What Your Heart Needs for the Hard Days by 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 Thoughts
Due to a mix-up in the sending out of my copy of this book I only received this book a couple days ago and haven't gotten very far in it. I could have just rushed and finished it but I kinda wanted to savor it and read it like it was intended to be read. So this will be a rather short review based on the few sections I've read!
I have loved all of Holley's books that I've read and this daily devotional is no different. Each entry is short without being too short and it filled with a well-written truth. The author did a great job of packing a lot of power into a couple pages to read each day. And at the end of each devotional there is the start of a prayer for you to finish and a place to write the response God gives. This is a fantastic little book that I highly recommend to everyone who's looking for a daily devotional!
