Paperback published July 2019
In twelve years much has changed and with the advances of technology there are far more opportunities to reveal that Christianity isn’t a religion, but a living, loving relationship with a heavenly Father who desires to be part of our daily lives.
The Hearts Desire series is still a pioneer in using fiction to reveal these truths and are available on Kindle and in paperback. Our hope was books would sell in profitable numbers making it possible to publish or advertise self-published books which also reveal the love of God and His ability to speak into our lives. This has had success in part, but not as fully, or in the way we envisaged. However, Emanuel (God with us) has continued to open up ways serve Him. We are using what He has given us in supporting others to step into their calling to touch heaven and change earth.
