Book Blog Tour and Contest Information: Embraced by God by Babbie Mason

My Review of Embraced by God:

Embraced by God is a 21-day devotional-type book by Babbie Mason that is designed for women. It is categorized into different concert themes; each concert theme makes up a new section of the book and helps you envision the topics like you are approaching a new concert each time. It is then broken up into subsections. Both the sections and subsections talk about God’s love. At the end of each subsection there is a section called “Embrace Your Day” that usually lists a prayer, and ways to “Think About His Love”, “Read About His Love”, “Pray About His Love”, and “Be About His Love”. It offers words of encouragement for times when you are surrounded by life’s difficult challenges and need an incredible comeback.

I looked forward to reading each day’s teaching and stayed encouraged throughout the entire book. I liked some of Babbie’s examples that she used, such as when the music stopped during one of her performances, she made a quick decision to play the music on the piano even though she hadn’t played the song that way for awhile. She discovered that God had used her example of a comeback to match a message the audience had just heard. I also liked it when it was described that the pits we find ourselves in are custom made for us and that nobody wants to get in those pits with us, even if our pit is grief. After reading this I found myself hoping that more people will be encouraged to walk with people while they are in their pits. Psalm 137 (where the tribe of Judah is talked about) was explained and I feel like it can relate to some of those pits as well because the tribe of Judah didn’t want to sing in a foreign land to their enemies, during a time of natural spiritual depression.

I am happy to be able to review this book by Babbie Mason. I have watched Babbie’s House and have heard some of Babbie’s music, so it’s always a blessing to read a book from someone that has blessed you through t.v. and song as well.


Disclosure of material connection: I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group for this review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Contest Information for Embraced by God:



Embraced by God is a 21-day encounter that shares the unconditional love of God. "If you watch what the media says as to where we should find our identity--" says Babbie, "--money, beauty, power and technology--you'll just be confused about who you are and what your purpose is. As a culture we are trying to buy or sell what can only be administered to the soul by Jesus."
