The debut edition of A Mosaic Of The Heart: Inspirational Artistry (published by AuthorHouse) by new author Bernadette R. LaCrosse presents faith-filled phrases encouraging the reader to "Take it to the Lord."
A Mosaic of the Heart is beautifully illustrated and designed, with full-color pages of original painting and poetry, photography and devotional thoughts. Readers will enjoy the book’s rhythm, rhyme and captivating color. It is filled with messages of hope and healing, and mixes verse and art together on the page to create a fully-visual experience.
Those of us at Paint a Miracle have had the privilege of working with Bernie over the last few years. She has captivated us with her painting and inspired us with her poetry. This book is a wonderful compilation of her talent. Bernie’s art is a God-given gift – a gift which gives light to a world in desperate need of hope.

About the Author
Bernadette R. LaCrosse, a survivor of two separate traumatic brain injuries, has drawn upon her faith to overcome life’s challenges. She has worked in several different business arenas, including office management, business ownership and real estate sales. Her marriage was blessed with four beautiful children but ended in divorce after almost 30 years. Forced into an early retirement due to her injuries, she questioned what God wanted her to do with the rest of her life.
Beginning in January of 2007, as an answer to prayer, LaCrosse received an outpouring of inspired words in the form of poetic messages. She had already been tapping into creative expression through various forms of media at Paint a Miracle, an art studio in Rochester, Michigan for people with disabilities. Since then, her works of art have been presented to the public through poetry readings in person and on the Internet, and many of her paintings have been sold and/or donated for fund-raising events.
