A Heart to Live in
Troubled Times was written out of the author's
experiences in her life. The Holy Spirit gave her a
special way to express the challenges she walked
through. This book will encourage many to walk by faith
in God's Word in troubled times.

for over forty years
We have witnessed
the challenges and the breakthroughs in Gloria's and
her children's lives. This book journals her testimony
and the God-inspired exhortation that has built her
strength and resolve to stay the course no matter what
the situation looked like. We have seen her use her
gift over the years to empower many with a heart to
stand, endure, fight, and live in troubled times.
-Ron and Louise Johnson, pastor and church
I just want to say
that this book "A Heart to Live in Trouble Times" has
been such a blessing and inspiration to me. While
reading the book at different points and times I can
literally sense the power of God in a tangible way.
Truly, the burden removing yoke destroying power of God
is present to save, to heal, to deliver and to set you
free from anything that binds you, if you want to be
free. I enjoyed all the chapters, but my favorite
chapter was entitled "BEAUTY" because it really shows
how people often times will judge you based upon your
outward appearance rather than trying to see the inward
beauty. In addition to that, I just Love, Love Love,
the beautiful poems at the end of each chapter, because
it just put the icing on the cake perfectly. In my
opinion, this book "A Heart to Live in Trouble Times"
should be in every book store, because we can all see
ourselves in one way or the other in this book and it
helps us to look deep into our hearts and ask the Good
Lord to forgive us and help us to do better in our walk
with Him and our walk toward others. God bless you Mrs.
Gloria Carter and my prayer for you is that the Lord
will continue to put the right people in your path to
influence His purpose and plan for your life, and that
everything you set your hands to do will continue to
prosper and have good success. (Jeremiah 29:11, Joshua
1:8 & Psalms 1:1-3) EXCELLENT BOOK, BUY IT NOW!
Power and strength when one chooses to walk with God.
"This book was awe
inspiring. It shows how far an individual can fall and
yet God will come to the rescue when you call on Him.
Only He kept her from certain destruction. I absolutely
loved this book. It brought me to tears and then to
laughter. Ms. Carter's writing is definitely guided by
the Holy Spirit. I look forward to her next writing.

"Wow, what an amazing testimonial of the love and
forgiveness of God. "A Heart to Live in Troubled Times"
has taught me so much about myself...how to love
unconditionally, to forgive myself, my children and
others; to never be held captive by my past or future,
and that there is nothing in life that I cannot
overcome through Jesus. The combined true life
experiences of the writer and poems of encouragement at
the end of each story, is truly original and uplifting.
You will be blessed, as I am!!! I purchased several
copies for friends and family...the feedback is
incredible. Thank God for this book!"
-Janis, Medical Staff
"A great mix of poetry and narrative expressing the
healing and freedom that can be found in God, even
through life's toughest challenges. The author is real
and easy to relate to in sharing experiences from her
own life. There's a story in here for everyone and an
overall message of hope."
Emotional.....It Tugs at the Heart.
"When I asked Jesus
to come into my life I was 8 years old. I always
questioned whether or not God heard me when I prayed or
if He even cared. Now at 39 years old, and after
reading this book I know beyond a doubt that God not
only hears you, but knows you and what you need. In
this amazing book you will discover and experience God
as not only your Heavenly Father, but your friend. Have
you ever wondered if He knows about your
heartbreak?....if He understands your struggles?...your
addictions?....if you can really go to him just as you
are?....spotted, flawed, mean, selfish?,....Yes you
can....and this book will take you on a journey into
the life of a woman whose faith was challenged and
tested with every step she took. Just read how the Lord
walked and talked with her through every test and
trial. Experience how our Father, friend, and comforter
gave her the strength to push through. Read the words
spoken to her by the Holy Spirit....BUT PLEASE don't
just read this book, experience it and let the Holy
Spirit do the same for you."
Most Inspirational, Touching,
and Heartfelt Book I've Ever Read!
"A Heart to Live in
Troubled Times is the most inspirational book I've ever
read. I have read many books and only a few have ever
held my attention so much that I could not put it
down--this is one of them! I highly recommend it to
everyone. It will definitely be a blessing to whomever
"I was brought to
tears as I was inspired by the stories of someone
sharing love and hope through Jesus. I laughed when I
read the story "Release your Children". It reminded me
of myself. The stories and poems in this book will
inspire you, make you cry (about God's faithfulness and
grace), and in the end - inspire action toward a closer
relationship with God and what He wants for our lives."
