In "Learning to Love with the Saints," Heimann shares her "own love story with the Lord and shares how the saints have influenced her in her perception of love over the years." Part memoir and Part "Life of the Saints," Heimann tells the story of her life while incorporating the impact of certain saints who shaped her understanding at different times in her life. St. Therese, St. Pope John Paul II, Blessed John Henry Newman, and St. Sharbel are all featured.
Heimann, also the author of "Seven Saints for Seven Virtues," shares the ups and downs of her life with honesty as well as with the perspective looking back at a lifetime can provide. She tells of her failed relationships with men and of her time away from the Church, as well as what brought her back to the faith and what taught her what love and marriage should entail. She also shares stories of her family of origin and her own struggles with health.
At its heart, "Learning to Love with the Saints" is a spiritual memoir of how God has worked in Heimann's life. Her story is a worthy addition to the genre, bearing testimony to how God loves each one of us and works in our lives to bring us close to Him.
