Hope Your Heart Needs by Holley Gerth {Book Review}



~ Description 

Understanding more of God's character and how he loves us changed bestselling author Holley Gerth's life in beautiful, powerful ways. She realized that she didn't have to settle for "I'm fine" when there was someone whispering to her in every moment, "You're mine." The hope, joy, peace, and purpose she longed for were already there, in the heart of God.

Now in 52 devotional readings, Holley shares with women the answer to the restlessness they feel in their hearts that keeps them hurrying, striving, pushing. She shows them that "the God who scattered stars like diamonds across the velvet of the universe, the keeper of every sparrow, the maker of us all, is inviting us to draw closer to him. He is the place where our hearts can go on the hard days and the happy ones, in the highs and lows, when we are sad or frustrated or downright giddy. He is what we've been searching for all along."

~ My Review 

Holley Gerth presents a book of fifty-two devotionals, each focusing on a different aspect of God's character. The writing style is personal and comforting. It's like sitting down with a cup of coffee and a good friend, and pouring your heart out until you feel clean, emptied of your pain and struggles, filled with God's grace. 

At first, I wasn't too impressed with this book. The first handful of readings weren't very "deep," with nothing special about them. The second half, though, contained many chapters and passages that spoke to me. 

Recommended to anyone who enjoys devotionals designed for women of any age, needing some hope for their hearts. <3
