About The Author: Elizabeth Sherrill has published some  more than thirty books-many cowritten with her husband John-including The Hiding Place, The Cross and the Switchblade, and God's Smuggler.  For more than fifty years, Elizabeth has been a writer and editor for Guideposts magazine and a contributor to Daily Guideposts.  The couple's writing often still keeps them on the road here and abroad, about half the time.  The Sherrills have three children, eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild, and are occasionally at home in a small town in Massachusetts.

My Thoughts On The Book:  Obstacles Strengthen Faith is one of my favorite spiritual pieces in the book.  It begins with four books of the Bible that go along with the story of our traveling companion, Moses.    A story of Moses follows and a prayer is at the end of the reading.  Expect the Best was my favorite non-spiritual piece.  The scripture for the reading is from Porverbs 23:18 and says, "Thine expectations shall not be cut off.ollows is about a cross-country plane trip and a seven-year-old.  The prayer that follows this story is about looking for the good in others and how looking for it helps the good to show.  I loved the whole book and was delighted with the intertwining between Bible stories and real-life stories.  This is a must read and a must have!  It would make a wonderful gift.
