Holley Gerth in her new book, “What Your Heart book coverWhat Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days” published by Revell gives us 52 Encouraging Truths to Hold On To.

From the Back Cover:   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.

There is not a one of us who has not had a hard day. Some of us can say we have even had a hard week. When those happen we feel zapped of all strength, discouraged, unfocused and a little lost. Holley Gerth has had those experiences as well and has gone to The Psalms for help for refreshment, nourishment and sustainment. There are fifty-two devotionals, one for every week of the year, though, I suppose they could be read daily no one is going to say no. At the end of each devotional is a prayer,”What My Heart Is Saying To You and a small space for thoughts then What My Heart is Hearing From You and more space for thoughts. We need help in our hard days and weeks this is the book to help you through them. It is a perfect gift for friends and family so they have something to turn to for their hard times.
