Book Review: What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days

Cover Art 

From the Back:

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.

This book is the perfect companion to Holley's book You're Going to Be Okay.

My Reflections:

When I received this book I dove in straight away. It is small enough to fit in your purse and encouraging enough to fill your day with inspiration and hope.

This book really spoke to me, it is filled with nuggets of wisdom. As I read this book I had the impression of having a good heart felt conversation with my BFF.

My favorite aspect of this book was the sections where you are encouraged to write down your reflections. It includes a prayer and space to add your own words, along with an additional journal exercise that prompt you to reflect on what God may be impressing on your heart. At the end of each reading there is a verse that pertains to the topic. Absolutely a wonderful resource!

I would recommend this book to any woman who would like a little encouragement to start the day. I will be keeping this one beside my bed for nightly rereading!
