I recently had the pleasure of reviewing Holley Gerth’s new book release of “Coffee for Your Heart”, which was formerly “God’s Heart for You”. I loved it! I have read many of her books over the years and I love her writing style which is beautifully unique and heartfelt. She bares her soul and speaks from a genuinely authentic place. Holley’s love for the Lord is so apparent within the pages of her books.
“Coffee for Your Heart” is an amazing book of 40 faith-filled reminders of encouraging affirmations of how beloved we truly are to the Lord. Using scripture and life experiences she sheds light on God’s amazing grace in our lives. Each chapter ends with a few soul-searching reflection questions to answer and a beautifully written poem.
Holley Gerth is a wonderful author who writes with a very honest, heartfelt, authentic, faith-filled voice that speaks to your soul. Her words revive your spirit and bring hope to your weary days. “Coffee for Your Heart” was the soul medicine I needed to digest in this particular season of my life. The life-giving words lifted me up and gave rest to the weary, wounded places in my soul.
I love that each daily reminder is a quick read yet rich with inspiring, powerful truths. Some of the uplifting topics within the chapters are; forgiven, loved, empowered, carried, redeemed, chosen, blessed, called, and His forever. Holley writes about who we are in Christ and our relationship with Him. We are His masterpieces. We are His beloved.
Some of my favorite quotes in “Coffee for Your Heart” by Holley Gerth are;
- “Perhaps the reason our hearts long for romance is because our relationship with God is the love story—the one our hearts were created to be a part of for all eternity.”
- “Yes, He is committed to refining us, but He is more interested in the relationship along the way. God doesn’t need anything from us. Sometimes we can focus so much on what we need to change, how we should be different, or the impurities that still need to be removed that we forget that God values people more than perfection.”
- “All of the mistakes and failures you remember, all the secrets you run from, all the regrets and remorse…they are all gone. Every one of them has been torn from the story of your life. You are forgiven. You are accepted. You are loved.”
- “We all long to be fully known--and loved anyway. God placed that desire in us, and only He can fulfill it. He invites us to far more than a place where everybody knows our names. Instead, He offers a true home for our hearts where we’re always welcome, deeply loved, and known completely.”
Holley Gerth is a passionate writer, encourager, and warrior for Christ, and has a heart’s desire to help others. I know you will be blessed by her soulful messages in this book or any others she has written. I have been blessed by “Coffee for Your Heart” and I think you will be too!
Holley Gerth and her husband Mark have a beautiful daughter Lovelle. Holley cofounded (in)courage, a wonderful online community of talented writers and creatives sharing their inspiration with women from all over. After receiving her Master’s Degree in counseling, Holley became a certified life coach. She served as a writer and editorial director at Dayspring for over a decade.
I hope you decide to read “Coffee for Your Heart” or any of Holley Gerth’s amazing books, you will be hooked on her and her writing like I am!
