A Helping Hand
Heart Healed by Alexa Verde is a delightful contemporary Christian romance that will warm your heart and leave you smiling. It is the tenth book in The Potter’s House series but can be read as a stand-alone.
The book’s focus is hurts and healing. Life deals us blows that shape and form us. Sometimes the hurts go so deep that we withdraw from everyone, even God. “Once upon a time he’d been close to God.” God is the ultimate healer. He longs for us to return to Him, trusting Him to heal our hurts. “Events proved God still cared about him.”

Victims need our love and support to help them heal.Continue reading
