Does your heart hunger after God? Are you willing to sacrifice everything and follow Him? Sadly, many Christians today are playing it safe, while God is calling them to do greater works. The Bible is filled with stories of imperfect men and women who devoted their lives to God and were used by Him in remarkable ways.
In A Heart After God, Erin Wolff encourages you to return to the basics: Love the Lord with your whole heart. Seek God first, and allow Him to lead you out of your comfort zone into a life of greater faith.
Make the decision to live above the status quo, and be extraordinary! A Heart After God will inspire you to live a life without compromise, completely dedicated to the service of your loving heavenly Father.

In May of 2010, a month and a half after having my fifth baby, the Lord gave me what I thought was a sermon. I wrote out what I believed the Lord told me to say and prayed, asking Him who I should give the sermon to. Within a few days the Lord put it on my heart that it was not a sermon but the first chapter and outline of a book. I felt very humbled and blessed that the Lord would ever give me the privilege to be entrusted with such a service.
Everything the Lord has told me to do in writing this book has brought me further from my comfort zone and has pushed me into a greater relationship and faith in Him. I am a very organized person. A year ago, if I thought the Lord wanted me to write a book I would have sat down with a pencil and pad of paper and started writing down an outline for every chapter, detailing everything. With this book, the Lord told me a name of someone in the Bible, and I looked up the name and read about that person, praying the Lord would give me some sort of revelation. When I got a revelation, the Lord then told me what to write. The whole time I was writing the chapter, I thought, “This can’t be right. I must not be hearing correctly, because it doesn’t seem to make much sense,” but God brought it all together at the end, and I am amazed. I never knew what I was going to write about until the Lord revealed it to me.
This has been a lot of fun for me, watching God work in my life. I am just an ordinary, stay-at-home mom, and I love the Lord with my whole heart and want desperately to know Him more. I want to glorify Him in all of my ways. I try very hard to be a good wife to my husband, submitting to him according to the Word of God, and I strive to be a good mother, teaching my children in the way that they should go, yet trying to hold on to a balanced life at the same time.
It amazes me that God can talk to me while I am changing a poopy diaper, while my children are fighting, the supper is burning, and I’ve had five bad hours of sleep. What an amazing, tangible God we serve. God is able to be touched and is able to touch us in a very profound way. I desperately want not only the world but the church to know God in an awesome way. I want people to love Him with their whole hearts, having a great desire to persevere through all that this life throws at them, all the while having a firm grasp on God Almighty. I want God’s people to be a people without compromise, who trust in the Lord with their whole hearts, trusting Him with everything. I want them to know His furious love, yet love Him back for His absolute greatness. I want people to want to give themselves completely to Him, holding nothing back. I want them to fear God, respecting Him for who He is, yet knowing Him intimately. The limitlessness of God! I hope and pray that while we look at the lives of some of the greatest men and women of God, we will want to strive for that greatness and along the way fall madly in love with the King of kings and the Lord of lords.
I pray that your life will be a life that is truly lived. And to truly live your life, you have to trust God and jump into the river. May the adventure be nothing you expected it to be and yet immeasurably better than you ever could have dreamed.
Lots of love, Erin Wolff
