In the second part of the book, my heart broke as I learned about the life-crushing fathers who caused Catherine and the the other girls to deeply distrust men in general and to resist any kind of belief in the unconditional love of a Heavenly Father. Because I had a loving earthly father, I hadn't realized before how easy it had been for me to rely on a heavenly father and how difficult trusting would be for someone not so richly blessed.
The carefully chosen questions at the end of each chapter provoked thought while the accompanying pertinent scriptures provided helpful answers. This exercise would be great for use in small group discussions as well as personal devotions.
In the last part of the book, the beautifully crafted letter addressed to the heart of each wounded young lady must surely help in the healing process. Reading the book inspired me and helped me understand hurting people better. I pray that I will grow in the grace I need to trust my Heavenly Father more and to be an instrument of His love to others. Thanks, Denise, for this wonderful book!

Learning to Trust Your Heavenly Father by Denise George

This book has universal applications for women in all walks of life. Denise George in a profound way, at the end of each story/chapter, uses questions, prayer, and applicable Scripture to enhance one's ability to work through feelings, struggles, pain, and hurt. Although she does speak of specific situations throughout the book, her application and scriptural references can reach the hearts of any woman regardless of her particular situation. She ushers us all into a posture of prayer which enables her readers to truly experience the love of our Heavenly Father. Everyone has struggles in this life. However, no matter what your struggle/story is, this book is certainly applicable and will benefit you. B. Coyne, Author, Birmingham, AL.

Denise George's book captured my attention immediately! Although my Dad was a firm, yet loving father, interested and involved in my upbringing, I have encountered several women who did not have this relationship. Absenteeism, whether emotional or actual, for them was hurtful. And verbal or physical abuse, carried out in several instances, stymied relationships with the men in their lives.
This insightful book portrays weeding out hurts and disappointments in the garden of our hearts, and re-planting with seeds of forgiveness. Her words of advice promote objectivity, healing, and healthy new growth. I highly recommend this book, written with clarity and wisdom.

Author Denise George writes from the heart in her latest book "Learning to Trust Your Heavenly Father (Even if You Can't/Couldn't Trust Your Human Father). George has a gift for weaving personal experiences and anecdotes into a Christian book that speaks to readers. Thank you, Denise, for sharing this inspirational text with others.

This is a must read! God DOES love His girls! Let Denise walk you through the lives of girls/women who have been hurt/abused by earthly fathers and point you to God's ever loving, accepting, healing character! God's love was proved for you on the cross. You were worth dying for so you could chose eternity with Him! You are not stuck in your past. Let Denise show you how you CAN get past the tragedy/hurt in your life.
God bless you Denise!

I personally know Denise and have been greatly blessed by her writings! I have read "God's heart, God's hands" and "God's gentle whisper" and experienced a lot more, specially in my prayer life, of a life with Christ! Her words are encouraging and gentle, reflecting a life that truly loves the Lord and longs to do his will! I truly recommend any of her writings to y'all!
God bless!

Trust is a huge issue for many women especially as we relate to God as our Heavenly Father when we may not have had an earthly father as a good role model. If this is something you struggle with or know someone who does, you can find sound biblical help through this book. You will be trusting God like never before!

I read this book and was moved to tears many times for I could see myself in so many of the different women. I didn't have a good relationship with my father for many years, things that I always kept to myself because I was too ashamed to talk about them.

I didn't want to talk about them, for I was afraid of hurting my daddy's memory for my child and I was just so hurt every time I would try.

Denise told the stories of the women in such a way that I realized that I didn't have to carry this weight around with me anymore. I could put the past to rest and learn to heal.

I loved the stories from the Bible that told of horrible fathers that I had never even thought about. She opened my eyes and heart to the wondrous love that God has had for me all of this time, but every time I would begin to trust, I would pull away for fear of being hurt. I've done this all of my life, letting it hold me back from loving relationships both here on earth and with God.

I am going to use this book as a help to heal and plant a new garden for myself.
Thank you Denise for sharing this wonderful and loving testimony with me. I will read it often and share your beautiful writings with all of the hurting women I know.

Denise George addresses the hurts and the results of the hurts inflicted on women by faulty fathers. Many kinds of abuse and neglect are cited. Not only are today's abused women scarred, but Ms. George also points out biblical examples of women who were injured by far-from-perfect fathers, such as Tamar and the daughters of Lot. She reveals the good, bad, and ugly of women who have moved on and can now trust their Heavenly Father and those who have destroyed their own lives with bitterness. In this book Ms. George writes letters to each of the women she mentions guiding them to a place where they can trust God, even if they are never able to trust their earthly ones.

This is an amazingly revealing look into Women and how they form and respond to relationships in their life based on the relationship they experienced with their human father. Every woman, no matter how good or bad the relationship with her earthly father,needs to read this book. It will open her eyes to her own relationships here on earth and more importantly, with her Heavenly Father. This book is a must read tool for Pastors, Teachers, Counselors, and anyone that ministers to women. This book will give them insight into women and why they react and relate as they do.
