    Uplifting and inspiring

    I was amazed and inspired by this first-time author's ability to put her thoughts and feelings into words that brought you to that same place, where you could actually feel what she was feeling. The book is a testament to a daughter's love, to fulfill her father's dream and in doing so, changed her own life. I highly recommend this book and look forward to more books by this very talented author.

    Inspiring

    A Healing Heart takes the reader to a special time and place that only the truly blessed can capture in words. After the heart-breaking loss of her beloved father, the author shares her inexplicable struggle with a spiritual calling to go in a pilgramage to Mejugorie. Despite medical challenges and frustrating feelings of anxiety, she embarks on a life changing journey that not only renews her faith, but empowers her to renew the faith of others. The manner in which Alberta Sequeira shares her ineermost thoughts and feelings with the reader is inspiring and thought-provoking. I enjoyed this book immensely.

    Fabulous

    In a time where obscenities are acceptable and the mention of God is, to some, offensive, I had the pleasure of reading a magnificent book about faith and spirituality. A Healing Heart by Alberta Sequeira was a pleasure to read. The book enthralled me and I finished it in a matter of days. Her story, the tragedy of losing her father and the effects it had on her family were very real. I felt very much a part of the story and enjoyed the trip to Medjugorje tremendously. The author did a magnificent job of pulling the reader in and I am very much looking forward to her next book. The perfect gift. (I would suggest a box of tissues as well)

    Strength in Faith

    I found myself unable to put this book down. Through all the author's experiences from dealing with her father's sickness and ultimate passing to her pilgrammage to Medjugorje, I felt as if I were right there with her. Her writing style puts the reader right where she is so you actually feel her pain with her father's passing yet at the same time you can feel her faith renew itself and blossom. Medjugorje was a wonderful experience for me, although I have only been there through reading this book. The humbleness of the people of Bosnia and the way they open their hearts to strangers made me feel humble as well. What links these residents with the pilgrams is a mutual faith in God who is willing to show us Miracles so that we may Believe and Trust. After reading her book, maybe we can just slow down for a moment and contemplate what is really important to us in our own world....the people in our lives whom we love and care about and a God who will never abandon us. Thank you Alberta for helping me strengthen my own Faith.~

    Miracles Happen

    In 1986, Alberta Sequeira asked her father if he believed in miracles. His answer was an unequivocal yes. Four years later, Alberta had to put all of her faith in miracles as her beloved father lay dying of cancer. Although Alberta's prayers were not answered in the way she wished, the long hours spent with her father before his death, seeing his unshakeable faith in God, began to reawaken her own sadly neglected faith in God. Then, in 1993, as she was preparing to enter the hospital for her own surgery, trying to put up a brave front for her family while inwardly frightened to death, she experienced her own miracle as the voice of God came to her the night before surgery and told her, 'Do not be afraid. I'll be with you.' An enormous sensation of peace came over her and she didn't even need to take the tranquilizers the doctor prescribed for her. After a surprise encounter in Medway, Massachusetts, Alberta makes the decision to visit Medjugorje, in Bosnia, where six people claimed to be receiving visits from the Blessed Mother Mary. Once she made up her mind to go, nothing could stop her, not her health, her fear of flying or the refusal of her husband to accompany her. All she knew was that she had to go. And so the preparations began. Buoyed with the well-wishes of her friends and family, loaded with prayer requests she is determined to honor, Alberta sets out on the longest journey of her life. The visit to Medjugorje is filled with joy and miracles as Alberta comes to realize that true joy and happiness come from within, when people turn their lives over to God rather than focusing on material possessions. She returns home, spiritually recharged, ready to undertake her mission for God, fighting Satan as he continues to tempt the weak in an effort to win their souls. I was reading this book by flashlight as I sat for the fifth day in a row in a house that had lost all power from a winter storm. Wrapped in two quilts, a heavy winter coat and insulated boots, I read this passage from the book: '...we will all suffer, whether it is mentally or physically. It's our punishment for our sins: like Adam and Eve. Jesus waits for us to offer up our suffering and trust in Him.' So I closed my eyes and prayed that our family would get through this...my mother, who is 75, my younger brother who has a heart condition and finally for myself because I hate cold weather. At the exact moment I finished my prayer, the lights came on. Most people will scoff and say it was just a coincidence. They'll never convince me...I know what happened. 'A Healing Heart: A Spiritual Renewal' will annoy most unbelievers. For the faithful, it will be a reaffirmation.

    A Healing Heart: A Spiritual Renewal

    I have to say that A Healing Heart was one of the best books that I have ever read! For me, it wasn't simply an interesting book to read. It turned out to be a complete experience that literally made me cry three times before I got to the 8th chapter. I am truly impressed. The author did a wonderful job portraying her experience, emotions, spirituality and, not only a strong message, but a very appropriate message, especially in the final chapter. I received the book less than 5 days ago and from the moment I opened it up, I couldn't put it down again. It delivered such a powerful message. I'm thankful that the author shared her story and gave me, not only an insight to her father, but a greater insight to God. I will recommend it to everyone I know, and I honestly believe that anyone who has lost a loved one should read it regardless of their faith.

    A Healing Heart: A Spiritual Renewal

    'I was very impressed with Alberta Sequeira's latest work, A Healing Heart. The writing is honest and familiar, while the story is easily relatable and quite real. As a once-converted Catholic who is now repulsed by the church¿s recent scandals, I appreciated the message of awareness and found her faith refreshing. From the depths of a daughter's love to the nail-biting journey to Europe, it is a tale of love, courage and unyielding faith. I am sure her father would be very proud!'

    Great Job!

    Alberta put in to words what many of us feel when we go through a family crisis. It was very real and heart felt. I think many of us are surprised at how we all act and feel during these crisis's and are afraid to express that, Alberta was not. She told of the good and the bad, it made you feel like you lived it with her. I am sure most of us could relate to her book. Also during her trip when she spoke of the different places she visited you felt like you were there. For me it was a book that I could not put down. A must have for christmas.
