A Heart Like His by Virginia Pearce

From goodreads: The ability to feel God's love doesn't just make life nicer or more comfortable-it changes everything. When filled with God's love, we can do and see and understand things that we cannot do and see and understand on our own. As our own hearts are softened by these blessings, our overriding desire becomes to help others experience this joy also. But how do we do that in the normal course of our everyday lives? Presented in the form of an experiment undertaken by eight friends, this step-by-step guide helps us discover the one change we can make within ourselves that will automatically increase our ability to feel the love of God and to extend that love to others.

It was so refreshing to pick up a book of non-fiction and be able to read it without being bogged down by description or text. This book reads like a conversation with a good friend.

I loved how Virginia Pearce suggests positive but simple changes that will yield great results in your life. All we have to do is pay attention to the condition of our hearts-is it open or closed? I liked learning how to open up my heart to others and to God. It made me think in ways I hadn't before. I loved the concept that as we feel more of God's love for us, we will have more of a desire to show unconditional love to others. Desiring and striving for a more open heart is life-changing.

I'm definitely adding this to my "Need To Read Once a Year" list of books!
