When God Calls the Heart: Devotions from Hope Valley

When God Calls the Heart: Devotions from Hope Valley

Inspired by best-selling author Janette Oke and the Hallmark Channel original TV series When Calls the Heart, these forty devotions from Hope Valley are about finding moments of grace, joy, and beauty amid the unexpected circumstances of life.

In this collection, Brian Bird, executive producer and co-creator of When Calls the Heart, and Michelle Cox illuminate the God-moments from the fictional, 1910 mining town of Hope Valley. The stories of faith, hope, and love from each episode will inspire and encourage you with wonderful virtues and relatable life lessons.

Each chapter contains a quote from one of your favorite citizens, a Scripture verse, a devotional reflection, a prayer, and questions to help you think a little deeper about what's on your own heart.

As Elizabeth Thatcher learned when she headed West to fulfill her dream of becoming a teacher, when God calls the heart, you can expect an adventure!
