Product Description

If you’re living a perfect, charmed life . . . well, then this book isn’t going to be for you. But if, like the rest of us, you are at times broken, confused, lonely, or scared—if you’re struggling with problems that you think “good Christians” don’t have—then welcome, girlfriend, and pull up a chair! This quirky, friendly, and gut-honest devotional comes straight from the heart of Ellen Miller (CEO, marketing executive, mom, and unapologetic “glorious mess”). Despite the serious struggles she’s faced, Ellen today lives a life of profound joy, and The One Year Book of Inspiration contains 365 days worth of the principles and philosophies that have gotten her there. You’ll find there’s no subject she’s afraid to tackle! Her quick, daily doses of encouragement will make you laugh, give you something to look forward to each day, help you to stay (somewhat!) sane … and remind you that you’re never alone.

Ellen, I bought my daughter and myself (for Christmas) your book-- The One Year Book of Inspirations at Lifeway! I absolutely love it! I enjoy your encouragement, but more than that your honesty! You have been there and I appreciate that you share with us. My daughter is 31 and I am 55 and it is speaking volumes to both of us! Are you planning to write another book? I hope so! Thank you so much! May our Lord continue to bless you and your family! Blessings, Brenda

Ellen, I've been buying a new yearly devotional book for the past several years and this year I stumbled across yours at one of the online Christian booksellers. I bought this pink book you mention above and I can honestly tell you that its the first time in years that I look forward to my nightly devotional time and don't want to stop at just one page. Its a wonderful book, so well written and so real to the world we are living in. Thank you so much for being brave enough to write it. Truly inspirational.

I bought this because I just love the one year books. This one caught my eye with the cute and girly cover. I read it daily and I find it very uplifting and enjoy it very much. This also makes a wonderful gift!

Hi Ellen, I am reading your One Year Book of Inspiration for GIRLFRIENDS...and It is blessing me so much, I just had to take a moment to let you know. Your Piano Lesson (Part four) has just blessed me about praying and being truthful with God. Your openess, touches my heart, and lets me know that other people have sat or are sitting right where I am at whatever place I am in life. I am drawing closer to God and He is drawing closer to me, because of your obedience to write this devotion. I pray that God continues to bless you in everything that you do. PS I will never again say, "practice makes perfect" :)
