We have become more secular (Paul calls them 'carnal' Christians) and lukewarm. Most of us are striving to know God, but the Bible states we will not know Him without hearing and knowing His Word. God has placed a passion in Adrienna to write and to get His message out to the world....

The Day Begins with Christ Reviews
"The Day Begins with Christ" takes the reader on a 50-day journey towards building a closer relationship with Christ. They will also learn about the stories of the Old Testament and New.Adríenna Dionna Turner uses a scriptural text embedded in Biblical history to open each of the lessons in "The Day Begins with Christ" while emphasizing the anecdotal aspect of the story held in each text.She then poses various questions for the reader to ponder. Lastly she asks the reader to review the story while holding certain ideas in mind.These ideas most often relate the context and focus of the Biblical story for that day to the present dilemma she has addressed in the daily teaching.The issues and dilemmas that Turner addresses in this last part of the lesson run the gambit from problems single persons face to how to uncover your spiritual gifts, and/or accomplishments or ways of dealing with the experience of lacking a father. Others include using losing weight, developing healthy eating habits, increasing and strengthening one's faith, to addressing the need for affection just to name a few.The common connection remains how to use scripture to address modern problems."The Day Begins with Christ" offers the reader/participant the opportunity to dig into Biblical scripture, and search the texts for answers to age-old questions presenting in new age forms. From this the reader/participant can clarify God's plan for her or his life.Couples, families, and church groups comprised "The Day Begins with Christ" as a tool through which they can raise discussions around various topics of interest, albeit difficult to address alone and with a centerpiece of conversation, and regarding their relevancy to one's spiritual walk as a Christian.Individuals and groups looking for a way to deepen their walk can also look to "The Day Begins with Christ."The 50 lessons of "The Day Begins with Christ" can easily be adapted to 365 days, ultimately transformed into a year-long program for those wanting to move at a slower pace in order to absorb more of the rich context offered in the various stories and Biblical texts quoted and made reference to.
I have always wanted to try a Daily Devotional. The one thing that held me back from trying one was the fact that as a rule, they are usually tainted with the writer’s personal beliefs. How could someone else’s beliefs about God help me to understand Him better, I rationalized. But having known the author Adrienna Turner on a professional basis, and having witnessed her faith in action, I eagerly traded books with her and “began my day with Christ.”Along the way Ms Turner and I had many heated discussions as I questioned many aspects of what she had written in her book. At one point I became offended by Ms Turner’s presentation of one person’s personal opinion on homosexuality as an actual, factual definition, and I put the book down in disgust. Almost immediately I heard the voice of God tell me: “You’re throwing the baby out with the bathwater.”How do I know it was God?A) This is not an expression I have ever used in daily life; it is something my grandma might say.B) Satan had nothing to gain by me continuing to read this book, but God knew I had much to learn.And learn I did. After my self-imposed break I picked up the book and continued my walk with Christ. Sometimes the way certain passages were written confused me, and yes: there are a few of what I call “Christian Myths” sprinkled throughout the text, the most glaring of which was the labeling of Mary Magdalene as the woman caught in adultery. That just happens to be a Pet Peeve of mine: Mary Magdalene was not that woman nor was she a ho; she is simply described in the Bible as a woman who was cleared of seven demons. And to be fair, Ms Turner warned me before I started reading that there were mistakes in the book which she was unfortunately didn’t catch before the book went to print, so I’m not sure if this was one of those or not. In my laziness I’m ashamed to admit I never bothered to check her website where the corrections are listed. What had happened though, was…Ms Turner broke way more of my preconceived notions and exposed more of my ignorance than I, in my Moral Superiority, could have acknowledged if I hadn’t read this book. I didn’t just read through the text, I read through each and every Bible passage in the footnotes, often using both the King James Version and the NLT. This sometimes turned a one day lesson into a two or three day event, yet I enjoyed every moment of it. In the process, not only did I become more knowledgeable about the Bible itself and about what was required of me as a Christian:I also grew closer to God. Thanks Adrienna.
This is a book that covers God's Laws (for man and woman); Eden Diet and Meat Eaters Diet (body as a temple); God in your home; Relationships such as singleness, courtship, marriage, and children; workplace; prayer life; social life; and glorifying the Lord (holy). Spiritual journey for 50-days, "Let your Day Begin Activity" after each day, and Scripture Readings.Since summer 2010 until 2011 year, I am reading the book to renew, refocus, and restore me. Second reading since in print.I also taught it for Bible Study in 2012 at Spirit Life Church for the entire year. Now in 2014, working on revisions for revised publication. I hope to work on a children's series of this book in near future too (9-12 year olds).It is one of the first non-fiction spiritual books I have written followed by Unleashing the Spirit (available on Kindle and website: www.dream4more.org as eBook, 11/11/2011), God is in the Equation (2011, working on revised copy for 2014/15), Desire at Will (December 2009 released and working on revised copy for 2014/15), and Counsel me Lord (hope to write soon with co-author possibly). First read/reviewed Dec 22, 2008. (Author's book).
The Day Begins with Christ puts me in the mind of a theologian properly dissecting the bible so that others can better understand Christ and develop a relationship with him. This book analysis God’s relationship with his people and helps the reader to further develop and cultivate their relationship with Christ. We all are here for a purpose and for a season. That season and purpose involves God’s love and guidance to properly understand and pursue. One must first be able to hear God’s voice and know what his voice sounds like to yourself. Afterwards, one must be able to take heed and follow after Christ with passion and convection that will lead to salvation and further trust in God. As a non-fictional reader of Christian related information for a passion, I found the book to be very informative and easy to read and non-threatening. Christians are looking for a following guide or something to aid in their walk as they grow in God. This journal/booklet provides this ultimately to the readers. When looking at Day 5, I do believe that his is a controversial of the Ten Commandments that are given in the bible. Is this an honorable day for Christians today and is it properly understood and taught by most who are in the span of leadership in the Church. The Sabbath is intended to be honorable, valuable for rest and restoration and also a time dedicated to additional worship that is lengthen outside of the regular week. Secondly, Day 14 Eating a well-balanced meals which contains high fiber and low in fat- hit home tremendously for me. I am a big advocate now because I believe that the body is a temple and we are to live a life that is pleasing to God not only internally yet externally. God expects our temple to be an example of health, well-being and a life that is prospering and growing to endure long years of life that is full of abundance and excellence. This can not be done through a sluggish and unhealthy state of well-being. Lastly, Day 44-Which closely relates to eating a well balanced diet and having an exercise regimen- having a social life that is meaning and that, cultivates happiness, joy, peace and a sense of well-being. We all want to belong and be love. There should be time within your day to day journey that you set aside to just have fun with others, preferably Christians, this is living a life of abundance. Each day provided enriching elements of what God expects from his people consistently. I agree with Adrienna Turner that without the knowledge of the expectations of Christ, his people perish or do not live life to the fullest and to their best capability.

When I read this book it gave me a new profound feeling about oneself and the other people in your life around you. Adrienna gives the reader a 50 day challenge to really define your relationship with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This masterpiece of work represents a daily inspirational and spiritually written journal of daily Bible scriptures associated with the topic of the day. I enjoyed the different bible references used with the topic of the day. This gives the reader a different perspective from different Bibles used for the daily topic discussion.I found myself reading each day’s topic for discussion and reading the word of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as a meaningful tool to understand the author’s point of view through her experiences to share with her readers. Adrienna gives the reader the understanding of those powerful words conveyed to her readers. She allows the reader to answer questions and do daily activities in your walk with “The Day Begins with Christ.” It is a walk and talk with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to better oneself through this life’s journey. This book has allowed me a much stronger relationship with the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This book is a must read. I give this book five out five book rating for this brilliant written masterpiece.Dream 4 More Reviews,Janeen Alredge5 stars out of 5. Wooed Us!
I was given this book in exchange for an honest review.I read the other reviews posted on here and find that I don't have anything I can really add to the reviews. This is a great book that reminds us that everyday should begin with Christ and has a 50 day challenge to make you apply this concept. Can you handle the 50 day challenge??
Successful Walk of Faith"The Day Begins With Christ" arrived for review while I was wallowing with decisions in my personal life. On a reading sabbatical, I didn't think much about reading or anything except how my life was going to forever be changed and what I needed to do. Recently, while packing some things away, I came across "Day Begins with Christ," realizing I'd yet to read it. As I looked the book over, it quickly reminded me of a workbook that you use in connection with your book, opposed to it being the actual book itself. As I scanned through a few of the pages, I found myself getting comfortable and reaching for my bible and then a pen as well. "The Day Begins With Christ" written by Adrienna Turner is a fulfilling read that has you study, learn and adhere to the word. Reviewed by: Carmen
