Heart Connections 1Heart Connections: Finding Joy through Openness with God is a devotional book that’s designed to help people come before God in their “everyday clothes ” and express their heart in creative ways.

Designed for those who long for more than an intellectual relationship with God, it provides  opportunities to interact with him through 48 devotional meditations.

Each devotional contains words of Scripture, poetry, art, my own journal meditations and space for readers to respond by writing in their own thoughts and prayers. It is designed for those who are new to journaling, as well as those who have been journaling for years.  


The following poem, found on p. 28, is part of the devotional “Identifying My Heart Language.”

My clever heart does not tell 
what it’s up to, in direct and 
open ways. It draws a picture, 
creates a dream, or writes a poem.

After awhile, when it feels safe,
it may give me some interpretation;
but even then, I can’t be sure
it’s spoken straightly.

How can I discern the content
of my heart? I need the help of
someone who is wiser and more
creative than I am!

I need someone who loves me
but is not dependent on me
for approval. God decodes for
me the mysteries of my heart.
