Devotions for the Hungry Heart by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson Review


Description: This simple little book of story-based devotions will change your world, one day at a time.

“Whether you have a healthy craving for more Jesus, or the barely discernible taste for a relationship with Him that seems beyond your reach, the glorious truth is that God put that hunger in your heart in the first place, and He is more willing to fan that flame than you or I could ever be.” 
–From the Introduction

Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, the Belle of All Things Southern, is back with a devotional guide for the Jesus-hungry heart. Grounded in scripture and offered in the author’s signature storytelling style, this devotional invites you to God’s table for a continual feast. With six prominent themes including Sharing, Needing, Celebrating, Praying, Surrendering, and Being Intentional, you’ll be challenged and encouraged to develop God-honoring traits in your spiritual life.

A delightful companion book to Tomlinson’s Hungry Is a Mighty Fine SauceDevotions for the Hungry Heart features a bonus full-color insert featuring more than a dozen mouthwatering recipes plus photos. You’re guaranteed to find nourishment for your body as well as your spirit!

My Thoughts: I really love this devotional. The author writes in a very approachable and relatable way. She uses relevant illustrations for the verse and although the devotions are only 1 or 2 pages, they pack a big punch.

It contains 20 weeks of devotions, one for each day of the week minus Sunday. The devotions are not dated so it’s easy to start at any time. The book also contains recipes and photos, which is something I’ve never seen in a devotional book before. The recipes look tasty but a little fancier than what I prefer (but cooking is not my thing).

The devotionals always make me think. This is the perfect book to keep on your nightstand and read in the morning before starting the day. Reading these helps the reader to fill their spiritual bellies and they only take a few minutes to get through.

I highly recommend this book as a gift to yourself or someone else.

My Rating: 5 stars

I won this book from Goodreads First Reads giveaways. All opinions are my own.
