"God never asks us to do anything or go through anything that He will not empower us to do or give us the grace to endure." —The Heart That Heals: Healing Our Brokenness Through the Promises of God
“God uses people who cannot do it alone. He uses the weak, the broken, the people in need like you and me.” —The Heart That Heals: Healing Our Brokenness Through the Promises of God

The morning I woke up to the first book review of The Heart That Heals, waiting for me in my inbox, was the morning I knew we have something special here. It was like a little sweet potato in my garden, waiting to be unearthed. And can I just tell you friend, it was exactly what I had been praying for!
I wanted her to see Jesus. And she did. I want readers to find Him waiting for them on every page. And He is. I want the promises of His faithfulness and steadfast love to scream above the waves of the storm you are in. And! They! Do!
If you and I were Pen Pals, The Heart That Heals is the letter I would write to you if you’d lost a child, a husband, a best friend, or a sister. It’s the kind of letter I would seal with a heart-shaped sticker that says, God Loves You, you know, that kind of sticker you used to get in Sunday school. You’d read my letter and you’d know, yes, you would know, He truly does love me!
"Our choices have consequences. The pathway we walk has a destination. I want you to make good choices so that the consequences will be good. I want your destination to be one that glorifies God. If you’re in a broken place, it may be difficult to make good choices. Is your pathway littered with the debris of brokenness? I want to help you get past all that and learn to be still, and know that He is God." —from the Prologue
