Believe in your heart

I rated this book 5 star because it was an amazing Christian read.

The story brought me to look into my life as I realize that I have also pulled away from God and his faith. This book is about two families who have both lost a spouse and each had three children. Heather lost her husband four years ago and Matt lost his wife two years ago.

Matt had asked Heather if she knew about any daycare and just so happens that she runs a daycare. So he brought his kids to her daycare. T

good contemporary read. Just reading a collection of Mildred's books. Matt n Heather's story.
A surprised death can be a test that knocks you for six. But when you are a mother n have kids to look out for... that can be trying. Besides handling the grief yourself the kids are handling grief also... you do need help. Matt had asked for help when his wife died n counselling helped his kids. Heather lost not only her husband n father of her kids, but her home n security. What was God telling her. He
