Review: Devotions for the Hungry Heart by:Shellie Rushing Tomlinson

 Devotions for the Hungry Heart: Chasing Jesus Six Days from Sunday
About the Book:
This simple little book of story-based devotions will change your world, one day at a time.

"Whether you have a healthy craving for more Jesus, or the barely discernible taste for a relationship with Him that seems beyond your reach, the glorious truth is that God put that hunger in your heart in the first place, and He is more willing to fan that flame than you or I could ever be."
--From the Introduction

Shellie Rushing Tomlinson, the Belle of All Things Southern, is back with a devotional guide for the Jesus-hungry heart. Grounded in scripture and offered in the author’s signature storytelling style, this devotional invites you to God's table for a continual feast. With six prominent themes including Sharing, Needing, Celebrating, Praying, Surrendering, and Being Intentional, you'll be challenged and encouraged to develop God-honoring traits in your spiritual life.

A delightful companion book to Tomlinson’s Hungry Is a Mighty Fine Sauce, Devotions for the Hungry Heart features a bonus full-color insert featuring more than a dozen mouthwatering recipes plus photos. You're guaranteed to find nourishment for your body as well as your spirit!

My Review:
 A girl needs a good strong devotional to get through the days ahead, especially when those days are laced with a lot of uncertainty and stress. In Shellie Rushing Tomlinson's book Devotions for the Hungry Heart she conveys the things we need the most from the bread of life. Food for the spirit never looked so good, y'all!

 She takes us along on her spiritual journey in the hopes that we will learn from it and see Christ in it. A hungry heart, it turns out is a heart full of many things that one might not expect, at first. The author teaches us those things and in a mighty way. I really enjoyed her book for many reasons but the fact that she is southern to the core, may have swayed me a little further. This book is a great way to grow closer to Jesus.

 A typical devotion with a backbone of the Bible with life lessons sprinkled throughout and a rendering of Christ Jesus that will make you slap your mama. A fantastic way to get you some Jesus!
