I received a copy of Holley Gerth's new book What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days in exchange for my honest opinion of this book.
I love it.
There are days I get home from school, and the only thing I can think of is cutoff jeans, a fresh glass of water, and just simply putting my feet up.
Ever have days like that? Maybe not even one of *those* days, but a day when life just wears on you?
If so, you are going to relate to this book in a second.
Have you read any of Holley's writings before?
She has this fantastic way of writing that makes you feel like you're sitting down with a dear friend. A sister, an aunt, or that wise friend with whom you love spending time.
I've not yet met Holley in person, but from all I gather about her and read of her in her books, on Twitter, on Facebook, she's the real deal.
She cares about helping women know their worth in Christ, but perhaps more importantly -- she helps women know Christ.
Presenting ideas that we know that we know, Holley gives gentle reminders to us of how God is working in our lives, of what God has done and is doing for us, every moment of every day.
This book contains 52 short reflections, and includes space with guided questions for personal journaling for each reading. My first thought when I saw the number of readings, was, of course, one each week. But it's not that easy
And I can't stop thinking of how many hearts will be blessed by this book.
Thank you Holley Gerth and Revell Books for the opportunity to read this book and offer my review!
