House of Mercy is moving story of God's Redemption


House of Mercy
by Erin Healy

Bethesda(Beth) has made a mistake - a mistake that could cost her everything she holds dear.   Beth is determined to put things right but that may not be possible.  At 22 you'd think she'd know better and she in fact did, but she just wanted to help.  It didn't like such a big thing.  No one would miss it.

But one wrong decision leads to another and Beth is caught up in something she never expected and her entire family will pay for it.  With no hope of coming up with the projected judgement, Beth hopes for mercy.  But when mercy doesn't come and the Borzoi family faces a new crisis, they are soon divided.

Beth is determined to fix what she has ruined, but she doesn't know how to raise the money she needs to in the time the court has given.  And how can she face Jacob and confess what she has taken from him?

Throughout House of Mercy Beth keeps seeing a gray wolf, but wolves no longer live in Colorado.  Is this her judgement from God or a tool of His mercy sent to guide her?  Following the wolf, that she names Mercy, Beth sets out to find the grandfather she never knew.  But how can this man whom is dead to her mother possibly help them?

House of Mercy is a story of mercy and of growth.  No matter how old we are, we all need to grow in our hearts, our minds, and our souls.  Mercy is not a given, it is a gift that must be bestowed.  We cannot manipulate mercy nor can we force anyone to grant it and expect it to still be mercy.  No mistake is too big for God.  There are results of our actions that cannot be altered, but none that are beyond God's forgiveness.
