What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days: 52 Encouraging Truths to Hold on to
In this uplifting book, Holley Gerth invites readers to sit down with her to be filled with the strength, peace, and joy that come from God's promises to us. Each of the 52 devotions based on the Psalms will help weary women remember that God is good and we're all in this together. Whether it's a bad hair day or a broken heart, Holley offers hope and encouragement to get us through whatever life brings.
Women need that kind of encouragement because we all have hard days--days that make us want to give up, retreat inside ourselves, and drown our sorrows in a pint of ice cream. And while we may crave all sorts of things to ease the pain we feel in our hearts, what we really need is truth. We need to be confident in God's character and his promises. We need to remember--and celebrate--who he made us to be. And we need exactly the kind of encouragement Holley Gerth loves to offer.
Cafe Lily's Review:
Holley Gerth's new devotional is warm, encouraging and conversational. I couldn't help but feel inspired and uplifted, while going through this book.
Every time I read Holley's writing, it is like having a chat over coffee with a good friend. She is easy to relate to and seems to write exactly what women feel and think. Each devotional has an accompanying verse from the Psalms and a small section at the end of each chapter, for women to journal their thoughts.
I love the design and appearance of this devotional - perfect for gift giving! This book was so encouraging - I highly recommend that you get one for yourself, and extras to give away!
