Guest Post by April Minger why she wrote her book Altars of the Heart.

What Inspired Me To Write My Book?

After doing the study on the altars in the bible and seeing the connection between them and the spiritual heart of man I was compelled to take my own journey of self-evaluation and self-discovery, and after allowing myself to go through the process I knew I had to share. I wanted to share what I had learned and what I was able to achieve in my own walk with the Lord.  I knew in that moment that I had to communicate what I had discovered and was now able to understand more clearly; if I wanted to experience a deeper relationship with God my heart was the key. 
I was inspired to write this book, because I felt a deep obligation to encourage people to commit to taking their own journey of self-evaluation. It was my sincere hope that after reading ‘Altars of the Heart’, readers would have an honest heart conversation within themselves that would lead them on their path to deeper worship. I wanted to admonish the reader to discover their own truth about the condition of their heart. And then begin the process of purging what keeps them captive so that they can emerge victorious, and cultivate what allows them to draw closer to God in order for them to experience the greater life waiting for them in God.
I wrote this book because I felt that I needed to have a way to communicate what I had discovered along my journey, which would not be subject to my own limitations in space and time. I needed to find a way for what I had learned to exceed me and somehow reach further than I could reach. I believed that what I had discovered was much more important than myself, and to keep it bound to only my abilities would mean I had mishandle what God had given to me. I wrote ‘Altars of the Heart’ because I felt it was one of the reasons I am here; it’s a part of my purpose.

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then I have some good news for you. The answer may seem far away, but it's actually much closer than you think.

The knowledge and insight that you will gain from reading this book will take you to a life of newfound liberation from insecurities, fear, doubt, shame, and un-forgiveness.
You will be encouraged to do an internal "heart" examination, to re-evaluate how you interact with others, make choices and worship the Lord.
