Hope Your Heart Needs by Holley Gerth Review



Understanding more of God’s character and how he loves us changed bestselling author Holley Gerth’s life in beautiful, powerful ways. She realized that she didn’t have to settle for “I’m fine” when there was someone whispering to her in every moment, “You’re mine.” The hope, joy, peace, and purpose she longed for were already there, in the heart of God.

Now in 52 devotional readings, Holley shares with women the answer to the restlessness they feel in their hearts that keeps them hurrying, striving, pushing. She shows them that “the God who scattered stars like diamonds across the velvet of the universe, the keeper of every sparrow, the maker of us all, is inviting us to draw closer to him. He is the place where our hearts can go on the hard days and the happy ones, in the highs and lows, when we are sad or frustrated or downright giddy. He is what we’ve been searching for all along.”

My Thoughts

This devotional is wonderful for the days when hope can be hard to find. Broken down into 52 entries, each one is based on an aspect of God’s character. They can be read in order or out of order based on what you feel called to read.

I picked this book up to read during a time of uncertainty based on some medical issues I’ve been experiencing and it was great to go to the table of contents and choose entries based on my needs (Comforter, Healer, Refuge). Holley’s writing is very relateable. She relays personal stories along with stories and lessons from scripture in a way that is enjoyable to read but also packs a big punch in a few pages.

This is a great devotional to pick up during times when hope is needed but also during times when time is short because each devotional is only about 4-5 pages long.

I also love the presentation of the book. It’s a small size that would fit nicely in a purse and the cover is very pretty. This would make a great gift.

I recommend this book to anyone who needs a daily dose of hope.
