Book Review - Hope Your Heart Needs


Understanding God's character and how he loves us changed Holley Gerth's life in beautiful, powerful ways. She realized that the hope, joy, peace, and purpose we all long for can be found in his heart. Knowing who God is and the ways he cares for us empowers us to overcome the restlessness and stress we all tend to feel in this busy, overwhelming world.

Whether you're going through a hard time or simply dealing with the everyday challenges of life, you'll find encouragement, hope, and new strength on these pages. With Holley's help, you'll discover 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 what we've been searching for all along."


Holley Gerth is a bestselling author, licensed counselor, certified life coach, and speaker. She loves connecting with the hearts of women through her popular blog and books like Fiercehearted and You're Already Amazing. She's also cofounder of (in)courage and a partner with DaySpring. Holley lives with her husband, Mark, in the South. Hang out with her at


As always, Holley Gerth speaks to my heart and soothes my mind with her Biblical words of comfort.

This book has 52 encouraging devotionals that you could either do once a week, to last out the year, or do one a day (which I am doing) to help you remember who you are in God.  Each day starts with a Scripture and then the devotional is written from Holley's heart to yours. She encourages, uplifts, and makes you feel as though you are talking to your best friend over coffee. Finally, there is a promise of who God is for us in our lives.

Holley has experienced the same type of heart-aches that all of us do and she shares how God has given her strength during the hard times. I love that she reminds us that it's okay not to be okay all the time but that God is with us through it all.

I highly recommend this devotional, as I have all of Holley's books. She never disappoints and she always keeps things true to the Word of God. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars.
