The pages of this very special book are filled with all kinds of hugs that are written to strengthen the heart of the hurting. Whether it's a warm, encouraging story by John William Smith, an inspirational quote by a well-known person, a powerful, personalized Scripture by LeAnn Weiss, or one of the many inspirational messages by an "anonymous disciple," you'll find that these hugs reach deeply into the heart and say just what's needed.
