Book Review - "Reclaiming Your Heart"

Denise Hildreth Jones' latest novel, "Secrets over Sweet Tea," (you can read my review here) is the companion to her latest non-fiction book, "Reclaiming Your Heart: a journey back to laughing, loving, and living." Both of these books will really make you think about your own lives, where you have been, where you are going and changes you would like to and need to make in your own lives. 

"Reclaiming Your Heart" really focuses on our heart - such a vital part of our bodies and life, including our interactions with others and how we each feel about ourselves.  Denise really opens up and shares her own heart - her moments of hurting, her moments of feeling like giving up, her moments of just going through the motions instead of savoring the moments and enjoying life.  Each chapter is filled with Denise's thoughts, personal experiences and stories from the Bible as well.  Most of the chapters focus on a certain "type" of heart, for example there is a chapter focusing on the angry heart, the critical heart, the weary heart and the shamed heart to name a few.  To help the reader go more in-depth and get even more blessings from this book, there is a 10-week study that can be downloaded at

Reading through this book is like sitting down with Denise chatting over coffee (or sweet tea!). Denise shares her heart as if she is talking with a close girlfriend and is seeking to share and help all at the same time.  I highly recommend both this book and the companion novel for every woman to read as both are enjoyable and uplifting.  I am looking forward to rereading this book and working through the 10-week study as well. 

*Thank you to the author and Tyndale Publishers for the complimentary copy of this book.*
