Grandma’s Little Book of Poetry: The Story of God’s Plan of Salvation is a “wonderful book is about the successes and failures of real life and the story of the Good News of God’s love for us. All of Helen’s novels are wonderful to read, but more importantly, they are a balm for the soul and an education to the seeker.”

When God Broke Grandma´s Heart provides a different view on life´s troubles. It is a well-written and enthralling book about Victoria´s memories, which she wishes to share with her granddaughter. It is no common novel, but a book which asks its readers to think and to open their hearts. Therefore, this book is a true treasure and stands out from other attempts to explain how sorrow can be turned into joy. Though a challenging read, this book offers uplifting turning points and surprising conclusions and while it is not meant as a solution for every problem, it is a valuable pointer, showing in a loving way that the key to forgiveness lies within oneself. It demonstrates that with God’s help, grace and mercy, the forgiveness we offer leads to our healing which leads us into joy. This unusual book is written in a very touching way; it never judges human weaknesses and it embraces the reader with the true meaning of love and kindness. Helen Glowacki has the gift of making her characters come to life and confronting the reader with vivid details which draws them into the story and brings them to a way of life which is created from what the characters have learned. This is a book truly worth reading twice and beautifully suited to be a gift. I was reminded that the name “Victoria” originates from the Latin “Victoria” which stands for “victory”. When God Broke Grandma´s Heart invites its readers to become such a “Victoria.”

Wow! I’ve just finished reading the third book in this series of wonderful novels and can’t find words great enough to describe them. At a time when there are so many troubles in the world and so many people who suffer, these books are a real eye opener about God’s plan of salvation and why bad things happen to good people. They remind me of Jim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins “Left Behind Series”. These books are a MUST READ!”

I am the wife of a retired District Evangelist. Many times during my husband’s ministry I was aware of a parishioner living through a difficult circumstance, but because of my husband’s responsibilities to provide assistance and counseling, I was not always able to help in the matter. Helen Gumienny Glowacki’s The Grandma Series are a wonderful way to provide help and support to someone in need when other avenues of communication are closed. These books are inspiring, uplifting, educational, and heartwarming. Every story ends with a beautiful example of how God explains our pain, renews our hope, shows us the way out of our situation and creates a miracle for our lives. I love this series.

As a counselor to many who struggle with challenging circumstances in their lives, I found “When God Broke Grandma’s Heart” an inspirational story of hope. Despite cruelty and betrayal from those she trusted, and the multiple adversities Grandma endured, she was able to find strength and understanding through her faith in and love of God. Helen Gumienny Glowacki beautifully portrays the phases that individuals move through and the transformation that can occur when one is able to let go of negative events in their past and strive towards the understanding that regardless of how unjust, none of the pain was for naught.

Star of Bethlehem

Helen Gumienny Glowacki’s novel When Grandma Chased The Spirits serves the reader in a similar manner as the Star of Bethlehem served earlier seekers….it leads the reader to a beautiful spiritual experience. It shows us the gifts God offers that leads us to inner peace and understanding. Helen’s work is so special that I believe it will become a shining navigational tool for many who search for understanding just as the Star of Bethlehem once served as a navigational tool for those who searched for the Christ child. Helen Gumienny Glowacki has, with extraordinary skill, created characters who express their love for others in a beautiful way, and have the desire to go the extra mile to help those struggling with doubt, and those who have been misguided. Through the manuscripts and journals created by “grandma”, and discovered by the various characters in Helen’s stories, one can actually see into the caring nature and loving heart of the author. Her stories eloquently reveal her love for God and her diligent search for truth.

By far this is the deepest and most meaningful novel I have ever read, It touched my soul and brought tears to my eyes. Children of God are not exempt from sorrow, pain and difficult circumstances. We go through the fires of life now to be moulded, shaped and prepared for eternal life, when the devil will be cast into the pit of fire where he cannot bring us harm. Helen’s understanding of what goes on in the world is amazing and her understanding of God’s work is astounding. Through her eyes one can gain a better understanding of the mysteries of God’s word. This story is about a family that truly loved God even through difficult times and through great times and stand firm in their belief and trust in God. A mother loses her baby,a brother dies a sudden death after a hard life, but also trusted God and all seek answers through scripture. For Jim it was more difficult because he’d had a bad experience with the church he attended and also because of his mother’s experience,but despite these challenges, God had a plan to draw him back. Our Heavenly Father says, “I will never leave you, I will always be at your side and I will never give you anything that you can’t handle.” I recommend “Abiding Faith, Hidden Treasure” to everyone; it will make you understand things better in terms of God’s plan as it did me.
