Anna hasn't envisioned her life outside of the context of living with her large family, doing her share of hard work on their farm. But when a young pastor asks Anna to be his wife, she accepts, despite her shock at his proposal and her belief that she isn't cut out for the role in The Measure of a Heart by author Janette Oke.

I've lost track of how many times I've read this novel from the Women of the West series over the years. Four times? Five? It was quite a read for me back in my young adult days, as I shared Anna's love for books, and I empathized with her feelings of guilt and inadequacy. Even now, while its way of teaching/sermonizing at times isn't my style, this simple ChristFic tale is uplifting comfort reading for me.

Sure, it has its flaws. Too many dashes that sometimes give the dialogue a jerky feel; too many tears where less could have been more for the story's emotional impact; and though I understand how Anna feels, her criticism of herself becomes redundant and her reasoning for it doesn't always make sense.

What I wasn't aware of in my younger days is just how much Anna's thoughts of identity revolve around how she doesn't think she measures up where her good husband, his ministry, and his needs are concerned, let alone what Anna may think about herself as a person in her own right.

Still, Anna's shrewdness and shine are still there, even when she doesn't know it, and needing to find a true sense of self-worth is something so many people can relate to. I quite enjoyed revisiting this story. ( )

A well told story of a young girl, with a thirst for knowledge and a heart to help others. She will grow into a beautiful lady, will marry a young pastor, and although she does a wonderful job as a pastor's wife, she always feels inadequate. Will she ever be able to see herself as God does and as others around her do??

I enjoyed the way this couple met, fell in love and worked together building a church up in a small community. It was heartwarming. ( )

I could identify with the main character feeling inadequate to perform the duties of her "job" even though we have different jobs. I think that's one of the reasons I kept this book for so long after reading it before years ago. ( )
