“Only Love Today” by Rachel Macy Stafford

I recently had the chance to read “Only Love Today” by Rachel Macy Stafford. This nonfiction book was released on March 7, 2017 by HarperCollins.

About this book (from the back cover):

Only Love Today is the inspirational read from best-selling author of Hands Free Mama, Rachel Macy Stafford. Millions of Stafford’s fans from her blog and her books find hope, challenge, and inspiration through her poetic and powerful short pieces on her blog. Only Love Today brings these pieces and many new, original entries together in a beautiful book based around the four seasons. From finding daily surrender in the autumn and daily hope in the winter, to daily bloom and daily spark in the spring and summer, you will always find fresh beautiful words for your day.

With a flexible, non-dated structure, Only Love Today is perfect to pick up at any time of the year and find hope and encouragement to address your current challenge or need – family, parenting, relationships, finding peace in a stressed out world. Stafford offers you strength and vision for a new and more connected way to live. This is a timeless book of inspiration to remember and live for what really matters.

My Verdict:

I find Rachel Macy Stafford’s writing to be so soothing and encouraging. This book is full of fantastic daily affirmations that will help you focus on what really matters in your parenting and relationships. It’s not meant to be read straight through – if you did that you might find it repetitive. Rather, these undated daily readings are perfect to relax and focus you each morning. I find that reflecting on one daily reading helps me be more intentional in speaking words of love to my children and my husband. My husband just did a sermon series on 1 Corinthians 13 (the Love chapter) and I thought of this book while he was speaking. I think Stafford’s writing in this book will help readers live out our Biblical mandate to love our neighbors.
