A must read for anyone struggling to find joy in the midst of their pain. It’s beautifully written and gives practical, thought provoking activations at the end of each section. The questions helped the writings penetrate deeper into my heart as I had to sit and think of how the topic related to me specifically. We all, at some point, struggle with seasons of pain and I just love how this book helps to get focused back on what’s important and examine the heart to regain true joy. I think it would be great as a group study as well. I was really blessed by it.

Knowledge is everything. When we take the scriptures and capture their truths, we then can walk in freedom.

This devotional is perfect for new believers and those who have begun to effectively sow deeper roots in the Word. Even if they feel alone in their circumstance, these devotionals reveal, through God’s Word that the Lord will NEVER leave them or forsake them!

Lenore Hernandez

This devotional spoke directly to my heart! In several writings, I was dealing with the exact struggles in my life that the author wrote about. Her insight helped me focus back on Jesus and His love for me. In the devotion titled, “It’s a Process”, Jessica wrote, “We don’t have to “try really hard” to think new thoughts and change our attitudes in our own ability.” She continues to direct the reader to the Holy Spirit, who loves us and is waiting for us to allow Him to transform our minds.

Discovering Hidden Treasure: In Plain Sight, expresses a deeper perspective than the average collection of devotionals. Jessica Hurtado not only has a thought-provoking, Biblical topic to address, but she takes us on a walk through the Word to give us a broader view of the Truth she has pulled from the Bible. It is clear that she not only has a great understanding of the topical Scripture, but has taken the time to search the Word for a deeper Revelation. This book gives the reader MORE in a short time! Jessica also challenges me to follow her example to dig deeper into Scripture for myself! You will love these bite-sized, power-packed devotionals!

Jessica’s book is so practical! If you struggle with reading and understanding the word, like I do, then this is for you. Jessica not only gives you biblical references as she’s sharing what the Lord is showing her, but also gives recommended scriptures for further insight. It gives me a reason to go and open my Bible! I appreciate her break down of scripture in each reading because it makes it so easy to understand. I recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to dive deeper into God’s word. This book will take you on a personal journey to get to know the Lord more intimately.

With scriptural backing this book is an invitation for Christians everywhere to take their walk with God to the next level in every area of their lives.

This is SO beautiful. I think that you put a fresh word on each scripture, topic chosen by the Holy Spirt. The layout is easy. The prayers at the end are pointed for that particular topic you are discussing. It is easy to understand for those that have been studying for a while and for the ones just starting to study or read the bible. It reaches many diverse groups.
