   “Our Beloved, Our Friend” has 40 devotions and each one begins with the same verse in Psalm 119: 18: “Open my eyes that I may see … O Lord; give me understanding according to Your Word.”
   Every devotion is a personal experience Huitt has gone through or a memory she likes to looks back on. She explains how we need to look to God during what we feel are hopeless situations.
      Huitt also talks about how, although it seems tough at the time, God gives us these hard times as tools to shape ourselves and look back at them so we can learn from them rather than let them continue on into the future.
   It’s just amazing how Huitt was so open with her life, you can really learn a lot from these stories and maybe even relate to a few of them as well.
   One thing that will really catch your attention is that it has journal space after the story. You can jot down what you thought about after reading God’s word.
   Scriptures also are located at the end for you to look up, which makes it even better to strengthen your knowledge of the Bible.
   “Our Beloved, Our Friend” isn’t just a devotions book, it’s a pick-me-up and a great Bible source.
