A modern day love story or epic battle of sorts, presented through the eyes of a wife and mother who eventually said yes to God, is a riveting, true story account about a family of three, brought together through an unchosen path of pain, and their miraculous journey towards the Light of God's Love. Pummeled by the damaging effects of infertility, mental illness, loneliness, despair, corporate greed, emptiness and societal rejection, the despondent mother eventually places her trust in God and subsequently finds the courage and determination to unify the family and support her defiant teen's restless heart. Caught up in this family's heartbreak and ultimate victory, readers experience first hand the redemptive mercy available to every man, woman and child made in God's likeness. Throughout this spiritual quest are many invaluable tools and demonstrations to warm the heart and guide the soul, including prayer, sacred devotionals, the sacraments, Scripture mediations, service to others, spiritual pilgrimages and seven concrete steps towards God's Loving Embrace. During each stage of this heart wrenching journey, readers observe the collision between physical and spiritual realities as they are forced to ponder the age old question, "Do they choose the Light of God's Love or the empty promises of darkness?" Presented in a unique novel format, this compelling story inspires, informs, takes readers on a visceral, full bodied faith discovery process, and provides answers for those individuals yearning for increased intimacy with God.

God's Love.​​ By: Karen Sheehy

What are readers saying? ​

  • "The Healing Eyes of Mercy. A Journey Towards the Light of God's Love, ​is a marvelous piece of work! Hopefully, many people reading it will have their eyes opened to "The Eyes of Mercy" in their own lives! God would be so pleased to usher them into His Bountiful Love!"

  • "One of the most inspirational book manuscripts I've ever been given the privilege to read. This book is going to touch the heart and souls of many, and I dare say, they will never be the same!"
  • "This spiritual journey will be of value to the many wives and mothers who read it. I think this story will appeal to a broad range of women since we can all relate to the struggles and sufferings that come with the redemption of not only our own souls, but those of our family's as well. Most importantly though, this courageous testimony will provide relief and guidance for those suffering families who are dealing with the issues not so freely spoken about, namely mental illness, infertility, its treatment and the raising of a special needs child."
  • ​"Such a powerful story! I found myself translating this family's words and experiences into my own life and spiritual development. I love the message about Jesus waiting patiently for us to find Him. This book gives me hope as I strive to move out of the "gray" and into the Light of God's Love!
  • "This book highlights the strength found in God as a way of getting through the difficult trials of life and the importance of sharing our faith and hope in God with our friends and community."
  • "A story of persistence, of never completely giving into the darkness, and through the grace of God, learning that faith is salvation, for although we seldom understand God's plan, faith gives us the courage to never doubt that He has one, and the joy of knowing that when we go home to Him, all the answers will be there for us!"
  • "A moving experience! A true witness to the value of self-sacrificial love and suffering for the sake of others. I now understand the need to be more faithful, and the importance of turning things over to God, especially in regards to my son's struggles and our family life as a whole."

​As a prodigal daughter, who once again embraces the Catholic faith, I have personally experienced the deep yearning and burning desire which eventually draws a soul back towards its Christian roots. Having lived through each event recorded in this riveting story, I now find myself uniquely and passionately positioned to spread the good news of God's mercy to others! In response to God's request, I have humbly offered my "yes" and written this story down. My gift to Him will consist of not only this written testimony of self-sacrificial love, pain, remorse, hope and eventual triumph, but also my steadfast commitment to get this inspirational message out to the many restless and devoted hearts longing for increased intimacy with God! During each stage of this heart wrenching journey, you will observe first hand the collision between physical and spiritual realities as you are forced to ponder the age old question, "Do you choose the Light of God's Love or the empty promises of darkness?" This question is yours to answer, for God desires a covenant of love, freely given and never forced. I suggest prudence, however, for your choice may have eternal consequences! I hope you enjoy my upcoming book!
