God is desperately in love with us! Gwen’s recording of God’s love song for her challenges readers to question whether humanity has ever been separate from the Divine.Many people have an intellectual ‘knowing’ of God through reading sacred texts, but Gwen has shared her experiential ‘knowing’ of God through prayer. Intimacy with God can be felt within the context of deep pain. Gwen has tapped into the cosmic truth that God weeps with us when we are feeling alone, alienated and without meaning.Because humans are much more than just intellect, the presence of the Divine can be felt in other ways that go beyond printed words. Reading Glimpses of God’s Heart, leaves the reader with a felt sense of God’s deep participation in our humanity.
Truly, this grand devotional book is a matter of the heart. Gwen has opened to us all her most private times in that Secret Place with the Lord. As I read the writings in this book, tears filled my eyes at times, as I saw the love that our Lord has for us and how this God, the Creator of the universe, is open to communicate with us in such an intimate way. These devotional readings will inspire you to develop an intimacy with the Lord. They will encourage you to journal your times with the Lord, found in that Secret Place.My hope is that, after you have read this book daily, you will say of the Lord, “I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eyes see You.” (Job 42:5)

Validating Spirituality.In a few pages, Gwen has summarized a whole life of prayer connecting her to our maker. This is indeed the fruit of a lifelong relationship with a higher being, and as she points out, it goes beyond the intellect and reaches our heart. The book reflects an amazing dedication to sustaining a deep felt emotion through good times and bad times with a superior being. In a sense, Gwen illustrates the importance and value of spirituality for human beings.

Wonderful book, found peace in the pages.What a lovely inspirational book. I’ve been going through a particularly tough time recently and found solace in these pages.
Intimate supportive journey you take with Love/God.A book a person of Christian faith will particularly find appealing as it has many references at the end of each chapter relevant to the sharings. I loved the insights and heart felt support offered in “God’s Heart” via deeply supportive and reflective offerings. It gives great hope for possibility and change. I love the way it is written i.e. very short chapters yet powerful and intimate. I felt I was in a personal mystical discourse with love/god or whatever your preferred reference is. Beautifully written.
Expresses God’s love.It has already been a blessing and it shows us how much our Heavenly Father cherishes us.
A great daily read.Gwen Wellington’s message is a year-long daily interaction filled with consistent and concise expressions of love, acceptance, and engagement with a loving God. Would serve as a fine material for private prayer times.
Realising God’s Love.I have often felt so undeserving of God’s unconditional love. The daily readings help me to realise the more fully, the depth of Gods unfathomable love for me. The book is worth every penny. I will share it with others and know that this love will shine through me.It’s a wonderful devotional book. I gave this one as a birthday gift to my sister.
This is a beautifully written devotional book.This is a beautifully written devotional book. You can feel and sense God’s love and encouragement.

Opening My Heart to God.Each day that I open Gwen’s book, I open my heart to God. This book is truly a treasure and an invitation.
When you read the book Glimpses of God’s Heart, ...When you read the book Glimpses of God’s Heart, you will see the transparency of author Gwen Wellington’s experience with God. You’ll be challenged to consider your own relationship with Him and invited to respond to his presence!
Hugs from God.We have all been through hard times, times where life has seemed so hard and things happen that we don’t understand. This book is for those times, it shows God’s heart. I call it ‘Hugs from God.’ The gentle writing style makes you feel that God is speaking directly to you and it is always relevant! The scriptures attached to each day gives an opportunity to look deeper into what God’s heart is for you.
A Gift that Inspires.Gwen Wellington beautifully captures God’s message of love, and puts it into everyday language and context. To be called God’s ‘treasure,’ ‘love,’ and ‘friend’ is a gift that inspires a positive caring response. It leaves one feeling affirmed and happy, assured of God’s unconditional love.Thank you, Gwen, for sharing so simply and intimately these glimpses of what God desires for each of us. This book has the promise to foster positive change one reader at a time. I will return to it again and again.
The fiercely loving embrace of God.’An invitation to intimacy,’ a ‘love-filled dance,’ ‘casting cares onto the ocean of God’s love,’ are some of the phrases that come to mind when reading these poetic daily meditations. Gwen’s writings capture the on-going life-dance of the spiritual person: that of straying into the desert of angst, separation, fear, and hopelessness, and then being drawn close again into the fiercely loving embrace of God. On every page she/we are challenged to enter into that embrace and to trust one’s life and future into Her/His care.In reading these pages I wonder, ‘Do we ever let go of the idea that we can do life alone, that somehow we will have the fool-proof plan and the right resources to come out relatively unscathed and able to hold up our heads without too much shame?’ We don’t. We are all self-deluded. And yet in the book there is never a hint of impatience in the words from Her/Him. It’s never ‘come to me you silly, dull baby,’ but ‘come to me, my treasure my love, and relax knowing that I have everything in hand.’ Following that is the challenge to go out and live in the confidence of that LOVE. In that light, the writing for May 2nd is particularly unique and beautiful. You get a ‘glimpse’ of God’s playful and fun-loving character in the words:Embrace this time of change and change itself.Know that I surround you and I go before you.I fill you and energize you.It’s you and me together,Sashaying boldly into the future.You’ll see!What joy!Pure, and unadulterated joy!You and me together.Yes. I like it!!So many devotional books are filled with tedious ‘shoulds’ and ‘have-tos.’ This delightful book steers a clear path away from shame-inducing admonitions and draws you into an enduring and beautiful place. I believe that this book will endure and someday will be a Christian classic.
Profoundly tender-hearted devotional book.The title invites us to enter a relationship with God that is profoundly parental: Glimpses of God’s Heart: Divinely Inspired Daily Devotions. Author Gwen Wellington invites us, in tender-hearted devotionals, to open ourselves to God’s infinite parental compassion. When we thus open ourselves, we find the freedom to express the gifts with which we’ve been blessed, serve others accordingly, and experience delight in such kingdom of God living. I’ve been profoundly blessed by these devotionals, strengthened daily as I deal with a serious illness, and reminded regularly that God’s love isn’t earned. Rather, it’s lavishly given. When we accept such love, we experience the inspiration we need to live as followers of Christ and members of God’s ever-growing community of faith, hope, and, the greatest of these, love.
The perfect daily devotional!This devotional is a wonderful daily reminder of God’s unconditional love for us. It reflects God’s heart and confirms his acceptance of our human side and his patience with us. It is uplifting and gives insight, in a very understandable way, of God’s written word. It provides a great way to start each day with a grateful heart.
A Great Daily Devotional that gets to the heart of God’s love for his children (us).Each day the devotional really spoke to my heart about His love for me. It will definitely be read from year to year. Thank you, Gwen, for pouring into this book.

Learn How God Loves YouGwen Wellington has given us a wonderful gift: her new book of daily devotionals called Glimpses of God’s Heart. This is an aptly named book because each day’s devotional really is like a glimpse of the emotional center of a warm and loving God. In a nutshell, these love-infused devotionals focus on some aspect of the love that God, Creator of the Universe, has for me, a mere human who sins and falls short of righteousness frequently.From the first day I felt my pulse quicken, my worries fade, and loneliness vanish as I read the beautiful words God had given Gwen for that day. The devotionals are short, taking only a couple of minutes to read, but they are long in impact, often recurring in my mind and heart many times throughout the day. As I read, I feel as though God is holding me and whispering these words into my heart as a mother might hold her 3-year-old who is crying from a skinned knee, whispering, “Everything will be fine. You’ll see.”Gwen shows us glimpses of Someone who is not a God of history, not a God of rules and regulations, not an ego-driven megalomaniac who lives to control, not even a Creator. Gwen shows us a God who lives to love me (and you), who freely forgives, who loves us not because of who we are but because of who He is, who would rather cuddle with me and whisper how much He loves me than to do anything else. Gwen shows us God not through our minds, not even through our souls, but through our hearts.These gentle, loving messages are well-referenced to connect with the scriptures and provide even greater depth to those who choose to use this book as a springboard for deeper study. Topics such as love, faith, forgiveness, blessing, and patience are addressed in the gentlest and most affirming ways imaginable. This book is poetry in action. Glimpses of God’s Heart is a beautiful book, a product of Gwen’s unique and wonderful connection with the God of Love.If you are on my Christmas list, do not buy this book! You’ll be getting one this December from me. I can’t think of a better way to tell special people in my life that I love them. My gift to each of you is the suggestion that you make 2019 the year in which you seek to know God’s Heart through the glimpses Gwen so beautifully provides here.Start your day with this quick devotional thought to remind yourself how close God is and how much He loves you. End your day with this quick devotional so that you go peacefully and fully connected into sleep. Here’s an idea: Start and end your day with these beautiful devotionals to keep God’s presence strong and vibrant in your life all day every day.
