Product Description

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.

“Yes, this book is written for women. Yet, Pearce makes its content graspable for women everywhere. I love that is has been easy for me to share this book with some of my Christian friends active in other faiths. We could use more books like this.

I believe A Heart Like His is a book for women in all seasons of life — a must read that has the potential to transform lives. It did mine. Buy it, borrow it — somehow get your hands on it.” — Catherine K. Arvesth, Meridian Magazine

One of my favorites.
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

This book changes my life every time I read it. Virginia H. Pearce is so real. There were some times I was sure she was writing about me. I felt so connected to what she was saying. I try to make the small, simple adjustments in my heart that she recommends, and I see the good it does. It works because it focuses on our own hearts. When we strive to change our heart, which steers our actions and motivations, and seek God's love to share, we cannot go wrong. This is a book for everyone.

A superb book for opening our hearts to God's love.

This book is superb. In the context of a very tough year, it has helped me to continue in opening my heart to God's love, and then passing it on.

Most amazingly, life changing read

This book has touched my heart more than any book I have ever read. I just hope that it will be a lasting change. The concept is so simple but so profound. I already see myself questioning my actions and trying grow my heart and bring it forward!! I want to share it with everyone--did buy it for my three daughters.

A Perfect Gift!

The first time I read this book I loved it so much, I bought copies for all of my sisters! I have read it several times since then and gain new perspective with each new reading. I have used the concepts in Relief Society talks and lessons also. It has made me more aware of the condition of my heart toward everyone I meet. It is not a book that adds a bunch more things for us to do in our busy lives. It is just a lesson on keeping our hearts soft and open in our everyday interactions.

Motivating and simple

This is a book that I should read on a regular basis. It's amazing how doing the simple things suggested can really change your life and how you view and act toward people. I especially like that she challenges all readers to experiment themselves. It really does work!

Loved it!

Absolutley one of the best books I've ever read. How much more peaceful would this world be if we all tried in small and simple ways to have "A Heart Like His"!

A must-read book that will change you

This book is personal, humble, fun, with a message that is both easy and life-changing. If you really think about what this book says, and try to do it, your life will never be the same. IT REALLY WORKS! And it doesn't "cost" anything extra out of our busy lives. Try it!

Great life changing book!

I just loved this book. I finished reading it in one day, and since reading it for the first time I have read it 3 more times, and I received it just 9 days ago. Implimenting what this books shares with you will change your life, as well as the life of others around you. I cannot say enough good things about this book. I am reccomending it to everyone. You won't be sorry about reading this book. I am giving this book as Christmas presents this year, it will be the gift that gives for a lifetime.

easy read~endless life application
By , Submitted on 2015-02-25

I just finished A Heart Like His in under a day. I just couldn't put it down! And I'm ready to re-read it, not just because it's an easy read but because it's a simple easy-to-understand principle that when applied to life will result in endless blessings. Sister Pearce is so eloquent in her writing in that she gives just enough for the reader's heart and the Holy Ghost to fill in the rest. And because the experiment has such an easy life application, I'll definitely be sharing this book with my walking and playgroup friends (and I couldn't be more excited)!!!

A book well worth reading!

While visiting my daughter, I looked around for something to read and happened upon 'A Heart Like His' and decided to read a bit of it. There was no putting it down. It was such an amazing concept and yet so simple to apply to everyday life. I vowed when I got home that I would get the book for myself. But I also vowed that I would share my 'great find' with others and that I would give my wholehearted recommendation of this book here. So let me add my 'Amen' to what others have written and say 'I highly recommend this wonderful book'.

Simply Profound

This book was one of those life-changing reads. It was so full of simple profundity that I worked over for weeks. In summary The compassion, love, support and kindness that I extend to others in my everyday interactions allows me to feel the love of God more abundantly and links the receiver of my warm heart to God's love, also. I hope that the insights presented by Sister Pearce improve my interactions with others for the rest of my life.
