Life is a mixture of bitter and sweet experiences. The struggles we face can overwhelm us with pain and disappointment too heavy to carry. In the midst of despair, we can lose our way and become paralyzed by fear, trauma, and heartache. Are you tired of living this way? Would you like to experience hope and come alive again? Then this book is for you.


This devotional contains forty letters—words that represent God's still, small voice speaking to author's heart as she faced difficult health and family crises. These tender writings and accompanying Biblical passages will take you on a journey of love, freedom, healing, hope, and joy. Will you open your heart to Him, Dear One? As you read the pages of this book, may you embrace the Heavenly Father's love and engage with Him in a delightful journey toward His promises.

Here is what readers have to say:

"Wow, what a book full of emotion! I loved seeing the heart of the Author showing what she has been though and how God was there in the midst of everything and His power carried her through. Each page had great closing thoughts and a reference point for Scripture. New believers, non believers and life long church-goers can gain a lot from the pages of this book. I highly recommend!" - Dustin A.

"Love – the greatest gift – is revealed in the pages of this daily devotional. The promises of The Father are explored in such a way that His love becomes tangible. Some of the days were very emotional for me as I started to truly explore the depth and vast width of His love for me. As the days passed and I became more comfortable with His undeniable love for me, I began to better understand that The Father wants to walk with me as much as I want to walk with Him. His Promises became more and more alive for me. I can see myself reading this devotional over and over again and growing more in the fact that God IS love.” - Angela F.

"This spiritually inspiring book reflects and encourages the desired intimate relationship between our Heavenly Father and His children! It reveals the heart of almighty God for the reader through loving words and supportive scriptures. The reader will find God’s comfort, hope, strength, and love through the Divine messages of this book!" - D. W.

"This book is a wonderful resource for dealing with anxiety and overcoming trauma. Each devotional invites me to open my heart and mind to Jesus -- assures me that He is a safe place, and I can put all my confidence in Him. Here is an excerpt from Day 7: Receive My Goodness -
'I love you, My Dear Child. You don’t have to survive on your own. I will take care of you. I am always with you. I will be your strength, and I will work everything for your good. Take a breath, Sweet Child, and relax in my heart. Allow Me to show you the warmth of my love.'
I've really loved reading this book!" - Belle F

"This book is sooo amazing. You feel our Father speaking to you as you read. When you are going through something, you feel His love through this book!" - Grace G.

Transformed by Love: Finding Freedom in the Father’s Heart by Kelly Wheeler is an inspirational 40-day devotional. Each day offers encouragement and hope in the form of a letter from God. Many challenging issues that everyone experiences are dealt with, from striving to practicing forgiveness. At the end of each reading scripture, references are given and Wheeler invites the reader to reflect on how the message may apply to his or her life. Daily guidance is given in how to effectively and positively deal with life’s challenges and the doubts we all face from time to time. Wheeler shares trials she has experienced in her own life and how a life-changing encounter with God healed her. The support and hope that the author received are shared in these pages.

Transformed by Love: Finding Freedom in the Father’s Heart by Kelly Wheeler is an enjoyable devotional. This is a book that can be read 40 days in a row and also one that can be picked up and opened for comfort and hope on difficult days or in trying times. I really liked the constant reminders throughout this book that God loves us and is always by our side. In the complex and at times chaotic world we live in, these reminders of God’s love and guidance are very soothing to the soul. This devotional offers moments of peace and reflection. Although many different topics are addressed in this book, I feel that the overarching theme is to know that God loves each of us wholly and unconditionally. - Reviewed by Melinda Facal from Reader's Favorite
