“The poetry brings sunshine
to my day, fills my heart with warmth.
I started my day with sadness
dealing with my illness but now
I feel so much better.
The book is the best medicine!

“Thank you for helping to Heal our patients with your gifts —
the books of hope send therapeutic messages to our patients!”

On the night of September 11, 2001, Alexandra Villard de Borchgrave prayed for a way to bring comfort to those who had suffered the worst loss imaginable. That prayer led her to write three books of poetry, Healing Light, Heavenly Order, and Beloved Spirit. Thousands of books have been given as gifts to the 9/11 Survivors’ Families, military families, and people experiencing great personal tragedy.

That same prayer has also led to the founding of the Light of Healing Hope Foundation and to finding a fresh way through kind words and beautiful images to bring comfort to those who are suffering.

“I thought Alexandra’s beautiful little book with its inspiring words and lovely images might bring comfort and healing to the grieving families of the September 11 victims.”
