  1. Thank you for sharing God’s hand in turning evil around for good. All life is given by the Father. You are a vessel being used to bring healing to many hurting women. Thank you, Thank you!

  2. What a powerful testimony of faith. Such a good reminder that God can take ANYTHING in our life and turn it beautiful.

I now see the power in God’s plan and I believe if He can use my story to help just one person then that is good enough for me. Thank you for sharing your story.

  3. What a powerful testimony of God’s goodness and power to heal in our lives. You have a wonderful husband too. I pray that God continues to bless you immensely. Thank you for sharing your story.

  8. Heather please continue to tell your story for the telling of it drives darkness away from those listening or reading who have their own battles to fight. Your book is the next one to buy on my list, one for me and one for a dear friend who has a similar story. Thank you posting of how our Lord can bring beauty from such a terrible thing.

  9. I absolutely adore you for being able to be so strong and share your story. I’m only 18 years old and I’ve been through a miscarriage and went through rape and sexually abuse for many years. I felt a great pull to read your book in which I full Heartedly feel god had everything to do with. Reading your book has helped me a find a new found hope to keep moving forward with my life and not let my past tear me down. Your an amazing strong women. I look up to you greatly !
