What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days

Holley Gerth


About the Book:


In this uplifting book, Holley Gerth invites readers to sit down with her to be filled with the strength, peace, and joy that come from God’s promises to us. Each of the 52 devotions based on the Psalms will help weary women remember that God is good and we’re all in this together. Whether it’s a bad hair day or a broken heart, Holley offers hope and encouragement to get us through whatever life brings.

Women need that kind of encouragement because we all have hard days–days that make us want to give up, retreat inside ourselves, and drown our sorrows in a pint of ice cream. And while we may crave all sorts of things to ease the pain we feel in our hearts, what we really need is truth. We need to be confident in God’s character and his promises. We need to remember–and celebrate–who he made us to be. And we need exactly the kind of encouragement Holley Gerth loves to offer.

My Review:


What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days is a wonderful devotional filled with 52 devotions based on the Psalms that will help you remember that God is good. That He is always there for you no matter what you have been through and no matter how many hard days you are having.


Holley gives us truths from God’s word to help heal our weary hearts, she has broken this book up into five chapters which are titled:


  • God Wants to Lift You Up When Life Lets You Down
  • God Will Give You Courage, Not Condemnation
  • God Will Never Reject You
  • God is Bigger Than Your Problems
  • God Is Not Tired of You


Just looking at these titles makes my heart skip a beat. I feel this book was written for me. If you are searching for a great devotional that will pick you up, show you that God loves you no matter what you have been through or are going through, then What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days is the book for you.


Thank you the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest review.
