Celebrate Lit Blog Tour: The Choice is Yours by Barbara Dahlgren

Book: The Choice is Yours

Author: Barbara Dahlgren
Genre: Religion/Christian Living/Devotional
Release Date: November 2019

Do you stress over making decisions? Does the possibility of making the wrong choice paralyze you? In The Choice Is Yours: 52 Choices for Happier Lives, Barbara Dahlgren explores decisions we face daily. She does so with the spiritual insight and practicality developed through fifty years of ministry. The Choice Is Yours is drawn from Dahlgren’s blog, Barbara’s Banter: taking my faith but not myself too seriously, and is suitable for a devotional or a Bible study tool. Each chapter includes practical suggestions, a key Bible verse, and the option for the reader to jot down their own tips for making better choices in daily life.

We are faced with many "Choices" on a daily basis. Some are easy to make, while some are more difficult and tiring to come to a final Choice. 

The Bible has many scriptures and instructions on making wise Choices that are inline with God's will for us. I know I tend to sometimes just "speed through a Choice" just to get it done. I sometimes regret that and I need to get better at making Choices that align with Bible principles and not choices made on a whim. 

The author has written a GREAT book that has 52 Chapters that can be used as a weekly devotional, covering one chapter a week for a year or as a Bible Study with a group. I read through it and it is very thought provoking. Each chapter has a Bible Verse to read, a "Consider this" section that is meant to provoke thought. There is also a small spot to write down thoughts. The book is well written and I love the sense of humor the author has! 

Some examples of the choices are:

• Choose to believe in God
• Choose to forgive 
• Choose to make prayer a priority 
• Choose not to offend
• Choose not to be offended 
• Choose to celebrate life

The New Year is upon us and many are probably looking for a Devotional or new Bible Study to read in the New Year or even now. I would HIGHLY recommend this book for anyone looking to make better Choices in life!!

More from Barbara

When my granddaughter was in preschool, she came home one day and was sad. Her mom asked what was wrong. Sophia replied, “My teacher said I didn’t make good choices today.”
I always felt her teacher had a great deal of wisdom. Instead of saying Sophia was naughty or bad, she planted a seed of thought into her little life about making better choices. Better choices lead to happier lives. In a way, that was the inspiration for my latest blog theme which led to this book.
My first book was called Zorro and Me. It was about my husband, whom I’ve nicknamed Zorro, and our experiences in 50 years of ministry. Usually known as a humorist, I try to intersperse a lot of personal experiences in my speaking and writing. My philosophy is to take my faith, but not myself, too seriously. I think we would all be happier if we chose to laugh more and criticize less.
Here’s a little quiz to get to know me better. Which one do you think is false?
  1. I was born many years ago in the foothills of the Ozarks in a town with a population of 10.
  2. While on a mission trip to Nigeria, our children were held captive by the police for a few hours.
  3. My son was unexpectedly born in a hotel room while we were traveling, so we used a dresser drawer as a baby bed.
  4. I’ve mounted a camel near the Great Pyramids in Egypt, climbed the Great Wall in China, leaned with the Tower of Pisa in Italy, and been on safari in Kenya.
  5. While on a teen trip touring the White House, one of my children became ill, so the Secret Service took him outside where he barfed behind a big bush on the White House lawn. It’s the one on the left when you look at pictures of the White House.
Guess what! They are all true. There’s more, but I don’t want to give all my secrets away today.
