Reviews - What do customers think about Stories For The Heart?
Tear jerker Nov 25, 2008
I found a later edition ~Stories for the Mothers Heart~ at a rummage sale a couple years ago to give to my Mom. She absolutely loved it and cries everytime she reads it! I bought her this one for her birthday and once again she's crying whenever she cracks it open and just loves the stories. She said that this book is just as good as the first one I gave her and it touches her heart with every story. So, on my Mom's behalf I would definitely recommend this book.

uplifting to my spirit Jan 24, 2006
This book was such an encouragement to me. It had approx 100 short stories that ministered to my heart. It is not something that should be read all at once but in bite size pieces
Some stories are inspiring, most lack eloquence. Apr 3, 2002
I found this book to be somewhat lacking in inspiration and encouragement. However, some of the stories are heartwarming and teardropping. The problem with this book is that you have to be in the situation where you need to be inspired without double and where you are at a tough stage of your life. I'm a happy person and reading this book didn't teach me much. It is just a hobbily read. I would recommend that you think of your situation before you buy this book.
