About My Heart, Christ’s Home: 100 Days of Joy and Strength in Jesus by Patricia Adderley
My Heart, Christ’s Home is a collection of 100 poems and the scriptures they were based on. God lives inside each one of us, if we’ve accepted Him as our Savior. However, salvation is only the beginning of a lifelong journey.
Throughout our lives, we will face trials of many kinds. We have to deal with loss and grief, fear, faith, or questions of identity just to name a few.
We ask ourselves things like “Does God really know me?”, “Who did God create me to be?” or “Is there more to life than this job?”.
We hide things about ourselves from other people and, especially, from God. We are afraid that if they found out who we really are we might be rejected. Whether warranted or not, we feel shame for our past actions, feelings, and thoughts.
I don’t know about you, but it’ a constant process to turn over those hidden parts of my heart and mind to God.
This collection of 100 poems are moments in time where I asked God many of the questions I listed here and more. As I take time to be with Him and listen to Him, He fills me with His peace. I find rest from my anxious thoughts. He shows me who He created me to be and He gives me strength.
No matter what the circumstances, He fills me with unspeakable joy. He can do the same for you as well. As you read this, I encourage you to take time to listen to God. My hope is that this book will be a resources that can help you draw closer to God. He has great plans for your live, even if at moments it doesn’t seem like it. He just wants to be with you. He wants you to turn to Him with all of your prayers, thoughts, hopes and dreams. He’s waiting.

Patricia Grace Adderley is a former missionary and actress. It was while serving as a missionary in a Christian repertory theater company called the Covenant Players that she first started to write. When writing poetry, it is often like the Psalms- a combination of prayers and worship. It's an outpouring of her heart in the moment.
Having struggled with identity and self-worth issues while growing up, Patricia has now become an advocate for helping other people understand that they have a true identity that is based on the Bible. One that is based on who God created them to be and what Jesus did on the cross for us 2,000 years ago.
