Review & Book Club Invite | What Your Heart Needs For The Hard Days by Holley Gerth

We all have days that make us want to pull the covers back over our heads and eat a dozen cupcakes.

Thankfully, Jesus said we don’t “live on bread alone”–that includes cupcakes–“but on every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). What we really need is truth.

BOOK DESCRIPTION:

We all have days that make us want to pull the covers back over our heads and eat a dozen cupcakes.

Thankfully, Jesus said we don’t “live on bread alone”–that includes cupcakes–“but on every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4). What we really need is truth.

If you’re tired, discouraged, or feel a little empty inside, my prayer is that by the end of our time together, you’ll be refreshed and nourished in a way that will sustain you through whatever the future may hold.

Remember, you’re not alone, my friend.

In this uplifting book, Holley Gerth invites you to be filled with the strength, peace, and joy that come from God’s promises. Each of the 52 devotions based on the Psalms will help you remember that God is good and we’re all in this together.

MY REVIEW

I absolutely love Holley Gerth and her heart for women!
And I am absolutely head-over-heels for her latest devotional, What Your Heart Needs For The Hard Days.
Don’t let the size fool ya! This DEVO may be small in size, but it’s BIG in heart!
I enjoyed the devotionals so much, this is one of my favorite devotional books I’ve come across in awhile. These 52 devotionals delve into the book of Psalms….a book well known for it’s heart-healing abilities.
I looked forward each day to reading even just the title of the devotional, these really are truths that, when internalized, have the power to change everything! God is thinking about you today, God doesn’t expect you to be “fine”, God is Someone you can rely on- are just a few examples.
Holley shares stories from the heart in each devotional and then draws the connection for readers to apply the truths of Scripture to their own hearts. “What My Heart Is Saying To You” is a prayer prompt found at the end of each devotional that gently guides readers into a time of pouring their hearts to God.
“What My Heart Is Hearing From You” is something I loved and thought was really unique (you don’t see this in most devotional or prayer books). It’s a chance for the readers to be still and listen for what God is speaking to them. There is even a space for readers to write out their thoughts on the page.
As a bonus there are reading prompts to take your experience even further by reading through the Psalms with selections each day.
This really is the perfect little DEVO to heal your heart!
