I enjoy devotional books, if they have a purpose and are good. They allow me to do what I love, which is read, but they also allow me to think, pray, learn and grow in my personal and spiritual life.

Marie Chapian's, God's Heart for You is a hardcover collection of over sixty new and "best" of her previous devotionals. Based on Scripture, the reader is thoughtfully invited to share an intimate time with God.

God's Heart for You has something for every personal and spiritual need or want the reader might have. Many of the devotionals held special meaning for me and I suggest they will for others.

"When Patience Seems Impossible," complete with Scripture verses spoke to me in a way I needed, just when I read it. "Lord, I've Got Family Problems" is something every family should prayerfully read and live.

But it was "Be Brave and Do Hard Things" that convicted me in a way I didn't think possible. If Ms. Chapian doesn't mind, I will photocopy that one page and hang it by my bathroom mirror where I can see it daily and strive to live it.

I attempted to choose some special devotionals to share and realized the specialness of them all. This is a book to be read and reread. I now have a new devotional to accompany me in my life journey.

Armchair Interviews says: God's Heart for You will give you a way to have the intimate conversation with God that is necessary to grow and flourish in your personal and spiritual life.
