Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is more than a good read, a gift for a hurting friend, or an outline of someone else's life with another happy ending; it is a resource for daily life, with lessons that go beyond any individual circumstance." -Rick and Debra Evans, Living In Faith Ministries

From the Inside Flap

The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it. -Proverbs 27:12 (NIV)

More About the Author

I am the author of 'Heartstone: A Journey out of the midnight of my soul.'

I am a man who should have lost it all but because of God's Amazing Grace, I am a committed follower of Jesus Christ who has made it my life's mission to see all who are hurting, lost, or disillusioned, find their redemption and restoration from a God who can, and will, rebuild the lost dreams of their fallen hearts.

● Sharing hope to a hurting world through the power of story

● Reaching people who have lost themselves to prosperity, power, and position

● Helping men discover their authentic manhood in Jesus Christ

● Inspiring fathers to step up and lead their families

There is an epic battle going on for your heart and God is pursuing you. When God takes us on a journey to help us re-discover who we really are in Him, a significant part of that process is discovering our heart. Finding the real and true heart He placed inside of us.

The challenge God faces in rescuing us is we have no idea how captive we are and how desperate we are. Rescuing the human heart is the hardest mission in the world.

He is after our hearts!

Every journey begins with a first step -- take the journey at heartstonejourney.com

I just finished your book and it was incredible! At different times during my reading, I found myself crying, smiling, agreeing and pondering your powerful testimony. Your poignant, revealing and honest account will certainly be a wonderful support and reference for those who are experiencing their own "Midnight Journey". Your personal poems, the sharing of your hurts and shortcomings, your provocative questions, the myriad of scripture quotes and other references, etc. all came together in an amazing way to present your story and invite others to truly learn who our God really is, how much He loves us and how much He wants us to love, trust and follow Him.

This book was an eye opener! As christians we lose sight that even WE need salvation...going through the motions isn't enough. We judge and forget that someday we'll be judged. The author captured his journey and reminded us that we need hope, love and understanding...how a HEART of STONE had come full circle to the HEARTSTONE!

EXCELLENT Book! I just finished it yesterday and it was definitely a blessing... Thank You So Much Tim Young!

It was heartbreaking to read all of what Tim had to go through on his walk to find peace and purpose in his life. Congratulations and God Bless for finding that peace and turning it into positive support and guidance that can impact others on their own walk through life's struggles.

I'm already recommending it to others and will continue to do so. It's an inspiration that can help people stay positive during tough times, no matter how hard they get.

We've all heard that the best things in life are found when we focus less on the destination, and more on the journey. There is no shortage of "stop and smell the roses" stories. Well, this is not one of those stories. Rather, Heartstone is an invitation to take a journey with a man who traveled a path many of us either have taken or have nearly taken -- a path of heartache, loss, regret and missed opportunity. In Heartstone, Tim Young bares his soul, almost literally, on the page. (One could argue that he bared it, quite literally, to God, as he searched for meaning in his life as a Christian who made some mistakes and learned firsthand the law of reaping and sowing, all too painfully.)

Don't expect convenient excuses or easy answers in this book. For those who think that being a Christian somehow offers a protective shield from the pain of this world, this book offers a "think again" challenge. As Young writes, "Life is not an injury-free sport." We all suffer through storms in life. Young's storm is divorce. To his credit, he doesn't try to sugarcoat the causes or oversimplify the effects. Rather, he exposes the wound in his heart over and over, exposing the reader to his self-blame, his loneliness, his doubt and, eventually, his journey and exploration of faith and healing.

A grape cannot become wine without going through the winepress (and coming through the other side as something transformed and utterly different from when it began the process). Young's journey is no less transformative. A reader learns what it's like to journey through the midnight of Young's soul. Through Young's story, we learn that it's only through the power of the Spirit of Jesus Christ that one can be made whole again after the pain of a divorce.

I have just finished reading Hearthstone by Tim Young
I am privileged to be very close to this journey and testimony. My son and I have walked and climbed the mountains together and at times a journey together.
I would highly recommend this book, because I feel it is not a personal experience but is applicable to many who may be walking a similar journey, it is quite possible at the end of reading this book you may find your answers and a closer relationship with God.

Here is a book written by a man who went through a very stormy winter season in life and emerged victoriously. He has bared his soul in an effort to encourage others with his message of hope...and succeeded. Though his mountaintop experience took years of grueling fortitude, it is evident his time spent in the valley prepared him to obey the call of God upon his life and helped strengthen his faith and trust.

Tim Young is very transparent in sharing all that he went through in a very dark time of his life. His book became a devotional guide for me. Tim shares his relationship with Christ as he travels through the various levels of his journey into the light. You will find much to glean from his experience. What he learns may very well keep you from going into such a valley.

I finished this book about a year ago but never wrote a review on Amazon until now. I still think about some of the nuggets I got when I read this book, which is just a great testimony to the lasting impact its content has had on me

When Google+ first launched, many of us added each other with similar interests and discovered new tastes, books, websites, and so on. At some point, Tim announced the Kindle version of his book was free on Amazon for a day, so I grabbed it.

In Heartstone, the author shares personal gut wrenching stories related to his having gotten divorced and the way it shattered His world and the journey God brought him on through it all. It's particularly easy to follow along when he shares the details of his story, but sometimes when he shares certain poems I'm not sure I follow the train of thought completely. But otherwise, this book is rich with some very interesting and revelatory insights into "stones" in the Scripture God spoke to Him about. I don't want to spoil it or give it away, but I personally was more enthralled with the way he ties all his thoughts together with a common thread that weaves through all the chapters and makes the reader look at certain things in Scripture differently than before. For that, Tim has done an excellent job.

I also didn't read it very fast (which I normally do with almost any book), but each short chapter is rich with insight, especially the ones when he's taking time to dive into the Scriptures. I had to chew and process things. For me, that is a GOOD thing about any book.

I recommend getting this book, and saving it for when you really feel you are going through the ringer, as I'm sure the personal insights and experiences Tim shares in this book will be a huge source of comfort and peace for those who could use it in that light. Forget reading certain Psalms when you're feeling certain ways. Pick up this book and read it when you're going through a dark night of the soul.
