New Devotional Awakens the Spirit!

A multi-sensory inspirational tour. That’s what groundbreaking author Angela Jo Manieri takes her readers on in her engaging new devotional “Your ‘I AM’ Wake Up Call”. Using eye-popping, self-produced photography, Manieri has wedded together the visual and the textual into a dynamic combination that draws you in through the eye gate, and then moves you toward God via the Biblical text and inspirational comments.

Winsome as these features are, the author’s real goal isn’t to impress – it’s to inspire! Launching from a spiritual mooring of carefully selected Scriptural references, the author invites you on a spiritual journey into intimacy with God.

Each daily devotional theme focuses on personal embracing and internalizing a truth nugget that affirms who we are in Christ (e.g., “Today I AM Strength”). The tone is positive with content that’s fortifying and encouraging to the core. Manieri’s writing style is refreshingly homespun, welcoming the reader into, say, her kitchen or family room. The language she employs is descriptive and concise, making use of daily life experiences, personal insights and pop culture to convey each key thought for the day.

The photography perfectly parallels and depicts the devotional thought in a striking yet authentic manner. The exquisite pictures were shot on-site in no less than eight states and on two continents, providing a kind of visual ‘mini-vacation’ to places as exotic as Hawaii, as picturesque as Alaska and as historic as Boston {day-by-day-index of actual locations at back of book}.

Each devotional theme is summarized with a timely, appropriate quotation from well-known sources representing many walks of life, from Nobel poets to nation-changing activists to brilliant scientists. The author takes the opportunity in her afterword to invite readers to partner with her in supporting I.J.M., a human rights agency that rescues victims of slavery, sexual exploitation and other forms of violent oppression.

This dual-layered devotional aid could well be described as a fresh-brewed cup of spiritual coffee – just what we need to help us wake up to God’s presence whether we begin our day with Him in the wee hours of the morn or end it by His side at the close of a busy day!

Thoughtfully accommodating the sight-impaired, the title is also available in CD format. Copies of the book and CD can be purchased at Amazon.com or at http://www.youriamwakeupcall.com

“Angela has captured in words and pictures a vital essence of Christian living. The Gospels and the influence of the Holy Spirit compel us towards a closer walk with the Lord, but the normal human trials of everyday living often flood our minds with the worry and concerns of worldly living. Your I Am Wake Up Call is a great island of refuge to pause and reflect on the fact that we are unique creations of a loving and ever-present God.

There’s a popular statement that advises people if their clothes catch fire to Stop, Drop and Roll. But sometimes the fire that’s consuming us is the pain, stress and anxiety of this world. When that happens I say, Stop, Pray and then reflect with a great message like the ones contained in Your I Am Wake Up Call.”

Your “I Am” Wake Up Call is a daily script for living, certainly inspirational and contemplative. It is short, compact and grabs attention. Everyone can use this in his/her daily life, whether it be before work or school, during lunch or break, or in the quietude of the evening. We have to assimilate and practice this advice, which is not easy in today’s world.

Angela has touched hearts for Christ with her writing. She has taken a lifetime of experiences, an uncanny ability to connect with others, and has blended those with her God-given talents such as photography and storytelling, in such a way that His glory is unveiled beautifully…and yet so personally. These truths need to be shared with a hungry world that is waiting to connect with God, but is longing for a way to understand who He is.

Story Behind the Book

In 2004, I felt a stirring in my heart. I was driving home and as clear as it could be, I heard a still, small voice say to me “You are to launch a project and it will be called “Your A.M. Wake Up Call!” I was literally chilled and in a state of awesome wonder! I asked myself, ‘What could...see more
