So many times when author Sylvia Hensel in prayer, she finds herself transported to another place. She feels herself being lifted up on arms of love to a realm of oneness with her Lord.

She feels as though she is the bride in the Song of Solomon. He comes to her in the midnight hours and calls her to Himself. Every nerve of her spiritual being is in tune with Him as He whispers words of love in her ear. He takes her in His arms, and they dance across the heavens while He sings over her. She is enraptured by His exquisite love for her.

In those moments they share their intimate thoughts with one another. It is when His presence is lifted that she finds she has written much of what was said, and she is awestruck at the beauty that had transpired during the time they shared.

These are her personal love letters to Jesus. For many years He would not allow her to share them, but He has let her know this is the time. It is His desire that you too experience this intimacy with Him. Jesus would have us claim Him as our spiritual husband and intends that our desire should be toward Him. 

God wants to lavish His love on us as the bridegroom for the bride and have it returned with the fullness of passion. He wants us to love Him to the point of abandonment, resulting in a consummated love. He wants our spiritual womb to be forever fertile, producing beautiful fruit of wondrous delight for the world to behold. 

“And Adam knew Eve his wife; and she conceived and bore Cain, and said, I have gotten a man from the Lord.” (Genesis 4:1)

Sylvia Hensel began her writing careen at the age of seventy-four by entering Faithwriters’ weekly writing challenge. She quickly advanced to win the coveted “Editor’s Choice” award, for which her story appeared in their monthly magazine.

 

She now writes for two online magazines and has written for Yesterday’s Memories. She has also had the privilege of speaking at retreats, luncheons, and conferences.

 

From the Heart of a Woman is her first published book. She is in the process of completing a children’s book, Animal Adventures in A B C Land.

 

Sylvia is the mother of two, the grandmother of three, and the great-grandmother of six. She and her husband moved from Ohio to Virginia Beach to be near family.

 

FROM THE HEART OF A WOMAN by Sylvia Hensel is difficult to describe and review. I don't say that in a negative way (seeing as how I'm giving it a 5) but rather in an admiring way. Many parts of this book I can relate to because of similar experiences that I've had. But this isn't about me...



This book is a collection of a woman's love letters to her Lord. Sylvia's courage to expose her spiritual intimacy is amazing, I don't think I would have that courage. But I'm sure that the things she wrote in this short, but incredibly full, little book has the potential to meet the needs of many people. It will at least serve to prod them in the right direction if they are searching for similar spiritual food, growth and intimacy in their relationship with the Lord. Sylvia's very descriptive thoughts, prayers and poems are meant to be read and digested in small portions which, thankfully, are arranged that way. They are rich with meaning and spiritual calories for the hungry soul...as can be seen in the following paragraph:







Pure joy fills my soul as we reach our destination. The mountaintop experience is exhilarating and awakens all my senses to the fullness of your love, a oneness with you, and something to be desired often. No matter how long we linger there, it is never long enough, for we must return to the valley where life is lived.





Some readers will find this book too overwhelming, others will find it too boring or too poetical...but only because they are not on the same level as the material that are reading. As a daughter of mine likes to say, "This is not for the faint of heart." On the other hand...perhaps it is. A faint and weak heart will stand the chance of being revived if they read and meditate on the things written in this book.
