"Candid Conversations: Real Women. Real Life. Real Faith by Heather Hart collects insightful accounts from inspiring women. The book encourages women to be candid about their struggles so that they can come together and support each other. In the chapter Your Life is God's Story, Maretha Retief tells her story. Born with a disability in her left hand, she encountered ridicule from other children during her childhood. Performance became her way to overcome her challenges until she experienced Christ's love. In the chapter Judgements and Jesus, Heather Hart opens up about her difficulty in loving other Christians, especially those who lack humility and fail to love as Christ does. Other chapters explore topics such as confidence, patience, forgiveness, and much more.
In Candid Conversations, different struggles that many Christians face are highlighted and addressed through guidance from scriptures. The book points to the presence of the Holy Spirit that continually works within us. It also focuses on Christ who, despite our imperfections, continues to love us. The book is neatly organized and each chapter ends with questions that help in applying the insights in the book. Scriptures are quoted in every section and they offer a foundation for the messages. The accounts are offered with humility and candidness and they show that every Christian has issues they struggle with. Candid Conversations by Heather Hart is a collection of amazing stories that uplift through the openness of the narrators and their encouraging conclusions. This book is a great read for Christians and non-Christians seeking encouragement and growth." ~ Reviewed By Edith Wairimu for Readers' Favorite
From the Author
Every single one of us lives in the real world. We all knowfirst hand that life is full of challenges. Being a Christian woman doesn'tmake life any easier.
We go through the different seasons of life, and it can seemlike the challenges are unending. And worse yet, it can often feel like we face our strugglesalone.
But in John 16:33, Jesus tells us to take heart, because Hehas overcome the world. Yes, we will struggle, but we don't have to struggle alone. Not only is Jesus with us, we are also surrounded by otherChristian women who are struggling just like we are.
The Bible tells us to confess our sins to one another, tobear one another's burdens, to encourage one another, and build each other up.
With that in mind, I have partnered with several Christian women and we all want to invite you to join us in our new book, "CandidConversations" where we get candid and share some of our struggles.
Our hope is that through our stories, you will find that you aren't as alone as Satan wants you to believe, and that you would be reminded that no matter what you are going through, there is hope that can be found inJesus.

Candid Conversations by Heather Hart, and other contributing authors, is just like having one meaningful conversation after another. Over twenty different women have come together to share their stories – aka – struggles.
We tend to look around at others and see “perfection”. Anything messy is hidden from our sight. Social media, and the sharing of photos, has made it easier than any other time to put our best foot forward. But in so doing, we are not helping one another at all.
Our struggle to cover up our struggles is greater than our struggles.
In the introduction, Heather Hart, sets our thinking on the right path:
“Can I just say that if you are searching for a Christian woman that has it all together, you are either looking for someone who doesn’t exist or a liar. That is why we need Jesus. Jesus came to save us because He knew we could never make it on our own. He didn’t come to give us a leg up — a boost in the right direction — so we could take it from there. He came to save us from our sins.”
We should all be able to breathe a sigh of relief. Jesus came to save us from our sin, our struggles, and from ourselves. There is no point in pretension for there is no growth to be gained.
It is in transparency, our admission that we find life hard, we will find encouragement and support from others. The amazing aspect of this is we will also be able to extend the same encouragement and support to others.
Candid Conversations is a collection of stories, testimonies, of real life women with real life struggles. These real life women are not perfect but in the midst of imperfection, they are pursuing Jesus with all their heart and might. They are not content to stay stuck in the struggle, but long for transformation and to be all they were meant to be.
Each story is different as each woman is unique. I found the book wonderfully encouraging and hard to put down. At the end of each story, the author included Scriptures and questions for reflection which she titled, “Candid Conversation Starters”. This book would be excellent not only for personal journaling but also for heartfelt small group discussions.
The struggles shared include judgments, disabilities, people pleasing, forgiveness,confidence, waiting, postpartum depression, to name just a few. Each story is compelling, making this book most difficult to put down. In fact, I didn’t – I read all of it in one sitting on a quiet Saturday morning with several cups of coffee.
**I received a complimentary PDF of the book in exchange for my review. Candid Conversations is one beautiful and candid conversation after another. You will truly find stories of “real women, real life and real faith” in each one.
I have recently finished reading Candid Conversations which is an anthology by Heather Hart and contributing authors. This is a beautifully written book that shares the experiences, feelings, thoughts and deepest emotions of Christian women. Each excerpt is fairly, easy to read and has a series of questions for reflection after each candid conversation.
I quickly connected to each conversational testimony. I felt deeply touched about each heartfelt experience shared. The conversational excerpts were extremely and deeply emotional reading. The faith that each woman possessed despite their differences in their experiences were inspirational.
I think this is an exceptional book for all women to read. I found it comforting to read this book for a variety of reasons. It candidly reinforces that your feelings are real, that your faith is real and that you are not the only one who experiences obstacles, trials, and struggles. No matter what our experiences are that we have to endure, we are all unified in Christ’s love for us. That he will never leave us or forsake us. That what he did on the cross is enough….Having those Candid Conversations help us to remember that. It strengthens our faith. We all experience “real life,” we all strive to strengthen our faith, and we are “real Woman.”
Because the book has several writers, different sections flow in different ways. For the most part, it was written in a way that captured my attention and drew me in. There were situations expressed that I have found myself in and some that I could never even imagine. For the most part, the stories were shared in a way that I found myself being empathetic to the writer even if I had never experienced a similar situation. There were a couple parts where I didn’t quite understand what was being addressed. Additionally, a couple of the authors wrote in a way that did not flow for me. Overall, I enjoyed the book. I would recommend it to anyone who does not have a perfect life and to those who think they do. I plan to read it again.
