The Longing In Me
About the Book:
Do your desires have you going around in circles? You may be looking for fulfillment in all the wrong places.
You vowed you’d never repeat the same mistakes—yet you find yourself right where you started. What is it that keeps drawing you back into the same old traps? The fact is, your longings are built from the blueprint of your needs: for protection, for love, for God. And those needs aren’t going anywhere.
Sheila speaks candidly about the trials in her life, including the heartache of her first marriage, and intertwines her story with the biblical saga of King David. As both Sheila’s and David’s stories make clear, some cravings are misguided, but they all stem from the same hunger—and they will haunt you until that hunger gets satisfied properly.
If you keep reaching out to the wrong people at the wrong times in your own life, The Longing in Me will help you understand that your cravings are not the problem. It’s where they lead you that makes all the difference.

I first heard of Sheila Walsh 6 years ago when I first attended a Women of Faith event. When I heard her speak, I knew I had to find her books and begin reading them. She impacted my life greatly and I knew it was a God thing that I was able to go to WOF at the last moment. Since then I have read almost all of Sheila’s books and heard her speak two more times. When I first seen she was coming out with a new book, The Longing In Me, I knew I would be in for a treat. I was honored to be chosen to be on her launch team as well as be able to review this book for the publisher.
The Longing In Me is the book for any woman who is ready to make a change in their lives and let God lead you. Sheila is open and honest about the trials in her life and intertwines her story with the story of King David. This book is for those women who find themselves going in circles, making the same mistakes over and over again, and whose looking for fulfillment in all the wrong places. Sheila dives in and gives an accurate account of scripture and goes in details with the story of David.
I constantly find myself making the same mistakes over and over again and keep asking why do I this? Simply put, I’m not trusting God enough. I know I can change this with the help from a God who loves me. This book is a life changer and I highly recommend it to anyone who is ready to change. Change is hard but you don’t have to do it alone!!
Thank you to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book for my honest, unbiased review.
