In 2011, God sent Corrine Sharpe a simple, loving message: Look for the hearts. She had lost her mother to cancer. Her family struggled in the depths of grief. This divine revelation from the King of Kings healed their hearts. A Royal Love Revealed is Sharpe’s memoir of loss, belief, and love.
Are we loved? Are we valuable? Our material world has its opinions as to the nature of love. It wants to determine who or what is valuable. Inspirational author Corrine Sharpe believes that true value comes from within. It is inherent. We are made in the image of Love. Through the author’s personal moments and powerful imagery, the reader discovers that God’s revelations are not coincidental. It is the unexplainable at work. God desires to walk with us in a relationship and show us his unwavering, relentless love.
Sharpe desires readers to know that we can love because we know Christ’s pure love. God is with us and for us. His love is for all of humanity and for every part of our fractured hearts. As the reader sees God’s love move through this story, it is her prayer that you spend time with this relational God and receive his unmerited loving kindness every moment of every day. His love is unshakable, wild, and all consuming. There is no greater love than the love of the Father.
“Corrine Sharpe’s A Royal Love Revealed is a message of hope for the grieving. Sharpe’s goal was to write a book that would open readers’ eyes to see God’s “unshakeable and all consuming” love. In her memoir, Corrine shares the loss of her beloved mother and of how she found solace through the heart of God. After the death of her mom, Corrine and her family begin to see images of hearts. The heart blessings would appear in moments of great need or times of sorrow, and often came in the most unlikely of ways. As a result, the heart sightings encouraged their hearts and souls. God’s faithfulness turned their grief into joy through His miraculous love notes.”
“Captivating from the introduction on…a great read!”
“The message of the book is that God is all around us. All that we have to do is to receive Him in and then open our hearts to see Him. The heart photos in the book are beautiful and add to the story. The “Heart Beats” at the end of each chapter allow the reader to reflect on his/her own thoughts. I can’t wait to share this book with my family and friends!”
“LOVE this heartfelt message!!”
"A Royal Love Revealed was a powerful study of Corrine's journey from extreme pain and sorrow to knowing and understanding the power of God's love through finding "hearts" in the world around her. I truly believe that God meets us where we are. My significant heart finding was during a work team building project to clean up the beach. I saw a metal tip buried in the sand and pulled out a hair clip with a bright red heart at the other end. I thought, "Wow, even buried hearts can be found." But the Lord revealed to me the purpose behind my finding, as part of my heart has been buried for a very long time. So I have begun my journey with the Lord to open that part of my heart to be filled with His love. I thank Corrine for sharing her story, and the many encouraging scriptures within it, as she took us through the journey to reveal His royal love. I am also so thankful for all the beautiful Heart Sisters in our study group."
"Thank you Corrine for sharing your loving heart stories with us. I know God's presence is always with us, but when He shows us a heart it is even more special. As he showed me the time my son was going though some difficult times. I began praying to God. I needed to be somewhere and was running late. While driving I continued to pray, but was stopped by every light. I mean every light was turning red for me. But I kept praying for my son. Then right before I got on the Hart bridge there was another red light. I looked up in the sky and there was a beautiful big heart cloud. It was God telling me He is in control of my son's burdens and He has him in His hands. The rest of the way was all green lights. Thank you God for being a loving Father. I enjoyed getting to be part of the Heart Sisters and love them all."
"A Royal Love Revealed is a heartwarming story of a daughter’s love for her mother, and her journey with God during her brokenness in coping with her loss. This love story shows how God can touch your heart in miraculous ways and shows up in miraculous places if you draw near to Him. For the author, God reveals himself in the form of hearts in the most unusual places. For the author, it was hearts, but for me it was rainbows in my home. After reading this inspiring book, I loss my mother. What I experienced from this read helped me while going through the valley of sorrow for the loss of my mother. This book invites you to concentrate on the simple things in life that God allows us to enjoy in service to Him. It’s all about serving Him. This book has 12 chapters. A group of us met and discussed a chapter a week for 12 weeks. We all shared life experiences with one another and prayed together. The Holy Spirit blessed us all each week."
