From Publishers Weekly
Hoekstra invites readers to imagine their lives as a picture frame: at the center should be Jesus, surrounded by straight edges labeled heart, soul, mind and strength. In other words, readers are to give their all to Christ, reserving nothing. In this Easter devotional, Hoekstra uses examples from the Bible to help readers see the blessings of having an undivided heart, demonstrating that although biblical characters such as David or Stephen were sinful people, they loved God wholeheartedly. While the book is geared for a general audience, women will most appreciate its message, particularly since many of its 40 biblical meditations (such as those on Proverbs 31 or on the "mother's heart" of Mary) pertain directly to women's experiences.
