Healing Hearts ~ Letters from Arianna

Dear Friends,

As I walked out of the doctor’s office, a smile from within came upon me as I now am healed and I have a healthy heart beating loud in my chest. My cardiologist who has been treating me for the past 2 years was very pleased with my progress and she said I am 90% healed from the heart condition of Takotsubo Cardiomyopathy that had been diagnosed in September 2010. I have been fighting against the condition of a “broken heart” and as well as the toxicity in my digestive tract for over 2 years now.

The journey has been more revealing and healing than I could ever imagined and I know that I would not be here experiencing the wholeness of health if I did not have the incredible support system of family and friends. I want to thank each of you who sat with me in the dark hours crying and asking God, “Why me?’ and those of you who prayed constantly for me, along with those of you who supported me financially through this time of true brokenness and confusion. You have become deeply engrafted into my life and I am ever so thankful for each of you. Thank you for believing in me and in what only God can heal.

I still need to guard my heart and be careful as a relapse can happen at any time, but I am learning how to take the stresses and the emotions and turn them into opportunities to grow.

In reflection of the past 2 years I can honestly say that through this time, I have never been closer to the Lord. My heart is so grateful for all the pain because I have lived through the depths of despair and He truly was holding me in the palm of His Hands. Plus I have learned internally and spiritually what it means in the Scriptures that, ‘The Lord is close to the broken hearted”. For me, He has become the Lover of my Soul and my Everything!

I have a story to tell and I know it is time to begin somehow. As I look at my life, I realize I have spent most of my life giving it away… and teaching others how to follow Jesus Christ with total abandonment to the Cause of the Cross.

Healing Hearts is a common theme in my life experiences and I want to be able to make a difference with walking others through that healing process. Right now I am praying about what that looks like and how I can be used in that way.

I want to ask you to keep walking with me in my journey to continue serving, teaching, & mentoring this generation to follow Christ. I am dedicated to investing my life and my love of God through the arts, international missions, and to disciple others to live passionately the life faith.

Most of you know that I have lived totally by donations and support to serve the Lord full-time for over 25 years and God has truly been my soul provider. I trust Him and I know that inviting you to join me in the financial part of my life is humbling. Yet, I have learned that openness is golden. Therefore, it would be an extreme blessing for me if you would pray about partnering with me and joining our financial support team in order to support me and this work that I know God has called me to do.
