Devotions for the Hungry Heart: Chasing Jesus Six Days from Sunday by Shellie Rushing Tomlinson

My Review

Shellie Rushing Tomlinson’s book. Devotions for the Hungry Heart: Chasing Jesus Six Days from Sunday, is a delightful devotional.

The book features 20 weeks running Monday through Saturday. Each week has a personal anecdote to illustrate each of the days with Monday being titled-A Hungry Heart Is Surrendered, Tuesday-A Hungry Heart Is Intentional, Wednesday-A Hungry Heart Is Praying, Thursday-A Hungry Heart Is Celebrating, Friday-A Hungry Heart Is Needy and Saturday-A Hungry Heart Is Sharing. Every devotional is short, only 1 to 1 ½ pages and ends with a Bible verse. Also, included in the middle section is a short, colorfully illustrated set of recipes.

I enjoyed reading Devotions for the Hungry Heart. However, there are 4 caveats: 1) the pages are not a pure white, but more of a dusky color, 2) the color of the text is a blue-green color (almost a turquoise or teal), 3) the verse at the end the day’s devotion is a golden or gilded color and 4) this is not an in-depth study, but more of an ending for your daily devotional. The first three things make it a little difficult to read. Nonetheless, it is well worth the effort.

Tomlinson writes in a folksy, sharing a cup of coffee kind of way that I enjoyed. I am sure she would attribute it to her Southern roots, as she does for many aspects of the book. Her stories made me wish I knew her or that she was a neighbor of mine.

I received this book from Barbour Publishing and NetGalley. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.

Publisher’s Summary

This simple little book of story-based devotions will change your world, one day at a time.

“Whether you have a healthy craving for more Jesus, or the barely discernible taste for a relationship with Him that seems beyond your reach, the glorious truth is that God put that hunger in your heart in the first place, and He is more willing to fan that flame than you or I could ever be.”

  1. Thank you. I too am an absolutely Christian writer and though His Gifting even fiction stories have HIS Heartbeat. Is your book available on Amazon? is it an e-book? Where can I purchase. Amazon has all my books now and (personally I prefer a book to anything on e-book) they are also all on line. I have two meditation books Our God Lives! and Peace! I would love to obtain your Devotions for the Hungry Heart. Very glad we have made a ‘connection’. Please Keep blogging.

    • Hi, Faye!
      I actually didn’t write the book, I just reviewed it. All the books that you see on my blog are ones that I have reviewed.
      I think you can get it through Amazon. However, if you do a search for it by name, you should get a list of places it is sold.
      Happy to have made a connection, too!
      Blessings~
