Day One (Devotional): A Review

Let me just start out by saying I love Matthew West.

I need to get that disclaimer out of the way because this review is completely biased.

His music is great. He invites listeners to send in their story and then just develops hit songs from them. A drug addict, someone struggling with forgiveness, somebody struggling with the meaning of their life.

So I was super excited to see this devotional available on NetGalley.

This devotional focuses on stories from his latest album, Live Forever. The title comes from one of the songs, Day One.  There are 180 devotions that take only a few minutes to read; however, these can impact an individual's day positively.

These devotionals are a reminder that no matter where we've been or what we've done, God's mercies are new every morning. Each day is day one of the rest of our lives. West's message is full of grace, forgiveness, and purpose centered in God's love.

The devotions are quick and easy to read. West writes with humor and an authentic voice. The devotions start with a Bible verse followed by a quick story. Sometimes it's something that a listener has sent in, and West relates this to his own life experiences, or sometimes it's just a snippet of his life.

I'd give this book 5 stars because it's easy to read, easy to process, and relatable to real life.


I received free access to this book through Netgalley.com and am posting this review on their website. This book is currently available for purchase wherever Christian books are sold.  I receive no compensation from Amazon for using their link with the book information.
