    This is a God inspired book Not preachy but very faithfully written I loved every page of it Slattery took a topic like going on a Mission trip and orphans and made it shine I held on to every word of this book.This book leaves you with something to take away and keep you thinking I have read all of Slattery s books and I take away something from everyone of them.I can t find the words to tell you how much I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next one If you have not read one of Jennifer s books this is the one to start with, you will not be sorry.This is a 5 star read and one that I recommend Run don t walk and pick up your copy.The Mary Reader received this book from the author for review A favorable review was not required and all views expressed are our own.

    Another awesome read from Jennifer This one was different from her other books that I ve read, in my opinion An excellent book for sure but this one felt different as I read Maybe because it touched a different part of my heart, than her previous books did This book definitely broke my heart, but in a good way The story really made me want to hop on a plane straight for El Salvador to save all of the orphan children I just can t stand to see or read about children being mistreated or not cared for about It made me long to hold those sweet girls in my arms This book definitely touched my mothers heart Jennifer always has such a way with words that puts you right in the middle of the story as if you are there I enjoyed all the characters in the book I think Fatima and Dinora were my most favorites I think I will always enjoy Jennifer s books no matter what tough subject she chooses to tackle next I received this book from the author for free A positive review was not required All opinions are my own.

    Where do I begin with this review No words justify the amount of feels I felt with this book It is absolutely an amazing read From heartache and pain to smiles and hope, Ms Slattery stitches together a novel that will not soon leave the reader s soul You close the book and reflect on the story and the characters and their faith long into the night It s forever in my heart, that s for sure I have never been on a mission trip but I know of people that have They come home with stories that will leave you in tears, sometimes from happiness, sometimes from sadness Ms Slattery filled this book with such detail that you can t help but feel as if you, the reader,were right there in the center of the mission trip Watching Brooke along side of Ubaldo really kept me hooked on the story I loved both of their characters so much I felt their emotions and their faith as if they were my own When they came to terms with what God had in store for the two of them, together, I really felt it deep in my soul Ms Slattery has taken on a wonderful theme for this book Finding love in an unexpected place with an unexpected person, learning of that our plan isn t always His plans, and seeking redemption along the way, really makes for a fantabulous book I can not simply give this incredibly moving novel a measly 5 star rating It is beyond that It is deserving of 5 thousand stars, if you want my opinion This book, and all it has to offer, will suck you in, cacoon you into it s pages and leave you breathless and in awe of Ms Slattery s work Bravo, Jennifer Slattery Bravo This review was originally posted on Cafinated Reads

    She spent over 100,000 and two years in grad school for this Makes one wonder about the novel that they just opened with this one opening sentence I often wonder if a lot of people think along the same lines as Brooke Endress, the main character in Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery It s hard to discern what God s plan is for our lives and for Brooke, after losing her parents in a car accident, her and her younger sister Aubrey now live with her Aunt and Uncle, so she knows what it s like to lose everything you hoped for your future After numerous rejection letters from various television stations looking for anchor positions, Brooke believes working as an intern for the last two years is beginning to make her wonder about her future Just as she is about to embark on a possible promotion working alongside a colleague for the television station in a new debut program, her Aunt and Uncle ask if she would accompany Aubrey on a missions trip to El Salvador for two weeks as a chaperone since she is took young to do so on her own Remembering her promise to do just that, she gets permission from the station to take this trip, counting down the days until she can put her career on a possible fast track towards something worthwhile and promising The last thing she expected to do was fall in love Ubaldo Chavez, has spent his entire life, finding ways to serve God He graduated and obtained his teaching credentials which most in El Salvado never achieve He now uses those skills to teach the children when they can attend at school in hopes of giving them that same chance at something better During his down time, he still spends time bringing food and medicine to his family and ailing mother even though his father wants nothing to do with the fact that he believes Ubaldo is too good to be a simple farmer He also works for a small orphanage raising young girls to keep them safe from living on the streets and becoming victims of prostitution He just never imagined in all his wildest dreams he would fall in love with a woman who is only going to be in his country for 2 weeks I received Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery compliments of author This entire story is based on the author s own unique experience serving on a missions trip to a third world county and getting an impact on how very different things are in our own country It completely changes her life, like Brooke in the novel Brooke discovers a young orphan child, Fatima, who is too afraid to ask for help when she and her younger sister Dinora, leave home to avoid being victims at the hands of their Uncle She finds meaning and purpose to her life and wonders if God might be calling her into a different future than she d ever dream is possible This is a beautiful story of unconditional love, forgiveness and redemption and helps readers understand the plight of young girls in El Salvador This one easily garners a 4.5 out of 5 stars in this reader s opinion.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book The author takes the reader right into the midst of a country where there is so much need and want and captures all of the despair and hopelessness that the people feel It is also a beautiful story of the difference people can make when they are willing to reach out and offer God s love and hope It is a story with wonderful characters and following the relationship develop between Ubaldo and Brooke, people from completely different backgrounds, made for a heartwarming read This is one of those stories that stays with you after you have read the final page I was given a copy of this book but a favorable review was not required The opinions expressed are my own, and this is another one from this author that I definitely recommend.

    What is keeping you from the abundant life He offers Surrender Loosen your grip Brooke Endress is struggling her life long dream of becoming a network news anchor seems just out of reach, in spite of all her hard work Reluctantly, she agrees to use her vacation time in order to chaperone a church mission trip to El Salvador, so that her aunt and uncle will allow her younger sister to participate, never imagining that two weeks in an impoverished country could claim her heart.Ubaldo Chavez immediately notices the American beauty among the group for whom he has agreed to translate She seems quite out of place, until she mingles with the orphaned children, and uses her skill with words to share simple truths from the Bible When they observe a young girl and her sister lurking along the street, in obvious need of food and water, Ubaldo and Brooke find that teamwork comes naturally to them if only Brooke s life wasn t so deeply embedded in her career back in the United States, things might be different Simply told, this story is filled with reminders that we may not be able to change the world, but we are called to share the abundant life with one person at a time, no matter how old, or on what continent they reside I received a copy of this book from the author The opinions stated are entirely my own.

    Healing Love by Jennifer Slattery is the most beautiful and heartfelt contemporary Christian novel At its heart are children children who need love, care and to know that Jesus loves them.The novel is written around a mission trip to El Salvador Here there is much poverty and neglect Orphaned children are abandoned Even children with parents are neglected, unloved and seen as useless commodities Words spoken over them in anger remain lodged in their hearts useless, worthless, unloved These children need to know God s heart for them They need to experience love and compassion We cannot save the world nor the children of our school, but we can impact the life of one God needs people to be His eyes and ears, His hands and feet, to show those who are unloved their value in His eyes, that they are precious to Him As if God Himself loved these children through her God gives us dreams Our dreams may change We need to be open to follow God s calling on our lives How The novel explains the need for prayer and then if it is God s plan, peace will follow.There is a wide gap between the rich and the poor Material wealth may mean spiritual poverty There is nothing wrong with having stuff, unless that is where we place our hearts God wants us to have a heart for people To speak up for those without a voice In the novel a character is asked to step out of her comfort zone, and to love these precious children The novel has the theme of trust Past experiences mean some find trusting people hard but God can be trusted full stop Sometimes when life is hard, we believe God is absent, or worse, uncaring Either God wasn t real or He didn t care In our anger and our need, we wonder if You re really there, why don t You help us God sees God cares God weeps God sends people to walk alongside us Speaking hope and truth into children s lives There are awakenings within the novel Awakenings to God Awakenings to our role in His world.America and El Salvador are very different The reader is reminded that God does not concern Himself with our stuff, God looks at our hearts God wants our hearts surrendered to Him and us pursuing kingdom works.The novel is about families actual families, our wider family, and the family of God, the church The church when it functions as Jesus intended, is a beautiful thing needs are met, hearts are open to others, unconditional love is given Unfortunately not all families are good Sometimes children suffer at the hands of those who are supposed to protect them Children then become suspicious of all adults, and even project their suspicions on to God They need to know in Christ there is always hope Then they will realise maybe God doesn t hate me after all Healing Love is a beautiful novel It will break your heart It will restore your soul It will give you hope hope that the world can be a better place The characters were realistically drawn and you will fall in love with the children To echo Jennifer Slattery s closing words if you are affected by the plight of orphans, you can help via Compassion by sponsoring a child or two Just 25 a month makes a huge difference to a child in poverty Together we can change the world one child at a time.A beautiful novel Thank you Jennifer Slattery for highlighting a need and for writing such a wonderful story.I received this book for free A favourable review was not required and all views expressed are my own.

    This is a hard book for me to review because there were some aspects that I loved very much but also some parts that were just a little far fetched I have served on many short term mission trips Some were one and a half weeks but one was six weeks and the last two were 12 weeks All were in Latin America And I am fluent in Spanish I have seen the conditions described in this book So keep that in mind as you read my review.First, what I loved I loved the view of short term missions trips in this book It was actually a realistic view of them than I usually find because it actually mentioned the fact that sometimes a short term mission trip can do harm than good The rich, all powerful, white men and women swoop into a developing nation and drop off tons of gifts and spend a lot of money on airfare and make a lot of promises that are never fulfilled Thankfully this book actually shows a group of people and a church that plan repeated trips to the same orphanage to foster actual relationships And they also continued to help from the US.I also loved that this book portrayed BOTH sides of the missions trip I appreciated the view points of so many people Especially Ubaldo, Fatima, and the reluctant to go Brooke I liked the honest portrayal of the life of young Fatima How desperate she was for food and water How she was treated by family How scared she lived life everyday And I liked that Slatterly made it hard to read her story with the daily fear of being raped I liked how honest Ubaldo was throughout the story His view of the North Americans is very common and I liked that it was revealed And I appreciated that Brooke went on the trip even though she didn t want to because it opened her eyes to a whole new world And I loved how Brooke used her own personal life to really show empathy to the orphans.Things that I didn t love about this book were minor in most people s eyes probably but really stood out to me For me the biggest problem I had with this book was the love story Honestly if the love story had been left out of this book or only been a minor crush I might have given it five stars Unfortunately though I had to watch a rather unrealistic love story unfold I know it is fiction but the reality of the difficulty of a cross cultural relationship is very hard And even so when they don t both speak the same native language There was to this situation that didn t seem realistic but I don t want to share spoilers.Overall this was a good book and I m glad I read it.I was provided a copy of this book by the author This is my honest review.

    Healing Love is the story of Brooke Endress and Ubaldo Chavez.Brooke and Ubaldo meet on the mission field in El Salvador Ubaldo is a native of El Salvador where he works as a teacher and translator Brooke is an All American girl with a passion for broadcast journalism When the reader first meets Brooke, she is focused on rising in the ranks at work She wants to advance her career by becoming on air talent at a TV station Love is not part of Brooke s life plan until she meets Ubaldo.Ubaldo s world is rocked when he meets Brooke He notices her beautiful exterior first but as the story progresses it s her soft heart of gold and her passion for helping children that win him over.Brooke did not want to go to El Salvador She wanted to focus on her career but her younger sister convinced her to accompany her on a mission trip to El Salvador that s sponsored by her church Brooke is reluctant to go but eventually agrees When Brooke arrives in El Salvador and starts working with the young orphans, they win her heart She finds it hard to go back home after the mission trip is over not only because of the children, but because of her love connection with a certain someone Ubaldo.This is a sweet, strong and wonderful story about what can happen when you allow God to write your love story and exchange your career plans for His life plan I love the way that the author Jennifer Slattery brought Brooke and Ubaldo together It was unexpected, filled with surprises and so beautiful.The plot of this story is solid, believable and worth noting The author writes in a way that s engaging, heartwarming and real The author s heart for the mission field shines through in the way that she writes this story She s created characters that are likable, relatable and completely captivating She paints a picture of the orphan children that draws the reader in and makes them want to advocate for their welfare even though this is fiction.This story is a bit over 300 pages but is so wonderful that you may stay awake, paying full attention to this story until you reach the end Healing Love is well deserving of a five star rating

    What a powerful and emotional story You could see the love of God coming out of this author s heart as she writes this story of missions and missionarys in wanting to help these children in third world countries It makes us think twice when we rumble and mumble about what we are lacking or wanting here in the states Aren t we so blessed Jennifer gives an insite in El Salvador the poverty and starvation because there aren t enough jobs to go around Of all the ppl it s the children who suffer the most.It s the children who brought tears to my eyes I wanted to reach through the book and adopt every one of them and slide them to my house.But of course, I couldn t do that.I m glad there are missionaries in real life that can help ppl like that.Reading this story has made me realize what blessings I have in life that these ppl don t There s a song that says count your many blessings one by one I ll never take it for granted again I loved watching God transform Brooke and ubaldo into two caring ppl. I ve especially loved watching Brooke We can t control who leaves us and who stays Only God can He is in control Fatima is a heroine I love her because she s always looked out for her sister before herself Not many siblings would do that I don t think do that.This book was a different read for me I very much enjoyed this story I also very strongly recommend this book Thank u Jennifer for such a touching story
