Are you paralyzed by fear? Struggling with doubt? Filled with insecurity? Do you want to live with confidence and be strong and free? Renee Swope's "A Confident Heart Devotional" offers a daily walk through some of our most common self-doubts into God's transforming truths.
It's easy to doubt ourselves when we see the "perfect" lives of others on Facebook and Twitter. After all, if you see it on Facebook, it's true, right? Not. When everyone else seems to be living perfect lives and we aren't, we doubt who God is and what He can do. Swope's devotional brings us back to the truth God shows us in His Word.
I was moved by Swope's openness and wisdom. I loved her "when I say...God says..." statements. They give focus for when we want to concentrate on our feelings rather than what God actually says in His Word. Swope is very encouraging and writes honestly from her heart. Swope previously wrote "A Confident Heart"; however, the devotional can easily stand alone.

Are you guilty of negative thoughts towards yourself? I call this "stinkin' thinkin'" and I am guilty for sure! As I have gotten older and grown in my walk with the Lord, I have learned how VITAL it is to apply Gods Word when I am thinking negatively towards myself! This devotional is phenomenal in teaching you just that… at the end of each devotion, there is a "When I say this…. God says … " and let me tell you… These are AWESOME!!
The devotions are great as well! Renee has an amazing way to write and make you feel like you were having coffee right there with her. She is open, honest, and spoke right to my heart in these devotions.
This would be a WONDERFUL gift for ANY and ALL women you know! Teachers, Caretakers, Friends and Neighbors, Co-workers, Bank tellers… You get my drift ;) Seriously, this is a GREAT book and I recommend it HIGHLY!!
Thank you Lanette @Revell, a division of Baker Publishing for allowing me this complimentary book in exchange for my honest review!
A Confident Heart Devotional gets a HUGE 5 ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥'s from me!

A Confident Heart Devotional: 60 Days to Stop Doubting Yourself by Renee Swope, ©2013
My Review:
As I read the first day and see "When I say--God says," I am immediately reminded of Romans 12:2. ~Who am I following after? ~What I may hear others say? ~What I see others do that I would like to emulate? ~Who forms my opinion of me that I walk away with? Ready to join 60 days to stop doubting yourself? Romans 12:2, The Message: Don't become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You'll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity, God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.
Because we are not cookie-cutters, God's Word applies to us specifically for His path for us ~ to walk alongside and follow Him. The opposite of "specific" is "vague." Beginning, the first step to seek God in the areas of my weakness and His strength as I read these daily devotions. When I say, "My life is too busy. I don't have time to spend with God." God says, "Come with Me to a quiet place and get some rest for your heart, mind, and soul." ~*Powerful Promises*~ Then, because so many people were coming and going that they did not even have a chance to eat, he said to them, "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." (Mark 6:31)
Back Cover:
Confident, strong, and free--it's closer than you think
We all have doubts, fears, and insecurities, even if we've convinced ourselves that other women don't share those struggles. If you're tired of feeling like you're not good enough, smart enough, or gifted enough, Renee Swope has a message for you: you already have something special to offer the world!
Expanding on her popular "When I say--God says" statements, Renee offers you a daily thought-map to help exchange your most common self-doubts for God's transforming truths. Her authentic style and soul-stirring devotions include personal stories, powerful biblical teaching, and real-life application wrapped around one of God's promises each day to help you
· live confidently in your God-given roles, relationships, and responsibilities
· break free from people-pleasing and performance-based living
· trust the certainty of God's truth over your circumstances and emotions
Take a step toward the life of faith God designed for you and let this sixty-day journey to a confident heart be your guide.

Renee Swope in her new book, “A Confident Heart Devotional” published by Revell gives us a devotional for 60 Days to Stop Doubting Yourself.
From the Back Cover: Confident, strong, and free–it’s closer than you think

Let’s face it we all have our doubts ranging in size from little to incredibly huge. The Dictionary defines “doubt” as: “to be uncertain about; consider questionable or unlikely; hesitate to believe”. Once we doubt then we are either slow to action or we don’t do anything at all; we become immobilized. We need help to deal with our doubts, overcome them and move on in our lives and be pro-active rather than reactive as well. Renee Swope has provided a devotional to help us.
“A Confident Heart Devotional” gives us 60 devotionals to re-focus our attention on God and away from those things that cause our doubts so that we can be renewed and refreshed. Within these pages are the means we need to renew our mind and be transformed from doubters to faith-filled believers. Each daily devotional has a prayer at the end as well as a special section” When I say… God says… It won’t take you long to read this whole book through. This is one book you will be returning to over and over again. It is also a great gift to give to friends and family to help them with their doubts. I recommend this book highly.

Built on the hope-infusing truths found in the 2012 Retailer's Choice Winner, A Confident Heart, Renee Swope's new 60-day devotional takes women on a journey toward lasting confidence. Swope has expanded her popular "When I say--God says" statements and Scriptures, and offers women a daily thought-map to help them exchange their most common and crippling self-doubts with God's transforming truths.
Like having a conversation with a friend and mentor, Renee's authentic style and soul-stirring devotions include personal stories, powerful biblical teaching, and real-life application wrapped around one of God's promises each day to help readers:
•live confidently in their God-given roles, relationships and responsibilities
•break free from people-pleasing and performance-based living
•believe God's promises and apply his truth in their daily lives
•trust the certainty of God's truth over their circumstances and emotions
A CONFIDENT HEART DEVOTIONAL is a new devotional for women. It starts out with a Bible verse, then a short story with some more biblical truths, followed by a prayer and an application. The devotions aren’t one of those three minutes and a short half-page. These are more five minutes, and about two and a half pages. Not exactly a deep study in God’s word, but a great moment with God to help women build confidence in who and what they are. We all struggle with self-worth, and worry about failing or falling short. This book will help us to live confidently in our God-given roles.
If you are looking for a devotional or a gift for a woman in your life then A CONFIDENT HEART DEVOTIONAL will be a good one to consider.
