The Heart's Haven project has been such a blessing, in so many ways. Now that the concept has become a reality, I can't imagine not "knowing" the three wonderful ladies who so willingly jumped aboard with me and worked so hard to make it happen. The decision as to which four authors would create Heart's Haven was, in my very definite opinion, a GOD-thing.
I am grateful, and so honored by the opportunity to work with such talented, giving, God-focused writers.
Are the four of us friends? Well, we are now...even though some of us have never met. But more importantly, I feel that Heart's Haven has brought three precious, dearly loved sisters into my life. For that reason alone, I would love this series. But Heart's Haven is even more than that...it's an anointed, heart-touching, soul-stirring experience. At least, it has been and continues to be so for us. We pray it will be for readers, as well. That is always the goal.
From all of us to you - THANK YOU for coming along on this amazing journey with us!
