Love Letters from the Heart


Have you ever felt unloved? Friends, family, perhaps even strangers, have messages within their hearts they want to share with you, but never found the right time or the right place to speak them. Here, within these pages, you'll find messages of hope, forgiveness, direction, and even prayers - written from caring, loving hearts directly to you and for you. Know this - you are not forgotten or abandoned. You are not alone. You are loved - more than you can possibly imagine. Who could love any of us that much? Turn the pages - we hope you'll soon discover the answer.




Life Lessons from Grandparents: A Trip Down Memory Lane


Grandparents, whether intentionally or not, have great influence over the lives of their grandchildren. Those who take the calling seriously are perhaps one of God’s greatest blessings here on earth. The stories featured within these pages reveal many of the lessons our grandparents have taught us. May their legacy continue to live on, and may their Life Lessons touch you as much as they’ve touched each one of us.



Life Lessons from Moms
Mothers are the first to touch our hearts ... Memories of our moms evoke a myriad of emotions. Happy or heart-breaking, our moms taught us lessons that carry us through life in one form or another. With this book, we honor all the moms who've taught these unforgettable life lessons.




Life Lessons from Dads
Patience. Diligence. Hard work. Perseverance. Lessons our dads taught us, usually by example more than anything else. In today’s world, dads seem to be forgotten or their importance is minimized or overlooked. We hope Life Lessons from Dads will serve as a reminder of their value and impact in our lives, and in the lives of our children and grandchildren. May it also serve as a loving tribute to dads everywhere who give it all for their children. We appreciate you.


Life Lessons from Teachers
Back to School ... Back to Basics ... Teachers use more than textbooks and tests to teach their students, and the delightful stories shared within these pages show the truth of that statement. The influence teachers have can impact a student for a lifetime ~ through their words, by their actions, because of their examples. Come join us as we recognize and celebrate some very special educators. Look for other books in the Life Lessons series: Life Lessons from Moms, Life Lessons from Dads, Life Lessons from Grandparents.
