Never Lose Heart

Grounded in His love Connie Smith grew up in Nashville, Tennessee. She graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in Marketing and has spent most of her career in Nashville in the healthcare and publishing industries. After a particularly difficult, searching time in her life, she came to a life-changing illumination about God and His endless, faithful love. Through the process of learning to let go of her failures and her striving to gain God’s approval, this revelation unfolded in an undeniable way—through random hearts in nature. She began seeing them everywhere—in a rain puddle, in the cement sidewalk, in the bark of a towering tree trunk, in a strip of chipped road paint, or even in a piece of trash on the side of the road. The more hearts she encountered, the more significant they became in her life— a confirmation of God’s presence and His unconditional, relentless love. This deluge of love was so powerful and brought such life to the desolate places of her soul, that she knew it was not just for her. It was meant to be shared with the world.

Never Lose Heart: Hope for the Journey was born out of Connie’s journey and her discovery of God’s grace as she had never known it before. Featuring 52 heart images captured with her iPhone, unaltered and just as she found them, this inspirational gift book is intended to be read as a love letter from God, offering hope, encouragement, and comfort amid life’s challenges. Two years later, she wrote Grounded in His Love: Life Made Beautiful, the follow-up to Never Lose Heart. This November, she will be releasing her third book in the series, Lifted by You: A Heart Changed by Perfect Love, which is written back to God as a response to the first two books.
One of the greatest joys Connie has found from writing/publishing her books is to see how friends and readers have been inspired to see God’s love all around them. A community gallery showcasing these beautiful heart images (and powerful messages from God) can be found on her web site at
