Through the Valley Love Endures Book Tour: Exclusive Excerpt!

Susan Heim on Writing is pleased to be a stop on the book tour for the book, Through the Valley Love Endures, by Eddie David Santiago.

About this book:
What if death came for you today? Would you be ready? Forced to face his own mortality, Eddie Santiago fought to stay alive in a broken world. His incredible journey through heartbreak, abuse, and adversity left him with one truth: every life makes a difference. This is the true and compelling story of his supernatural quest through the valley of death, doubt, and darkness. Eddie provides a passionate story that will capture the attention of even the toughest skeptics. Angels, demons, heaven, hell, Jesus and the devil: Are they fiction, or are they more real than anything else in the world?

Enjoy this excerpt:

“Hold out your hands,” I told her. “Hold your hands out so I can take them and suffer with you. That is the love of God I can offer you. I know you want more, so if God speaks, then I will reveal to you a God who knows you and loves you.”

With hesitation, Reba held out her hands.

“God, we pray for healing over your daughter’s heart. Reba asks for you to speak her back to life, but it is only through your son Jesus that she may be loved back to life. We are at your mercy,” I said as flashes of her life came to me. Again, things like this didn’t happen all the time, but when they did, I felt compelled to share. “You’re that little girl who would look at the picture of the person she lost when she was very young and ask God to send you a sign. If He had just showed you a butterfly when you had asked, then you would have hope of seeing who you lost. Today is the day you have been given your butterfly by a God who loves you, suffers with you and knows you by name. You don’t need to hide in the darkness any longer.”

With tears rolling down Reba’s face she said, “Why are you different than the other Christians? They say they follow God, but they make fun of me, shut me out. I continue to lose friends. You tell me of a God who loves me and about a butterfly I dreamed of ever since I was a little girl. Why?”

With tears in my eyes I replied, “Because He first loved me before I ever loved Him. I know a lot of people have hurt you, but the God I serve tells me His Kingdom is for all people, especially for people like you and me. He heals the broken.”

Quickly removing her hands from mine, Reba said, “I don’t know what just happened, but I trust you. I don’t know if I can ever follow God, but I’m open to the challenge because of you.”
