Meditations of a Woman's Heart was written from journal entries made during the darkest time of my life. The first part of each prayer is a plea to the Father, expressing the "emotion of the day." Sometimes, the emotion is fear or pain, sometimes it is love or joy. The second section of each meditation is the Father's response to that plea. Sometimes, He draws the reader up on His lap and holds them tight. Other times, He gently rebukes or corrects the attitude. At all times, He is the loving, caring Father each one of us needs. This book is written to give hope to those traveling on the path of healing. Hope is a deep need of all who struggle. If we have hope, we can make it through any trial.
