Often the biggest obstacle to living out our faith is our own doubt--about our worth, our abilities, our relationship with God, and situations in our lives. A Confident Heart gives voice to the questions, doubts, struggles, and hopes so many women have. Author Renee Swope shows us how to identify, overcome, and learn from our self-doubts so that we can live confidently in God's assurance, truth, and grace. Perfect for women's small groups or individuals, A Confident Heart is an authentic, insight-filled and encouraging message for any woman who wants to exchange defeating thought patterns with biblical truth that will transform the way she thinks, feels, and lives.

My take on this book:
"A Confident Heart" is a book that speaks to women's hearts. Filled with sixty devotionals that touch on a myriad of subjects that we women face at some point and time in our lives. The first thing that really spoke to me was the fact that each devotional opens up with a scripture, which is great for getting me into the right mindframe to begin the reading that follows.After each devotional there is a short prayer, and then a segment called  what God says which is just that and normally focuses  on whatever the devotional was about. I found the author's voice authentic and very encouraging, the personal feel this devotional had made it very easy for me to connect with. I am one of those people who rarely uses a devotional cover to cover and this one was no exception, I used the table of contents to jump around to readings that really spoke to me. A few that really stood out were turning worry into worship, measuring up,when you feel empty,and he cares about you. While I have used this devotional daily, I can honestly see this being one that will be reread often. Anyone who is dealing with self doubt will certainly find this an uplifting and encouraging read, although I think this is a wonderful devotional for all women. Perfect for gift giving, "A Confident Heart"would be perfect for a women's study group. 

A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review.
