    I have distributed, read and taught from the Daily Bread at least 40 years of my life; from New Mexico, Texas and California. I live to hear from God via this book as well as other devotions including one that I also wrote and published. I was sorry that I could only get 2 copies of this series. On occasions I have ordered several but they are during certain offers. I will send donation soon. I am interested in any of your series as I give them to prison inmates all my neighbors at leastc20 and to at least three churches. They are well circulated. Thank you for being a blessing.

    I start my day by reading the Daily Bread. It is so inspiring and informational. I feel at peace and seek the Lord, loving how He knows what my heart and life needs each day. I love praising my Lord, my Abba Father, Jesus my Savior and Lord and see how the power of the Holy Spirit works in my life.
