Book Review - the Heart of the Matter - I'm Giving One Away!

There certainly is no shortage of devotionals on the market, but Heart of the Matter is one which could very well be life changing for your or for someone you know.  They say, "Change which goes deeper than the surface of our lives happens over the long haul as we daily remember and connect the truths of the gospel to our lives. Every day we need to be reminded—in different ways—how Jesus, God’s own Son, came to this world to save us from sin, sorrow, and death. The promises of God, which are all 'yes' in Jesus, change the way we view ourselves, our circumstances, and other people. This devotional gives a daily reminder of these life-changing truths."
