From Ave Maria Press:
"When Sr. Miriam James Heidland’s life as a successful college athlete proved unfulfilling, she went searching for something deeper and ended up falling in love with Jesus. By charting her own journey toward wholeness, Heidland invites young Catholics to pursue their own relationship with Jesus.
Although originally full of athletic ambition and goals for a career in sports news, Heidland was transformed in a very slow but deep way during her undergraduate years, moving from party girl to bride of Christ. In Loved as I Am: An Invitation to Conversion, Healing, and Freedom through Jesus, Heidland helps readers learn from her experience of seeking love in the wrong places and instead finding it in Christ. She shares her struggles—learning she was adopted, battling alcoholism, and healing from childhood sexual abuse—as signs of hope that anyone who desires to know Christ can find him and be loved intimately by him in return. By bringing readers into Heidland’s healing process, Loved as I Am provides a gentle and subtle template for finding peace and freedom in Jesus."
WHO DOES HE SAY YOU ARE? - $15
Note: Could you purchase Colleen Mitchell's book for less than $15 elsewhere? Yes, you could - yet buying from CWR today helps keep our ministry afloat. Books will be available at the time you check in for the retreat and will not be shipped beforehand. Thank you so very much for your support!
"In Who Does He Say You Are?, Catholic missonary and speaker Colleen Mitchell tells the stories of 13 women from the Gospels and how they answer the crucial question of identity in the book's title. With Mary as the ultimate example of intimate, transforming union, Mitchell weaves together moving anecdotes of her own search for identity as a Catholic woman along with accounts of women in Scripture that reveal the healing, grace, and purpose God has in store for all of us."
