Book Review: Living Life Undaunted

Book Review: Living Life Undaunted

Living Life Undaunted by Christine Caine is a daily devotional book based on the author’s bestselling book, “Undaunted” and her other inspirational writings.

The author takes us on a year long journey through the 4 sections in the book:

  • Broken
  • Loved
  • Empowered
  • Commissioned

In the first section of the book, we are led to confront our brokenness and trust God in the healing process. The second quarter reveals God’s unconditional love for us, and teaches us to be more like Him. In the third segment, you will find encouragement to be whole again and grow in faith. The final section of the book calls us to participate in God’s commission and make a difference in the world.

There are 365 devotions in all – one for each day of the year. Each devotion begins with a verse from the Bible, contains a few thoughts from the author, and ends with a couple of questions to help us reflect on the day’s passage.

I loved the author’s personal stories that were woven throughout the book. And there are several nuggets of wisdom that God has used to challenge and inspire me.

Here are some of them:

“God’s Word does not say that all things that happen to us are good, but it does say that God is able to work all things together for the good of those who love him and are called according to his purpose.”

“When there is a fight between my heart and my head, experience has taught me that the best thing to do is pick up my Bible and remind myself of what God says.”

“It is always dangerous when our gifts take us to a place where our character cannot keep us.”

I do not normally recommend devotional books because they tend to overshadow our daily habit of reading straight from the Bible. But I will recommend Living Life Undaunted as a great supplementary resource if you’re looking for bite-sized daily inspiration.

On a personal note, I have been deeply touched by the author’s personal testimony, and tremendously inspired by her story of healing. I’m eagerly looking forward to reading her other books!

Disclosure: I received a free Kindle version of this book from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own.
