A Daily Walk with God
“Take two.” In the film industry, that statement is made because the first take was not good enough. In the case of this book, it’s the opposite. Marlene‘s first book, “Morning Walks with God,” was so successful her second is now in your hands. A Daily Walk with God is filled with practical food for your soul that will spiritually sustain and equip you so that your first take on the decisions of your day will honor God. Marlene is a student of what an authentic walk with God should look like, and writes with helpful insight and clarity. You will be encouraged and motivated to live for the Lord each day as you enjoy the wisdom contained in these pages!

The perfect title for Marlene’s new book, A Daily Walk with God, is exactly what we need to be doing–walking daily with God. Taking time to read the Bible and to seek God’s guidance daily is an essential part of our daily walk. But let us not forget that prayer is our lifeline to God. As we talk with Him, He hears and answers our prayers knowing what is best for our life. As you read these daily thoughts and the brief prayer, stop and reflect on how God is working in your life. It is my prayer that this book will be an encouragement in your daily spiritual walk.
