The Heart-Shaped Life Daily Devotional by Karen Moore

Book description:

Inspiration for a Heart-Shaped Life
What if you could see the world through the lens of the heart moment by moment?
What if God inspired you to walk “heart first” into every life event and circumstance, no matter what it was?
What if love was your number one priority? Love of God, love of others, and love of yourself? 

Inspired by 1 Corinthians 13:2: "If I had the gift of prophecy and knew all about what is going to happen in the future, knew everything about everything, but didn’t love others, what good would it do?" . . .the Heart-Shaped Life series will encourage you to live life “heart first.” 

The Heart-Shaped Life Daily Devotional provides refreshing thoughts, prayers, and scripture selections to help you discover the best path to the good life. . .which is all about LOVE! 

My review:

  When I first saw this devotional, I thought it was for women. It has that look. However, after looking through it and reading several of the daily devotionals in it, I can say it is for men and women both.

 This IS a 365 day devotional, plus it has one for Leap Year, February 29. Each day has a title, followed by a Scripture verse, then the actual devotional, and ending with a short prayer. An aside: I like the looks of each page, a lot of red and blue.

 Each devotional is centered around love in some sort of day, and the author does a great job of getting a whole year out of that one topic..... but it is something we need.

 I found the devotionals I read very encouraging, interesting, and helpful in this area of loving God, others, and even myself. I definitely recommend it - for men and women.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
