This is a wonderful devotion book. I am a devotion book addict and this one is quite good. Of course, I haven't read the entire book, because it lasts a year, but the devotions I have read so far are wonderful.

I have not finished reading The Heart-Shaped Life, but I have enjoyed it very much so far. This is beautiful, hardback, and full of high-quality gloss pages. Every page is a devotion specific to each day of the year. I have found this book to be a beautiful love centered reflection of God and His will for our lives. While I have never before ready anything by Karen Moore, I am now very interested in getting my hands on one of her other books. This would make a good gift for yourself or a loved o ...more

The author has written a book about love and how God fits into our lives and our hearts. Each devotional begins with a scripture, has a devotional thought, and ends with a short prayer. The colors of both the cover and the interior are beautiful and eye-catching. There is a ribbon bookmark as well. The days are numbered, but include a February 29 so the book can be used any year. The back of the book includes a scripture index for all of the texts used in the devotional. I read through the devot ...more

The Heart Shaped Life Daily Devotional is a sweet devotional. It gives you Scriptures and then it gives you an allegory for that Scripture verse. This is a little different though - the analogy is not just this boring off the cuff everyday analogy but these analogies:

1. apply to the Scripture given.
and
2. Is heartfelt and very thought out like the author truly wants you to know GOD's heart in the little time you have.
Usually devotionals are short but sweet and to the point and generic and simila

This is a beautiful hardcover devotional book that has a "heart-shaped" or love focus for every day of the year. Each day has a focus verse, a story, and an ending prayer about living out a life of love for others. The devotionals are lovely to read and are helpful for you to get your thoughts on showing love to others throughout the day. This book is more than just about romantic love, but also about showing Godly-love in the Christian faith. When we live a life of love then we have the potenti ...more

When I first saw this devotional, I thought it was for women. It has that look. However, after looking through it and reading several of the daily devotionals in it, I can say it is for men and women both.

This IS a 365 day devotional, plus it has one for Leap Year, February 29. Each day has a title, followed by a Scripture verse, then the actual devotional, and ending with a short prayer. An aside: I like the looks of each page, a lot of red and blue.

Each devotional is centered around love in

A wonderful way to start of each day! Each page is inspirational and encouraging. It really helps you to prepare to meet the world and what challenges may come. It is also a reminder to refresh your spirit by giving of yourself to others. I love the format as it begins with a scripture, continues with reflection and then closes with prayer. Following with the same format each day really helped the devotions to become a habit and something to look forward to. I love that the book is hard cover an

There is a devotion for ever day of the year including February 29th which I loved. So many devotionals leave that day out unless published in a leap year. The format of each devotion is title, verse, devotion then prayer. These are a great way to start your day or pick up at anytime really. You have the verse and reflection to think on throughout the day helping you to stay close to God. Another thing that I liked was the variety of translations, most devotionals stick to one bible translation ...more

The Heart-Shaped Life Daily Devotional is a beautiful way to start each day with an uplifting thought on living a love-filled life. I hope many will want to read this book since we need more love in this world now. With many trying to survive in this fast paced life, it is refreshing to read something that brings a smile within.
This would be a great gift as well as a love-filled message to inspire since that is what happened to me by reading.

This is a wonderful daily devotional that is compact in size and has an eye catching, colorful cover. The title is perfect, The Heart - Shaped Life. Each devotional is encouraging and speaks of opening your heart and mind to love, giving and receiving, but mostly giving.
There are 365 devotions, one for every day of the year. Each page has a title, relevant scripture, three to four paragraph devotion and ends with a prayer that follows the message of the day. I love that these are not referenced

What a wonderful devotional!

I truly love this devotional. It has become a great addition to my daily Bible reading. Each day's devotion is only one page, so I am not overwhelmed with a lot of reading. There is a verse, a devotion and an ending prayer....perfect. I highly recommend this devotional.

I love The Heart-Shaped Life Daily Devotional. It is an attractive book that captures your attention immediately. It is hard back and has an attached ribbon that helps you keep your place. Each day you are challenged by Moore to live a more heartfelt life. You open each day with a scripture verse then a devotion that relates to that verse. Then you end each page with a prayer. I have found it be inspiring and I feel like anyone who reads it will be blessed. Great gift too!

I love! love! love! devotionals. Especially when they are as easy to read and concise as these are.

The one-page, dated daily devotions (yay for alliteration) begin with a Scripture verse, continue with a few paragraphs of nourishment, and close with a thoughtful prayer. The conversational tone delivers wonderful affirmations of love and prompts us to live life fully.

The Heart-Shaped Life, by Karen Moore, is simply an energizing, inspiring and refreshing way to start your day. We all need encoura

What a great devotional that reminds us daily to keep our hearts right and pliable before God. When we harden our hearts and shut God out He is still there waiting. This is a wonderful way to start your day or even to end your day and only takes a few moments of your time. It has a title, scripture, a few paragraphs of reflection, and a short prayer. Also is an attached ribbon bookmark and it is so pretty on my end table. Let love of God, others, and yourself be a part of your daily life.

I have to say that the hardback devotional is very beautiful and of a high quality. The pages are even a high quality thicker glossy paper. The devotional includes a ribbon page marker. So just a first glance you will be impressed with this book. In fact, it would be an ideal gift for a gift for friend, secret sister, bible study pal, pastor's wife etc. Additionally, this is a devotional for an entire year. There is a reading for all 366 days (yes it includes a reading for leap day). And each de ...more

Karen Moore's The Heart Shaped Life is a daily devotional that will provide much more than a few moments of encouragement with its daily readings. Reading this book feels like you're talking with a friend rather than reading a message from an unknown author. Her daily notes will uplift your spirits, touch your heart where you need it most, even provide just the words you need to hear. just when you need to hear it. I would recommend this book to anyone as part of their daily devotions and know i ...more

The Heart-Shaped Life daily devotional by Karen Moore is a beautiful, inspiring book. Each day, dated for the entire year, begins with a scripture verse or two, continues with a one-page homily and ends with a short prayer of application. The devotionals are easily applicable to one's daily life and are focused on subjects of the heart and spirit. "Create in me the desire to be a more loving person in faithful service to You." "You are a part of God's way for making the world a better place." "I ...more

Such a great book for today’s busy woman! Each day’s devotion is only one page in length yet offers a lot to meditate on throughout the day. Offering scripture selections and pray for each day, Author Karen Moore helps the reader to focus on God’s love for Himself, others, and self. Read this book and you’ll be encouraged to see the world through the heart of love. I found this to be a very good daily devotional.

In a welcome note at the beginning of this book author Karen Moore suggests that "a little inspiration each day helps to change your perspective and lighten your heart to make life's journey easier." She then offers The Message translation of Proverbs 4:23. "Keep vigilant watch over your heart, that's where life starts."

In this new devotional Moore has written 365 entries that relate to our hearts and our attitudes and in each daily entry she shares scripture, her own observation and a prayer.

My Thoughts:
Like Bibles, I can never get enough of Daily Devotionals. When this one came up to review, I was super happy. I couldn't wait to get my hands on it. The cover is super eye catching and the devotionals within are just what I need to read. 

Each day, there is a theme, a bible verse to accompany the theme, a devotional to read and then concludes with a prayer to say. I love that. I feel like my walk with God will improve with this devotional. The devotionals are wonderful and seem t
