Straight from My Heart:
"I have just finished reading Jacqui DeLorenzo’s second book, “Straight from My Heart.” Jacqui DeLorenzo puts her heart in the pages of her book. More than anything else, what comes across is her longing for the welfare of others, a caring that springs from her deep-rooted faith. She begins her book with an exploration of hope, then moves on to the efficacy of faith, and ends with the power of love. She underscored each theme with prose and poetry. Throughout the book, Jacqui provides stories about overcoming adversity from her own life and those of her contributors. As she quotes several times in the book, “Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you respond to it.” Skeptics may dismiss some of the anecdotes as coincidence or dreaming but that is not a problem for Jacqui. For the skeptics, no amount of proof may suffice. For Jacqui and her contributors, no proof is necessary."
Chuck Miceli, Author, “Amanda’s Room”
"DeLorenzo has done it again. Her second book, Straight from My Heart, is chock-full of heartwarming anecdotes and inspiring true stories of people who demonstrate unsinkable spirits in the face of unthinkable circumstances. This is the book to have by your side if you need inspiration to get through your own trying times. Jacqui will convince you to never give up."
