Book Description

March 18, 2014
You believe in God. You’re trying to serve Him.
But do you know how to truly love Him—and let Him love you?

As a Bible-believing churchgoer, author Shellie Tomlinson harbored a secret in her good-girl heart. She longed for something more than routine faith; she wanted to love God with a genuine, all-consuming passion. So she got honest with Him: “I admit it. I don’t love you like I should, but I want to love you. Help me!”

In Heart Wide Open, Shellie invites you to answer the call of your restless heart and refuse to settle for anything less than the intimate friendship of God. Through her heartfelt and honest words, you’ll find practical inspiration to help you…
·   exchange your “just enough Jesus” mindset for an all-out pursuit of Him
·   put sizzle in your Bible study by asking God to show you the wonder of His Word
·   trade formulaic devotions for a devoted life

Are you ready to stop struggling to make time for God and instead live every moment with God? Discover how to live with your heart wide open.

My Review:
This is a good book. The author is able to share in a down to earth way about how to open your heart wide to God. She shares stories of her life that helps us see  she truly understands what it is like to need a true personal relationship with God and not just going through the motions of weekly church services.
I think we all can learn something through her experience and to question do we really love God with all our heart and if not what do we do about it. If we truly seek to have a deeper walk with the Lord all we need to do is seek the Lord with all our hearts and spend time with God in prayer and study of His Word.
I would recommend this book to all my friends.
