Dear Reader,

Thank you for choosing me amongst the millions out there. I love to write, but even more, I love to write for you. You make my fictional characters come alive and provide for them a place to call home in your mind. You give them a voice when you introduce them to your friends, and I appreciate your thoughtfulness in sharing.

In Matters of the Heart, book 3 in my Discerning God’s Best series, you meet Katie and Hans. Hans struggles to see God in detail because of his skewed perception of a loving God. Katie is too busy moving forward with her plans to stop long enough to hear God’s voice. It surprises both characters how God pursues them.

I prayed long before I wrote this book for you. I prayed God would move in your heart, open your eyes, and increase your awareness of His goodness.

Writing is my ministry. It’s how I share Christ with those who may never pick up a Bible or step foot inside a church. I also write to encourage those in the Faith to live abundant lives—full of all God desires for us. Writing is also how I work through my heart’s questions and embrace God’s best for me.

I may be an author, but that doesn’t make me immune to hurts, disappointments, and struggles. Being an author allows me to express my heart to anyone willing to read the words I’ve penned. So, thank you for choosing to read one of my stories. I sincerely appreciate your friendship and willingness to take a chance on a new author.

Matters of the Heart is Heidi’s newest release and is a standalone book in her Discerning God’s Best series. To receive a FREE copy of the prequel, visit
