A Heart of Devotion - A MUST READ for young women!! Feb 15, 2007
A Heart of Devotion was the most important book that I've read in the past two years. It is a MUST READ for any woman in her twenties, who is struggling with the her personal choices and desires, and is looking for the keys to having a heart devoted to God. I tell you, I NEEDED THIS BOOK when I was in my twenties.
It is the story of Anika and Sherri, who are best friends and inseparable until one of them, Anika, starts dating Tyson Randall. These ladies had intimate relationships with God, and were good accountability and prayer partners, but the issues of life sidetracked them. The story is one in which these young women attempt to get back into God's will and fulfilling God's purpose for their lives.
This was a unique and compelling story, very much in step with what I as a young woman went through in my twenties, and I am sure young women today are going through the same tug of emotions. The author efficiently hit on a variety of common problems: the choices we make, the consequences of those choices, and praying and waiting on God for answers and for direction.
If you are a young woman in her 20's, this book is a must read. Trust me, it will change the way you think about life and what you are currently going through...
Go get this book. You won't regret it.
I so loved this book Dec 4, 2006
This book was right on time for me. I finished it this morning and had a hard time letting go. I would love to see this book have a sequel. My soul was ministered to by reading it. I'm a true lover of christian fiction. I so want a HEART OF DEVOTION right now. I'll be incorporating many of the scriptures into my life. I gave it 5 stars because the author did an excellent job applying scripture. There were some parts of the story that I would have like to see develop a bit more, and for that I'd rate it a 4, but overall a 5. Good Job Ms. McCollors.
Getting to the heart of real matters Sep 4, 2006
In her debut novel, Tia McCollors gives readers a taste of reality through the lives of best friends, Anisha and Sherri.
This thought-provoking story shares real issues of two attractive, single women who try to maintain their focus on their Christian walk. Though their lonely Friday nights are tallying up, Anisha and Sherri manage to hold onto their friendship and pact of dating accountability when the tables turn. Distractions come their way and sometimes hinder them, but their paths inevitably lead to faithfulness to God and friends.
McCollors has definitely given readers something to think about even after the story has ended. This is a great discussion tool for ALL singles.
Blessed by this book Aug 16, 2006
I picked this up in the airport and could not put it down. If you are a young single christian female this book will be something you can relate to. It was so real to me that I cried just like it was a movie. The best part of the book is how Anisha hears the voice of God whispering to her and then seeing what happens when she ignores him as well as what happens when she is obedient.
Awesome characters and real struggles (my true rating 4.5) May 8, 2006
A Heart of Devotion is a compelling story of the many spiritual battles women face today in a world full of temptation. At first I thought the women's spiritual walks were a bit too good to be true, that they were unbelievably faithful to God. Then the hard times came and their true hearts were revealed. Everyone is weak and anyone can be broken. That was the theme of A Heart of Devotion, and I loved it. I loved getting to know the women in the story. I found the characters to be ultimately very real, and in the end, very honest--especially the men. The author did a great job developing the different characters, especially Tyson and Xavier. In the end, God worked everything for the good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose. That's the story of Anisha and Sherri. It's a must read for anyone needing encouragement. It spoke to me in so many ways. This is a spiritually powerful book and I highly recommend it.
