The book titled, “Your Heart’s Desire: 14 truths that will forever change the way you love and are loved” by Sheri Rose Shepherd is a book that aims to talk about love, a concept that as Christians we strive to practice and often struggle to show as well. The author uses anecdotes from her life and shares with a lot of honesty in order to share biblical truth. In the back of the book, it claims that the author does “real life” coaching and as a reader, I found it to be true. She uses both trials and successes in her writing and uses both to point the reader to the Word and to Christ, who is the only way love truly comes about.
One of the beautiful facts about the book is that it is written to women, regardless of their current life situation. She writes it for the “married woman who desires more for her marriage, for the single woman who desires a godly man to love her, and for the divorced woman who desires and deserves a second chance to find love again”. She devotes the time to address women all throughout the book and uses a lot of scripture as the backbone to her advice and wisdom bits. She addresses a lot of topics from communication, patience, submission to husbandly leadership and to leaving a godly legacy.
Personally, this book was straight to the point yet very biblical as well. It is fresh, easy to understand and filled with a lot of hope in Christ, who is our only mediator and life. I recommend this book for women to read.
I received a free copy of this book from Tyndale in exchange for a
review. I was not asked to write a positive review in exchange for a
copy, but choose to write a review that is constructive, honest and
helpful to other consumers.
