GOOD MORNING! HAVE A NICE DAY...

In her debut religious title, Wynn takes postings from her online presence and compiles a daily devotional.

Each selection begins with “Good Morning!” and ends with “Have a Nice Day...” These short snippets are designed to inspire and encourage readers, as are the biblical quotes sprinkled throughout the book. The book includes 124 daily devotions instead of the standard 365, and each devotional page has just one message on it. Some are shorter than others, but all are lighthearted and meant to convey a message about the comfort, support, love and mercy of Jesus Christ and God. As a licensed minister and ordained elder, Wynn attests that her warm smile—given freely to all she meets—radiates the warmth of Christ that lives in her heart. It’s this warmth she puts in her work as she advises, “When you have accomplished your task at hand, and done the very best that you can do, you will receive your just reward!” (Day 16) Most readers will likely consider her words inspirational and comforting. However, not all of her advice is quite as sound: “When people who possess certain talents and skills come together to contribute to a project, there is no telling what they can do together. The Tower of Babel was the first proof of this.” (Day 17) Some devotionals contain conflicting messages, and the content of others can be so short that it feels incomplete, as with Day 6: “You were chosen even before you were born, that is how special you are and your purpose.”

A heartwarming, inspirational read.
