Book Review: From the Heart of a Woman by Sylvia Hensel

From the Heart of a Woman: Love Letters to My Lord, is a collection of the prayers that God has put on Sylvia Hensel's heart over the years. For years, she has felt such intense love for, and from Jesus when she prays. For a long time, she felt the Lord was telling her to keep these prayers, these love letters, to herself, private between her and her God. Now, He has led her to share them with all of us, by collecting them into this lovely book.

This book is a beautiful collection of inspirational poems/prayers. Not surprisingly, some of these prayers spoke to me more than others, because we all have unique experiences and personalities, we will all be drawn to different aspects of God's amazingness.  I think the author found a unique way of sharing her intense, personal love for God, through this book, and it is likely to speak to each of us differently depending on where we currently are in our own relationship with God, and our life experiences.

If you enjoy poetry, songs, and psalms, you will probably find this book inspiring and uplifting. If you're looking for some nuts and bolts, basic prayers, you'll probably want to look somewhere else. But I think this book delivers what it promises, and speaks eloquently to it's target audience.
