Nancy Shaw Reed began writing poetry in 1995, however the majority of her work has been written within the last year. While her poems deal with a variety of subject matter, her main focus is giving comfort and encouragement to those dealing with chronic illness. She, herself, is battling Fibromyalgia and Multiple Sclerosis. In late 2002, she began making bookmarks with her poems on them for friends and family. That was the beginning of what has become an "angel network" of volunteers giving her bookmarks out free in hospitals, doctors offices and hospices. This network has spread into 5 states and now overseas. She is quick to give God all the credit and describes herself as simply "a listener." She hopes this book will comfort and encourage all who read it.

Nancy Reed opens up and lets us read what she hears. But also gives encouragement, references, examples, laughter, tears & insight into dealing with life. God is the foundation for all. Her trust in His Goodness & Love are unmistakable even when she shows her human side. In fact some of the verses were so close to my life and feelings at time I thought she knew me. We both believe in Jesus Christ, but she is really listening to him and I appreciate her honesty. My Christmas gifts this year are going to include Whispers From Heaven for my family. I hope they will be as Blessed as I have been after reading this wonderful book and am looking forward to more of her work in the future.May God Bless & Keep You & Yours this Christmas Season.
I really believe that this book has been divinely inspired to encourage, edify, and lift up the reader. I don't always like 'poetry' because some of it just doesn't make sense to me, but this book is like curling up in God's lap and being refreshed and spoken to directly by Nancy's poems and experiences. Truly a must for anyone who needs to feel closer to heaven.
I've been mentally ill for 40 years, in and out of the hospital and taking shock treatments when needed. Sometimes I was high, thinking I could do anything. Next, I would be in chemical depression with no hope for anything in my life. I had 5 different psychiatrists and a lot of medications. Because of this depression, I couldn't hold a job. Thankfully though, I was happily married, with two very great children. There have been times when I have wanted to give up and not fight this depression any longer. I'm writing all of this to tell you how much this Book 'Whispers from Heaven' has helped me. Now, instead of running to the extra pill they told me to take when I need it, I take this book 'Whispers from Heaven' and find a quiet place to read it. This book brings me tremendous comfort when I feel can¿t handle the situation or am depressed. It seems to calm my fears and I feel the goodness of Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are with me.
When I began reading this book, I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a tremendous source of inspiration and encouragement. This is a book that has truly transformed my relationship with the Lord. The prayers are beautiful and the poems are thought provoking and insightful. While some pages of this book will make you laugh, others will bring tears. It is truly a book that I will cherish and share with all my friends.
This book is incredible. A must read for anyone who has ever struggled with pain or illness, or has been discouraged in any way, in other words, a must read for EVERYONE. This book is so uplifting and encouraging. It's a shot of HOPE, LOVE and TRUTH.
