Voices of the Faithful is a 366 day year long devotional. Written by HUNDREDS of missionaries from around the world, ministering to many different cultures. Kim P. Davis compiles and edits this book.

It’s packed full of amazing stories straight from the pens of the missionaries who experienced the events. It’s a great, quick (but meaningful!) devotional, and it’s written in an easy to read, accessible way. It’s  great for a little “boost” in the morning. Kim did a great job with compiling all the stories and pairing them with appropriate scriptures.
But, I did find myself longing for more details and stories from the writers, since the daily entries only contain a few paragraphs. I know that it was meant to be short stories of encouragement and faith,  but i wanted MORE! I wish that they had chosen to spend maybe a week on a certain missionary to tell their stories in much more detail. But, that is not what they planned on doing with this devotional, that would just be something I would like 🙂 .  I wasn’t completely in love with this book, but, i didn’t hate it either. I’m just in the middle of the road, not serious opinion either way.
