Reviewed by Brenda Ballard for Readers' Favorite

Societal norm is that Fridays are the best day for people with Monday being the worst. In fact, most heart attacks happen on Mondays! It all comes down to our perspective: how we perceive and handle life as it comes. We can either be empowered or oppressed but either way it is our own choice. "Every Day a Friday" is a daily devotional for 90 days, giving the reader a thought, a scripture and a prayer to contemplate as they begin their day. The theme is to feel God's love in all we do, to not let negativity become our obsession when happiness is just as easily obtained.

The devotionals are short and to the point. There are 90 days' worth and it may take maybe 15 minutes of time at the most each day to refresh our hearts and minds. The author has a wonderful way of bringing clarity to what really matters, giving examples of real time experiences. I chuckled a few times as I saw co-workers and situations that could have been different if only they had this mind set. I highly recommend this devotional series for all age groups, especially teenagers. Small Groups and even family breakfast would be enriched with the words of this book and the scriptures it provides. Being a true optimist, I found the book refreshing and affirming as I realized that many times what I was listening to was exactly what I had recently told someone. It is all about attitude!
