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.
