Sometimes as we work enthusiastically in the vineyard, we can get stuck in our own expectations and ‘noise.’ Kathy Collard Miller’s new book Pure-Hearted: The Blessings of Living Out God’s Glory is a beautiful, faith-filled source of insight, stories, and Scripture helping us unclutter our inner motivations and feelings so that we can focus on blessings, which put us in a better position with God’s divine purpose. In each gracefully written chapter, she leads us deeper into a place of greater purity. And through each discussion question and real-life example, she helps us put aside expectations that stem from our oh-so-human inclinations to focus with more clarity on God’s glory and grace.—Maureen Pratt, Author of Peace in the Storm: Meditations on Chronic Pain & Illness.
Full of wonderful wisdom, practical application, and spiritual insights. A must-read for both the new Christian and the seasoned believer. I highly recommend this book for individual or group study.—Linda Wood Rondeau, author of the futuristic thriller, The Fifteenth Article.
Kathy Collard Miller writes in a comfortable manner as if she sat with her reader over a cup of coffee at the kitchen table. The quiet profoundness of her thoughts is well-written, Biblically based principles we can each embrace. —Julie B Cosgrove, Award-winning Christian author, speaker, and devotional writer.
In Kathy Collard Miller’s book, Pure-Hearted: The Blessings of Living Out God’s Glory, she challenges readers to inventory the heart with the goal of more closely reflecting God’s nature in our daily life. She does this while assuring us of his unwavering love and commitment to us. It’s a fascinating—and successful—combination. When we are certain of our place in his kingdom, we are free to be transparent with ourselves and others. Self-examination is often painful and discouraging, as the realities of our walk with Christ fall pitifully short of his example. Kathy makes this a joyful journey as she weaves the Father’s love with the call of Christlikeness. Tired of playing a role? Pure-Hearted will help you move into the authenticity that is Jesus. —Deb DeArmond, writer and speaker, Related by Chance, Family by Choice, I Choose You Today: 31 Choices to Make Love Last, and Don’t Go to Bed Angry.
