After years of meditation and study, Ellen Edmondson wrote A Place of Love and Light to share her gifts. In over 150 devotionals, the author conveys the sense of unconditional love, truth, faith, spirituality, purpose, and becoming an agent of spiritual change. While encouraging meditation and contemplation, Edmondson offers urgings that remind readers of their purpose so they can refine their spiritual focus. After each section, she attempts to motivate readers with a step that will enable them to connect with a personal and divine exploration. Edmondson provides a free journal readers may download and fill with notes from the text as they read and reflect upon the words.

Readers can see Ellen Edmondson's inspiring gifts throughout her book, and everyone should review her testimony before diving into the pages. After absorbing her letter to readers, I felt a stronger connection to the author, and Edmondson's writing carried more weight with me. Even though I do not possess her gift, I see the need for her work to be shared with others, hopefully uplifting them and healing some of the unnecessary burdens they carry. The pieces communicate a calming joy that motivates readers to embrace the feeling, and the pictures in the book convey serenity as the author channels peace with each section of the book. I encourage you to read every page, as a lovely contribution from Edmondson's late mother appears at the end, and she beautifully details a touching story about her daughter. A Place of Love and Light is a great selection for readers who are ready to receive spiritual wisdom to guide the next phase of their journey.

In A Place Of Love & Light: A Journey Back To Compassion, Authenticity, And Making A Positive Contribution To The World by Ellen Edmondson, the author shows that God’s Divinity is a part of us. He lives in everything we do. God guides us and encourages us to be ourselves and make the most of the lives He has laid out before us. Loving thoughts and acts are a direct product of God’s love that lives inside us. It is easy to see God’s love in acts of love, kindness, giving, and sharing. Find God’s Divine love in the heart-mind-soul connection. Learn to seek and find God as He intended us to do.

A Place Of Love & Light has several passages and poems that enlighten you on the importance of maintaining a relationship with God and seeing His love in every aspect of your life. I enjoyed reading about God's connection to the soul, mind, body, and spirit, as well as the beauty He reflects in everything we see, say, and do. I love the way this daily devotional encourages you to look for the love that God shares in everyday life. I recommend A Place of Love & Light by Ellen Edmondson to those who want to know more about God, how to see His influences each day, and how to follow the path to His love. This book would be a wonderful addition to scripture reading sessions for a better understanding of God’s love and intentions or as a stand-alone daily devotional guide.
