Loved As I Am by Miriam James Heidland, SOLT
When Sr. Miriam James Heidland’s life as a successful college athlete proved unfulfilling, she went searching for something deeper and ended up falling in love with Jesus. By charting her own journey toward wholeness, Heidland invites young Catholics to pursue their own relationship with Jesus. Heidland chronicles her story from “college athlete party girl” to “bride of Christ”. She shares the struggles of child sexual abuse and alcoholism – as signs that Christ is the true healer and lover of every person’s heart. Heartwarming and gentle, Loved As I Am provides a template for finding peace and freedom in Jesus.
