Gail Grace Nordskog has this very inspiration book that includes the stories of ten women who have followed the calling from God in their lives and helped others in significant ways. Each chapter is written by a different woman and basically give their backgrounds and what they have done.
One of the things that I like the best about Hearts of Purpose is that it shows us that people from all walks of life get called to do God’s work and follow through on it. A couple of women that stand out in my mind are Marilyn Pulis and Nita Hanson. I really enjoyed reading Marilyn’s story of what it was like for her growing up on the farm. She married a pastor and they ministered together, not just in churches but has missionaries in different countries. Nita’s story just pulled at my heart. Her childhood was filled with insecurity. I was encouraged with her story of her Christian walk and the missions trips that she took part in and how it changed her life.
Nita writes of five steps God takes us through, giving us what we need, when we need it.
First, God sees a situation and has compassion for what those involved are going through.
Second. God, brings the situation to our attention.
Third, God tells us to to help with the situation.
Fourth, God tells us to take what we have and use it to help with the situation.
Fifth. God will give us more than we need.
This was a very encouraging book to read. Through reading these women’s stories, the reader will be reaffirmed that God does supply all our needs and that when He puts in our heart to do something, that He will supply what we need to do it. We will be the ones blessed by doing what God asks us to.
This is a hard covered book with thicker than normal pages. The pages have an artistic backgrounds and the colors of the pages change with the chapters. I really liked that this book comes with an attached book mark ribbon. This book would make a very elegant gift.
I received a copy of this book from BookFun and the author. I have written an honest review.
