Heart of a Warrior — Leaving a Godly Legacy

This is your invitation to a lunchtime adventure with author Shelly Thompson. Come hear the adventures God took a young girl on that now make up the pages of the book 'Heart of a Warrior' released on April 6th and endorsed by Karen Abercrombie, Miss Clara from the movie War Room. You'll be captivated on this lunchtime journey boarding the old Des Moines trolley to the destination of Highland Park. When you exit, you'll meet the wonderful women Warrior's, Shelly's parents and grandparents. You'll love this Mayberry like neighborhood and the testimonies of faith that God has brought to life years later in 'Heart of a Warrior'. You'll return from this lunch excursion refreshed, rejuvenated, and ready to see where your own faith adventure with God will take you. Are you ready?
