“Captured Heart is a story of tragedy, loss, and homelessness, but also something more—it’s a parable of healing, hope, and redemption, illustrating the truth that we are all homeless in spirit until we meet the one who brings us home. Daneen Padilla conveys a heart for the hurting in this touching account, as well as a heart for the Father who notices every falling sparrow.”
—Bill Shepson, author and editor
Captured Heart illustrates the heart of God toward every person, regardless of background and history. It conveys the value that He places on each person, by demonstrating His desire for a personal relationship, and to reveal the individual’s true identity. I invite you to join Amy as she discovers that identity and value are not determined by other people, but by the One who made her.
Rejected and disowned as a child, and later shunned by society, Amy learned to survive. Experience taught her that she is alone and no one cares. One evening, exceptionally hungry and cold, Amy accepted the invitation to food and shelter at the rescue mission. That decision not only saved her life, but it led to the discovery of her true identity.
