Daily Devotions…
"The term 'short, sweet, and to the point' is often misused, but it perfectly and beautifully describes Karen Moore's new devotional. We live super-busy lifestyles and the short chapters leave us without excuse for taking a moment to consider the deep things of God. Each chapter is sweet with truth that is nourishment for the soul. And the 'to the point' target helps focus on the main thing each and every day. Recommended reading!"—Joel Comm, New York Times best-selling author
